This Pizza Topped With Peeps Is A Culinary Crime (Photo)

What is with the internet’s obsession with food hybrids these days?
Some of the combos are sort of understandable, albeit total culinary monstrosities. While I can’t say, for example, that I would ever in good conscience go out and buy an order of Mac N’ Cheetos from Burger King, I do understand the product’s appeal: Cheese and crunch works together; it’s excessive, but it follows logic.
But this? This is just too much.
Somebody had the bright (read: heinously misguided) idea to try and get into the Easter spirit by combining a culinary classic — cheese pizza — with a staple of the Easter holidays: Peeps candy.
Look, I get the Peeps Oreo thing. It’s just two sweet things mushed together into one cookie. But Peeps do not belong on pizza. I don’t care what you say.
The person who tweeted out the picture tried to defend their despicable mashup by likening the flavor profile to pineapple on pizza, only better.
I get what they’re going for, okay? Pineapples are sweet; Peeps are sweeter.
But this is garbage!
What’s crazy is that so many people responded to the tweet positively, saying that they’d be interested in sampling the Peeps pizza pie; however, others were more skeptical:
“I mean this looks awful but yes it is better than pineapple pizza,” tweeted one user.
“This is a crime against both God and man,” wrote another.
Where do you fall in this controversy?
