The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers may be a minor league baseball team, but their stadium eats are in the major leagues. This season, the team is embracing the appeal of the over-the-top stunt foods and will give fans the option to pound pizza-wrapped burgers during the game, according to Fox 11. Who needs popcorn and hot dogs when you can just eat a heart attack?
While the item is called the Meatlovers Pizza Burger, the name wholly undersells it. The burger features not one, but four beef patties that are wrapped in in a pepperoni, bacon, and sausage DiGiorno pizza. One burger will cost you $22 and likely 5 years of your life; although, it might be worth it considering it gives you the chance to feast on two of greatest junk foods in one sitting. The stadium has a history of offering over-the-top burgers and is bringing back its Big Mother Funnel Burger which features funnel cakes for buns.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers aren’t the first to turn to frozen pizza brands for burger buns. In 2014, the stunt burger masters at PYT debuted a burger featuring Ellio’s pizza for buns. But PYT didn’t stop there: For an added layer of excitement and grease, the team deep-fried the pizza slices before layering it with a meatball patty, mozzarella, and provolone.
