Pizza Hut has seen stuffed crust before, but in its latest form, the brand will be using a blend of white cheddar, mozzarella, and provolone cheese hand-rolled into the crust. The new 3-Cheese Stuffed Crust pizza variety will be at a regular menu price of $12 for a large one-topping.
The new pizza will see a nationwide release on October 20th, but the following three stores from around the country are the only locations that have it available:
- 3094a Story Road, San Jose, Calif.
- 3052 Lancaster Drive NE, Salem, Ore.
- 9200 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring, Md.
