Pigs in blankets a favourite trimming for many on a Christmas dinner plate, but now you can enjoy the meaty treat on a pizza ahead of the big day.

Discount German retailer Lidl has unveiled the ultimate Christmas combo that brings together two of the UK’s favourites in one genius festive treat – the Pigs in Blankets Festive Pizza.

Costing just £3.29, shoppers can indulge in a stoned-baked sourdough base pizza topped with a rich Mediterranean style tomato sauce, red onions, as well as a Christmassy cranberry sauce and of course and pigs in blankets.
