Pizza Hut launches a cookie pizza

Pizza Hut on Monday is rolling out a 8-inch chocolate chip cookie that will be sliced like a pizza -- and delivered like one, if you like.

The cookie, officially dubbed the "Ultimate Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookie" is part of a partnership with Hershey Co. It will be $4.99 with a pizza, or $5.99 on its own. It's available for dine-in, pick-up or delivery.

"Pizza Hut chefs are ecstatic," said Carrie Walsh, chief marketing officer, Pizza Hut. "Our fans are in for an amazing, and great-tasting, experience."

The pizza cookie is an addition to the current dessert offering, Hershey's Chocolate Dunkers, which are made with pizza dough and topped with a touch of white chocolate and Hershey's milk chocolate

To highlight the cookie's launch, Pizza Hut's 6,300 U.S. restaurants on July 16 will host a "bake sale" selling the cookies, with 10 percent of each cookie sale going to the World Food Programme, a humanitarian agency that fights hunger.
