A new pizzeria is opened at the UWS. It’s a pizza hut.

In the glory days of growing up, many of you may remember the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program. The BOOK IT! is for teachers to set reading goals for children; If they hit the mark, they’ll receive a free personal pancake pizza from The Hut. Soon, Upper West Side teachers will have a local spot to pick up these incentives with the announcement that Pizza Hut is coming to 940 Columbus Avenue between West 106th and 107th Streets.

Living in one of the largest pizza districts in the world, chain store ‘za probably isn’t at the top of many of our “wish lists”. If you look at the silver lining, however, there is a small benefit. For starters, late-night dining options have become increasingly scarce since the pandemic. Pizza Hut offers quick dishes that you can pick up for a great price.

Much like Domino’s Pizza, always remember to use the Pizza Hut coupons – only suckers pay full price. Current offerings include the $10 Tastemaker, which lets you choose three toppings for a large hand-tossed or Thin ‘N Crispy crust pizza. There’s also Pizza Hut’s Original Stuffed Crust with a topping for $13.99, or relive your youth with the BOOK IT! Bundle that includes two large pizzas and breadsticks for $23.99. It looks like they’re playing on nostalgia with this offer, as no book reading credits are required to be presented for this deal. Pizza Hut also has WingStreet Wings.

According to Pizza Hut’s website, this will be the fourth Pizza Hut in Manhattan. (Current locations include a Pizza Hut Express at 13 West 100th Street in the Associated Supermarket.)

Dunkin’ Donuts is also moving to the neighborhood at 2600 Broadway between West 98th and 99th Streets, the space formerly occupied by 16 Handles. (Thanks to Laurie Marshall of Trademarks the Spot for the tip.)

We’ll keep you posted as we learn when these two locations open. You have some time to catch up on your reading.
