I find pizza hut pizza's very yummy. But expensive. How can i make my own on the cheap so it tastes just the same.

Ive noticed they dont use a whole lot of tomato sauce or cheese, which results in a nicer pizza and less cheese on face burning incidents.

So teach me!

Well to resolve this issue can i recommend to use a knife and fork? When I eat pizza by hand, I always burn the top of my mouth just behind my two front teeth, where the pizza is held before a piece is bitten off. In conclusion: its a bad way to eat pizza

Buy pizza base.

Put tomato puree on base.

Throw on cheese and other ingredients.

And now the special secret ingredient :

Post your phone number, and we'll all call you at five minute intervals requesting pizzas for you to assemble and then cook in a tedious minimum wage assembly line type scenario. I reckon you'll get pretty good at it after that.

I think it must just be the exact ingredients they use (type of cheese and base etc). My brother worked there putting the cheese on for a while (they basically pass them round the kitchen each adding different ingredients), and it's not a special technique or anything. I personally think a lot of the Pizza Hut taste comes from the base, and although I'll have to check I believe he said they come ready made froma Pizza Hut factory somewhere.

the curst is very crispy because they use a lot of oil in it, the cheese is a mix of process mozzarella and processed cheaddar, and the "meat is 50% soya.

good look with it though ! :(

The bases are definately ready-made. They get them frozen, and there is a lot of oil, as Poppa says.

That's exactly what I saw.

We were waiting for our take away order and the guy behind the counter told us it was nearly ready. He then turned round and picked up this white labelled can (no noticeable text) and began to spray away all over the tops of our pizzas.
I said, "hey mate, what you up to there"
"Oh, just spraying the grease on to the pizzas."
"What? grease, why?"
"um, to make them look moist"
"Well, Don't you think you should stop, the one think I don't like about pizza is a greasy moist look"
"I've done it now"
"great..."

i do think, however, without the grease it would probably look old and dry

I think a lot of the trick to making pizzas, which you can't duplicate at home, is a very hot oven, much hotter than most domestice cookers.

You can buy spray-on grease in supermarkets if you're a fan of the lard look.

Hmm, so its just basic cheeses and im guessing some sort of tomato paste. the base does puzzel me as its crunchy only on the very top of it, all the middle is like toasted bread but softer. Im gona have to work on this i think one day. And Mr Pogo, if your bro can give me any advice on how they make it, that'd be great!

if this were true though, then why do supermarket pizzas asked to be cooked at 190 degrees, rather than 230, which most ovens can reach?

Surely Pizza hut pizzas dont count as 'proper' pizzas?
