Pizza Hut Resurrects 1980s Classic
In the 1980s, Pizza Hut sold a Taco Pizza with lettuce, tomatoes, ground beef, and cheddar cheese.
The Taco Pizza was featured widely in 1980s Pizza Hut ads, but was subsequently pushed out by competing products. Die-hard fans still remember it and urge Yum! Brands to bring it back.
"Bring Back the Taco Pizza" is a popular Facebook (META) group. Pizza Hut offered a limited-time Fiesta Pizza in 2004.
Pizza Hut is debuting the Italian Taco, a taco-shaped pizza filled with marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and toppings.
Pizza Hut will advertise Italian Taco on September 14. As it's just a folded-over pizza slice, it's a marketing gimmick to boost sales.
Pizza Hut asks individuals who test it at Pizza Hut locations and with other pizza to post photos with the #nooneoutpizzasthehut hashtag.
Pizza Hut stated last week it will bring back its rectangular Detroit-style pizza for football season.
Pizza Hut picked tacos for its current marketing drive since Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza has been all over the news.
Salsa sauce, ground beef, and shredded cheese on a taco shell was discontinued in 2020 when the pandemic shuttered many businesses and made it harder to distribute extra-saucy goods.
Taco Bell returned and took back the Mexican Pizza over the following two years because demand was so strong that many stores ran out of ingredients.
Many social media users are suspicious about Taco Bell's assurances that the Mexican Pizza is back "for real" this time.
The chicken-and-two-pickles sandwich attracted superstars like Serena Williams and Justin Bieber and prompted round-the-block lineups.
