A trio of new Pizza Hut pizzas really bring the heat.
Three new Spicy Lover's Pizzas – Spicy Double Pepperoni, Spicy Hawaiian Chicken, and Spicy Veggie – are available now for a limited time at participating Pizza Hut locations for delivery, curbside pickup and carryout.
Each of the pizzas is made with a spicy marinara sauce, sliced red chili peppers and "Fiery Flakes" of crushed red peppers and herbs.
The Spicy Double Pepperoni pizza is topped with traditional pepperoni, as well as "crispy cupped" pepperoni. The Spicy Hawaiian Chicken pizza features chicken and pineapple; the Spicy Veggie pizza comes with green bell peppers, red onions and mushrooms.
