We've experienced the joys of stuffed crust pizza, but Pizza Hut has taken oozing cheese to a level we're still trying to process (in a good way, of course).

"The Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza is an imagination of a classic grilled cheese and a traditional pizza,” David Timm, Pizza Hut's chief marketing officer, said in a press release. "The result is a delicious, flavorful pizza that packs the punch of a gooey, crunchy grilled cheese."
A one-topping, large Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza will run you $12.99, but it's a small price to pay for tried-and-true comfort. Grilled cheese and tomato soup have proven to be a match made in culinary heaven, so we're thinking this crust's interaction with tomato sauce is sure to bring all the cozy, familiar feels.
We know that some of you pizza purists may be thinking "this is gimmicky" or "what has the world come to?," but there's a time and a place for every type of food mash-up and the time for Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust is now.
