Hot Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza
It’s probably not a bad thing that this pizza has vanished. This Pizza Hut monstrosity was originally available in other countries like Canada and South Korea. But, really, it was only a matter of time before it came stateside in 2015. Is there anything more American than combining pizza and hot dogs into one meal?
Triple Decker Pizza
This monstrosity was kind of like the Big Mac of pizza. There were the crust and all of the standard pizza toppings—which sat on top of a second crust, complete with a cheese layer in between. We’ll admit, it’s better for everyone’s health that this pizza is no longer on the Pizza Hut menu.
Once upon a time, Pizza Hut was a place where you could sit down and order from a server, not just get a takeout pizza to-go. There was even a build-your-own salad bar! But salad bars and buffets aren’t coming back anytime soon, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
Hershey’s Chocolate Dunkers
In addition to the salad bar, sit-down Pizza Hut locations had breadsticks with marinara dipping sauce. And at one point, there was also a dessert version: Hershey’s Chocolate Dunkers, with a chocolate dipping sauce. It’s a bit random for Pizza Hut, but they were a sweet way to end the meal.
Part lasagna, part deep-dish pie, the Priazzo was a Pizza Hut monstrosity that never really took off. Pizza just isn’t meant to be eaten with a knife and fork!
These fried balls were a cross between jalapeño poppers and tater tots. Whatever they were, they were pretty delicious, especially if you dipped them in ranch dressing.
