Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut is finally (back) in South Africa.. yeay… I love the fact that many international food chains are recently opening in Cape Town. Meaning that I feel “more at home” as many international chains have been operating in Indonesia since my childhood. For a person who is not a fan of pizza, I eat and like Pizza Hut firstly, for the fact that it’s reminding me of one of my childhood’s fave. Secondly, yep the pizza is delish.

Pizza Hut is an an American Italian food chain and franchise. Therefore their pizza is a thick base. For South Africans whom used to eat thin based pizza, don’t worry, Pizza Hut gives you an option of thin or thick base. Continue reading Pizza Hut
