Pizza Hut is channeling their inner Southerner for the next new menu item. The pizza chain will now be offering three Texas-style BBQ pizza, endorsed by country star Blake Shelton. The new pizzas, which will be available at all Pizza Hut locations starting today, include Blake's Smokehouse BBQ, featuring hardwood smoked bacon, and sweet, smoked ham; Hawaiian BBQ with smoked ham, pineapple and green peppers; and Honey BBQ Chicken topped with chicken, bacon and onions.
"Growing up in Ada, Oklahoma, Pizza Hut was a big deal in my community," said Blake Shelton. "As a fan of BBQ and pizza, it has been a blast to partner with Pizza Hut to bring two of my favorite foods together."
All three pies will be available as a summer menu item for $11 each. Plus, if you take a “shelfie” (That’as Shelton selfie to the uninitiated) with the Blake Shelton cut-out at select Pizza Hut locations, you could win free pizza or other prizes.
