Pizza Hut released the new Durian Cheese Pizza earlier this month and we'll be honest... it sounds kinda gross, yet delicious???

We were conflicted! That flavour combination of durian and cheese on top of a pizza made a lot of people confused (and slightly worried).

Netizens were quick to voice out concerns

Meanwhile, others thought that durian and cheese is already a tried and tested recipe... so putting them on a pizza wasn't such a big deal

With all the hype surrounding this new pizza treat, we had to try it ourselves

From the moment we picked up our delivery order, we were immediately hit with that unmistakably pungent durian smell. Yum!

Made with natural durian pulp and topped with plump durian flesh on every slice, it's a dream come true if you love the King of Fruits

Our office mates who don't like durian totally didn't appreciate all this durian goodness. Boo. But they did note that the smell didn't bother them :P

All warm and toasty, the pizza was loaded with ooey gooey cheese

Durian = good. Cheese = good. Durian + cheese = omgomgomgomg #meleleh.

We dived right in and were all impressed with the sheer amount of delicious cheesy goodness.

The durian flesh itself is slightly browned from the oven, making it sweet, warm, and oh-so-satisfying

What surprised us was that the cheese and durian actually balanced each other out, and the flavours worked really well together!

Some of us felt it was a sweet dessert like durian cheesecake (but without the cake), while others thought of it as a savoury durian dish because of the saltiness of the cheese.

It tastes creamy and rich. Although we wouldn't mind having MORE durian piled on top. Mmmmmm!

So, is it as good as the OG fruit?

Durian cheese pizza is not the same as pure durian. Obviously. If you want a sweet pizza treat with durian, this is for you!

Just like durian crepe, durian pancakes, durian cheesecake, durian tarts, and any durian dessert... it's not going to taste exactly like the actual fruit.

But this Durian Cheese Pizza from Pizza Hut is legit yummy. If you want to just enjoy durian in all its natural glory, go and buy a durian lah. ;)

Priced at RM44.50 a la carte, it's a great way to indulge in your durian cravings, especially with Hari Kebangsaan just around the corner

We love that Pizza Hut is celebrating Malaysia by standing tall and proud with their durian creation.
