Pizza Hut's hot dog stuffed crust debuts - we went there

Pizza Hut's new hot dog stuffed-crust pizza dropped nationwide Thursday.

An eight-slice large sells for about $11.99, and comes with a side of French's mustard for dipping.

The FOX 2 newsroom gave it a chance - did we say "hot dog!" or "hot mess?"

In the end, results were mixed - although to be fair, our Southfield Pizza Hut location forgot to include the mustard for our dipping pleasure.

Staffers tried the pretzel crust with short hot dog wedges embedded inside - sort of a pig in an Italian blanket, a short distance from the pizza sauce.

Each slice contains about three or four mini-dog "knuckles." 

The dogs were the highlight and went well with the salty crust. Besides being oddly weighted, the real fun was eating it backward, crust-first.

Among the brave newsroom culinary critics - not everyone loved it - but nobody hated it, either.

A news producer who wasn't as impressed by the pizza side, indulged instead in the slice's hot dog "business end" of things.

"The pizza was a '6' but the crust made it a '10,'" said producer Ken Beck, adding the lack of mustard was disappointing.

Another was unimpressed.

 "Not all great things should be combined," Rebecca Abramson said. "But if it was a kosher dog I might rescind that."
