A couple of noteworthy news items in the world of fast food pizza today - first off, Papa John's has been slapped with a class action lawsuit for sending spammy text messages to its customers. The suit, worth a potential $250 million in damages, could be one of the largest suits ever filed under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Plaintiffs could receive over $500 per text message - talk about a lot of dough! Hiyo!

In Pizza Hut news, the chain, which is known for its outrageous concoctions like the crown crust pizza and cone crust pizza has just unleashed the "Overstuffed Pizza," essentially a pizza with another layer of crust over it that looks like a giant P'zone. There are two different sets of options for fillings (not toppings!) - the Italian Meat Trio, which contains pepperoni and two kinds of sausages - and the Supremo: Italian sausage, onions, bell peppers and mushrooms. The six-slice pies will set you back $12.99 and are available now nationwide. [Via HuffPo]
