Pizza Hut Believes It’s “Re-Inventing The Stuffed Crust Experience” By Using 3 Kinds Of Cheese

There’s only so much you can do with a pizza before it becomes something that doesn’t even resemble a pizza — there’s a fine line between novelty food and monstrosities like the cheeseburger crust creation.

Pizza Hut Raises Prices, Unveils New Strategy: Treat Cheese "Like An Extra Topping"

Pizza Hut Raises Prices, Unveils New Strategy: Treat Cheese "Like An Extra Topping"

Pizza Hut has declared that cheese is a topping, meaning that plain pizzas and pies with one topping will now cost the same.

Jennifer Little, a Pizza Hut spokeswoman, said the new strategy is to treat cheese “almost like an extra topping.” Little said the price change also could be justified because a typical cheese pizza has about 50 percent more cheese than a similar-size pie with one topping, such as pepperoni.

Papa John’s has no plans has no plans to treat cheese like a topping; the Pizza Hut rival hedged its cheese supply, guaranteeing steady prices through the summer. — CAREY GREENBERG-BERGER
