The Hawaiian Pizza is celebrating its 60th birthday this year and it’s been quite a rollercoaster six decades. Whether pineapple should be on pizza has spawned a thousand memes and almost ended countless relationships. It’s the most controversial pizza topping of all-time.

Pizza Hut, however, knows that most people appreciate the Hawaiian Pizza’s signature flavour. That’s why the fast food chain is giving out 35,000 FREE pizzas this month to mark the Hawaiian Pizza’s 60th anniversary.

It’s the perfect time for it too – not only is it the Hawaiian Pizza’s 60th birthday this year but International Hawaiian Pizza Day actually falls on August 20th.

Throughout the month, Pizza Hut will be giving away 35,000 pizzas – that works out at 1,000 free pizzas every day, with a mammoth 5,000 pizzas being given out on International Hawaiian Pizza Day itself. That’s almost too much free pizza.

Here’s how it works: simple head to the official Pizza Hut Australia website any day in August to claim a free pizza voucher. The first 1,000 people to enter before 4pm AEST will get the free voucher, but if you miss out, just come back the next day and the next day and so on to try your luck again.

There’s also a fun Hawaiian Pizza Slicing game to be played, with the Top 10 players each day winning a limited-edition Pizza Hut Hawaiian Shirt! That should make for a standout look the next time you head to the beach.

And that’s not all, with any player who hits the Top 10 each day getting an automatic entry into a draw to win an incredible family trip to the actual Hawaii. Just think how great it would be to find out how popular Hawaiian Pizza is in the country it gets its name from (the pizza actually originated in Canada but no one’s going to argue about that when a free trip to the beauty of Hawaii is on offer).
