    "Throughout the entire NFL season, our fans proved to be the real MVPs," says Marianne Radley, chief brand officer, Pizza Hut. "While we're at our busiest, we're at our best—and Super Bowl Sunday was no exception. To keep the momentum going, we're showing our gratitude to customers by offering up a special deal on the Pizza Hut pizza they know and love, right in time for National Pizza Day." 

    Just how passionate were customers about the restaurant's oven hot pie during Super Bowl LIII? See below for stats about the busiest pizza day of the year for Pizza Hut:
