Pies popped up all over the place over the last few days, from the order Ellen DeGeneres placed for the guests at the Oscars on Sunday to a snazzy new concept table in the works at Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut has revamped their dough recipe, encouraging their employees to embrace the imperfect—and on the perfection flipside, they gift one highly detailed pie to Nate Robinson.
Pizza Hut begins offering their product by the slice, in an effort to stay competitive.
Pizza Hut locations in the UK have a new menu item: a pizza with mini beef patties topped with cheese that are embedded right into the crust.
Alright, I'm ready to pop another question this week—but first, time to go over the results from last weeks poll!
I don't know if it's due to flagging sales or if it's just a way to get people talking about their restaurants again, but Pizza Hut Canada seems to be fully committed to the gimmick pizza game. They only recently introduced the Crown Pizza, which featured cheese and meatballs baked into the crust; clearly someone at Pizza Hut HQ realized that this wasn't quite ridiculous enough. They can do better. It was with that in mind, I'm sure, that Pizza Hut released their latest wave of gimmick pizzas, including Creamy Butter Chicken, Asian BBQ, and most ridiculously, Cheesy Beef Poutine. Yes, poutine on a pizza. I am inexplicably drawn to terrible novelty items from fast food chains (which almost never ends well for me), so I obviously had to try this.
If the promises of pristine wilderness and endless outdoor fun haven't lured you to the Great White North just yet, the new additions to Pizza Hut Canada's menu surely will. The geniuses who brought you the Crown Crust Pizza are at it again, and this time they've dreamed up new exploitations of the slice that will stagger even the most loyal Pizza Hut connoisseur.
Gamers, rejoice! Or...er...maybe don't.
When it rains, it pours. Pizza, that is.
Remember the '90s? Or do you just think you do? Case in point: this screenshot of Pizza Hut's website, circa 1995. It's blurry 'cause it's all old 'n' stuff.
Last week, we told you that Pizza Hut had debuted a new, limited release pie. The Crazy Cheesy Crust ($12.99 with 1 topping) features 16 detachable "pockets," resembling bite-size bread bowls, brimming with a gooey five-cheese blend. It is also crazy not what I expected.
Remember how jealous you were when Pizza Hut Middle East launched the Cheeseburger Crown Crust? Or when a photo from China, of the Hot dog-encrusted shrimp tempura pizza, began to circulate earlier this year? Well, apparently America just got one step closer to crazy pizza land, with Pizza Hut's latest stuffed crust invention.
March Madness may not be quite as good for business as super bowl season, but pizza chains around the country are definitely milking it for all it's worth. So if you're watching the game—or, in my case, resentfully watching your boyfriend watch the game—now's the prime time to sweeten the deal with a big ol' cheesy pizza pie. Here's how to get the maximum bang for your buck.
Are you a commander of greatness? With strong managerial skills? And a smartphone? That you know how to use? With Twitter on it? That you tweet with? Then this may just be your lucky day! Because Pizza Hut is looking to hire a Manager of Greatness.
Pizza Hut's new Big Pizza Sliders aren't going to change the way you eat pizza forever—at least, not until they throw a few more topping on those things...
Pizza Hut has been blowing up the internet this week. The latest development? This utterly fascinating shot of Pizza Hut China's "hotdog encrusted shrimp tempura pizza with mayonnaise," courtesy of Globe and Mail photojournalist John Lehmann. Because someone, somewhere-most-likely-in-China, actually came up with this. And now, people can eat it. Woah.
I'm sure you'll be shocked to learn that pizza tends to do pretty well on Super Bowl Sunday. And nobody capitalizes on the patronage of pizza-crazed football fans like Pizza Hut. HuffPo reports that the chain expects sales of roughly 2 million pies this coming Sunday. And sure enough, the hut's been taking orders for the big game since earlier this week, replete with a relaunch of their limited edition Big Dinner Box (featured above, in all its carbalicious glory).
This recipe requires no kneading, no stretching, pretty much no skill whatsoever to create a crisp-crusted, airy, chewy pan pizza. Top as desired.
