You probably haven't noticed , but buried beneath all the mysticism and Renaissance art appreciation, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles really enjoy pizza. And now, they've switched their attention from saving April to resurrecting Pizza Hut's Cheesy Bites Pizza. April will understand.

The Cheesy Bites Pizza, for the uninitiated, is a standard Hut pie with a wreath of cheese-filled dough poppers where the crust should be. It's made frequent limited-run reappearances over the years, and the latest one is starting today and lasts through August 8, when the new live-action TMNT hits theaters. No word yet on whether Pizza Hut's gone back to the Secret of the Ooze well and scored Vanilla Ice as a surprise endorser, but they do have icing on those Cinnamon Sticks, so it would make sense.
