The Mega Mac is really a double Big Mac. Instead of two all-beef patties, you get four. You still get the special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, and onions served on a sesame seed bun—it’s just bigger. The Mega Mac is not officially available in the United States, but you can order the sandwich in many countries around the world, including Australia, China, Japan, Turkey, and Singapore.

Crown Crust Pizza

The Crown Crust Pizza is a pizza with mini-cheeseburgers baked into the crust. It resembles a crown (hence the name) and is topped with beef, lettuce, tomato slices, and drizzled with special Pizza Hut sauce. If cheeseburgers aren’t your thing, you can order the pie with a chicken fillet crown instead. The menu item is available at various Pizza Hut restaurants in the Middle East.
