(Relaxnews) – After jealously watching their Canadian, British and South Korean counterparts tuck into a hybrid hot dog pizza creation before them, Americans are finally getting their own version from Pizza Hut this summer.

This week the chain put the rumors to rest and confirmed in a tweet that the Hot Dog Bites Pizza will be hitting the US this month.

Unlike the iterations abroad which roped one single long hot dog along the border, the Twitter photo shows that the American version will be studded with about two dozen small, bite-sized pigs in a blanket along the outside crust.

The pizza will also come with a side of mustard.

It’s the latest move in the fast food war for Millennial dominance.

To catch the coveted market, fast food chains have been tripping over themselves coming up with new extreme, monster novelty items.

Rival Domino’s Pizza last year debuted a crustless pizza, topping breaded boneless chicken pieces with familiar pizza toppings like sauce, cheese and pepperoni.

Meanwhile to capitalize on the popularity of Sriracha hot sauce, TacoBELL and Subway have added the spicy condiment to their menus.

And to cater to tech-savvy and tech-dependent Millennials, chains like Starbucks, Burger King, McDonald’s, TacoBELL and KFC have either already launched or signaled plans to start mobile-enabled delivery services.

Pizza Hut’s Hot Dog Bites Pizza will be available June 18.
