Pizza Hut debuted four new Oven-Baked Pastas nationwide Thursday, expanding and adding more variety to the pizza chain’s pasta lineup.
It’s the first time since 2003 that Pizza Hut has revamped its pastas.
The four pasta bakes are developed from new recipes that feature premium ingredients and savory sauces. The selection includes Chicken Alfredo, Italian Meats, Cheesy Alfredo and Veggie.
Individually, each starts at $8.99, but guests can also order “Family Pasta Pairs”—any two starting at $13.99.
“Customers come to Pizza Hut for the best tasting pizza and new pizza innovations, but we now have pastas that are premium, great tasting and affordable for you or your family,” Lindsay Morgan, Chief Marketing Officer of Pizza Hut, said in a statement.
The recipes were developed with distinct but familiar flavor profiles.
Chicken Alfredo is a classic combo of creamy Alfredo sauce, grilled chicken and oven-baked cheese, while Cheesy Alfredo features the new Alfredo sauce and two layers of cheese with baked Parmesan on top.
The Italian Meats is made with sweet tomato sauce, pepperoni, Italian sausage and cheese. For diners who opt to go meatless, the Veggie combines the same sweet tomato sauce, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, black olives and oven-baked cheese.
All are made with penne pasta and sprinkled with a Parmesan-oregano topping.
The penne shape replaces the rotini noodles introduced with the launch of Pizza Hut’s Tuscani pasta almost 20 years ago.
Customers can order the new baked pastas along with their pizza for delivery, carryout, curbside and Hut Lane pickup.
