Pizza Hut adds a 'too much coriander' pizza to its lineup in Japan

By Oona McGee, SoraNews24

Whether you call it coriander or cilantro, pakuchi, as it’s known in Japan, is a divisive herb at the best of times. Those who hate the pungent plant won’t go anywhere near it, while those who love it just can’t get enough of it.

This hate-it-or-love-it nature of the herb has led food providers in Japan to double down on their coriander offerings in the past, and now Pizza Hut is joining the fray with a pizza that delivers way more coriander than usual.

▼ Not your standard amount of coriander


Called the “Pakuchi Sugite Kusa“, which translates to “Too Much Corainder Herb“, this pizza is said to contain so much coriander it’ll shock even the Z Generation.

The Gen Z share of the market might be the target consumer for the product, but coriander lovers of all ages will appreciate the simplicity of the new pizza, which contains prawns topped with tomato sauce and yangnyeom sauce, so you can “fully enjoy the charm of coriander“.

▼ Despite the massive amount of coriander on the pizza, Pizza Hut says it makes each slice taste delicious.


According to Pizza Hut, this new offering ties in perfectly with the chain’s brand slogan, “Always more than you can imagine”, and it’ll be sold in a medium size nationwide until April 9, priced at 2,500 yen for eat-in diners and 2,800 yen for delivery.

That is way too much. Hope there is something underneath the pile.

I like coriander, but that does not look good.

No worries, the sales pic NEVER looks like what you actually get.

What burns my pepperoni is when they show pepperoni on top of the pie in the sales pic but then when you actually buy one it’s under the cheese.

Too much, now if it is Mexican food, go right ahead.

For me, any amount of cilantro is too much cilantro. (Yes, I know that most people love the stuff. I just don't understand why.)

There is no such thing as too much coriander, I have made salads using coriander rather than lettuce as the main green with delicious results.

I can never have enough cilantro and feel the same about arugula. We always have it fresh from the garden and use at least one, if not both, daily. I make a white sauce seafood pizza and top it after cooking with both fresh like this and it is a big hit.
