Pizza Hut has brought back the iconic The Edge pizza
The nostalgia for the 1990s continues to be strong. We’ve seen it in fashion, in music, in entertainment and even in food, as over the past year various brands have brought back beloved favorites from the best decade either in the form of offers for a limited time or permanently. And Pizza Hut is also doing it again by bringing back the iconic The Edge pizza this summer for a limited time.
Available now, The Edge is back on Pizza Hut menus again this year. The pizza, one of the brand’s most famous, was originally introduced in 1997 and is a thin crust pizza built on Thin ‘N Crispy dough. What gives the pizza its edge is that the toppings cover said dough from edge to edge. And while The Edge pizza itself is iconic, the dough it’s built on is itself an important part of Pizza Hut’s history as the first type of dough ever used when Pizza opened. Hut in 1958.
This is the second time Pizza Hut has brought back The Edge in recent years. The fan-requested pizza was also brought back in 2021 for a limited time, but before that the pizza was last seen on the menu in a rare re-release in 2009. Last year, the President of Pizza Hut’s David Graves explained how the pizza is the one fans “constantly ask for”.
“The Edge is a pizza that our customers constantly ask us to bring back. Anyone who loves thin crust pizzas loaded with toppings will love the Edge,” Graves said in a statement in 2021. “The bold flavor and aroma of the Edge seasoning will instantly take you back to a Pizza Hut.”
As for this year’s return, The Edge comes in four options. The Ultimate variety is topped edge-to-edge with pepperoni, Italian sausage, green peppers, onions and Roma tomatoes. The Carnivore includes pepperoni, ham, Italian sausages and bacon. The Pepperoni Lover’s is exactly that, a pizza filled with pepperoni from edge to edge and there’s also the Create Your Own which lets you choose up to three toppings. All four varieties are available to order now, but for a limited time only, so if you want to indulge in some nostalgia, pizza, now is the time.
