An Italian hot dog is a type of hot dog popular in New Jersey, United States
A&W Hot Dogs and More used to sell an Italian dog which consisted of a polish sausage in a hot dog bun, topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
Commonly, the dogs are dressed with spicy mustard and ketchup. One popular variant in Belleville uses two long hot dogs, french fries (thick wedges), fried peppers, and onions, topped with tomato sauce and placed in a 12-inch-wide (300 mm) pizza bread roll. The roll, spelled “apizza” and pronounced “abeetz”, is cut along the side into a pocket.
