• Pizza Hut serves up details on ''The Chicago Dish'

Though Pizza Hut introduced its new Chicago Dish Pizza on Sept. 24, the newest member of the menu didn't get its media coming-out party until Sept. 30.

Now the Dallas-based company is revealing a few facts and figures about the pizza it claims took 10 years to perfect.

According to spokesperson Julie Hildebrand, The Chicago Dish is a permanent menu item, not "an LTO ... a limited-time offer."

The parbaked crust is manufactured at contracted commercial bakeries and shipped to stores. The high-sided, thick crust is made with a touch of cornmeal for texture.

Pizza Hut's newest pie, The Chicago Dish Pizza.

The pizza is assembled in the following order: Along the bottom of the crust are layered slices of mozzarella, toppings (essentially a choice of any Pizza Hut topping) come next, followed by a layer of shredded cheese.

A chunky marinara sauce is heated in the conveyor oven separately from the pizza, spooned on top and followed by a sprinkling of grated Parmesan. If served in house, both the sauce and Parmesan are added tableside.

The finished creation weighs a hefty three pounds, costs $11.99 with three toppings, and it's available nationwide.
