For carnivores not wanting to follow Beyonce’s vegan diet, good news: Pizza Hut will be combining pigs in a blanket and pizza.

And it’s completely serious.

Pizza Hut confirmed that starting June 18, American chains will offer a large, one-topping pizza with 28 hot dog bites baked into the crust for $11.99. It will be served with a side of French’s mustard, according to Business Insider.

Versions of this bizarre menu item have been sold in the U.K. and Canada, and commercials have also aired in Australia and South Korea, Business Insider reported.

This isn’t the first time Pizza Hut has gained buzz for an unusual innovation: Earlier this week the chain announced that in Hong Kong, it will deliver some pizzas in boxes that can convert into movie projectors. Singapore’s Pizza Huts offered the “Double Sensation” pizza, which was a pizza inside of a pizza. And the chain in the Middle East offered one pizza where the crust was stuffed with cheeseburgers and another was stuffed with chicken nuggets.

As you can imagine, people went crazy on Twitter:
