Pizza Hut has long been one of the favorite places to go for anyone who enjoys a nice bit of Italian dining. Often designed with a very particular and commonly refreshed menu, many enjoy Pizza Hut as it avoids offering the same old stuff for too long.
There is always something new to try out – something fresh to eat and enjoy. If you are looking for a good example of that, then you should take a look at their new ‘incogmeato’ sausage dish.
Working with Kellogg’s MorningStar Farm group, they will create a new Italian-themed “sausage” dish that will be known as “incogmeato”. The name obviously drew a few laughs upon its announcement, but it’s already receiving some rave reviews. It was put on sale with the Garden Specialty Pizza option and was sold in a singular store in Phoenix, Arizona.
This is a very interesting option. Given the importance of the salad bar in Pizza Huts, this move to a more meat-free menu will certainly encourage people to try out their dishes again. If you have stopped eating meat, or you never did, then you will be happy to know that Pizza Hut has all the options that you need – including a sausage that, well, isn’t a sausage!
Pizza Hut: going green
Of course, the fast-food chain has always been known as being an innovator and as people who don’t mind doing things differently. That’s why the introduction of their new ‘eco-friendly’ round boxes is sure to win them even more applause from the environmental community.
This new box is in partnership with pizza delivery firm Zume, who wants to make the food industry a safer, more environmentally friendly place to eat. The box, which is fully compostable, has become a big part of the more green-minded direction Pizza Hut has started to move in across the last few years.
In a statement about their new pizza box, Pizza Hut Chief Customer and Operations Officer Nicolas Burquier said: “This revolutionary round box—the result of a two-year journey—is the most innovative packaging we’ve rolled out to date,
“The round box was engineered to make our products taste even better—by delivering hotter, crispier pizzas. This box is a win, win—it will improve the pizza-eating experience for our customers and simplify the operating experience for our team members.”
While calling a pizza box “revolutionary” might draw some smiles, it’s another sign that Pizza Hut doesn’t just follow the crowd.
Having innovated on pizzas for a long time now, their reputation for having their finger on the pulse for social causes has not gone unnoticed. It’s for that reason that we recommend that if you want to enjoy a meat-free pizza in a guilt-free box, you should take a look at the new Pizza Hut menu.
