Pizza Hut’s Five-Cheese Pizza Crust Is A Pocketful (Photos)
By Cooking Panda
Pizza Hut’s classic stuffed-crust pizza fare is getting even cheesier (and it’s not just because of its name).
The Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza is exchanging cheese-stuffed crust with pockets of cheese, instead. Each pocket brims with a five-cheese blend of mozzarella, provolone, white cheddar, Asiago and fontina cheese, according to Foodbeast. And from the looks of it, it could be Pizza Hut’s cheesiest pizza yet.
The limited-edition, one-of-a-kind pizza features 16 “pockets” packed with sizzling hot cheese, which is the perfect meal to share with friends, family and solo (if you can handle it!).
This isn’t Pizza Hut’s first run with a crazy cheese-stuffed pizza. In fact, in 2013 Pizza Hut released its Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza, which was stuffed with mini “jacuzzi-shaped cups” of pure, melted mozzarella cheese. At the time of its release, Pizza Hut’s master chef said he created the crazy pizza because consumers always wanted more cheese. The master chef is still correct, four years later.
The holidays are right around the corner and party planning is nigh! According to Fox News, Pizza Hut’s Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza release is coupled with a ‘Tis the Cheese’n Holiday Starter Package, a pack with all the bells and whistles for a holiday party.
The holiday package comes with cheese pizza merch for a complete Christmas pizza celebration: pizza string lights (“a real crowd cheeser” the website writes) and a pizza-shaped ornament (for the Christmas tree), a holiday sweater, pizza decor and a pizza-scented candle to set the mood.
Unfortunately for us, a pizza party does not come free or easily; customers must enter for a chance to win these special party essentials. But, the rules are very simple. Participants can tag their next tweet to Pizza Hut’s official Twitter account with the following: a pizza slice emoji and gift emoji with the hashtag “#TisTheCheesen.”
As Foodbeast pointed out, there’s no telling the end date of this limited-edition release, but considering the Christmas-themed promotion, we can expect it to last through the holidays. That’s just one of the many things we’re grateful for this year.5 cheese crust, Pizza Hut new crust, ultimate cheese crust pizza
