The experience: Pizza Hut
The location: Zevenwacht Mall, Cape Town
The situation: A week and a half ago we were picking up someone at the mall and I was like, huh, there’s a Pizza Hut. We found out that they would be opening the following Tuesday and after a false start (the oven wouldn’t work or something?), they opened last Wednesday.
The test: The Triple threat – any two medium pizzas (we took the sweet chilli chicken feta and some meat thing with olives because that is what happens when you let the husband choose flavours) and a chocolate dessert pizza.
The analysis: So I know this series of posts is about trying out new things, but it is not going well. The pizzas were OK. The ratio of filling to base to sauce was good, there was minimal oil and the crust was fine. The taste? Meh. It just tasted OK. Certainly not worth “I’m bookmarking some calories especially for this”.
The chocolate pizza was the best out of the batch, but, and I can’t believe I’m going to say this, it had too much chocolate spread. We had to split it across 3 days. I should never have to do that with chocolate anything.
The verdict: Similar to my Dunkin’ Donuts verdict, this also isn’t our scene. We have pizza so rarely that if we do have it, we want to go all the way. By that, I mean go all the way to Stellenbosch because the Dominos there is the best.
