It's been 8 years since we've seen this item available at Pizza Hut. Now it's back and it exists because of college basketball.

Not sure of the correlation between a cult-favorite food item and college hoops but Pizza Hut is bringing back the P'Zone for a limited time during the NCAA Basketball tournament.

If you've forgotten the P'Zone's existence, People says it's best described as:

an inside-out pizza, with Parmesan-crusted dough stuffed with ooey-gooey cheese and savory pizza toppings, then baked and served with a side of marinara.

Pepperoni, Meaty and Supremo options of the Pizza Hut P'Zone are currently available for customers.

Better yet, the Pizza Hut P'Zone will only run you $5.99. There are three Rockford Pizza Hut locations; 3329 11th Street, 2560 South Alpine Road, and 3748 North Main Street.
