After a three-year innovation process, Pizza Hut unveiled the most substantial changes to its iconic menu staple in nearly four decades. The brand rolled out a revamped Original Pan Pizza systemwide on Tuesday, starting with a large, two-topping $7.99 deal for online orders.
The updated product is baked in a newly engineered pan topped with a new blend of cheese and sauce. The finished product is the result of a lengthy innovation journey Pizza Hut embarked on, focused on combining art, science, and culinary expertise to bring the taste of the Original Pan Pizza to the next level.
“Pizza Hut has a rich history of things we’re known for, and creator of the Original Pan Pizza is certainly at the top of the list,” says Marianne Radley, chief brand officer, Pizza Hut. “Reinventing our most iconic Pizza Hut menu item is just another way we’re showing our customers that as a company we’re about the pizza first and will never become complacent when it comes to taste.”
As of Tuesday, the new-and-improved Original Pan Pizza has also been added to the Everyday Low-Price Deal menu for a limited time.
“We know that taste is king for our customers, so we’re excited to roll out this new, state-of-the-art pan technology, combined with our perfected blend of cheese and sauce ratio,” adds Penny Shaheen, Senior Director, Culinary Innovation and Strategy, Pizza Hut. “We’ve put a lot of energy and love into refining this beloved pizza and are eager for customers to taste the unbelievable difference first-hand.”
