Pizza Hut is making a big fuss over stuffed crust with its Nothing But Stuffed Crust offering.

The new menu item is a pizza-less ring of cheese-stuffed dough, available January 5-7 only at participating locations in Dallas/Fort Worth and Los Angeles. The first 50 customers at each restaurant can try the Nothing But Stuffed Crust for free if they make a $10 purchase, the company said.

Pizza Hut described the Nothing But Stuffed Crust item as “a literal ring of golden-brown crust baked to perfection with cheesy goodness inside.”

Pizza Hut’s Original Stuffed Crust Pizza debuted in 1995. To celebrate it, the chain is also offering a large Original Stuffed Crust pie with up to three toppings for $11.99 at participating locations nationwide.

“The Original Stuffed Crust pizza was a game-changer 25 years ago, and while there have been many imitators, nothing beats Original Stuffed Crust from Pizza Hut,” said George Felix, Pizza Hut’s chief marketing officer, in a press release. “In fact, over the years, we’ve had fans ask us if they could order just the stuffed crust by itself because it’s that good.”

In another limited-time menu innovation, Pizza Hut last month rolled out a three-for-one value deal called the Triple Treat box, with two medium one-topping pizzas, an order of breadsticks and 10 Cinnabon Mini Rolls in a single three-tiered box.

Pizza Hut also celebrated the 40th anniversary of its Original Pan Pizza last year.

The Nothing But Stuffed Crust offering comes on the heels of Papa John’s debut of the Epic Stuffed Crust Pie in December. Papa John’s CEO Rob Lynch called the stuffed-crust pizza one of the chain’s “biggest initiatives” in years.
