One of the most famous dishes to come out of China is Beijing duck. It’s no surprise then that this iconic dish has served as inspiration for various other dishes. One of those is a Beijing duck pizza that was recently on sale at Pizza Hut here in Lanzhou. It’s topped with roasted duck, cucumber and hoisin sauce, just like the original.
Unfortunately I found the duck a bit limp and tasteless. It also misses the crispy skin that Beijing duck is so famous for. The other negative was that there wasn’t enough hoisin sauce on there to give it that tang and sweetness it needs. The parts with the sauce though tasted pretty good, and the cucumber gave the dish a nice crunch. All in all not bad, but I still prefer the original.
