Pizza Hut, known for pioneering iconic pizzas like the Original Stuffed Crust® and Original Pan® pizza, is bringing the heat to the masses with one of its biggest bets of the year: Spicy Lover’s Pizza. The new Spicy Lover’s Pizza joins Meat Lover’s®, Pepperoni Lover’s® and Veggie Lover’s® to round out the fan-favorite Lover’s® line of specialty recipes.
The intentionally crafted Spicy Lover’s Pizza, with its perfectly balanced and flavorful layers of spicy ingredients, is Pizza Hut’s take on one of the hottest food trends out there – an increased hankering for heat. This love of spice – coupled with a spicy void in the pizza space – inspired Pizza Hut to create the game-changing Spicy Lover’s Pizza.
Spicy Lover’s comes in three bold & balanced recipes, each purposely tailored for consumers with a proclivity for adventurous flavors:
- Spicy Double Pepperoni: The Pepperoni Lover’s dream; layered with spicy marinara sauce, two types of pepperonis – classic and crispy cupped – sliced red chilis and Fiery Flakes
- Spicy Hawaiian Chicken: A delightful mix of spicy and sweet; spicy marinara sauce, chicken, pineapple, sliced red chilis and Fiery Flakes
- Spicy Veggie: A colorfully vibrant sight to behold (and eat); spicy marinara sauce, green bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms, sliced red chilis and Fiery Flakes
“Pizza Hut has been making iconic pizzas for generations, and that requires adapting for each new wave of pizza lovers,” said Georgeanne Erickson, chief brand officer, Pizza Hut. “As consumer tastes continue getting more adventurous, the launch of Spicy Lover’s Pizza allows Pizza Hut to satisfy the growing craving for well-balanced, spicy flavor. No other national pizza QSR is offering spicy pizza in the space, and we’re excited to bring this thoughtfully crafted spicy pizza to pizza lovers across the country!”
