• Pizza Hut to slice fat with new toppings

DALLAS -- Pizza Hut reportedly will introduce reduced-fat toppings and cheese and offer prepackaged salads this fall.

According to a report in the Courier-Journal, while a single slice of Pizza Hut's current pepperoni pizza contains 13 grams of fat, a slice of the reduced-fat version will have 43 percent less fat.

The company would not tell the C-J where the test would take place, though Pizza Hut of Fort Wayne (PHFW), a 44-store franchisee in northern Indiana and Western Ohio has had success selling pies using a soy-based cheese made by Galaxy Nutritional Foods (see Pizza Hut franchisee using Galaxy soy cheese in 44 stores).

The Orlando, Fla.-based company manufactures Veggie Mozzarella, which PHFW has served on its Lite Bites menu for more than a year. It has half the fat of regular mozzarella, no saturated fat or cholesterol, is lactose free and contains soy protein.

When PHFW first tested the product in 2001, it claimed 64 percent of customers who tried it returned to get it again (see related story Pizza Hut franchisee tests veggie cheese).
