Posted at 11:21 AM, Feb 09, 2019

National Pizza Day is celebrated annually February 9 and this year, IHOP is looking to get in on the action with the "Pancizza."

Yup. It's a pizza-sized pancake.

So what exactly is this colossal breakfast food? According to IHOP's description, they took their "famous buttermilk pancakes, made them bigger, gave them some toppings, sliced them up, and put them in a pizza box for National Pizza Day.”

The Pancizza comes in three varieties according to IHOP's website: original, cupcake and bacon and cheddar.

The downside for a lot of pancake fanatics will be its availability though. While it'll be around until Sunday, February 10, the Pancizza is only being sold in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and Dallas.

But never fear. If you just have to be part of the Pancizza phenomenon, the restaurant chain is also selling T-shirts online to celebrate this behemoth pancake. Who knew IHOP even had an online store?
