There's more. Movie partnerships. The Edge Pizza. Beer delivery. Cheesy Bites. Pie Tops. Checkered table cloths.
In celebration of its birthday, Pizza Hut – long recognized as the pizza company that has shaped the tastes and traditions for many pizza fans worldwide – is introducing a new pizza that combines two of the brand's most iconic menu items into one great new innovation called Double Cheesy Crust Pan Pizza.
The new, limited-time pizza pays homage to Stuffed Crust and Original Pan by baking a ring of cheese just inside the unmistakably golden edge of Pizza Hut Pan crust. An additional layer of toasted parmesan is baked on the crust edge and the pizza is topped off with a blend of parmesan and oregano.
"In addition to winning over pizza fans with innovations like the Double Cheesy Crust Pan Pizza, Pizza Hut has also become part of the fabric of American pop culture," said Zipporah Allen, CMO, Pizza Hut. "Whether it's making an appearance in iconic movies or changing the way we order food by being the first pizza ordered online, Pizza Hut has proven time and time again that No One Out Pizzas the Hut."
