These were a super treat! When I was in elementary school, Pizza Hut started the reading program for kids called "Book It!" (around 1985) and the reward for reading a certain number of books was a certificate for a personal pan pizza. I was a nerdy bookworm and got several of these, but it was hard to convince my parents to drive 15 miles to eat at the nearest Pizza Hut (I grew up in rural NC and it was considered a BIG deal to drive that far for a meal then). This was a once every 3 month kind of treat. The class in the school that cumulatively read the most books also got a free pizza party, but I was always in a class of slackers. Oh well...

I totally remember these and the Book It program! we got a button too and they would put a gold star on it when you picked up your pizza!

I had at least 3 Book It! buttons while growing up, which the last few were Magic Motion buttons. I loved getting these little free pizzas (still do when I'm out working) for reading 5 books. It was the only time my parents and I ever went out to eat for Pizza Hut.

I remember back in 1983 at the age of 12 when I had my very first personal pan pizza. I still 26 years later in 2009 at age 38 enjoy the tasty treat.

It's been a long time since I've had one, but Personal Pan Pizza is so good! I, too remember getting them with the Book It program.

at first these were only available during lunch hours, then they became a regular menu item. By the time I had gone finished high school they were being sold at summer festivals, outside concert venues, and on university campuses. I'm sure the marketing push was retaliation for McPizza which failed miserably just prior to the times I mention

Came out in 1983 and started at just $1.49!

Just saw that Pizza Hut will be offering a Hot Dog Crust pizza. Really! 24 mini hot dogs around the if Pizza Hut wasn't salty or greasy enough! Some foods go good together like PB& & hot dogs NO!

Battle of the personal pan pizza, a Wisconsin story. Pizza Hut's PPP was average in quality, but inexpensive compared to the larger thin, hand-tossed or deep dish. In the mid 1980s, there were two other strong, national competitors. There was Shakey's (f. Sacramento, CA, 1954), a chain in decline, but made decent pan pizza for $2-3. There were two in the area. Wauwatosa (o. 1970, c. 2004), and Racine (o.1966, c. 1984, now a tavern). Third chain, Rocky Rococo (f. 1974, Madison), which features pan pizza by slice. 28 of the chain's 30 stores in Wisconsin. Shakey's remaining stores now only in California. For those not familiar, The character, Rocky Rococo, looks and dresses like Capone, but is quite congenial in his TV commercials.

We have a Shakey's Pizza Parlor here in Washington state Mr. Lambert. It is no way as good as it was back in the way back (1960's-1970's) For a great old school pizza there's always Pietro's Pizza in Hood River Oregon!

Yeah. My info source missed the Washington Shakey's. Glad you brought it up. There's also a Rocky Rococo store in Spokane, at W520 Main St. The other non-Wisconsin store is near Minneapolis. The Milwaukee Shakey's was in West Allis, not Wauwatosa. A conglomerate from Singapore (of all places) bought Shakey's in the early 2000's, closing all but the west coast stores.

One more segment on Shakey's Pizza under this heading. Found a 1968 TV Guide with an ad for Shakey's. This chain, until the late 1970s, had live entertainment. Usually, one or two older gents would fill the dining area with honky tonk music (in Racine, WI, with piano and banjo) on Friday nights and weekends. Some stores also showed old silent movies, accompanied by live piano. Heavy emphasis also was on sales of dark beer. The store in Racine, closed in 1984, is now a sports bar called Buckets. Toward 1985, Shakey's underwent major changes...from that of English pub and pizzeria, to that more resembling Chuck E Cheese, to draw younger customers and families, with less emphasis on beer consumption and amenities for "older" people. The Shakey's in West Allis had video games, plus climb-and-slide attractions for kids, when I last visited there in 2002.
