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.
The Ultimate Hershey’s Chocolate Chip Cookie is an oversized choc-chip biscuit sliced and packaged to resemble a pizza. Despite less-than-stellar reviews from us in the past, a supremely cocky Pizza Hut delivered a warm, gooey batch for us to review yesterday afternoon. Read on for our taste verdicts!
Pizza Hut has quietly pulled online advertising for its Mitey Stuffed Crust pizza following complaints from Vegemite owner Kraft. The offending advert depicted foreign backpackers retching in disgust at the taste of the new product. The "takeaway" lesson here is that you probably shouldn't publicly insult your business partner -- even if it's just a joke.
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.
Following in the slithering footsteps of the Hot Dog and Cheeseburger crusts, comes Pizza Hut's latest unnatural hybrid: the Doritos Crunchy Crust Pizza. As its name implies, it comes with actual Doritos corn chips stuffed inside the crust. The result is reminiscent of a nachos melted inside a pizza.
Hamster and Pineapple pizza, anyone? A Pizza Hut franchise in Victoria has been forced to apologise after offering customers "a free small animal" when ordering ten pizzas. The ill-advised promotion was run in conjunction with a neighboring pet shop before outraged animal rights groups saw the deal hastily withdrawn. As bad ideas go, this one is worse than the Cheeseburger Crust.
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?
