Buckle up your taste buds for the pizza eating ride of a lifetime! Two worlds are about to collide resulting in something so unbelievable, so daring and so completely irresistible you'll want to run to your nearest Pizza Hut to try it for yourself. It's Pizza Hut's new Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza - and the most talked about pizza of the year is coming to Canada on October 15, 2012!

The legendary pizza-hot dog combination is made by stuffing a juicy Angus beef hot dog into Pizza Hut's famous stuffed crust. It's available in medium or large pizza* with your choice of toppings and is the same great price as regular stuffed crust pizza. Each pizza comes with a Heinz Ketchup Dip and Squeeze and Heinz Honey Mustard Dip.

The sensational Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza gained international attention earlier this year when it launched in the UK. And the reviews were so positive that Pizza Hut is bringing it across the pond so that Canadians can get a slice of the action!

"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!" says Beverley D'Cruz, Director of Marketing at Pizza Hut Canada. "The result…well, you'll have to try it for yourself but I can promise that it's an eating adventure that you won't want to miss."

Be sure to try it while you can because Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza is only here for a limited time - available from October 15, 2012 to November 25, 2012.
