If you’re of the mind that the best part of pizza is the cheese, Pizza Hut just introduced a new menu item that will definitely validate those feelings. Thanks to FoodBeast, we found out that the pizza chain is now offering Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza. Beginning yesterday, it became available nationwide.

The name Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza seems to be a fitting description for what this new kind of pizza is. According to the Pizza Hut website, in place of regular crust or even run-of-the-mill stuffed crust, a large Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza features 16 pockets of ooey-gooey cheese. Each pocket is packed with a five-cheese blend, which includes mozzarella, provolone, fontina, asiago, and white cheddar. You can eat the round cheese pouches attached to your pizza slices as if they were regular crusts. Or, if you’re feeling adventure, you can pull the cheese balls off and stuff them in your face one by one as a side dish to your pizza.

As is true with most announcements that involve this much cheese, the internet is having a strong response. Mostly the reactions were positive, although we did see some complaints that despite the pockets being packed with five different types of cheese, they were still too small. Some people just always want more, especially when it comes to cheese, and we respect that.

In addition to introducing a new vehicle for more cheese, Pizza Hut also announced yesterday that it would be giving away what it's calling a 'Tis the Cheese'n holiday package, which according to a press release, comes with merch that's perfect for all the pizza lovers out there. Included in the package is a "Cheese'n" sweater and beanie, a pizza mug, pizza string lights, pizza blanket, pizza ornament, and more. Fans of pizza, especially the kind with extra cheese, can enter to win by tweeting @pizzahut.

Even if you don't get up winning those cheesy gift set, you can still try the Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza, and since we've already established that cheese is the ultimate gift, hopefully that will be enough.

But, regardless of whether you grew up eating your pizza out of a box from the store's freezer section or not, it's hard to deny that a frozen pie is both parts cheap and convenient. You can pick up one up just about anywhere at any time and fully stock your freezer full of the slices — for whenever those pizza cravings come a knocking. No long lines, delivery fees, or even waiting around for the doorbell to ring — just you, a pre-made pie, and your preheated oven. Now that really doesn't sound half bad. The only hitch? Frozen pizza doesn't always live up to its fresh counterpart.</p><p>Because it had been awhile since we'd tasted a sampling of the frozen product options ourselves, we held a blind taste test in order to select a top contender. We bought and baked up the pre-made pies from three popular grocery brands (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Target), throwing in a fourth frozen pie legend for good measure (DiGiorno). Join us ahead to find out if all freezer pizza is created equal — and which, if any, of the four boxed brands won over our fresh slice-loving taste testers.</p> We Tried These 4 Popular Frozen Pizza Brands — & Here's The Supreme Slice
