Pizza Hut Bakes New Detroit-Style Pizza

Calling it their "biggest launch of the year," Pizza Hut introduces their new Detroit-Style pizza.

Citing the "growing popularity of this pizza style across the country and requests from customers," Pizza Hut came up with over 500 versions of the pizza and put in over a year of work on it. The chain's Detroit-Style pizza comes in a rectangular shape with cheese to the edges and is finished with a new, vine-ripened tomato sauce on top. The vine-ripened tomato sauce is only available on the Detroit-Style pizza.

As far as toppings go, Pizza Hut's Detroit-Style pizza offers four new topping combinations:

- Double Pepperoni - Topped with 48 slices of Crispy Cupped Pepperoni and 32 slices of regular pepperoni.

- Double Cheesy - Topped with two kinds of cheese--pizza cheese and aged Parmesan.

- Meaty Deluxe - Toped with bacon, Italian sausage and Crispy Cupped Pepperoni.

- Supremo - Topped with Italian sausage, red onions, and green bell peppers.

You can also customize the Detroit-Style pizza but only with a maximum of three toppings (as it won't bake properly otherwise).

You can find the new pizza style at Pizza Hut locations nationwide with prices starting at $10.99 (it's $11.99 here in Los Angeles for the Double Pepperoni and Double Cheesy and $13.99 for the Meaty Deluxe and Supremo).

With the new pizza launch, Pizza Hut becomes the second of the Big Four pizza chains to offer Detroit-style pizza. Little Caesars, which is based in Detroit, first added Detroit-style pizza to their menu (as the Deep Deep Dish Pizza) in 2013.
