For a limited-time only, Detroit-Style Pizza is making a return to Pizza Hut menus nationwide.

First introduced earlier this year in January, Detroit-Style pizza was a fresh addition to Pizza Hut menus, with its distinct rectangular shape and crispy caramelized crust.

In this latest release, however, fans can now indulge in a ‘Create Your Own’ option that lets them customize their very own Detroit-Style pizza with up to five toppings. For those more interested in pre-made offerings, the Detroit-Style will come in three: Double Pepperoni, Meaty Deluxe, and Supremo.

This limited-time only window of Pizza Hut’s Detroit-Style pizza will be available at locations nationwide.

Pizza Hut Adds Carryout ‘Hut Lane’ Drive-Thru Feature

With the pandemic affecting quick-service and fast-food restaurants this past year, there have been many changes in how customers pick up their food at their local spots.

Pizza Hut, which boasted the first major pizza chain to offer delivery to your car, will now add yet another convenient feature for folks not looking to leave their vehicle. This time, customers won’t even have to park their vehicles.

The Hut Lane is essentially a drive-thru option that lets customers pick up the Pizza Hut app and PizzaHut.com orders upon arrival. All they’ll have to do is pull up to the dedicated window, pick up their order, and leave.

Currently, The Hut Lane is available at 1,500 Pizza Hut locations, with more in development. For customers who order their pizzas from locations without a Hut Lane, an employee will bring your pizza out to you once you park.

BEEF WELLINGTON and SPICY HOT POT: Pizza Hut Taiwan’s Latest Flavors Are WILD

Pizza Hut Taiwan has a drool-worthy collection of holiday season pies they’re slinging right now, both of which are based on popular dishes not just in Taiwan, but around the world.

One of these popular pies is the Beef Wellington Pizza, based on the celebratory British dish. Beef Wellington is extremely popular around the holiday season, when people tend to splash out on fancy cuts like filet mignon that are required for the meaty feast.

A traditional Beef Wellington meal would consist of beef wrapped in puff pastry with mushrooms, plus sides of mashed potatoes, vegetables, and a sauce like a red wine reduction.

Pizza Hut’s version holds true to all of those components, albeit with slight twists. The beef they use is slow cooked in red wine and balsamic vinegar to emulate that reduction, and squares of puff pastry are baked into each slice. Balls of mashed potato and corn are embedded into the crust and on the pizza itself, which comes with spinach, mushrooms, and red peppers.

While it’s not an actual Beef Wellington topped like a pizza (which would be really cool), it is a hearty and tasty tribute to the British classic. Now to see what Gordon Ramsay thinks about it.

Hot pot fans also have an interesting pizza to tuck into, as Pizza Hut Taiwan has collaborated with hot pot chain Tripod King to debut the Fire Spicy Hot Pot Pizza.

This pizza is inspired by the “Mala” style of hot pot, which features a spicy, numbing broth made with tingly Sichuan peppercorn. The pizza itself is brushed in a Sichuan pepper oil, and is made with hot pot spices. On top of the pizza is cheese and an array of meats you’d find in a hot pot, including chicken meatballs, brisket, tendon, shank, and honeycomb tripe.

Curious to see how this slice would fare if dipped into an actual pot of spicy, numbing broth. I’m actually drooling just imagining that flavor combination.

Pizza Hut Taiwan’s Beef Wellington Pizza is available for sale through January 4th, while the Spicy Hot Pot Pizza is being sold in limited quantities until stocks run out. Those of you in Taiwan, I’m incredibly jealous.

As far as holiday meals go, I actually look forward to Christmas Dinner more than I do Thanksgiving. It’s got many of the same staples but carries so much less weight and obligations.

Pizza Hut UK’s newest Christmas Pizza encapsulates that spirit.
The new pie features shredded rotisserie chicken, crispy bacon and sage & onion stuffing, all over a red wine gravy foundation.

Imagine eating this by the fireplace, wrapped in a pizza blanket, and watching Christmas films until you drift off to sleep.

Pure. Magic.

Giant Stuffed Cheez-Its Just Dropped At Pizza Hut Locations Nationwide

Fast food mashups with beloved packaged food brands have dominated the space in 2019, with items like the Cheetos Sandwich and deep fried OREOs having taken the industry by storm. The latest chain/CPG collab, between Pizza Hut and Cheez-Its, is sure to only intensify the furor around these hybrids.

Pizza Hut’s newest item is the Cheez-It Pizza, which can be best described as a cross between a giant Cheez-It cracker and a calzone. The actual dough around the outside is infused with Cheez-Its’ signature flavor, and was designed to have a crispier texture to better emulate a cracker. The Cheez-Its are stuffed with cheese and an optional helping of pepperoni, served with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

This fusion of cheesy crackers and pizza will be available starting September 17th at all locations nationwide. You can order a pack of 4 with marinara for $6.49. On September 24th, it will also be added to Pizza Hut’s $5 N’ Up menu at a 50-cent discount.
