Around the World: Pizza Hut Adds Yeast Spread to Stuffed Crust Pizza in New Zealand

Pizza Hut New Zealand is adding a local favorite, Marmite yeast spread, to their Stuffed Crust pizza with the new, limited-time Chee-Zee Marmite Stuffed Crust Pizza. Alongside with the standard pipping of mozzarella cheese is a layer of Marmite. The Stuffed Crust is paired with their Cheese Extreme pizza which is a plain cheese pizza with three times the normal amount of mozzarella.

The Chee-Zee Marmite Stuffed Crust Pizza pizza is being promoted at a carryout price of $8 NZ (~$6.76 US) for a large.

Marmite is a polarizing salty yeast spread popular (or unpopular depending on who you ask) in the UK and New Zealand. A similar spread is popular in Australia and sold under the Vegemite name. It's often spread and eaten on toast and has a pungent odor. It's most often found in the US if you find a store with a British food aisle.
