Why Is This Wikipedia Section on Pizza Hut’s Products So Mesmerizing?

December 5, 2010

ok…my partner in this blog, K. Lee, or if you’re more inclined, Kate L., thought this post was reading a little dry at best, or, at worst, like a sponsored ad for “The Hut.” Well, allow me to preface this direct Wikipedia excerpt with this statement:

 

I hate Pizza Hut. I think all chain pizza places are total bullshit. Spend the same amount of money on a pizza that wasn’t shipped to you on a truck, pre-made, then cooked on some sort of conveyer device that is both/either stoner-proof or illiterate-proof.

Further, I found the following excerpt humorous because it takes the most pedestrian of indulgences (bread, sauce, and cheese) and turns the result into the most frankensteinian of end results. These people lend no credit to the American public and think they can fool them by taking the same 3 ingredients and combining them in a not-at-all ingenious way to think they’re eating something that isn’t absolute shit.

Finally, I think my track record of disdain for Big Pizza is clear, as this article evidences. I didn’t even know Kate then. Sometimes I feel like I don’t even know her now, but that’s an entry for my diary, not the blog.

Pizza Hut – Products

Pizza Hut in Santiago, Chile.

Pizza Hut sells “Stuffed Crust” pizza, with the outermost edge wrapped around a coil of mozzarella cheese; “Hand-Tossed,” more like traditionalpizzeria crusts; “Thin ‘N Crispy”, a thin, crispy dough which was Pizza Hut’s original style; “Dippin’ Strips pizza”, a pizza cut into small strips that can be dipped into a number of sauces; and “The Edge pizza,” where the toppings nearly reach to the edge of the pizza. There was also formerly a crust that was not as thick as Pizza Hut’s pan pizza, and not as thin as its thin crust. This crust was used on the Full House XL pizza and discontinued in 2007.[9]

Pizza Hut experiments with new products frequently, with less successful ones being discontinued. These include the initially popular two-foot by one-foot square cut pizza Bigfoot, the 16″ Big New Yorker, made with a sweet sauce, the Chicago Dish Pizza and Sicilian pizza, the latter also offered in 2006 as Lasagna Pizza. Other products Pizza Hut has offered are the “P’zone”, Pizza Hut’s version of the calzone; the Cheesy Bites pizza, similar to the Stuffed Crust pizza except the crust has been divided into 28 bite-sized pieces that can be pulled apart; and the Insider pizza, where a layer of cheese is in between two layers of dough. Another limited time offer was a Double Deep pizza with double the toppings and 50% more cheese, with the crust wrapped over the top to hold in all the toppings. In 1985 Pizza Hut introduced the Priazzo,[10] a two-crusted Italian pie that resembled a deep-dish pizza. Varieties included Priazzo Milano, a blend of Italian sausage, pepperoni, beef, pork fillings, a hint of bacon, mozzarella and cheddar cheese; Priazzo Florentine, a light blend of five cheeses with ham and a touch of spinach, and Priazzo Roma, stuffed with pepperoni, mushrooms, Italian sausage, pork filling, onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheese. The double-crusted pie was topped with a layer of tomato sauce and melted cheese. The Priazzo was introduced by a $15 million advertising campaign, but proved too labor-intensive and was removed from the menu several years later.

Depending on the individual restaurant size, Pizza Huts also may offer pasta dinners such as spaghetti andCavatini – a mixture of Cavatelli (shells), Rotini (spirals), and Rotelle (wheels).

Pizza Hut Bistro concept location located in Indianapolis.

A new, upscale concept was unveiled in 2004, called Pizza Hut Italian Bistro. Unveiled at fifty locations nationwide, the Bistro is similar to a traditional Pizza Hut, except that new, Italian themed dishes are offered, such as pennepasta, chicken pomodoro, toasted sandwiches and other foods.[11] Instead of black, white, and red, Bistro locations feature a burgundy and tan motif.[12]Pizza Hut Bistros still serve the chain’s traditional pizzas and sides as well. In some cases, Pizza Hut has replaced a “Red Roof” location with the new concept.

