The delicious comfort of digging into a freshly baked pizza… You could almost wrap your body in that warm crust if you weren’t concerned about getting sauce on your shoes. So Pizza Hut has come up with the next best thing: a 72-inch-diameter weighted pizza blanket offering plenty of warmth, no oven required.

Created in collaboration with the weighted blanket specialists at Gravity Blanket, Pizza Hut’s Original Pan Weighted Blanket is six feet of pepperoni pizza style in a mess-free circular blanket form. Sure, you can’t eat it, but once you slip under this massive 15-pound blanket with a premium micro-fleece duvet cover, you may never want to bother doing silly things like standing up to go get food ever again.

“There’s no better way to close out 2020 than eating a Pizza Hut Original Pan Pizza while wrapped in the warmth and comfort of the Original Pan Weighted Blanket,” George Felix, Pizza Hut’s chief marketing officer, said—explaining the obvious. “This partnership with Gravity Blanket was the perfect solution to bring one of our legendary pizzas to life while bringing our fans a little TLC at the same time.”

If there’s any downside to this wild creation, it’s that buying one of these blankets will set you back $150 (shipping thankfully included)—but even that has a silver-lining: Pizza Hut explains that $150 is actually a 25 percent discount off what customers would usually pay for a similar item from Gravity Blanket. Indeed, these blankets aren’t cheap: The brand’s standard Gravity Blanket sells for $195. So, yeah, is there anything pizza can’t do?

These limited-edition blankets are available now at OriginalPanBlanket.com (which redirects to the official Gravity Blanket website). Pizza Hut suggests that they “won’t last long.” But then again, does pizza ever last long? Maybe if you ordered a pizza that was 72-inches wide. But seriously, now you’re overthinking it.
