The Real Reason People Stopped Buying Pizza Hut's Priazzo

Before there was Stuffed Crust, there was Priazzo. In 1985, Pizza Hut introduced the deep-dish-like concoction, which was reportedly like eating a bread bowl made with tomato sauce, cheese, and meat. The Hut spent more than $36 million dollars on the Priazzo, and even hyped it as authentically Italian, which varieties called the Roma, the Florentine, the Milano, and the Napoli.
But then sometime between 1991 and 1993, the fan-favorite Priazzo disappeared, and nostalgic Pizza Hut fans online today are gathering to mourn it. Why would the pizza chain get rid of a dish that customers loved so much? Here's the real reason Pizza Hut got rid of the Priazzo.

  • Did you ever try Pizza Hut's Priazzo? What did you think?

    • I really liked it! You can still get something similar at some smaller pizza places, typically called "stuffed pizza". I wouldn't recommend ordering more than a slice or two, unless you want to take some leftovers home. It's very filling.

  • The priazzo looked really good. But, I can understand why Pizza Hut stopped making it if the costs were expensive. If I didn't watch this video, I would've thought it was a deep dish pizza. 😄 Pizza Hut is still good IMO. I especially love their stuffed crust. 🍕🍕😋

  • I worked for Pizza Hut as a youngen and used to hate making these. Not only did it require the special pans, but heat dispersing gadgets on top were required to make sure it cooked in the middle while going through the oven. Removing them was tricky. If it wasn't done right, the top of the pie would get messed up. We often had to send it back through half way even then. That said, it was amazing. I still make my own version of this pie at home.

  • If Pizza Hut only realized that if they used the original ingredients and knew that there’s actually a FB group growing all the time to Bring Back the Priazzo!!! Personally I’m dying for an original Milano! The ‘special equipment’ is a mere Heat Sink. Not a budget buster nor justification for not bringing it back. At their current struggles, it would be SOOOOOOO worth it (as long as they go to the quality of ingredients from those days. Face it, their ingredient quality hasn’t worked for them.

    • Pizza Hut used to be greasy in the 90s. But, I noticed by the mid to late 2000s when I ate there it wasn't like that anymore. Certain ingredients such as pepperoni can also make pizza a little greasier than another topping like spinach or chicken.
