The fine folks at Pizza Hut are offering a deal today that I can truly get behind.
The company plans to donate 15 percent of proceeds from all pizzas sold today in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas to the United Way Tornado Disaster Fund to help tornado victims in Joplin and other parts of the Midwest. The deal applies to dine-in, carryout an delivery orders.
Perhaps Pizza Hut was moved to action by the story of its manager in Joplin, Christopher Don Lucas, who died trying to save his co-workers and customers on May 22. President Obama mentioned Lucas in his speech in Joplin a few days after the disaster.
My favorite Pizza Hut pizza of all time? Thin crust cheese with extra sauce and extra cheese. Thin crust hamburger and mushroom is a close second.
Let’s all order. It’s too hot to cook, anyway.
