Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut might consider changing its name to Pizza Hot with the launch of its latest offering.

The restaurant chain is bringing the heat to the masses with its Spicy Lovers Pizza, the newest recipe to join the brand's already stacked lineup of fan-favorite pizzas.

Crafted with balanced and flavorful layers of zesty and spicy ingredients, the Spicy Lover's Pizza is not for the faint of heart. It features Pizza Hut's new spicy marinara sauce — that provides a touch of heat and with a hit of sweetness — plus sliced red chilis, and "Fiery Flakes" (made from a custom blend of herbs and crushed red peppers).

  • Spicy Double Pepperoni: The Pepperoni Lover's dream, layered with spicy marinara sauce, two types of pepperonis (classic and crispy cupped), sliced red chilis, and Fiery Flakes.

  • Spicy Hawaiian Chicken: A mix of spicy and sweet; spicy marinara sauce, chicken, pineapple, sliced red chilis, and Fiery Flakes.
