For those who think of pizza as little more than a cheese-delivery system, search no further: Today, April 3, Pizza Hut launches the new “Crazy Cheesy Crust” pizza. Rather like the “crown crust” pizza the chain offers in the Middle East—where an open pocket in the crust is filled with a cheeseburger patty—the American version will stuff the little crust pockets with cheese. For an additional $2, you can add even more cheese to the $12.99 pie.

Pizza Hut’s Executive Chef Wiley Bates III, a former chef at Starwood Hotels and Resorts, says the chain will evaluate how this pizza fares before it makes further fillings available for the crust. “What is [Crazy Cheesy Crust] 2.0 for us? That is to be determined,” he says. One possibility he’s considered: bacon.
