Restaurant chain Pizza Hut has expanded its menu by re-launching a menu item, P’zone, as part of its partnership with NCAA March Madness tournament.

After 17 years since its debut the P’zone will be back on menus at Pizza Huts nationwide.

P’zone is made using a toasted parmesan pizza crust, pizza toppings and melted cheese, baked calzone style and is served with marinara dipping sauce.  It is also available in three different recipes such as Pepperoni, Meaty and Supremo.

Pizza Hut chief brand officer Marianne Radley said: “March Madness is one of the most captivating sports moments of the year. We are excited to bring back the P’zone as part of our $5 Line-up during a time when family and friends will be gathering in anticipation and excitement.

“Even if your team doesn’t advance in the tournament, the comeback of the P’ZONE® is something we know all fans can rally around.”

The P’zone is currently available to customers as a single variant or as part of the $5 lineup at Pizza Hut locations across the US. It is also available for delivery, take-away or dine-in.

“Even if your team doesn’t advance in the tournament, the comeback of the P’ZONE® is something we know all fans can rally around.”

Pizza Hut, a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, currently operates more than 18,000 restaurants across 100 countries.

The restaurant chain has easy order options including the Pizza Hut app, mobile site, and Amazon and Google devices.

Last month, the American restaurant chain established its partnership with FedEx to test a new autonomous delivery robot.

The SameDay Bot is being developed by FedEx in collaboration with DEKA Research and Development.
