This just in: the pizza has married the hot dog and their honeymoon will take them through Pizza Hut chains across America. In other words, Pizza Hut is bringing their hot dog crust pizza to the USA.
The hot dog crust pizza, which is immensely popular in South Korea and other Pizza Hut outlets across the globe, is a spin off from the original Pizza Hut’s stuffed crust pizza. Instead of stuffing the crust with cheese, the crust is stuffed with hot dog sausages. 28 of them. In merely 6 days (June 18th!), Pizza Hut will release this treat to the American public. Strangely enough, this move contradicts with Pizza Hut’s recent campaign in the US, where they advertised that they would focus on ‘artisanal’ food. Stuffing hot dogs in a crust seems far from artisanal – but hey, it is kind of an innovation, right? Reactions on Twitter were similarly confused:

As an enthusiast of both hot dogs and self-loathing, Pizza Hut is really gunning for my business.

I refuse to vomit in isolation. Here is a pic of new Pizza Hut pizza with 28 mini hot dogs embedded in the crust. pic.twitter.com/rZuLizydKL
