Pep up your pizza

Pizza Hut now comes a step closer home, in Secunderabad


A PIZZA is a great pizza when it has a fully cooked base with golden brown edges that tastes mildly yeasty and just a little sweet, without a single blister. At Pizza Hut, one is always assured of a great-tasting pizza that has all these properties and more.

The Mama Mia boys are again at it, making pizzas - only this time round they are in Secunderabad (KPR House, S P Road) at Pizza Hut's new 82-seater restaurant (Ph: 27891112/13). Nifty dιcor - much the same as other stores, the new outlet dishes out the same line-up of pizzas and pastas, which have a quality - that puts a `yum' on every customer's face.

According to the restaurant general manager, Sajan Thomas, uniformity is maintained across the 12,500 Pizza Hut outlets in the world so that the taste of a Pizza in the U.S is same as in Hyderabad or elsewhere.

"The menu too is essentially the same, varying only in terms of a few items that are included for better brand visibility in the local market," he says.

Like the `Chettinad' range in Hyderabad, or the `Tandoor' variety of pan pizzas that have become a huge hit. Now there is Murg Mazedaar, Paneer Punjabi and Veggie Tama Tam among other Pan Hindustani pizzas. Born in Naples as a poor man's dish and later baptised as an American delicacy, perhaps the pizza has never seen more transformation on its face than in India.

For all ye pizza lovers, there's a piece of yummy news. "More stores will come up shortly in Hyderabad, and may be a few more flavours too," says Thomas. "Our trade area is about 26.9 kilometres around Secunderabad and we have been receiving requests for more stores so that the drive time is reduced."

Now get your pizzas delivered at home, hotter than before. Sizzling hot pizzas at the doorstep is a promise that Pizza Hut makes with the recent launch of heated pouches - `Hot Packs', a patented technology from the chain. So one can get the same taste at home as while consuming it at any of the store.

And need it be mentioned that a pizza tastes best when eaten with hand. So feel at home, away with those forks and knives.
