Pizza Hut has better pizza for your money but my favorite is Jo Jo's Pizza Kitchen ( in California). Fresh homemade family recipe using FRESH ingredience and pasta dishes are excellent, worth every penny!
Pizza Hut Pan Pizza crust is the BEST I've ever found--it's buttery flavor makes all the other brands taste like the flour and water pastes we used to use in grade school.
However, while I was once a fan of the Pizza Hut buffet, a year ago the buffet was drastically reduced in size at my Pizza Hut. So now the buffet has only a few pizza choices, and is out of pizza more often than not. My wife and I used to go weekly, but no more.
On the other hand, my wife thinks that Pizza Hut creamy Italian dressing is the best that ever was. No matter how many store brands she's tried, and no matter how many recipes off the internet she's tried, none can hold a candle to Pizza Hut's Italian!
Ye I'm a big fan of the pizza hut buffet. The only problem is every time I have the buffet I eat far too much and end up feeling sick! Dominoes is quite expensive unless you have vouchers. If its buy one get one free its not too bad. I still prefer Pizza Hut though!
I would never eat at Pizza Hut due to fear of getting an immediate grease-induced heart attack. And for a long time their crust was pre-made (not fresh, hand tossed).
The only things Pizza Hut does right is the buffet and the stuffed crust pizza. Even then, though, the grease amounts are just deplorable.
And as far as price is concerned, it must be regional because the price difference between the two is comparable. Naturally, as footynut noted, the "Two for Tuesdays" deal is fantastic (maybe only available in the US?).
Domino's would be a last resort for me, and Pizza Hut I've only tried once. Based on that, I think I'd starve first before trying it again! The garlic taste lasted for 3 days... I remember complaining about it to everyone. I'm a local pizza place kind of guy 100%, especially greasy bar pizza. It might be just as bad as for you as Pizza Hut, but it's got heart. The one good thing I have to say about Dominos is that it always tastes the same, even overseas. There's never any surprise when you eat it.
To be fair I was picking Pizza hut as it was the only optioon but even then the bottom of their pizzas look like they've been sat in a deep fat fryer for half an hour.
There's plenty more authentic and better tasting pizzas from other places like in our town there is a takeaway that uses traditional stone bake ovens and their pizzas beat all, they're a bit pricey buit it's well known that it's totally worth it!
Also Mark's got the right idea,, making your own is so much more satisfying, as you can put exactly what you want on it, how many times have you ordered or bought one and had to spend a good few minutes painstakingly picking all the little onions/chillis/sweetcorn?
To me, Dominoes' crust is cardboard like; Pizza Hut wins, but I find that different locations are not consistant with excellence...when you find a good one, the pizza is fresh and the buffet and salad bar is delicious!
I think the original poster may have been from the UK, we don't have that chain over here.
We basically have dominoes which is more of a takeawy or delivery place, Pizza hut which is more of a sit down restaurant and a similar chain Pizza Express which tends to be in big cities/posh places.
I'm going to a great italian restaurant in the Northwest of the UK tonight for my dad's birthday, their pizzas are great, stone oven baked and authentic italian recipes, I think I'll go with that kind as my final answer
I don't like either. Papa Johns is good as far as being ranked among those. My favorite is a place down here called Cannoli Kitchen. Their pizza is amazing and they have all the other italian favorites (eggplant parm sub... amazing!) They deliver for free. I'm going to be so sad when I have to move!
The same in my town. There was a Pizza Hut sitting at the edge of town for quite a while - and then one day I looked, and the whole building had disappeared. Dominoes disappeared as well. On the other hand, a Papa Ginos has been in town for as long as I can remember, and a second one seems to be surviving as well. Between them and a couple of local pizza places, I don't think too many people were too interested in either Dominoes or Pizza Hut.
Used to go to a Godfather's Pizza in Okla that was really good; however, pizza is my least favorite foods, right above liver and onions. EEEEEEk ! but, raising 250 foster kids, we did have lots of pizza nights.
I'm in the "neither" category as well. I don't think I've ever eaten Domino's. For years there was some boycott we were supposed to do of Domino's. Can't remember why -- just remember we weren't supposed to frequent that company. Pizza Hut isn't my fave, either. Prefer Roundtable (although it's $$$). If I'm doing takout, Little Caesar's is my pick, as it has really cheap pizza, although the crust is awfully doughy. Overall, I vote for Papa Murphy's take and bake. Great value. And the "delite" thin crust pizzas are wonderful. Note to Mark: And the mushrooms are fresh, not canned/gray!
Well since yuo break it down like that now it dos sound good especially with ranch I LOVE dipping pizza in ranch dressing. Yes I am a weirdo get over it lmao. I think it's the cheese burger part that threw me off. I actually saw a piece of pizza in a cheese burger lmao
It's tastes best with a side of ranch dressing and er, if you're drunk
While in college, there was a pizzeria downtown that served pizza topped with cold shredded mozzarella...If you wanted a slice, you'd just say, "Cold cheese please" and the pizza guy knew. I tried it sober and damn near got sick...Seems like certain things just really are better when you're drunk.
Yep Costco is the greasiest pizza around I think...I still love eating it though. I know bad me bad me lmao. It does drip down the hands and rolls down your arms too. you leave fingerprints on your cup after taking a drink. lmao So bad and yet so darn good!
To be honest, neither! Big chains really suck, especially those two - at least the branches in my area. Grease, grease, and canned toppings. Ugh. I prefer to go with one of my local pizzerias which are usually right in the same price bracket. If I have to go franchise, I'll do Papa Murphy's take & bake (their DeLite crust is pretty sweet) or Papa John's.
We like homemade pizzas the best, but if we order out--it's Papa John's...but that's mainly because our son works there, and we get a 50% family discount, lol! But they do have really fresh ingredients, I agree.
I keep telling him, though, that we're ready for a change of pace, and it's time to get a job at Pizza Hut!
I spent 8 years working in a pizza place, and some of those recipes are still fresh in my brain. We made large specialty pizzas, and sold them mainly by the slice, to a very large lunch crowd of over 500 people in a...
