Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Pizza Hut has announced it will be giving away 10,000 margherita pizzas between August 4 and August 6. According to the company, there's "no catch" - just free pizza. However, before you start salivating at the thought of a delicious cheesy lunch, there's something you need to know from the small print.

In the 1980s, Pizza Hut was much more than a home delivery chain. Its dine-in restaurants formed a staple Saturday night for many Australian families. Sadly, by the mid-90s, most of these pizzerias had shut down due to rising real estate costs and changing dining habits. If you miss the days of all-you-can-eat buffets and bottomless soft drinks, we have some stirring news - Pizza Hut is looking to relaunch sit-down restaurants Down Under. Hurrah!

This week, Pizza Hut welcomed two new members to its super-deformed "Stuffed Crust" family: the spice-fueled Chillidog and cheese-laden Cheesydog. As their names imply, both products come with a giant hula hoop-shaped hot dog jammed inside the crust. The results are horribly fascinating and strangely intriguing. Read on for the full Allure Media verdict.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with having an occasional fast food blow-out. Some would even argue that it's good for the soul. However, there are some menu items that are definitely best avoided; especially if you're trying to lose weight. With that in mind, here are the unhealthiest products from each of Australia's major fast food chains. (You may be surprised to learn that Subway "beat" McDonald's.)

The Four'N Twenty Stuffed Crust Pizza is the latest fast food mash-up to slither out of Pizza Hut's nefarious lab. As its name implies, each slice of pizza has a Four'N Twenty party pie nestled in its crust. This week, we invited our co-workers to sample this unholy union of foodstuffs. Here are their verdicts.

Yesterday, we brought you the vaguely terrifying news that Pizza Hut had released a Vegemite-flavoured pizza. The deceptively-titled "Mitey Stuffed Crust Pizza" takes a regular cheese-filled crust and infuses it with Australia's favourite breakfast spread. We've since tasted the product ourselves and found it to be surprisingly moreish -- here is the Lifehacker verdict.

After 56 years of trading in the US, Little Caesars is finally coming to Australia. (Better late than never, eh?) The famously monikered pizzeria is quite different to Domino's and Pizza Hut -- it specialises in Detroit-style "deep dish" pizzas and relies on drive-through instead of home delivery. Yesterday, we visited its first Aussie store to put its "Hot-N-Ready" menu to the test.

The Doritos Crunchy Crust Pizza does exactly what it says on the box: in place of a regular boring crust, you get a crunchy layer of original Doritos corn chips plus mozzarella cheese and a sprinkling of cheddar. (If you can imagine a pizza merged with nachos, you have a pretty good idea how it tastes.) Yesterday, Pizza Hut invited us to try out this new indulgent crust in our office. Opinions ranged from "delicious" to "stomach churning". Read on for the Allure Media verdict.

Pizza Index is a new measuring tool from stockbroking firm CMC Markets that attempts to predict shifts in the economy based on Australia's pizza buying habits. The idea is that consumers move away from expensive foods when times are tough in favour of the budget end of the market -- namely, cheap takeaway pizza. As the Index shows, the current trend for bottom-of-the-barrel $5 pizzas paints a grim picture for the economy. Or maybe we're just a bunch of tightarses?
