The entry: BarBQ Pizza from Pizza Hut. Barbq Sauce was used instead of tomato sauce and then covered with cheese and any topics desired. My favorite pizza ever. incorrect. I worked at a Pizza Hut when I was in high school in the 80's. It was a regular pizza crust with regular pizza sauce, and this shredded BBQ beef that came to the restaraunt in plain white tubs. It was almost impossible to make if nobody had thought to defrost a tub-o-BBQ that day, which happened, as it wasn't all that popular. I agree, it was the best pizza pizza hut ever had. I liked to put mountains of shredded beef and cheese on mine :)

BAR-B-QUE pizza was the bees knees. Since Pizza Hut no longer makes it, I'm forced to make it at home. I honestly think Pizza Hut's version used BBQ pork, not beef.

I live in North Carolina and the Pizza Huts in our area still serve BBQ pizza at their buffets. It still seeems fairly popular since it goes rather quickly once it is put out. My husband always has to request them to make another one (it is his favorite).

I'm with Wendy, I thought it was gross. When I worked at KFC in 1984 I remember a friend of ours brought us one when he got off work at Pizza Hut and nobody would touch it.

It's still sold in some of the Southern Pizza Hutts. It's my favorite for sure. Any other bar bq pizza i've had has always been chicken which is nothing like pizza huts.

Pizza Hut's BBQ Pizza is one of the best. However, I understand how some are disgusted by it's unorthodox combination. It's really simple though. It's not BBQ pizza it's BBQ AND it's pizza. Hope that helped.

BBQ Pizza is just to die for my family and I love it. It's just hard to find a pizza hut that sells it please help a chick from Georgia out.

One of the Pizza Hut's in my area still carried. Hoever, I was looking to order a pizza today and see it's no longer on the menu! I was just doing a web search to see if it's been discontinued. I hope not because I really love it. BTW, I live in Tallahassee, FL. I've also gotten BBQ pizza a the Pizza Hut in Marathon, FL. I was getting it there for years when Tallahassee stopped carrying it. I was so glad when they brought it back. I'll be devastated if it's been discontinued again. Most other pizza restaurants that do BBQ pizzas use chicken instead of beef and I don't like that so much. I've made BBQ pizza at home so if it is gone again, I can resort to that.

Firs taco bell ditches "taco light" and "taco belgrande" then pudding pops, now barbeque pizza is gone and no one in my house thinks it was made since the 80's? The only thing I would dare eat from a crappy franchise premade pizza joint was that barbeque pizza...

BarBQ Pizza from Pizza Hut was the best in the world. My kids loved it and I would love to see Pizza Hut bring it back, maybe we should all get up a petition to get Pizza Hut to bring back that wonderful pizza!!!

I worked at a Pizza Hut Delivery Unit back in the early 90's in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. This BBQ pizza was the top selling pizza back then! I loved it myself and wish so bad that the Pizza Huts here in Virginia sold them. I remember when we made them, they were usually always made with the pan dough (deep dish). We'd add a small amount of pizza sauce on top the dough, then a 1/2 cup of cheese, then pull apart pieces of the bbq which I'm not sure if it were pork or beef, then top it off with mozzarella and triple blend cheese. Run it through the oven, cut it and then the best pizza ever was made!! My husband makes his own pizzas all the time, and am going to have him try a bbq one next time. But the store bought BBQ sucks in my opinion. And it's a lot of work buying a Boston Butt, taking all day to cook it in a crock pot, then tear it into smaller pieces and get out as much fat as possible, then add the BBQ sauce and cook another hour in the crock pot, just to throw some on top a pizza. That's how I make my home made BBQ anyways. Boston Butt's are the tenderest meat (pork) for making BBQ. And cooking it in a crock pot for 24 hours does make it easier for the meat to fall off the bone and also makes the meat very very tender. Now if anyone knows of a good store bought, pre-made BBQ worth trying, please list the names please! And I always found Pizza Huts BBQ pizza better on the pan dough instead of hand-toss or thin dough. Anyways, sorry for rambling, but if your ever at a Pizza Hut and you see BBQ Pizza on their menu, try it! You'll definitely not regret it! This was truly the most amazing pizza ever!!!!

