Pizza Hut is celebrating the NCAA March Madness tournament with the return of a limited-edition offering from the 1990s: mini basketballs.
Available for $7 for a limited time starting on March 14 via the Pizza Hut website and app, the mini basketballs feature a black and red pattern and text that reads, “No One OutPizzas the Hut.”
The offer comes on the heels of the revival of another fan-favorite Pizza Hut menu item: the Big New Yorker. The 16″ pizza, available now for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide, features six oversized, foldable slices with a crispy crust and flavors including sweet marinara sauce and Parmesan oregano seasoning, mimicking a New York-style pizzeria build.
For those who may be looking to practice their free throws at home, orders of the Big New Yorker pizza from participating locations will come with specialty March Madness packaging that turns into a basketball hoop and backboard for the mini basketballs.
Pizza Hut is also bringing back the “Pizza Hut Challenge” for the March Madness men’s tournament. Warner Bros. Discovery Sports and CBS Sports studio talent will go head-to-head in a bracket-style tournament played with the mini basketballs.
Additionally, Pizza Hut has teamed up with Culture Kings for an in-store activation at the streetwear destination’s flagship store located at the Caesars Palace Forum Shops in Las Vegas on March 18. During the one-day event, pizza and basketball lovers will enjoy a variety of activities ranging from basketball-themed games to pizza-themed photo moments. They’ll also have the chance to get their hands on the mini basketballs.
