"Great food combinations don't come along very often, but we've created an instant classic at Pizza Hut with the new Garlic Bread Pizza," said Kurt Kane, Pizza Hut CMO.  "Right now our customers are getting together with friends and family for good times, and it's our job to help them make that experience great. Showing up to a summer party with Garlic Bread Pizza is about as great as it gets."

Food Combo Hall of Fame
Much like the halls of fame for professional sports, induction into the Food Combo Hall of Fame is no easy feat.  Each portion of the combination must possess a history of success and loyal consumer following on its own that generates a certain level of irresistibility when united.

Garlic bread and pizza have long been a favorite for American diners. Bringing them together under the red roof at Pizza Hut satisfies an anticipated collaboration that is sure to vault the new combo into the ranks of the greatest ever.  In fact, in a recent survey by Wakefield Research for Pizza Hut, nearly 2 in 5 (39 percent) Americans surveyed are surprised Garlic Bread Pizza has not appeared sooner. In the same survey, pepperoni (55 percent) and garlic bread (36 percent) were the top vote-getters to accompany the winner of the "best performing food," pizza.

For a limited time, the new phenom of food combinations Garlic Bread Pizza is available at Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide for only $8.99 for a one-topping.
