– Pizza Hut announced today it partnered with Blake Shelton to launch a new line of BBQ Pizzas in three flavors: Blake's Smokehouse BBQ, Hawaiian BBQ and Honey BBQ Chicken.
"Growing up in Ada, Okla., Pizza Hut was a big deal in my community," said Shelton. "As a fan of BBQ and pizza, it has been a blast to partner with Pizza Hut to bring two of my favorite foods together."
The Smokehouse BBQ recipe is named in Shelton's honor. Blake's Smokehouse BBQ and the other two BBQ recipes, Hawaiian BBQ and Honey BBQ Chicken, are now available as a summer staple for $11.
Blake's Smokehouse BBQ features hardwood smoked bacon, smoked ham flavored with a hint of sugar and juicy pork.
Pizza Hut and Shelton fans from around the country will have their own chance to snap a portrait with the star and the BBQ pie. In select Pizza Hut restaurants and high traffic areas around the country, life-size cutouts of Shelton holding his Smokehouse BBQ Pizza will be affixed for fans to capture a "Shelfie," a Shelton inspired take on the selfie. Fans are encouraged to share their "Shelfie" with Pizza Hut socially for potential surprise and delight giveaways, including free pizzas. More information will be available through the Pizza Hut twitter account. The cutouts will be of Ada, Okla., Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Nashville and other locations.
