The new frontier in the pizza chain wars: single slices.

Pizza Hut, one of the top-three U.S. pizza chains, entered the single-slice pizza arena Tuesday at its York, Neb., and Pawtucket, R.I., locations.

If customers like it, Pizza Hut will eventually expand to locations nationwide, said spokesman Doug Terfehr.

Terfehr called the move a step toward "the next generation of what the restaurant can be like when it comes to ordering pizza."

Pizza Hut rival Domino's already sells pizza by the slice at 50 of its nearly 5,000 locations nationwide.

    There was an EXCELLENT pizza joint up the street from my high school back in the late nineties. They sold pizza by the "slice", but it actually 1/4 of a pie – which essentially is 2 slices. It was about $3, I think. When lunch time came around you better have been out to your car in a hurry, cause they sold out fast to us hungry teen-mongruls.

    I still think they make the best pizza I've ever had.

    They're going to ruin a good thing because they're getting greedy. Stick with what works. Don't fix what ain't broke.
