Like a good knock-knock joke or a piñata filled with fresh undershirts, pizza is a universal crowd pleaser. Entertain the masses with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of pizza, drinks, and sides at Pizza Hut.
Pizza Hut opened in 1958 and continues to sling its famed hand-tossed-, pan-, thin-, and stuffed-crust pizzas alongside a menu of snack-ready eats. Aspiring pizza artisans can build their own pizzas ($3.25+ for a personal pan), choosing from any of the protein-packed meat toppings including pepperoni, ham, pork, beef, italian sausage, bacon pieces, and chicken. Use veggie toppings to augment a meaty meal, or craft a rounded garden cornucopia of mushrooms, green peppers, onions, black olives, diced tomatoes, and jalapeños.
After programming their personalized pie with a custom topping combo and preferred top 40 radio stations, customers can calibrate cheese and sauce levels to taste. Patrons can also opt for one of Pizza Hut’s time-tested proven favorite flavors, such as traditional supreme ($4.25 for a personal pan), Veggie Lovers' ($4.25 for a personal pan), and Meat Lovers' ($4.25 for a personal pan). Fizzy libations such as Pepsi and Mountain Dew ($2.75 for a 2-liter) keep mouth muscles properly lubricated throughout the eating session, after which diners can joust pals with fresh-baked cinnamon sticks drenched in icing ($5+).
