Pizza Hut announced Tuesday the return of ‘90s favorite tavern-style pizza, the Edge, as a limited-time offering. The thin-crust pizza was first introduced in 1997 and uses Pizza Hut’s original “Thin ‘n Crispy” dough recipe and features toppings all the way to the edge of the pie, with no crust bordering the pizza.
The Edge uses a sweetened tomato sauce and a proprietary garlic and herb seasoning that’s only used on this pizza. The pie itself is cut into 16 rectangular “cracker-thin” pieces meant for sharing.
Along with the debut of Korean pop (K-pop) group BTS’s signature meal at McDonald’s, the quick-service giant will also be releasing a line of merchandise for fans, the brand announced.
