The program runs October 1 through March 31 each year.
BOOK IT! is a reading incentive program created by Pizza Hut in 1984. We empower teachers and parents to motivate their students to read by providing Reading Award Certificates®, good for a free, one-topping Personal Pan Pizza® from Pizza Hut®. This program is free to schools and parents homeschooling their own children.

Awarded digital certificates will be sent to the email you used to enroll, and you may need to check your spam/junk folder to see if they are sent there. You also may choose to print them, show the certificate to the Pizza Hut team member on your phone/smart device, or place an online order using the digital codes. The digital codes can be found on the certificate or in the Reward area of your dashboard.
For homeschools, students are added at the time of enrollment. If you need to make adjustments to your student count or address information, please contact the BOOK IT! Team.
Each program year from October to March, teachers set monthly reading goals for the students in their class. Number of minutes, number of pages or number of books – they all work! Also, parents can read with kids not yet reading independently. When a student reaches their monthly reading goal, the teacher rewards the student with a Reading Award Certificate for a free, one-topping Personal Pan Pizza® from Pizza Hut®. Students may earn a total of 6 Reading Award Certificates each program year.
Students may redeem one Reading Award Certificate per month, and the certificate must be used to reward the student who earned it. When a child redeems their Reading Award Certificate with Pizza Hut, they are celebrated with a one-topping Personal Pan Pizza.
Place your order by phone or in the restaurant and let them know you have a BOOK IT! Certificate. Please note that one certificate per student per visit can be used, the certificate is for the student who earned it and is non-transferable and the student must be present to receive the pizza.
