Pizza Hut is Giving Away Pizzas and an Epic Hawaiian Holiday

Celebrate Hawaiian Pizza Day!

Did you know this year marks the 60th Anniversary of the Hawaiian pizza? This pizza has long been the cause of a war between pineapple on pizza lovers and, well, the non-pineapple on pizza lovers. Regardless if you’re a non-pineapple on pizza lover, you will want to celebrate this coveted day with Pizza Hut Australia because they’re giving away a Hawaiian holiday.

From humble beginnings to becoming an international phenomenon, Hawaiian pizza is a permanent fixture on menus across the globe. In 2014, Time Magazine crowned the Hawaiian pizza the top most influential pizza of all time. Even Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has publicly declared his love for pineapple on pizza.

Pizza Hut is throwing a month-long celebration to mark the milestone, giving away 35,000 pizzas, Hawaiian shirts, and an epic Hawaiian Holiday for one family.

Pizza Hut has also tracked down Australia’s biggest Hawaiian pizza superfan, Michael Singer from South Australia, to campaign for the Hawaiian pizza name—and of course, claim bragging rights to this legendary title.

To join in the celebrations, head to, where the first one thousand people to enter by 4 pm AEST can claim a free pizza voucher.

If you don’t score a free pizza, try again the next day and every day if you like. Win or lose, you’ll unlock a Hawaiian Pizza Slicing game, and if you rank in the 10 top that day, you’ll win a limited edition Pizza Hut Hawaiian Shirt. Anyone who hits the target daily automatically enters the draw to win an epic family trip to Hawaii.

The competition is valid from Monday, August 1, to Wednesday, August 31.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
