Hot off the ‘Pizza Hut’ Oven

My all-time-favorite pizza place never cease to amaze me. It impressed me how through these years it has lived to its mantra, “Makin it Great!”

I grew up a pizza lover… a Pizza Hut lover at that, and have witnessed how it has evolved (and still evolving) from the original red white and black, classic wood and bricks interiors, to a modern-ish resto style.

I’ve seen Pizza Hut split into several different restaurant formats; the family-style dine-in locations; the Bistro; store front delivery and carry-out locations; and hybrid locations that have carry-out, delivery, and dine-in options.

I’ve continually patronized its products, and have pin-pointed my favorites and less favorite (which was phased-out anyway) among its entrees. I’ve witnessed Pizza Hut experiment with new dishes, discontinuing the less successful ones.

Through the years, I’ve watched Pizza Hut grow and evolve, still, keeping the same pizza goodness that I got accustomed to…That same trademark flavors that won my heart and the hearts of many pizza lovers. 

Admittedly, I have frequented a few custom-built pizza parlors and, being a wanna-be-baker, have as well personally tried a couple of times to simulate Pizza Hut recipe which resulted to some really delish stuffed-crust pizza, but still I can say, nothing comes close to the real thing!

Kidding aside, between trying to raise a good dough, hand-tossing it in the air (like i just don’t care) and intricately loading it with all my fave stuff…. I think it’s still easier to dial nine, one, one, one, one, one, one! Or better yet head on to the nearest “Red Roof” branch. You see that red hat like thing on top of the Pizza Hut logo? It’s not a hat, okay, it’s a red roof.

Pizza Hut Kia Theater is now open to serve you.

In its hope to continually “Make it Great!” Pizza Hut recently unveiled a new resto concept that is different from its traditional store type. Pizza Hut Kia Theater, located near Gateway Mall Araneta Center (in the former New Frontier theater now called Kia Theater), is a must-see, must-try resto, because of its expanded menu and a modern, slightly more upscale interior design.

“It is our 174th branch,” says Pizza Hut Area Manager, Nica Surete. “Instead of the traditional look, we opted to make this particular branch look more modern and upscale,” she adds.

Notably, though, only the look, taste, and feel, was leveled-up, the price remains the same, affordable and pretty much worth it.

“The menu is similar to a traditional Pizza Hut, except that new dishes were added, such as the stuffed Hungarian sausage, monster burger, pork steak barbecue, baby back ribs and chunky beef burrito to name a few,” Surete adds.

Take note, dear readers, that only this specific Pizza Hut Branch (at Kia Theater) offer a limited menu with many products not found at traditional Pizza Huts.

These are just some of the food offerings, get ready to…uhmmm…how should i say it ‘salivate’…

  1. I’ve been seeing a lot less of Pizza Hut restaurants lately. Those that I frequent have been reduced to just pizza deliveries. Can’t wait for the one that will open in BGC. From your photos, it definitely looks like something to watch out for. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Makin’ it great! Aliw ang bagong TV ad nila. I’d like to eat in their new restaurant/bistro. Unfortunately my preschooler is not fond of pizza. KJ! Thanks for sharing!
