In time for National School Lunch Week, Oct. 14-18, Pizza Hut has introduced a new, 51-percent whole-wheat pizza as part of its school lunch program. The new option, created by the brand's Food Innovation Team and in-house nutritionist, offers K-12 students whole grains and reduced-fat cheese and pepperoni.

According to the company, the pizza's crust is 51-percent whole wheat, with 18 grams of whole grains per slice and 3 grams of fiber, as well as calcium, iron and vitamin A.

The light mozzarella cheese contains 50 percent less fat and 35 percent less sodium than Pizza Hut's traditional whole-milk mozzarella. Topping options include cheese; pepperoni that is 30 percent less fat and 55 percent less sodium than Pizza Hut's traditional pepperoni; all-natural sausage; and veggies such as white mushrooms, green peppers, red onions and tomatoes.

Schools can also get these four topping recipes on Pizza Hut's Hand-Tossed Style Crust or order additional menu items, such as WingStreet wings, a la carte from the full menu.
