Pizza Hut Testing “Skinny Slice” Pies, Or “Thin Crust Pizza” As It’s Known Elsewhere

Remember when Pizza Hut invented the cookie cake in 2014? It’s now testing out a mysterious new pizza configuration called “Skinny Slice” pies, wherein each contains less dough and fewer toppings for the health conscious. Basically, it’s thin crust pizza, but don’t tell Pizza Hut that. [More]

Pizza Hut Australia Is Not Handing Out Free Hamsters With Purchase

Pizza Hut Australia Is Not Handing Out Free Hamsters With Purchase

Pets aren’t prizes. That’s why goldfish games have been disappearing from carnival midways, and why people around the world were horrified when they saw that a Pizza Hut restaurant in Australia was offering a free small pet with the purchase of ten pizzas. The in-store placard featured a photo of a guinea pig, and it was not an appetizer. Pizza Hut says this was all a huge misunderstanding. [More]

Cats Take Over Pizza Hut Japan, Serve Fur-Stuffed Crust And Cuteness

Do you enjoy Pizza Hut’s products, but wish they could be served up by someone with a surly, anti-customer attitude, no food service or management skills, and with a generous sprinkling of cat hair on everything? Perhaps you would enjoy the fantasy world in current Pizza Hut ads in Japan, where cats have been hired to run a Pizza Hut franchise because OH MY GOODNESS LOOK AT THE KITTY. [More]

Chain Storefronts With Slight Makeovers Continue To Not Fool Anybody

Last year, we lamented the long hiatus of one of our favorite sites, Not Fooling Anybody, which featured makeovers of former chain storefronts that were, as the name states, not fooling anybody. What we didn’t know was that the site has been revived, in the form of a community on Reddit. Let the yellow-painted Pizza Huts roll! [More]

Pizza Hut Is Losing Sales In U.S., Doing Awesome Everywhere Else

Have Americans finally had enough cheese-stuffed crusts? That could be. We just aren’t flocking to Pizza Hut restaurants like we used to in past decades. Instead, competing chains like Papa John’s and Little Caesar’s are munching on slices of what used to be the Hut’s business. [More]

Pizza Hut Introduces Double Stuffed-Crust Pizza Because Why Not

We love cheese here at Consumerist, but we’re not sure whether we would enjoy a new and exciting product available at Pizza Hut in the Dominican Republic: a pizza with two cheese-stuffed crusts; one in the middle surrounding a bowl of marinara to dip this pile of cheese and deliciousness in. The result almost resembles a giant grilled cheese sandwich with some toppings on it. [Brand Eating]

Pizza Hut Jumps On 1997 Bandwagon With A “New” Cookie Pizza

Baking a cookie into a bigger shape than one normally expects for such a dessert is so late ’90s — your birthday party had a “normal” cake instead of a huge chocolate chip cookie with frosting writing on it? Lame! — but that hasn’t stopped Pizza Hut from joining the party now. [More]

Does Your Local Pizza Hut Have Anchovies?

Does Your Local Pizza Hut Have Anchovies?

Reader Matthew knows what he likes, and he’s not ashamed. He likes anchovies. Plenty of other people like anchovies, too, but evidently not enough. They have now disappeared from the menu at his favorite local place, and the nearest Pizza Hut only has enough to last for just ten more pizzas. Ten more pizzas. [More]

Hulu To Finally Let Non-Paying Mobile Users Watch Shows (And Ads, Of Course)

For years, consumers have been able to watch free TV content on Hulu on their computer screens, but if they wanted to check out most of this freely available content on their phones or tablets, they generally had to ante up for a paid Hulu Plus subscription. Today, in addition to some other new features for Hulu, the service announced it will begin making free content readily available to mobile users. [More]

Pizza Hut Manager Helped Boyfriend Rob Her Own Store… 3 Times In 4 Months

Pizza Hut Manager Helped Boyfriend Rob Her Own Store… 3 Times In 4 Months

It’s bad enough when a fast food manager assists in the robbery of the very store she’s entrusted to manage. It’s even worse when the person robbing the business is that manager’s boyfriend. But helping that no-good boyfriend pull off three robberies in only a few months, well… to quote Jaime Lannister, “The things I do for love.” [More]

Pizza Hut New Zealand Redeems Itself With Crusts Stuffed With Chili Dogs

People all over the world were horrified but also intrigued to learn that in New Zealand, Pizza Hut offers a crust stuffed with cheese (good) and Marmite, a yeast-based paste (ew). Fortunately, the chain’s Kiwi outposts have redeemed themselves with a new offering: the Chilli Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza. Better yet: those hot dogs are actually cheese dogs. [More]

Pizza Hut Stuffs Crusts With Fish Eggs

Pizza Hut Stuffs Crusts With Fish Eggs

Pizza Hut is a global menace. They simply won’t stop stuffing terrifying and unusual things in their pizza crusts. While nothing will ever top the horror of the Marmite-stuffed crust, the new Flying Fish Roe Salmon Cream Cheese Pizza is even stranger to Americans: its crust is stuffed with salmon-flavored cream cheese dotted with flying fish roe. Yep, fish eggs. [More]

Pizza Hut New Zealand Introduces Marmite-Stuffed Crust Pizza

Pizza Hut is out to become the global leader in pizzas with toppings crammed into the crusts. We have a morbid fascination with this product line, and now The Hut has introduced something even scarier than bacon cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets embedded in pizza crusts. In New Zealand, they’ve shoved Marmite in there. [More]

Pizza Hut Closes Down After Video Shows District Manager Using The Kitchen Sink As A Urinal

Pizza Hut Closes Down After Video Shows District Manager Using The Kitchen Sink As A Urinal

Food and bathroom behavior just don’t mix — especially at a restaurant that’s serving paying customers. So it’s no wonder video footage of a Pizza Hut employee in West Virginia peeing into the kitchen sink — the same one used to wash utensils and supplies — has prompted health officials to shut down that location to investigate.

Former Pizza Hut And KFC Buildings Never Escape Their Roots

Former Pizza Hut And KFC Buildings Never Escape Their Roots

If this great nation has a massive supply of anything, it’s abandoned chain restaurant buildings. Fortunately, ingenious business owners find new uses for them, turning fast-food joints into ethnic restaurants and … well, pretty much anything with four walls into a payday loan place or a pawn shop.

Pizza Hut Makes 7-Cheese Flower-Shaped Pizza In Hong Kong

Pizza Hut Makes 7-Cheese Flower-Shaped Pizza In Hong Kong

Pizza Hut keeps pushing the envelope (or is it pushing the large flat cardboard box?) when it comes to crusts, introducing a 3-cheese crust here in the United States, and inflicting sunflower-shaped bacon cheeseburger-pizza hybrids on overseas markets. Yet no matter how much we make fun of them, The Hut continues to innovate. Like the seven-cheese stuffed-crust pizza now available in Hong Kong. [More]

Pizza Hut Manager Accused Of Serving Spitty Pizza To Cop Who Arrested Her For Drunk Driving

Some memories are best forgotten: A Pizza Hut manager, who was arrested for drunk-driving in 2013 after knowingly letting an intoxicated person drive her car, happened to recognize a customer at her restaurant — the officer who’d busted her — and allegedly retaliated with an extra topping of saliva on his order.
