It’s been 10 years since Pizza Hut last gave us a taste of its glorious P’ZONE Calzone. But thanks to March Madness, the epic creation is making a comeback.
While the calzone was last on the menu in 2009, it actually debuted in 2002 — a whopping 17 years ago. If you remember it from way back then, you already know what the P’ZONE is all about. If not, all you need to know to start craving it is that it’s made up of pizza toppings and melted cheese, baked calzone-style inside a toasted parmesan pizza crust and served with marinara for dipping.
Pizza Hut says it brought back the P’ZONE because of popular demand, sharing Tweets on its website in which users asked for it to return to the menu. The company listened. Not only is it already available again nationwide, but you can get it in three flavors: pepperoni, meaty or supremo. The P’ZONE is just $5 each if you buy two for $10, or $5.99 to $6.99 separately.
The $5 Line-up, as Pizza Hut calls its two items for $10 menu, also includes other favorites like a medium one-topping pizza, an eight-piece order of wings, a chocolate chip cookie pizza and more.
Thanks to its designation as “the official pizza of NCAA March Madness,” you’ll also find Pizza Hut offering some other deals and special items, like a large two-topping pizza for $7.99 and the Ultimate Cheesy Crust Pizza. Another limited-time-only item returning to the menu after several years, the Ultimate actually features a crust stuffed with cheese — and may be available now in your area.
“March Madness is one of the most captivating sports moments of the year,” Chief Brand Officer Marianne Radley said in a press release. “We are excited to bring back the P’ZONE® as part of our $5 Line-up during a time when family and friends will be gathering in anticipation and excitement. Even if your team doesn’t advance in the tournament, the comeback of the P’ZONE® is something we know all fans can rally around.”
