"We're excited to offer the convenience of beer and wine delivered to a customer's home", said Stacy Lynn Bourgeois, Pizza Hut's director of brand marketing. When you order a greasy Pizza Hut pie, you will be able to order six packs of Anheuser-Busch beers for $10.99 apiece.

On Tuesday, the pizza chain said it was starting delivery in Phoenix with the hopes of expanding throughout the United States from there, said Mia McWilliams of Zeno Group, a public relations and communications firm, in an email. It's still undecided whether or not Pizza Hut will deliver full bottles of wine or single servings.

Pizza Hut reported flat US same-store sales in the latest quarter, when Domino's Pizza's domestic units reported a rise of 8.4 percent. The pizza chain's parent company, Yum! However, Pizza Hut had not performed as while as sister chains KFC and Taco Bell, which has spurred this attempt of a turnaround by the company.

What's new is the delivery. By the end of the year, the company expects to hire 14,000 new drivers.

CNN Money found that two of its competitors - Papa John's and Domino's - appear to offer only water and soft drinks for delivery, according to their websites.

While beer and wine delivery pilot is beginning with just one downtown Phoenix location.

Pizza Hut now sells wine and beer at many in-store locations. All drivers who deliver the alcoholic beverages will be at least 21 years old and they'll also make sure to check the customer's identification for age as well. Customers also have to have their IDs ready at the door to take advantage of delivery.
