Pizza Hut hopes that pizza lovers who believe bigger is better will like its new Big Italy Pizza, which measures nearly 2 feet long and is bigger than two medium-sized pizzas combined.
The limited-time Big Italy Pizza features Italian spices baked into Pizza Hut's signature Hand-Tossed Style crust. The oval-shaped pizza has 18 slices and is $12 for up to three toppings.
Concurrent with the Big Italy launch, Pizza Hut fans now have one place to go for all of the latest news.
