Today's Review: Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Stuffed Crust

A new Pizza Hut menu landed on my doorstep this morning, advertising an idea so amazing I went ahead and ordered it for lunch. Hot dog stuffed crust. If that doesn't get you excited, then you probably just don't like meat as much as me or something. But either way, the person who thought of this is a genius.

What we have here is a series of hot dogs squeezed into the regular stuffed crust base all around the length of the pizza. So when the topping is devoured, there's still a meaty treat to be had in the crust. While they are just standard hot dogs, they complement the dough pretty nicely, and it all comes with a complimentary mustard drizzle. I don't normally like mustard, but this is quite smooth, not too spicy, and I certainly didn't mind drizzling it over the entire pizza.

The only problem is that they took the cheese out of the crust. I'm sure they couldn't put the normal amount of cheese in due to space contraints, but I would've loved to have both meat and cheese in one orgasmic crust. Everything is better with cheese. Still, as it is, it's an awesome idea, and actually very well executed.

My rating: 4/5


  1. Yes, it's a fantastic idea..

    1. Not that I want to get into a pizza fanboy argument, but if Domino's thought of it first then why have they only just started selling it?

  2. I'd like to get permission from you to use this photo in one episode of a TV show that's all about food. We have an episode about 'stuffed' foods and we want to talk about this pizza, so I'm seeking out all the photos I can. Please email me at
