Dubbed its biggest launch of the year, Pizza Hut has rolled out a new pizza — but it’s not round.
The all-new Detroit-Style Pizza, available nationwide for a limited time, is rectangular with “cheese all the way to the edges to create that crispy, thick, caramelized crust,” the company said.
Pizza Hut said in a news release that it spent over a year developing the pizza and tried more than 500 iterations. Several were tested in the Midwest and the pizza also has a new vine-ripened tomato sauce that’s only available on Detroit-Style.
There are four kinds of Detroit-Style pizza and prices start at $10.99 but vary by location. It’s available nationwide for contactless delivery, carryout and curbside pickup.
The new pizza comes ahead of two big pizza days: National Pizza Day, held annually on Feb. 9 and Super Bowl Sunday.