You can still order this pizza here in Alabama (Birmingham), it tastes awesome - order the deep dish version. I'm pretty sure it's BBQ beef. The sauce has a sweet bbq taste. It is the only pizza we order from Pizza Hut these days. We tried to make it at home, but can't find the brand of bbq at the store - anyone know what it is?

Tony - I am ordering Pizza Hut online in Nashville (Belleuve area) as we speak and one of the options is BBQ Pizza. There was no other explanation on their site which is why I Googled "Pizza Hut BBQ Pizza" and found this site. If you are near Nashville then perhaps you can get some!

I live in Iowa, and we no longer have this pizza! We haven't seen light of this pizza for a decade and I miss being able to have it. Pizza Hut has had some really good pizzas in the past, but now I feel they are going downhill a bit. Not just the BBQ pizza, but they used to also have a really good Steak Lover's pizza with the A-1 on it. I wished they could bring that back also...

it was definately beef brisket. i loved this pizza. I wouldn't call it barbeque because i don't think the brisket was smoked like with authentic texas barbeque but i have gone to a local barbeque joint and gotten a half pound of chopped brisket covered it in sauce and then taken it to a local pizza shop and had them spoon it on the pizza and run it through. turned out pretty good.

If they don't carry it in your area, write Pizza Hut and let them know you want it! It was by far my favorite pizza. The BBQ Chicken is ok.

I remember the BarBQ pizzas well. I made quite a few during my stint as a Pizza Hut cook in the summer of '88. I preferred the BarBQ sandwiches though. I ate a mountain of them when the boss wasn't around.

I grew up eating this pizza in crystal river, fl. Now I live in NY and they do not have it here, just other versions like the bbq chicken which doesnt compare! I went back to my hometown recently and was excited to have some again, called up, ordered it and got a bbq chicken pizza with diced chicken on it- not like the shredded beef used to be. So dissappointed :(

The Pizza Hut on Jones rd in northwest Houston had it but stopped selling it about 2 years ago. I'm gonna find out who makes the Barbecue beef topping and buy it directly from them then put it on a large pan pizza myself. I'll post the name of the company when I find it without a pizza hut selling it should do the samw

I LOVE the Barbecue pizza from Pizza Hut.I have been eating it since I was a little girl. My local Pizza Hut stopped making the Barbecue pizza about 5 years ago. I was so bummed out when they stopped making it. Recently I had heard that my Pizza Hut added Barbecue pizza back to the menu again, so I called last night and the rumor was TRUE!!! I ordered me a LARGE and had it for dinner last night and lunch today =) One happy girl right here =) By far it is the BEST Pizza in my eyes...

I got online to see if there was a standard for the entire Pizza Hut chain and the way they make BBQ pizza and now realize it is different everywhere. Our town has 2 pizza Huts and both offer BBQ Beef Pizza with BBQ sauce as the base sauce and we went to another out of town tonight and I ordered it and it came with regular sauce instead of BBQ and it was not even close to being as good.

If you live in Tennessee, all of the Memphis area Pizza Huts still make BBQ pizzas. I get one every few months. I worked for Pizza Hut in the 80s. Back then, you could order either beef or pork BBQ which came in the big white tubs another poster referred to, but because some customers had a problem with pork products being used, the company switched to beef only.It was disgusting as hell to make, but I love the cooked product. BTW, the standard was to use regular crust and sauce. Some individual stores might have used BBQ sauce as a base, but that was definitely the exception not the rule.

The BBQ Lover's pizza went national at Pizza Hut about 3 years ago and the old BBQ pizza available in the South was dropped. I ordered one for my family in Ohio since I have loved them in Memphis for years. Total disappointment. The new pizza has bacon and ham along with beef, with BBQ sauce drizzled on top. Nothing like the original. Stopped me from going to Pizza Hut for two years

Yeah, it's BBQ Beef Topping in a white tub. They had it when I worked there in 2001 and I got one a couple years ago (2015?). The trick is, it's no longer a topping. It's a specialty pizza.. so just like they have "Meat lovers" and "pepperoni lovers" you can get a "BBQ Beef" pizza. Only drawback is it will set you back at least 16 bucks. As a former employee who has tried just about everything, my absolute favorite pizza from them is a large pan crust with BBQ Beef, Bacon, Pineapple, and extra cheese.
