Pizza Hut has added bacon to its line of stuffed-crust pizzas with the new Bacon Cheese Stuffed Crust pizza. Yes, they’ve added bacon to a blend of white cheddar, mozzarella and provolone and stuffed their pizza crust with it. And to help them promote the new pizza, which launched Thursday, they’ve enlisted the help of “The Voice” star and country music artist Blake Shelton.

“If there was a way to combine awesome with greatness this is what it is,” Shelton said.

A one-topping Bacon Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza is now available for $11.99.

We asked Shelton a series of very important questions about pizza, what he likes to drink and what food he’d like to throw in Adam Levine’s face if he had the chance.

Favorite pizza toppings?


Mushrooms and black olives.

What do you eat when it’s 2 a.m. and you need a snack?

Chips, like corn chips. Doritos.

Favorite beer?

Bud Light.

Hamburger or grilled cheese?


If you were to do your famous finger point at a food item what would it be?

This new Bacon Cheese Stuffed Crust pizza. [We had a feeling he’d say that.]

Craziest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Crow. A friend and myself actually cooked some crow so we could actually say we’ve eaten crow. Don’t ever do that.

Yes, as a matter of fact. Yes.

Favorite cocktail?

Right now I’m liking Sierra Mist and vodka.

Hot pizza.

First three words that come to mind when you think of bacon?

Blisters, bits, grease.
