It's Official: Pizza Hut Really Is Selling a Pizza Surrounded by 28 Hot Dogs

Pizza Hut

Yes, pizza is technically an Italian creation, but we’re not sure where this crazy combo originates from.

Pizza Hut has combined a pseudo-American meal with another to create the ultimate coupling of foods: Pizza and hot dogs. Or more specifically, pizza with a pigs in a blanket crust. Basically, your favorite team scoring a home run (during the world series) for your taste buds.

From the center, Pizza Hut’s latest creation looks just like a normal large pizza, covered in gooey cheese and pepperoni. But get to the edge, and where you’d normally see a crunchy crust, and instead there’s a line of pigs in a blanket instead — with a side of mustard along with it, naturally.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Pizza Hut has experimented with non-traditional crusts. Late last year, Pizza Hut served up a Doritos-crust pizza in Australia. Two weeks ago, the land down under got another unique offering with a meat-pie-stuffed crust.

And in April, they created the pizza of a middle school class’s dreams, a pretzel crust stuffed with bacon mac and cheese.

This is one of the first of the unconventional crusts that will be available to the public in the United States. And coming in at $11.99, it’s a bargain for what’s got to end up being a number of hot dogs and a large pizza — especially when compared with ballpark prices.
