Pizza Hut's Newest Pizza Has Mozzarella Poppers Baked Into the Crust

This pizza crust is poppin' with mozzarella poppers!

There are some people who will argue the crust is the very best part of the pizza. Now, before you roll your eyes or come to battle with a clever rebuttal, you should be warned that these crust Stans may be onto something. Pizza Hut has recently given this kind of pizza-eater a reason to celebrate with its brand new pizza pie: Mozzarella Poppers Pizza.

Today, Pizza Hut announced that it launched its cheesiest pizza yet, the main attraction of which is the crust. Now, this isn't your standard stuffed crust pizza, which typically wedges a sliver of mozzarella in between the thicker pockets of crust. Instead, Pizza Hut's latest innovation stacks the extra fried cheese on top of the crust, in the form of little fried mozzarella bites.

The pizza, which will come in either standard pepperoni or plain ole' cheese, will have 16 crispy mozzarella-stuffed squares on top of the crust. With this pizza, you get the main meal and appetizer all in one box. You can either pluck the little poppers off of the crust or sink your teeth into it all at once.
