Pizza Hut launched a lame gift exchange this morning via Twitter, offering customers who got re-gifts and lame prezzies the opportunity to "trade" them for a $10 gift card. Customers didn't actually have to send Pizza Hut their unwanted presents, of course, just a list of what they got marked with a hashtag. It was more of a means of drumming up some social media buzz after the holiday. Sadly, those who won the gift cards Stateside won't be able to use those vouchers on Pizza Hut's latest rediculous creation: the double decker "Cheesy Opera" pies, which just launched in Hong Kong.

There are two versions of the pizza, one of which comes with scallops, clam meat, Japanese cucumber, mushroom, peach, and red pepper on pesto sauce with a swirl of honey mustard. Sounds, um, interesting -- sorta like that seafood Wendy's burger that was topped with caviar. The second two-tiered offering sounds slightly more appealing, and is made with chicken, ham, beef, pork, tomato, oregano, and red onion on tomato sauce, which is then topped with a smaller, thin crust pizza with one of two topping combinations. Sounds like this symphony of flavors indeed.

Granted the gift cards wouldn't cover the entirety of these massive, two-layered pies. The scallop version retails for about $28, and the pepperoni-laden one for $22. We'll stick with the holiday leftovers, thanks.
