Pizza Hut re-introduces fan-fave from the 90s

(New York, New York)

Allow me to reintroduce myself! Pizza Hut has announced that it’s officially bringing back an iconic fan-favorite pizza from the 90s starting February 1. Allow us to re-introduce The Big New Yorker. 

Pizza lovers may remember the iconic menu item from when it was first introduced in 1999. Since being retired from the menu, there have been numerous requests to bring it back to the menu including social media accounts dedicated to its hopeful return, Reddit threads and even a petition with thousands of signatures.

The Big New Yorker is inspired by the spirit of New York with an XL pizza that is as big and bold as the city that never sleeps. Each 16” pizza features six oversized, foldable slices with crispy crust and bold flavors including sweet marinara sauce, extra cheese, parmesan oregano seasoning on top to mimic authentic New York pizzeria build.

One order of The Big New Yorker extra-large pizza comes with double pepperoni, or one choose-your-own topping for a price starting at $13.99. Orders can be customized with extra toppings or extra cheese for an additional charge.


“The Big New Yorker was a huge hit when we launched it in 1999, setting the stage for future industry innovations like Pizza Hut Melts and Detroit-Style pizza,” said Lindsay Morgan, Chief Marketing Officer at Pizza Hut. “At 30%larger than our large pizza, now is the perfect time to answer our customers’ requests and bring back The Big New Yorker in a big way right before the big game next month.

The mouthwatering 16” New York-style pizza will return to the menu available in participating Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide for a limited time only starting February 1, 2023. Hut Rewards members will get exclusive access to try the Big New Yorker starting January 31.

New York, New York, Big Pizza of Dreams…
