McDonald’s Pizza Mac

McDonald’s Pizza Mac – Germany

McDonald’s Germany have added a new burger to its Basics Menu – the Pizza Mac.

The Basics Menu in Germany is similar to the Saver Menu in the UK with products available from 1€.

The Pizza Mac is joined alongside the new McDouble Western – this looks a much improved burger to the Western Beef we reviewed back in 2013.

This latest offering from McDonald’s Germany features a Pizza Bun, Hamburger Patty, Emmental Cheese, Onions and Pizza Sauce.

Nutritionally the burger clocks in at 408 kcal so is fairly respectable for the calorie counter.

The official (translated) description as follows:

Ciao, Bello! Our favourite Italian, the Pizza Mac, is the funky burger who shows at first glance how much flavour he has. Crispy outside with delicious mozzarella spread, inside with double beef, delicately melting cheese, onions and spicy tomato sauce. Not only does it look damn good, it tastes great too!

The Basics Menu also features the McDouble Chili Cheese (pictured below) – ingredients on this build include spicy chili-cheese sauce and jalapeños.

This isn’t the first ‘pizza burger’ to be available on the menu at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Long term readers of BURGER LAD® will remember the following three menu items…

Firstly, there was the crowd-sourcing competition ‘My Burger’ winner, the McPizza Pepperoni – you can read our review here.

This was followed by The Italian Classic, which was on-sale in week two of Great Tastes of the World in September 2015.

Then there was The Italian Stack which was on the menu in November 2017 – our review here.

What do you think of the Pizza Mac? Would you like to see it in the UK?

    Had one of these a couple of weekends ago. It was superb. The pizza-style sauce was fantastic, though the cheese-topped bun was nothing too special

    They definitely need this in the UK.

    Had one of these on Monday in Hamburg Airport. Very tasty. Better than the double cheeseburger. Let’s hope this makes it to the UK.

    You defo should get one in Germany a chunk less than 3 euros and spot on had 3 In five days going through train stations. Interesting getting a strong variation on a burger without it going into the top price band being double cheeseburger based (They them seleve are far more expensive there mind too).
