Asda is launching a Christmas dinner pizza and Twitter says no

Would you eat brussel sprouts on a pizza?

Forget slaving away over Christmas dinner this year (read: watching someone else cook it while you slope off with a mulled wine). Asda has made December’s greatest meal a doddle by piling it all onto a pizza.

From 7 December, the supermarket will be stocking its first ever Christmas pizza, complete with chicken (ahem, Asda, it should be turkey but we’ll let it slide), roast potatoes, cranberry sauce and that most controversial vegetable: Brussels sprouts. 

Chicken, sprouts, roast potatoes and cranberry sauce: heaven or hell?

If this collision of foods is filling you with horror then form an orderly queue behind the many Twitter users who have taken to the social media platform to voice their outrage.

The pizza will cost £2.60 for a 10 inch, or £4 for a 14 inch. Good luck trying to work out how many you will need to feed the entire family - you might want to add in some salad to balance it. Actually, forget we said that. 

If you really feel the need to serve the best meal of the year on a doughy platter we suggest you at least upgrade to the Pizza Express offering: a roast potato, beef and horseradish festive pizza. It’s a long way from nirvana, but at least there’s not a Brussels sprout in sight.
