Australia's First-Ever Pizza Hut Building Has Been Given The Wrecking Ball Treatment Twitter

A little piece of - or should we say pizza of - our childhoods has gone the way of most old buildings in Australia and has been bulldozed to make way for units.

The very first Pizza Hut building - which arrived in Belfield, Sydney, in 1970 - has been demolished and, according to Good Foodwill be replaced by 61 apartments.

While the building itself has actually housed a Korean restaurant in recent years, it had retained that distinctive Pizza Hut shape that just screams all-you-can-eat buffets and soft serve ice-cream.

For anyone keen to brush up on their fast food facts, that Pizza Hut actually preceded McDonald's first Aussie location, which opened in Yagoona in 1971.

KFC pipped both to the post, though; The Colonel staked his claim in the Australian deep-fried landscape in 1968 with a store in Guildford.
