Pizza Hut will be pairing up with country music artist Blake Shelton for a new summer BBQ pizza promotion according to Great American Country on May 15, 2014. The new BBQ pizzas will come in three different flavors, all of which bring BBQ and pizza together for one delicious dish.
Shelton grew up in the small town of Ada, Oklahoma. There were not a lot of places for the younger crowd to hang out, so they chose the local Pizza Hut as their hangout and probably why Shelton has committed to this new Pizza Hut promotion. It's a brand he is familiar with and loves.
Shelton is excited to partner with Pizza Hut in this new promotion because he says it brings "two of his favorite foods together." The new Pizza Hut BBQ pizzas will come in three flavors: Blake's Smokehouse BBQ, Hawaiian BBQ, and Honey BBQ Chicken. The new BBQ pizzas will retail for $11.00 each.
The new line of BBQ pizzas will combine the ingredients of the new honey BBQ sauce with the delicious cheddar cheese crust and other "special" ingredients to make each bite a delicious satisfaction. The Executive Chief of Pizza Hut, Wiley Bates, III, had this to say about the new promotion and partnering with Blake Shelton, “We drew inspiration from Blake Shelton in forming recipes that are distinctive yet appealing to a variety of tastes, and we think the results are really going to wow those consumers looking for adventurous flavors in their food.”
As part of the new summer BBQ promotion, Pizza Hut will have cardboard cutouts of Blake Shelton standing up in their stores for customers to swoon over or even take a photo with stand-up country music artist. Shelton will also be making surprise guests appearances at Pizza Hut stores in larger cities throughout the summer months. If there is ever a reason to order a carry-out pizza, this is it!
