Pizza the Hutt was a half-man, half-pizza inter-galactic gangster from an unknown planet whose body was entirely composed of dripping pizza toppings and cheese. He was attended to by a robotic representative by the name of Vinnie.
Pizza the Hutt, near his death, had been involved in dealings with a space pirate known as Lone Starr. When Lone Starr found he was in a 100,000 Space Buck debt to Pizza the Hutt he attempted to pay the debt but after later and later payments Pizza the Hutt raised the debt to 1,000,000 Space Bucks. Later, Pizza the Hutt then established video communication with Lone Starr, reminding him of their negotiations and his outstanding debt. He then told Lone that if the debt was not paid within one day then, "Pizza is gonna send out... for you!"
Shortly after this confrontation, Pizza the Hutt had been accidentally locked in his private limo and out of starvation, he ate himself. Ironically, by that time, Lone Starr had actually succeeded in raising the 1,000,000 Space Bucks.
