Pizza Hut just released to the public their new “renovation plan” which includes laid-back uniforms, a swirling sauce logo instead of the traditional hut roof, the renaming of many old ingredients, and the introduction of enough new ingredients, crusts, drizzles, etc. to make possible a whopping two billion different individual pizza creations. I am all for choices, but this is ridiculous!
All 6,300 worldwide Pizza Hut locations will soon begin implementing the new massive makeover. New “artisan” pizzas, new peppers and meats from Italy, a pretzel crust, a diet pizza, six sauces, and honey sriracha (among other drizzles) will be on the menu. Olives will now be officially called “Mediterranean black olives,” ham will be referred to as “slow-cooked ham,” and cherry peppers will be specified as “Peruvian.”
Pizza Hut has always been a sort of family-oriented, affordable, and relatively simple place to eat. It appears that all that may be changing now. We can’t imagine that honey sriracha will come cheap nor that Mediterranean olives could possibly escape being pricier than just plain old olives- even if it is the same olive. However, we will have to wait and see on that- perhaps the new fancier Pizza Hut will indeed offer the same low prices.
Some of us have enough trouble as it is picking out what to order at pizza places. We ask ourselves, “Do I want green pepper and pepperoni or sausage and bacon?” The wait staff becomes a “waiting staff” as we hem and haw before finally making up our minds.
