Pizza Hut and Cheez-It are joining forces to combine two iconic foods—Pizza Hut pizza and the Cheez-It 100 percent real cheese snack—into one, first-of-its-kind creation: The Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza.
Now available on Pizza Hut menus nationwide, the limited-time Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza features four baked jumbo squares topped with that distinctly sharp, real cheese taste. Each crispy square is stuffed in Pizza Hut style with either cheese or pepperoni and cheese, served up with a side of marinara dipping sauce.
“We pride ourselves on being the go-to for unexpected pizza innovations, and I can’t think of a more badass partner than Cheez-It to bring our next original menu item to life,” says Marianne Radley, chief brand officer, Pizza Hut. “Not to mention, as fellow NCAA partners, this collab is the perfect way to kick off football season, combining America’s go-to gameday cravings into one next-level snack.”
This partnership was born from more than just a fun idea. Not only are customers craving these kinds of mashups between beloved food brands more and more, Cheez-It is a popular snack among one of Pizza Hut’s largest fan bases—college students. Armed with that insight, the Pizza Hut culinary dream team worked with Cheez-It to create a product that ties the best of both pizza and Cheez-It worlds into one new innovation.
“Kellogg’s iconic Cheez-It brand brings a whole new dining experience to Pizza Hut lovers and will not disappoint,” says Wendy Davidson, president, Kellogg’s U.S. Specialty Channels. “The Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza is an example of two great companies leveraging their strengths to delight guests with a new experience on a classic favorite.”
Starting Tuesday, the Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza is available exclusively at Pizza Hut at the regular menu price of $6.49. However, cheese lovers will have even more reason to celebrate on September 24 when it’s added to Pizza Hut’s $5 N’ Up Lineup for just $6 when you buy two or more $5 N’ Up Lineup menu items. Try it now for delivery, carryout, or dine-in at Pizza Hut locations nationwide.
