WXIA) -- Twenty years ago, Pizza Hut delivered its first-ever pizza to be ordered over the Internet.
Now, the pizza chain is celebrating this milestone by offering a half-off online deal for customers.
Medium and large Pizza Hut pizzas will be 50 percent off when ordered online now through Jan. 10.
Pizza Hut has also launched Hut Lovers, a loyalty program that provides members with exclusive deals.
A large pepperoni, mushroom and extra cheese Pizza Hut pizza was the first physical good ever purchased online, according to Pizza Hut chief marketing officer Carrie Walsh.
"We want to celebrate the fact that before consumers could buy books, clothes, music or vacation packages via the Internet, they could place an online order for a Pizza Hut pizza," Walsh said in a statement. "We're doing so by giving back to our customers who have helped us lead the way with digital innovations over the last 20 years."
