Pizza Hut aims to bank on the much-anticipated return of Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza with the launch of its new Italian Taco.
The new Italian Taco features a hand-tossed taco shell stuffed with classic marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and whatever fillings you like, from pepperoni to ham to jalapeños, AKA a slice of pizza folded like a taco.
So basically it’s just a slice of pizza paired with your choice of toppings and folded up like an authentic Mexican taco.
Pizza Hut is inviting fans to fold their slice of pizza, take a photo, and share it on social media using the hashtag #nooneoutpizzasthehut. According to the pizza chain, if anyone tries to Out Pizza the Hut, then they’ll just gotta Out Taco you.
For those unaware, back in the 1980s Pizza Hut introduced a similar menu item called the Taco Pizza, which featured the brand’s signature crust topped with shredded cheddar cheese, ground beef, tomatoes, lettuce, and tomatoes.
The Italian Taco is available year-round as a permanent menu item at all Pizza Huts locations across the country.
