Introduced in 1974 and designed in collaboration between Lippincott and then-current Pizza Hut marketing executive Sam Moyers, this was the first logo to fully incorporate the iconic red roof. On June 17, 2019, the logo was revived by the company, but it soon became their main logo alongside the 2014 logo.
In October 1999, the chain launched a new logo, designed by Landor Associates, with a new script font and the dot on the "i" in "Pizza" was colored green (possibly representing margherita). Also, a yellow line was placed underneath the script. From 2010 to 2014, it was used as a secondary logo.
This logo was used in countries in South America and was also used in Hong Kong, Israel, and Southeast Asia. It was introduced in 2008 and was used internationally until 2017.
In February 2010, the "red roof" design was given a glossy look, and the script was modified. This logo was still used at some locations until the end of 2015.
February–November 2014 (North America)
In February 2014, the yellow stripe at the bottom of the wordmark and the green dot on the "i" in "Pizza" were dropped from the logo, the wordmark was tilted and moved down further from the "red roof" design. This logo is still used in some countries.

In November 2014, Pizza Hut announced a major change to its menu and the look of its restaurants. They also announced a new logo and box design, which were launched on November 19. The logo consists of the short-lived logo in white, placed on a red circle drawn much akin to a brushstroke. The red circle also, appropriately, looks like tomato sauce being spread around on a pizza. On boxes, a variant that has only the roof inside the circle is used. Despite being replaced with the 1974 logo on advertising, this logo is also still being used at most locations as well as Yum! Brands' corporate website.
