While some people love that classic hand tossed crust and others prefer a thin option, one thing has been missing from that slice, sweet heat. Although there are a plethora of pizza toppings and even styles available, one food trend is being adopted by the popular national pizza trend. Pizza Hut Hot Honey Pizza and Wings are here. Is your location one of the lucky cities to offer the new flavor?
Pizza Hut is always looking to innovate and give guests a slice of pizza trends. Even though some people might appreciate a nod to nostalgic options, new takes bring excitement. Large scale brands might not venture too extreme with adopting trends. Still, even that pepperoni slice can get a little twist from time to time.
With the Pizza Hut Hot Honey Pizza and Wings, the popular food brand introduces the concept to a wider audience. Although some people have learned to appreciate a drizzle on a margarita pizza, this option brings the spicy, salty, and sweet.
According to Pizza Hut, the hot honey drizzle is added on top of a dual pepperoni pizza. Each pizza includes cheese, marina sauce, classic pepperoni and the crispy cupped pepperoni. Since the honey is drizzled all over the pizza, not just the crust, the combination of the salty, savory cupped pepperoni and the hot honey accumulated in the space hits all the flavors. Some people might want to pluck those pepperonis off the pizza and enjoy them separately.
Although not stated by Pizza Hut, it might be nice for the brand to offer some extra packets of the hot honey sauce. While the pizza maker seems to offer an ample drizzle, some people might like to dip that leftover crust as a sweet, heat ending to the meal.
While the pizza offering will have many people talking, Pizza Hut is also offering hot honey wings. When the family wants a more robust dinner option, an order of wings can ensure that no one leaves the table hungry.
The Pizza Hut Hot Honey Pizza is available now, but it can only be purchased in Dallas and Cleveland. The suggested starting pizza price is $11.99 and a 6-count of wings starts at $5.99. It is unclear whether Pizza Hut will expand this offering nationwide.
