Out Pizza the Hut is a catchphrase used in a series of surreal and ironic memes, which warns against trying to "out pizza the hut," describing the consequences experienced by those who attempt to do so. It was inspired by Pizza Hut's slogan, "No One OutPizzas The Hut," which started in 2016. The phrase was first used on Twitter in 2016 but increased in usage within ironic Reddit communities in October 2019.


In 2016, the fast-food pizza chain Pizza Hut started using a new slogan at the end of their television commercials that stated, "No One OutPizzas The Hut." This is evident in two 2016 advertisements that both include the slogan, reposted to YouTube on October 7th, 2016, by the YouTuber Liviu Marica. The video (shown below) amassed roughly 41,500 views over the course of five years.

Likely as a response to the new Pizza Hut ads, Twitter[1] user DustinCriderMMA tweeted on September 22nd, 2016, "I personally think a few places out pizza the hut. Just my opinion though," serving as the earliest known online use of the phrase. The tweet (shown below) received only two likes in six years.

The phrase was used sporadically on Twitter going into 2017 and 2018. An early example of an "out pizza the hut" tweet comes from Twitter[2] user TheRealTomDomol, who tweeted on September 20th, 2016, "Rest assured. Chuck Norris would easily out pizza the Hut" (shown below, left). On November 10th, 2016, Twitter[3] user JustinMWollman tweeted, "You can't out pizza the hut," with an attached image of a pizza monster, earning nine likes in five years (shown below, right).
