Pizza Hut Hot Dog Stuffed Crust

I wanna start by saying, I am not a big fan of the pizza (or pasta for that matter) at pizza hut. It is greasy and of average cost and taste (I prefer Panago for late night pizza). Anyways I first saw the commericals for hot dog stuffed crust ads early last year and I it really piqued my curiosty. According to Beverly D'Cruz (marketing director of Pizza Hut Canada) "The innovative chefs at Pizza Hut have taken two classic favourites - pizza and hot dogs - and found a delicious way for them to be enjoyed together!" Anyways there were some coupons sent out for a free stuffing of the crust and all of this culminated into ordering in some pizza hut  the other night to finally try it out.

The delivery service over the phone is pretty standard so nothing special there. We ordered a large Hawaiian pizza (thats the only size hot dog crust comes in) and we also got an order of garlic parmesean chicken wings.

The pizza came pretty quick and it didn't look too different from normal pizza. The pizza itself was fine again arriving hot, greasy, a bit lopsided, and with a good amount of topping evenly distributed.

The crust was where the money was at. The hotdog itself tasted like a weiner bun (like from Garden Bakery or any other Asian bakery for that matter). There was a bit of sweetness and the hot dogs weren't those super cheap quality ones either. They were cut into about quarter hot dog size chunks. It wasn't too heavy or I thought it complimented the pizza well as oppposed to just plain crust. It was pretty filling and I was only able to eat two slices before feeling full.

The chicken wings were dripping with oil (you can see it pooling in the aluminum foil) and the garlic paremesean sauce was slathered on thick. They were tasty enough but again nothing too special going on there.

Overall this is still Pizza Hut pizza which I consider run of the mill average fast food pizza (on par with Little Caesars, Dominos, Pizza 73, etc). The hot dog stuffed option is fairly inexpensive ($3 extra) and adds a small bonus to the meal. I consider it almost to be eating two different meals; pizza with a hot dog side dish. It would be something to try for sure and if some of my other friends wanted Pizza Hut anyways I would definitely stuff the crust again. Verdict: 80/100 (only rating the crust).
