Innovative flavor mash-up is as genius as it sounds, with 28 premium hot dog bites baked directly into the pizza crust for $11.99
PLANO, Texas, June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — It’s been to Australia. Thailand. The Middle East. And, the United Kingdom. It’s even been as close as Canada. Now, finally, it’s coming to America. Pizza + Hot Dogs is here.
Pizza Hut, the world’s largest pizza company, is bringing together two of America’s most popular treats – pizza and hot dogs – in the form of its all-new Hot Dog Bites Pizza. The American rendition of the popular global pie features 28 premium mini hot dog bites baked into the crust and is served with a side of French’s mustard.
Available while supplies last, beginning at 11 a.m. on June 18, the flavor-packed, large one-topping pizza will be offered at $11.99.
“We are committed to bringing more flavor and fun to the pizza category than anyone else, and our new Hot Dog Bites Pizza is an absolutely epic flavor mash-up inspired by two of America’s favorite foods,” said Jared Drinkwater, Vice President of Marketing, Pizza Hut. “Last year, Americans ate an estimated 150 million hot dogs over the July 4th holiday. We’ve taken the appropriate steps to notify the National Sausage and Hot Dog Council that they will need to adjust their statistics in 2015, thanks to Pizza Hut’s introduction of the Hot Dog Bites Pizza.”
The introduction of the limited-time offer conveniently coincides with the peak of hot dog-eating season, including the official start of summer, Independence Day, and July as National Hot Dog Month. The Pizza Hut Hot Dog Bites pizza is available with the choice of the traditional or salted pretzel crust flavors. All options are served with a free side of French’s mustard.
“We definitely wanted to make this pizza unique compared to how it’s been seen in other parts of the world, which is how we landed on offering the hot dogs as bite-sized, incorporating our crust flavors and offering the mustard on the side,” said Drinkwater. “We think the latest innovations will make the Hot Dog Bites Pizza a huge hit in the United States.”
The Hot Dog Bites pizza will be available for dine-in, carryout or delivery at all 6,300 Pizza Hut locations around the country. For more information, visit www.pizzahut.com.
