The newest Pizza Hut mash-up combines two of the most beloved foods of all—grilled cheese and pizza.

The Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza features extra gooey cheddar and mozzarella cheese stuffed in and baked onto the crust. To finish off the grilled cheese crust, it is topped with toasted breadcrumbs and melted butter for the ultimate grilled cheese experience. A large one-topping Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza was available beginning Monday for $12.99.

"The Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza is the perfect combination of a classic grilled cheese and a traditional pizza," says David Timm, chief marketing officer, Pizza Hut. "The result is a delicious, flavorful and indulgent pizza that packs the punch of a gooey, cheesy, crunchy grilled cheese."

Cheese is rapidly becoming one of America's favorite foods. Related, pizza is often ranked as the most popular food in America. To round out the equation, grilled cheese has been pegged as one of the most comforting foods ever imagined. Now, all of these "favorites" can be enjoyed as one.
