British supermarket chain Morrisons have come up with a genius way to combine a Sunday roast and your favourite take-away – a Yorkshire Pudding Pizza.
That’s right, cashing in on the craze that saw Yorkshire pudding wraps last Christmas and Yorkshire pudding burritos, Morrisons have released their own cheese and batter combination.
For a limited time only you can indulge in a classic crispy Yorkshire pudding base – made in Doncaster in South Yorkshire – filled with tomato sauce and mozzarella.
Unfortunately, these creations are strictly for meat-eaters as they come in just two flavours – classic pepperoni and meat feast (meatballs, pepperoni, spicy beef and jalapeño chillies).
Launched in celebration of Yorkshire Pudding Day on Saturday February 3, the 6.5 inch treats will only be available in 491 Morrisons stores until February 20 and cost £3 each.

Proud of their hybrid food creation, Morrisons Yorkshire Pudding Expert, Jenny Dixon said: ‘Everyone loves Yorkshire Pudding and everyone loves pizza, so we are combining the two to create the ultimate comfort food for Yorkshire Pudding Day.
‘The crust is made the same way as a typical Yorkshire Pudding and is topped the same way as one of our pizzas. We’re looking forward to hearing what customers think but we hope that they’ll love it!’
News of the pizza quickly went viral on social media, with many customers not quite knowing how to react to the supermarket’s mash-up.
One shocked customer tweeted: ‘I am both disgusted and impressed in equal measures.’
While others were desperate to try the new style pizzas.
‘Someone get me that Yorkshire pudding pizza please and thank you,’ one eager fan tweeted.
Another said: ‘Yorkshire pudding? Good. Pizza? Good. Yorkshire pudding pizza? Get out of my dreams and into my belly.’
Another joked: ‘I serve everything in a giant Yorkshire Pudding.. About to have my porridge in one… K I’m joking but I loooove Yorkshire pudding & I looove pizza..’
