Pizza Hut, what took you so long? As America's love affair with bacon rages on, it's about time you stuffed your crust full of that glorious meat candy.

There have been plenty of other ingredients stuffed into pizza crust in the past, but none has ever elicited such a strong reaction from me. As far as I'm concerned, bacon is not a trend. It is here to stay and I will never quit it. That's why I am not ashamed to say that upon seeing Pizza Hut's latest creation, my eyes bugged out cartoon character-style. C'mon people, it's a pizza in all its usual glory, but the crust is stuffed with bacon and cheese. Bacon. In your pizza crust. Mmmm.

This bacon-laden pizza is only being offered for a limited time, so get it while you can. A large one-topping pie will set you back $12. A small price to pay if you ask me.
