We’ll pause to let it sink in. Pizza Hut and Cheez-It have done the unthinkable, joining forces to combine arguably two of the most iconic foods – Pizza Hut pizza and the Cheez-It 100% real cheese snack – into one mouthwatering, 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 you know and love from Cheez-It baked to toasty perfection. Each crispy square is stuffed in true Pizza Hut style with either cheese or pepperoni and cheese, served up with a side of marinara dipping sauce to create the ultimate, craveable mash-up that America’s been waiting for.
“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,” said 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 that’s delivering exactly what customers want.
“Kellogg’s iconic Cheez-It brand brings a whole new dining experience to Pizza Hut lovers and will not disappoint,” said 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 today, 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 Sept. 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.
