The Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza features four baked jumbo squares topped with cheese and baked. Each square is stuffed with either cheese or pepperoni and cheese and served 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,” 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.
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.