A new version of Pizza Hut pizza, named Pizza Mia which is lightly topped, was introduced in 2007. The product is aimed at the cost sensitive consumer segment and is priced similarly to theDomino’s 555 deal, where each pizza is priced at five dollars if purchased in bulk of three or more. In comparison, a Pizza Hut medium sized, hand-tossed pepperoni pizza is internationally priced at $10.24 (Dallas, Texas 1/1/2009). The Pizza Mia comes in only one size (medium) and extra toppings range from $1.25 to $1.49. One slice of Pizza Hut pepperoni Pizza Mia weighs 83 grams, while one slice of Pizza Hut pepperoni hand-tossed pizza weighs 96 grams.[13]

Pizza Hut on May 9, 2008, created and sold in SeattleDenver, and Dallas, “The Natural”, a new all-natural multi-grain crust sweetened with honey, a red sauce of organic tomatoes and topped all-natural cheese (or with all-natural chicken sausage and roasted red peppers). A medium Natural pizza with one topping sold for $9.99. This was discontinued on October 27, 2009 in the Dallas market.[14] It has since launched a nationwide advertising campaign. Also in 2008, Pizza Hut created their biggest pizza ever, the Panormous Pizza. Pizza Hut introduced the Big Eat Tiny Price Menu on June 21, 2009. It features new Pizza Rolls, the P’Zone Pizza, new Personal Panormous Pizza, and the Pizza Mia Pizza, each item starting at $5.00 or $5.99.

Pizza Hut introduced stuffed pan pizza on August 23, 2009 with $10.99 for one toppings and specialty for $13.99. Unlike regular stuffed crust cheese is not inside the crust, just pressed into the pan crust. Pizza Hut introduced the Big Italy, a pizza that is almost two feet long for $12.00, on August 22, 2010.

Pizza Hut recently (2010) came under fire when its supplier of palm oil, Sinar Mas, was exposed to be illegally slashing and burning the Paradise Forests of Indonesia to plant palm oil plantations.[15] This act is driving native people off their land and forcing orangutans and Sumatran tigers to the brink of extinction.

when i think pizza, i think...Kurt Vonnegut

i can only imagine the relevance to this image is that you can guarantee that neither Paulina Porizkova nor Ric Okasik (sp?) are eating any of that shit

FIRE THE FOOD STYLIST...S.T.A.T

I DON’T THINK ANY OF THOSE ARE THAT WEIRD, AS I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT VONNEGUT WROTE SEVERAL NOVELLAS ABOUT HIS AFFINITY FOR WING STOP. ALSO, THIS POOR GUY IS NOW IN THE INTERNET ETHER FOREVER, WITH HIS YEARBOOK PHOTO. WHY IS HE ON THE LIST? CAUSE HE LISTED HIS FAVORITE FOOD AS “PIZZA HUT STUFFED CRUST PEPPERONI”.

IT ALSO LISTS HIS NAME: RYAN SCHNEIDER. I PRESENT TO THE WORLD THE BIGGEST STUFFED CRUST FAN IN THE WORLD….LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…RYAN

I THINK IF I COULD HAVE PICKED A FAVORITE FOOD FOR MY SENIOR PAGE, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DUCK CONFIT ON TOP OF TRUFFLED CAULIFLOWER PUREE INFUSED WITH LAVENDER AIR. JUST LIKE MY FOSTER MOM, ALICE WATERS, USED TO MAKE.

      Almost every state has a rich tradition of the people that lived there before we kicked them out. It’s just that most states don’t pimp it so hard cause they have other more interesting stuff going on, like geography and interesting people. The most interesting people from Oklahoma are: Hanson, Oral Roberts, and Will Rogers.

      Gross.
