Hell Pizza Reading Challenge

Tell us about the library books you read and earn a free pizza!

Hell Pizza wants to reward children who read books so they came up with a delicious idea - read for pizza.  This is how it works:

  • It's open to children in Years 1 to 8.
  • Ask for a pizza wheel at your local library.
  • Tell us about a library book you have read to receive a clip of your wheel.
  • Seven clips fills up the wheel and it will be stamped and signed by a librarian.
  • Take your completed wheel to any Hell's Pizza store and receive a free 333 Hell Pizza.
  • You can keep filling up wheels until we run out of them. Offer expires 3 December 2018.

Get your pizza wheel and start reading!
