For the First Time Ever, This Major Pizza Chain Reveals Its Secret Menu Items

Some secrets are made to be told—and that is especially true when it comes to fast food. Fast-food chains have long benefitted from the rumor mill surrounding their respective "secret menus." Off-menu items that only insiders would know about are a sure sign of an enthusiastic fanbase, and everyone from In-N-Out to Popeyes dabbles in the phenomenon. Rarely, though, does a brand publicly acknowledge their secret menu.

But the cat's out of the bag with Pizza Hut—the chain has actually proudly announced its first-ever official secret menu, one its fans have been DIYing for years. After an impressive year of serving up new and old fan-favorites like the Edge and the Detroit-style pie, The Hut is getting sacrilegious in the best way possible: openly encouraging secret-menu ordering.

Turns out, even a pizza chain's menu can be highly customizable, although the items do require a bit of at-home finessing. Read on to uncover the no-longer-secret concoctions you can get from The Hut. For more, check out The Best Secret Menu Options at Your Favorite Fast-Food Chains.


Honey BBQ Chicken Pizza

This secret menu item is exactly as promising as it sounds: a glorious pie stacked with flavorful chicken and topped with ranch. To get in on the sweet-and-savory action, start by ordering a BBQ Chicken Pizza without chicken, an order of Honey BBQ Boneless Wings, and a side of ranch (hot take from our perspective, maybe grab a couple of sides of ranch). Once at home, top the pizza with the wings, drizzle on that ranch, and dig in.

Garlic Buffalo Sliders

We may have never thought to stick these three things together—garlic, buffalo, and sliders—but Pizza Hut's fans have combined them in a way that makes for a perfect appetizer. To make, order breadsticks, Buffalo Boneless Wings, and a side of blue cheese. At home, you'll need to make tiny rolls for the chicken: first, halve the breadsticks lengthwise, then slice each stick again into smaller squares. Finally, with your mini roll secured, insert a boneless wing and slather with blue cheese.


Buffalo Cheese Sticks

Yet another buffalo-flavored secret menu item from The Hut, which begs the question: are fans headed there for the pizza, or for the apparently-perfect buffalo sauce? You can be the judge when you order this secret menu item, which requires Cheese Sticks, the grilled chicken topping, a side of buffalo sauce, and a side of ranch. At home, break out 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar, and get to concocting. Start by topping the breadsticks with the chicken and both kinds of cheese. Then throw them in the oven (at 350℉) for 3–4 minutes, and finally, top with the buffalo and ranch sauces.

This not-to-secret menu item gets points off the bat for its name—it's very clever, even though we would really just call this a pasta-topped pizza. To create, order a cheese pizza, an order of Meaty Marinara Pasta, and then add 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella. Start by popping the pasta atop the pizza, and then finishing with a layer of cheese. Simply bake at 350℉ for 3–4 minutes, and voila! You have yourself the greatest-named secret menu item there ever was.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
