Back in 2012, Pizza Hut broke millions of hearts by releasing its hot dog stuffed crust pies in Canada, Australia, and the UK, while simultaneously snubbing the United States (the home of the hot dog). Well, the time's come to put on your fat pants, because it looks like the Hut is set to amend that glaring oversight later this month.
According to Kotaku's Mike Fahey, most of Pizza Hut's stores in the Atlanta area have received shipments of hot dogs and mustard sauce in anticipation of the new, wiener-based pie. What's more, a reader of TheImpulsiveBuy sent in a photo of a promotional flyer that seems to indicate a June 18th launch date.
Pizza Hut declined to comment on the legitimacy of these leaks, but barring the existence of a massive conspiracy by Big Pizza, it's safe to say we'll all be enjoying juicy hot dogs in our pizza crust in time for the 4th of July.
