Pizza Hut Teams Up With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Cowabunga dude! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles−those pizza-loving, crime-fighting turtles are back this summer with an all-new movie produced by Michael Bay.  To celebrate their return, Pizza Hut will be promoting TMNT all summer long with a partnership that includes the return of the Pizza Hut cheesy bites pizza, a secret online-only menu where you can order each of the turtle's favorite pies, and a social media promotion where you can show off your turtle swag (do you think you can still fit into those Donatello pajamas from 1992?) and get the chance to win gift cards and other prizes.

"There's no denying the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' love of pizza, said Carrie Walsh, Chief Marketing Officer of Pizza Hut. "Coupling the popularity of the Ninja Turtles to our pizza innovation, we're thrilled to be bringing back a fan favorite in Cheesy Bites Pizza that combines the great pizza taste with a little 'food fun' for fans to enjoy."

Cheesy Bite pizza is back at Pizza Hut starting July 7th , and you can also order your favorite turtle's pizza creation online starting then, choosing from Donatello's pie (chicken, mushroom, green pepper and tomatoes), Leonardo's pizza (onions, black olives, green pepper and mushrooms), Michelangelo's creation (pepperoni, ham, pineapple and jalapeño), or Raphael's favorite (pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon and beef).

Also, be sure to check out the return of the "Pizza Hut Pizza Thrower" with a life-sized version of the retro Pizza Hut toy that will be on display at TMNT events this summer.
