Giant Stuffed Cheez-Its Just Dropped At Pizza Hut Locations Nationwide

Fast food mashups with beloved packaged food brands have dominated the space in 2019, with items like the Cheetos Sandwich and deep fried OREOs having taken the industry by storm. The latest chain/CPG collab, between Pizza Hut and Cheez-Its, is sure to only intensify the furor around these hybrids.

Pizza Hut’s newest item is the Cheez-It Pizza, which can be best described as a cross between a giant Cheez-It cracker and a calzone. The actual dough around the outside is infused with Cheez-Its’ signature flavor, and was designed to have a crispier texture to better emulate a cracker. The Cheez-Its are stuffed with cheese and an optional helping of pepperoni, served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

This fusion of cheesy crackers and pizza will be available starting September 17th at all locations nationwide. You can order a pack of 4 with marinara for $6.49. On September 24th, it will also be added to Pizza Hut’s $5 N’ Up menu at a 50-cent discount.

Cheez-Its Crusted Grilled Cheese Is The Cure To Hot-Cheetos Crusted Food

Okay, internet, we’ve been crusting way too many things in the past few months with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It’s time for a change of pace because it’s no longer original to do that.

We’ve got a fuego alternative for you, as somebody’s finally utilizing a different type of cheesy crunch to top their food with: Cheez-Its.

The Empamamas Truck in Tampa Bay, Florida, has a dope deep-fried grilled cheese with cheddar and provolone that brings in the popular cheesy cracker as the breading for this sandwich. It’s literally cheese on cheese inside of more cheese, and there’s nothing more intense on the grilled cheese radar than something that’s got all that.

What Empamamas is really doing, though, is saying that it’s okay not to encrust your trendy epic meals with Hot Cheetos. You don’t need that extra bit of fire cause Cheez-Its are already fire enough.

If you’re with them on that, swing on by and grab one of these cheese sensations. Your tastebuds will be thanking you.

Uh oh. It was only a matter of time before mary jane wed the ultimate munchie snack — Cheez-Its. Dubbed “Weez-Its,” the stoner-friendly edibles hail from 7Deadly, the same folks who brought you weed vodka.

The recipe calls for the neon orange squares to get slathered in cannabis oil and toasted in the oven for 30 minutes. Depending on an individual’s tolerance, 5 crackers will bring on a light buzz, with the high intensifying with each additional Weez-It.

We recommend storing these cannabis-infused Cheez-Its in a distinct container marked “CAUTION”. Better yet, make sure you have unadulterated box of Cheez-Its on deck when snacking on Weez-Its. We got you.

This Gorgeous Wedding Cake is Made Out of Cheez-Its

What do you get when you put a Top Chef winner and craft beer consultant together? Peanut butter-covered Cheez-Its and bacon buttercream, apparently.

Just this past weekend, Top Chef season 4 champ Stephanie Izard married craft beer consultant Gary Valentine in a lovely culinary affair probably best described as fittingly #foodie.

According to People, the reception menu was stocked with sumptuous dishes like red wine braised short ribs, roasted black cod, rosemary potato gratin, grilled broccoli with bacon vinaigrette, roasted golden beets with Manchego, and balsamic vinegar pearls. The cake was still pretty cool though.

Created by Mathew Rice of Chicago’s Girl & the Goat, the multi-tiered masterpiece included one layer made of chocolate cake filled with chocolate and peanut butter-covered Cheez-Its, and another made of strawberry Nesquick and chocolate marble, covered with bacon buttercream.

Mr. and Mrs. Valentine, our inner children salute you.
