Pizza Hut was planning to offer a big prize to anyone who asked either President Barack Obama or candidate Mitt Romney the question "Sausage or Pepperoni?" during Tuesday's Town Hall-style presidential debate. However, after the contest prompted backlash from the media, Pizza Hut is rethinking its offer.

Just Make a Mockery of the American Democratic System on Live TV" to give its take on the story, and Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert asked, "What could be more American than using our electoral process for product placement?"

Pizza Hut has said it will be moving the promotion online and randomly selecting a winner to receive free pizza for life.
