Of thin dough, filling, frying pan or deep plate. When it comes to pizza, everyone has a unique preference. You might love mushroom toppings or maybe olives. You might love mushroom toppings, or maybe olives are your choice.
But be that as it may, it's hard to resist a cheesy, fresh, hot pizza from the oven to lick your fingers. According to Pizza Hut, they initially wanted to make their pizzas thin and a little crunchy. However, after some market studies, they discovered that 40 percent of customers prefer a pizza with a thin center and a thicker dough. Do you prefer your pizza to be thin and crispy? Pizza Hut has everything you need, especially if the mix at hand isn't fine enough for your taste.
Even though hand-mixed dough is actually thinner than pan dough, it's still quite a bit of bread. This is probably why the restaurant introduced thin, crispy dough. In fact, according to Pizza Hut, thin dough is baked thinly so that “you can try more ingredients.” Less dough means I can eat the ingredients and savor every last bite. Instead of the typical bread-like texture of pizza with hand-mixed dough, this one comes with a biscuit-like dough that has just the right amount of crunch.
In addition to allowing you to try all your ingredients, thin dough could also be a slightly healthier option. Less dough means fewer calories, so you can eat a slice or two on your “cheat days” without feeling too guilty. I also like that the biscuit-type dough is quite dry and, frankly, not as greasy as the fried pan dough. Overall, if you like extra thin, crispy pizza, you'll probably love Pizza Hut's Thin Crust.
The Pizza Hut dough wasn't as full of cheese as the tiny air bubbles in the dough made me believe. Traditionally, handmade pizza was made by throwing the dough into the air to create air pockets in the dough. The story of stuffed pizza revolves around Nancy and Rocco, and their pizza restaurant, Nancy's Pizza, which became “the home of the original stuffed pizza”. Packed with fresh mushrooms (never canned), red onions, green peppers, Romani tomatoes, and black olives, it offers a fresh and healthy option for ingredients while still offering the sticky delight of cheese-filled dough (via Pizza Hut).
The first is new, the second has undergone some updates since it first came out on March 25, 1995 and is the only permanent stuffed pizza on the menu of a national pizza chain. Alternatively, the pepperoni cheese-filled dough option only adds 40 calories per slice (via Calorie King). As the name suggests, deep plate pizza, also known as Chicago-style pizza, also has a deep crust. The Pan Crust was the first type of dough offered by Pizza Hut when the restaurant opened its doors to the public in the 1950s.
This American and international restaurant chain is known for its “firsts”, such as the Pan Crust and Stuffed Crust pizzas, which other pizzerias have tried to reproduce. What's more surprising is that a slice of pepperoni-filled dough pizza has fewer calories than a typical Pizza Hut salad. Gluten-free dough is thin and has just the right amount of crunch, so you don't have to sacrifice flavor for nutrition. The available varieties of stuffed pizza are incredibly diverse, but having access to all the different versions depends largely on where you are in the world.
Before baking a typical stuffed dough pizza, pizza makers usually add tomato sauce over the top dough.
