Pizza Hut Believes It’s “Re-Inventing The Stuffed Crust Experience” By Using 3 Kinds Of Cheese
Consumerist ^ | October 4, 2013

Posted on 10/05/2013 11:34:56 AM PDT by SMGFan

There’s only so much you can do with a pizza before it becomes something that doesn’t even resemble a pizza — there’s a fine line between novelty food and monstrosities like the cheeseburger crust creation. But things like sauce, crust and cheese are pretty safe bets, so far as widespread appeal goes, which is perhaps why Pizza Hut is tripling down on the dairy and introducing a 3-Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza.

Giordano’s, a regional Chicago based stuffed pizza chain, has included FIVE types of cheese from its founding 30 some-odd years ago. The great Modern Apizza of New Haven, CT was founded in the late 30’s, and primarily sold pizzas made with good quality American cheese (the real stuff). That was why it was called Modern.

While Pizza Hut uses real cheese, when I worked there in the early 80’s, it was pre-diced Lucille’s, nothing special.

Great pizza includes great moxxerella, because that’s the best cheese for pizza. Next we’ll hear about someone “improving” lasagna by replacing the ricotta with Monterrey Jack.

Yeah, they are a bit silly.

That said for the past few weeks they’ve been running a special something like a one topping pizza for <$7. Mrs p6 and I tried it and it was surprisingly good!

Not like it was 20 years ago but good enough that we’ve had it several times when we didn’t want to cook.

Bonus: not as salty as it was decades ago.

Nope. Just his ad for the NYSlimes (Years ago, pre-FL).

As for an appealing variation on pizza, I did stop on a Chuck Hughes show that featured Montreal eateries.

To whit, a Montreal-style bagel dough for the crust, covered with a mustard sauce, then a variety of smoked and cured meats, topped by dollops of mozzarella.

I worked at Pizza Hut in Kansas City back in the late 70s. Back then we had the old style gas ovens, and made the dough in house, two different recipes, one for the regular pizza, another for the pan pizza, which was something new. Fresh veggies, we also made the sauce in house as well. They weren't stingy with the toppings, either. And the "large" pizzas were LARGE, not like the 14" "large" pizzas they sell today. I think the large was 18" back then, but it could have been larger.

We recently ordered a large mushroom pizza, and I don't think there were more than 2 slices of mushroom per slice. Still, the pizza tasted pretty good though.

Chain store pizza and frozen pizza are disgusting.

There’s a bar/restaurant around the corner with a wood fired oven — they’ll put anything/everything on a large for under $16. If I don’t feel like that, I go to the ubiquitous corner pizza joint (although our here in the suburbs, they aren’t actually on corners) where they don’t use pre-prepared sausage turds.

Yup that’s what mrs p6 and I remember. They also used to keep jars of hot pepper flakes on the tables but I don’t recall them being...hot.

That’s probaby just me though.

I’ve had a hard time finding my favorite pizza to my liking in my area.

Pizza Hut actually comes the closest.

Hand-Tossed, onion, green pepper and anchovie.

I seldom have to worry about sharing it with anyone else.

I'm not a big fan of Pizza Hut, but the now-ex and I vacationed in NZ, and Pizza Hut was a welcome break from the local fare.

(That's not to say it was boring - the richest lobster I ever ate was on the South Island - but they do like their starches).

One time my pizza was a little tiny bit burned on top... it was probably the best tasting pizza I had in a while....

Two nights ago, we waited 3 hours before our wings and salad was delivered. They still managed to forget the croutons, crackers and gave us the wrong dressing....

Although we did get a $21 credit for our trouble

“That said for the past few weeks they’ve been running a special ...”

I have their website saved to my phone and order a couple of large pies online every couple of weeks or so. Always ready for pickup in 15-20 minutes, and they’re just up the road.

Hate to say this but it’s just “easy as pie” to do, and the pizza is very good. And, there’s usually a good deal going. While the toppings are occasionally sparse, what we get for the money is very reasonable.

I found Korean pizza commercials, they will put crab and shrimp on as toppings and who knows what else.

I kind of wish they would start opening Mr. Pizza franchises in Texas just because of the commercials. Seriously, you don’t need to understand what they are saying, it’s just....

DH (Italian) says it ain’t pizza unless it’s been cooked in a 1500 degree coal-fired oven.

Anchovies and “real” (not the wimpy low-fat version) mozzarella preferred

Crust so crisp it cuts your mouth up.

Totally agree. Right up the road, order and pick up in a few minutes.
Competition has made them better.

One thing I will add...admit to...I grew up with Chef Boy-R-Dee and loved it! Still one of the best as far as I am concerned.

Mrs p6 and I, and our kids and their families, still enjoy the fun of making our own Chef-Boy-R-Dee pizza as well as the canned goods!

The last one-topping coupon special I got from Pizza Hut featured very wide spaces between the very thin pepperoni slices. I should try one NOT a coupon special.

“Shrimp Nude”?

Put Mr. Pizza’s next to “Gentlemen’s Clubs” for the synergy?

I have heard Pizza Hut pizza is so vile, I’ve avoided it my whole life. I can’t see any reason to change now.

Pizza & Brew on Central Ave in Yonkers, NY used to have shrimp as a pizza topping. It was really quite good, though I preferred their meatball & fresh garlic pies.

“Hand-Tossed, onion, green pepper and anchovie.”

So you’re the one. Every time I see anchovies listed I wonder who would order anchovies on a pizza.

I can eat pizza about twice a year. My first and last bite at the same sitting. I hate pizza.

It is, thanks for asking. You can also get ready-to-bake cookie dough at the grocery store, press it flat on a pizza pan, and bake it into your giant cookies.

Glad to hear that all is well! Oh yes, I forgot about the store cookie dough. Have a peaceful Sunday!
