Yeah, they are only the biggest pizza chain on the planet. Totally amazing they could afford this…


duderguy91 t1_ixgec7t wrote

That is baffling to me. I haven’t had Pizza Hut since I was a kid. My unrefined palate back then could still taste the 7 quarts of month old oil dripping off of the crust lol.


panstuckyo t1_ixgf81t wrote

Dude, it’s just dough, pizza sauce, and some cheese. Its okay. It’s not the blueprints to a nuclear submarine.


duderguy91 t1_ixgfbot wrote

I mean there’s bad pizza and good pizza. It baffles me that bad pizza is the foundation of the “biggest pizza chain on the planet.” Not exactly groundbreaking to be surprised by that lol.


turtleman777 t1_ixgttxf wrote

You seem very easily baffled. Prepare to have your mind blown: The biggest burger chain on the planet also serves "bad burgers". Same for every single other type of food.

You don't get to be a multinational corporation making billions a year by making high quality food that no one can afford. You do it by selling a billion cheap meals. Quantity over quality

Just like how bud light is super popular yet one of the worst ones out there.

Fair point, just was never a popular option in my area and is largely irrelevant where I’m from. Never knew it was the second biggest pizza chain until today.

Genuinely do find it disgusting but also poking fun.


ReconstructedPickle t1_ixgii3v wrote

Pizza Hut is just meh to me, granted its been over five years since I’ve had it. You know what chain has always been awful though? Dominos.


duderguy91 t1_ixgj5jj wrote

Yeah if I’m getting cheap pizza I’ll just get Little Caesar’s since it all tastes similar. If I’m getting decent pizza I’ll just get the local place down the road. Nice little family restaurant that makes a really good pizza.


ReconstructedPickle t1_ixgkqtg wrote

Oh lord I haven’t had little Caesar’s in ages… The mere thought of their pizza is enough to give me acid reflux lol.

100% man, any local food joint is better than a chain.


duderguy91 t1_ixgkt0t wrote

Same lol, but at least the pain only costs $5 lol!


CeleryCool24 t1_ixgj2j9 wrote

You’ve just been conditioned to think it’s bad. It’s ok, a lot of people fall for it


GoldenCelestial t1_ixgmmub wrote

The only one conditioning me to think it's pizza hut...because it's D tier garbage pizza.


duderguy91 t1_ixgj8jb wrote

Or it was just horrendous pizza when I had it last lol. It’s always been notoriously greasy. Like they deep fried the crust.


Mizonel t1_ixh7ooc wrote

Greasy food in the land of the fat people. How's that hard to believe.


Scro86 t1_ixhxlwy wrote

Was it pizza by Alfredo or Alfredo’s pizza kitchen?


gimme20regular_cash t1_ixhz9hj wrote

I see the downvotes but I hear you. For me, living in an area of the US known for good real pizza, these big pizza chains notoriously don’t do great. I do know that this is NOT the case in parts of the country where good pizza isn’t a thing


duderguy91 t1_ixhzpxy wrote

What’s funny is I live in a pretty lame area. I don’t like in NYC or anything lol. Apparently Pizza Hut is a very touchy subject for people.


gimme20regular_cash t1_ixi6njl wrote

NJ/NYC metro area here. I find people order from these big chains mostly out of convenience (late at night or they had a coupon to use up). Otherwise the mom and pop joints dominate the area. I only realized the big chains are popular when I left the area


TypicalJeepDriver t1_ixgjshe wrote

I feel like me and all my friends used to ONLY get Pizza Hut and now I can’t think of the last time I saw anyone eat it. Something about their crust gives me heartburn and it’s only theirs.


cheeztoshobo t1_ixgl3bs wrote

I used to love the crust as a kid. To be fair, I always liked greasy food. Not so much now when there's better pizza.

Though I think Pizza Hut did their buy one get one pizza that got people hooked on their franchise, that could be why they used to sell tons.


duderguy91 t1_ixgjy9s wrote

I had a buddy that was a delivery driver for them when I was in college. He would bring home those circles of slop and I could just SMELL the grease lol. Never needed to taste it again to remember what I tasted years before.


SuddenSeasons t1_ixhgdmy wrote

My best friends roommate worked there and when she'd come home at 1230am with leftovers and we were drinking since 730 we did not care. Truly an incredible arrangement.


godwalking t1_ixibas5 wrote

canadian here, so mileage may vary.


Last time i had pizza hut was on my birthday, i believe 19th. could be 18th, not sure. It cost like 70$, and we got a medium pizza, 10 ish chicken wings and a VERY small serving of fries.

That was almost 15 years ago. I could order the same meal for cheaper today still, from most places. u/salvidrim still think you wasted your cash on that.


Salvidrim t1_ixicuyn wrote

I don't remember ever getting wings and fries from PH, so I'll trust your memory on that, however that 70$ price tag sounds insane, I'm not sure that's really accurate lol. But it's true that back then I wasted my cash on kind of anything, I didn't know any better about anything after never having to purchase anything for myself, and it's all such a dark blur that I don't remember enjoying... well, anything tbh.

At my previous apartment there was no PH in range so my pizza needs had to be fulfilled by Domino's, but ever since a Pizza Hut opened near to me in late 2019 I have literally ordered over a hundred times. Not a single month goes by without an order, and sometimes up to twice a week. Meat Lover's Stuffed Crust is absolute top-tier, and usually 40$ or lower for two pizzas, with BOGO or 5$-5$-5$ deals (on top of reward freebies).


godwalking t1_ixii9rb wrote

We got wings because it was my birthday and that's what i wanted. you threw money around.

But the pizza had cheese crust and you put like 2 extras on it, and i think you ordered a 2l of coke, which by itself was like 5$ instead of walking to the literal kitchen in my house to get a coke there.

The insanity scared me.


Salvidrim t1_ixij66u wrote

Yeah that all sounds totally accurate tbh. I look back on these dark monthy at 18yo where I just blew through thousands of dollars of inheritance by spending on basically nothing of value, until a few months later I had to get onto welfare assistance. :(

Now at least I spend on restaurants because I can afford it, I've never been this financially comfortable. I just dropped a K on a PS5 and it barely creased my budget whatsoever.


Vannilazero t1_ixhp6po wrote

Don’t know why your being downvoted, all massive chain pizza places are greasy and in my opinion not a good representation of pizza in general.

MapleSyrupFacts t1_ixo01mv wrote

I kind of want pizza now after all this. Now to decide how greasy I want it.

This was a great ad.

Acquire that pizza friend.

Also hit me with a MapleSyrupFact on the way out.

Much appreciated. God speed and happy thanksgiving!

1 person hasn’t eaten Pizza Hut since they were a child. Causes global company collapse. More at 7.
