The first New Zealand Pizza Hut restaurant opened in New Lynn (Auckland) in September 1974. We currently have over 80 Pizza Hut stores throughout New Zealand – made up of dine-in restaurants and our delivery and takeout ‘delco’ stores. Nearly everyone, anywhere can enjoy a Pizza Hut pizza!
We’re constantly on the lookout for ways to improve our customer service -that means fine tuning this website, our call centre (0800 83 83 83) and keeping our incredibly motivated team members up to date with the latest customer service trends.
Pizza Hut in New Zealand stands for serving the best quality pizzas in New Zealand.
To do this we’re constantly looking at new products which we’ve developed for Kiwis, or delicious dishes that may have been hugely successful overseas and which we know will appeal to discerning New Zealanders.
It’s all about quality, taste and excitement – and key to that is ‘fresh’.
All Pizza Hut dough is made fresh in store daily – yes, daily.
All our ingredients are sourced from quality suppliers who must meet our stringent standards of excellence.
And all our pizzas and other yummy sides are made to order and under strict guidelines.
Good pizza starts with the perfect base
You just can’t resist our Pan Pizza. A thick dough that is light & fluffy inside and golden on the outside. It’s bound to please every time. Its NZ’s favourite base, but just one of the pizzas bases we have on offer!
Our Pizza Hut Thin ‘n’ Crispy really changed the face of pizza in New Zealand. Customers truly savour the full flavour of their favourite toppings on a delicious crispy base.
The ‘Stuffed Crust’ pizza is just as sensationally popular in New Zealand as it is overseas! We call it the pizza you eat backwards – with delicious mozzarella, not to mention other mouth-watering combinations, stuffed into the crust. It’s a huge hit and we mean HUGE!
Now that we’ve been through the pizza bases – it’s time to talk about the taste sensations that go on top.
It’s funny that as much as we change and innovate, New Zealand’s top three favourites have always been and will probably always be the Meat Lovers, Hawaiian and the Super Supreme! Great flavours made from the best ingredients – that’s what Pizza Hut is all about. You can choose from a wide range of toppings – 100% sliced chicken breast, tasty beef, cabanossi, ham, seafood and juicy pineapple to name a few. Check out our menu for the huge variety of options.
You can always count on Pizza Hut to deliver the freshest, tastiest pizza. And we’re always on the lookout for new flavours and textures.

Making the experience even better
We never stand still and we always want to know how we can get better. And we want to be best at everything: food quality, service and value plus cleanliness, hospitality, accuracy of order, maintenance and speed of service. We do this through market surveys and by measuring your feedback. Feel free to give us your thoughts on our service here.
From time to time Pizza Hut issues discount coupons or added value coupons for use by Pizza Hut customers. Coupons may be available in a variety of formats e.g. printed vouchers, gift vouchers, emails or web offers. We’ll use the word ‘coupon’ to cover all these scenarios unless otherwise indicated.
Coupons are usually for limited time offers and may differ by region, though not always.
From time to time our stores may also offer different prices to those published on the website. If you order a pizza for pick up from the website and when you pick it up the price in store is lower than what you paid online or were quoted for the exact same order, we will gladly refund the difference. If you have not already paid we will also pass on the difference. This does not apply to pizzas that are delivered.
To get a discount or added value advertised in a coupon you must give us the coupon – whether the order is pick up or delivery.
When ordering via the Call Centre or the web with a coupon you have to state the coupon code on the coupon. If you don’t do this you’ll end up being charged the full menu price and we wouldn’t want you missing out on a great deal now, would we?!
Unless otherwise indicated, coupons are valid for one item or offer per order per day, and may not be available in conjunction with other offers, coupons or special deals.
You can add a wide variety of extra toppings to your pizza for as little as $2 per item. You can however only have a maximum of 7 toppings – otherwise your pizza just won’t be cooked to perfection!
You also get to select the type of base you’d like for your Pizza Hut pizzas at no extra charge – choose from Pan, Classic or Thin’n Crispy. However, a surcharge applies for both Stuffed Crust and XL base options unless otherwise stated.
You can also remove any topping you don’t like, at no extra charge.
A minimum order value of $24.00 is required for delivery. From time to time, an additional surcharge may apply in the event that we are able to deliver to your address, which sits outside of our normal delivery zone.
Delivery is not available in all areas, or at all times of the day.
Our valued delivery drivers do not carry more than $20 cash.
If you are ordering more than 10 pizzas in one go – we need at least an hour’s notice. We’d hate to disappoint you.

The Pizza Hut Story – USA
The legacy of Pizza Hut began in 1958, when two college students from Wichita, Kansas, USA, Frank and Dan Carney, were approached by a family friend with the idea of opening a pizza parlour. Although the concept was relatively new to many Americans at that time, the brothers quickly saw the potential of this new enterprise.
After borrowing $600 from their mother, they purchased some second-hand equipment and rented a small building on a busy intersection in their home town. The result of their entrepreneurial efforts was the first Pizza Hut restaurant, and the foundation for what would become the largest and most successful pizza restaurant chain in the world.
Over the past four decades Pizza Hut has built a reputation for excellence that has earned us the respect of consumers and industry experts alike. Our products have been voted Number One in countless consumer surveys in the USA. And our accomplishments as an innovative business leader have been cited by such respected publications as Restaurant Business, Fortune and The Wall Street Journal.
Pizza Hut, a division Yum! has more than 7,200 outlets in the U.S. and 3,000 stores in more than 86 other countries.
What did it take to build a successful business of that magnitude? It took hard work, to be sure. And it took a commitment to quality and a dedication to service and value. But perhaps as much as anything, it took the qualities of entrepreneurship, growth and leadership which have characterized our business through nearly four decades of success.
Pizza Hut franchisees, for example, exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit which launched the system back in 1958. Through their interest and initiative, the Pizza Hut system was able to develop new territories both in the United States and overseas.
Yum! is the parent company to two other segment leaders, KFC and Taco Bell. When combined with Pizza Hut, these organisations make up the world’s largest restaurant group, with almost twice as many units as the nearest competitor McDonald’s.
When it comes to leadership our proactive approach to product development and marketing provides ample evidence of our abilities. Beginning with the original thin crust pizza first served in 1958, Pizza Hut has made continuing efforts to refine our products, and to develop new products suited to every consumer taste.
Today, our major products, Pan Pizza, and Thin ‘N Crispy pizza are loved by millions around the world and have become the standard by which all others are judged.
We are working together to run great restaurants in order to be the best at making and serving the best pizza in the world. That means we’re willing and able to go to any lengths to make our customer’s experience with Pizza Hut® an enjoyable one. And it means we strive to present the finest products the industry has to offer, and to provide those products wherever and whenever people want them.
Yes, we’ve come a long way since that opening night back in 1958 when pizzas were given away to generate interest in the fledgling business. And through the strength of our heritage, our culture and our people, we look forward to even more success in the years ahead.
