"We test marketed the Hot Dog stuffed Crust here in the US, but despite what is being reported, Americans don't like pizza and hot dogs." said Pizza Hut owner, Saul Sage. "This didn't catch us by surprise, though. Our corporate kitchens have been working overnight creating the next big thing in pizza!"
We can reveal today that Pizza Hut America has an equally mouth-watering pizza up it's proverbial sleave. Pizza Hut's BBQ Rib Stuffed Crust Pizza!
Pizza Hut worked in conjunction with Georgian BBQ Chain, "Porky the Hut" and developed a technique of baking slow-cooked ribs, dripping with BBQ Sause - right inside the crust of it's new specialty pizza. "That's not all," says Pizza Hut Head-Chef, Lyle Gunter, "We've made this a perfect southern BBQ meal - all in one. Our BBQ Rib Stuffed Crust Pizza is covered in juicy pulled pork and crisp dill pickles!" Gunter explained those are added after the pizza leaves the oven.
Pizza Hut wanted the UK to announce their specialty pizza before the US to allow their advertising campaign to gain momentum. Studies report Americans eat 23 lbs., or 46 slices of pizza every year. Ribs are a close third favorite in southern and middle west states. Plans are to offer the BBQ Rib Stuffed Crust Pizza in those states initially, but if sales are good they may expand to other areas.
Gunter thinks odds are good. "We think Pizza and Ribs will catch on with all Americans - like Pizza and Beer!"
