Everyone likes a good old pizza, well I'm guessing everyone likes a pizza, have yet to meet anyone who doesn't, I've even known a couple of people who don't even like cheese but still like a good pizza.
Pizza hut (as the name suggests) is a pizza restaurant, it was founded by brothers Dan and Frank Carney in Kansas America in 1958 and has since spread to most countries in the world. Pizza huts can be dine in restaurants, take aways or a combination of both. As I live in the UK I will be focussing on pizza huts located in the UK, but I imagine menus are very similar in different countries.
The take away menu (I mainly go for take aways) at your typical pizza hut consists mainly of pizzas, but they also offer pastas (in keeping with the italiany theme), a variety of side dishes and deserts. If you are eating in at the restaurant they also offer a salad buffet (comes free with any main dish or can be bought separately on its own), unlimited fizzy and diluting juice refills and at lunch time there is a buffet of pizza, pasta and salad. There is also a children's menu available if you eat in, this includes salad, pizza, pasta, juice and deserts.
The lunchtime buffet is a very reasonable price at around £6.99 for adults and £3.99 for kids and is available until 3pm. Unlimited drinks are available all day and are around £2, the unlimited refills is a great idea because sometimes drinks can be very expensive and if you are extra thirsty can get a bit pricey unless you just want tap water!
Take aways can be ordered by phone or online, you can pay by card or cash on delivery if your order is less than £20. I prefer to order online as you can take your time choosing what you want and see what is available. The pizza hut website is is well laid out and easy to use. You first need to enter your postcode so your nearest resteraunt can be located, then you chose if you want your order to be delivered or if you want to collect it, you can even chose a time later on in the day you want your order to be delivered (have never tried that one myself). I have found delivery to always be really really fast, usually less than 20mins and the order always arrives nice and hot :)
The choice of pizzas at pizza hut is immense, first you chose your pizza base, the choices include italian (thin base), pan (thick base, my favourite), stuffed crust (a ring of cheese at the edge of the crust), cheesy bites (similar to stuffed crust, individual cheesy bites you can pull of the edge) and the newest one, hot dog stuffed crust (yes, there is a ring of hotdogs baked round the edge of the base). Then you choose your size of pizza (small, medium or large, pan is only available in medium or large, the stuffed crust and cheesy bite pizzas are only available in large). Next is what you want as your toppings, there are a variety of pre-made topping selections such as the hawaiian (ham and pineapple), chicken supreme (chicken, mushrooms, mixed peppers and onions) or the meat machine (peperoni, ham, steak, spicy beef, spicy pork sausage and chicken). You can also choose to create your own with as many toppings as you like, as well as having either tomato, BBQ or no sauce or having double, less or no cheese, the combinations are endless!
There is also a very good selection of sides, dips and deserts. The sides include garlic bread, nachos, potato skins and BBQ chicken wings as well as many others. The dips you can get are BBQ, garlic and herb, sour cream and chive and sweet chilli (sour cream and chive is my fav and they are only 39p per dip or 3 for 99p). The deserts include warm cookie dough, cake slices, cheesecake slices and ice cream. You ca also get cans or 2 litre bottles of fizzy drink.
Pizza huts major downfall I have to say is the price, you can pay up to £18 for one pizza (I could probably get a weeks shop for that!) which is shocking, since it costs so much I only get a pizza hut very occasionally and always use a discount voucher which luckily are pretty easy to come by! I currently have vouchers for buy one get one pizza free, £10 if you spend £25 and 50% if you spend £35 (if you search online for pizza hut vouchers you can usually find one as well), still works out a bit on the pricey side if you compare it to bog standard supermarket pizzas, but they are very very nice pizzas, mmm!
So if you like pizzas and you fancy a treat you should definitely give them a go!
