    Menu Description: “Grilled chicken breast strips and rotini pasta oven baked in a creamy Alfredo sauce with a layer of melted cheese.”

    Pizza Hut announced its new pasta dishes in 2008 with an email campaign claiming the company was changing its name to “Pasta Hut.” The date was April 1st, and the blast was an April Fool’s publicity stunt that helped make the chain’s new Tuscani pastas one of the company’s most popular new product launches. Each of the three varieties of pasta are covered with cheese and baked until light brown on top. The Creamy Chicken Alfredo Pasta garnered the most hacking requests here, all pleading to know how to duplicate the delicious alfredo sauce. I burned through several pounds of pasta and many quarts of cream, but finally landed on this top secret formula. Now make this delicious dish in your own kitchen. No foolin'.

    Menu Description: "We start with a thin layer of crust, then we lay down down a luscious layer of our six-cheese blend and seal it in with another thin layer of crust. We pile on your favorite Pizza Hut toppings, more cheese and bake it to gooey perfection."

    You might be as surprised as I was to learn that Pizza Hut uses 2.5 percent of all the milk produced in the U.S. every year for the cheese used on the pizzas. We're talking about a lot of pizzas here—1.3 million served every day. The cheese production alone requires a herd of 250,000 dairy cows producing at full capacity 365 days a year.

    Certainly even more overworked cows had to be recruited to produce the additional cheese needed for this gooey new creation. This special pizza is made with two crispy cracker-like crusts that have a hidden layer of six cheeses cooked between them. Because this pizza requires two crusts, Pizza Hut created a dough that does not rise as much as the dough used in their other pizzas. This version has been adapted from a classic recipe for soda crackers. The finished product is the perfect pizza for people who think cheese is good, and more cheese is even better.

    Pizza Hut added buffalo wings to the chain’s menu in 1995, and as the popularity of wings began to grow Yum! Brands (the parent company of Pizza Hut) created WingStreet in 2003 offering 8 different sauces on wings cooked 3 different ways. The WingStreet stores are almost always co-located in Pizza Hut stores so that you can get 7, 14, or 22 wings delivered right to your door along with your pizza. The chain offers several flavors of wings to choose from, but the most popular are always the traditional bone-in unbreaded wings with the spicy buffalo sauce that comes in either burnin’ hot, medium, or mild heat. The chain's medium sauce was named the “Best Medium Traditional Wing Sauce” in 2006, 2008, and 2009 at the National Buffalo Wing Festival held in Buffalo, New York every fall. You can use butter here instead of margarine but if you want the closest copy of the award-winning WingStreet originals, margarine is the way to go. Also, be sure the wings you use are small—there should be about 14 wings in 1½ pounds.

    According to my sources, the dough for the pan pizza from pizza hut is made fresh in each store every day, and when the day’s over any leftovers are tossed out. The secret to perfect pan pizza is pressing the dough into a well-oiled pan (Pizza Hut uses soybean oil), then the pan is covered and the dough rises in a heated cabinet for 45 to 60 minutes. When the dough is topped, the edge is sprayed with a butter-flavored “food release” and the pie is baked at 500 degrees F. until perfectly browned on top. You can use a 9-inch, 12-inch, or 15-inch deep dish pizza pan or cake pan for this recipe, and you’ll want to preheat your oven with a pizza stone in it to simulate the type of oven used at the chain. The hot ceramic surface of the pizza stone will cause the oil in the pan to cook the bottom of the dough so that it’s brown and crispy like an authentic pan pizza crust should be. I tried making the dough with cake flour, all-purpose flour, superfine “00” flour, bread flour and many combinations of these different flours which all contain varying amounts of gluten. I even tried rising the dough slowly in the refrigerator for various lengths of time as long as up to four days. But after a month of testing and about 30 pan pizzas later, I found the best dough to be straight bread flour, and to let the dough rise at room temperature. I did find that if you let the dough rest for at least 4 hours before the final rise in the pizza pan the glutens continue to toughen, and you will get the best texture with the perfect chewy bite to it. After about 9 hours though, the dough is pretty much finished and it’s time to close up shop.

    Menu Description: "This unique thinner crust has a ring of cheese baked into the edge so you get cheese in the very last bite of every slice."

    Brothers Dan and Frank Carney have their dear old mom to thank for helping them to become founders of the world's largest pizza chain. It was in 1958 that a family friend approached the two brothers with the idea of opening a pizza parlor, and it was the brothers' mom who lent them the $600 it took to purchase some second-hand equipment and to rent a small building. There, in the Carneys' hometown of Wichita, Kansas, the first Pizza Hut opened its doors. By 1966, there were 145 Pizza Hut restaurants doing a booming business around the country with the help of the promotional musical jingle. "Putt-Putt to Pizza Hut." Today the chain is made up of more than 10,000 restaurants, delivery-carry out units, and kiosks in all 50 states and 82 foreign countries.

    Introduced in 1995, the Stuffed Crust Pizza, which includes sticks of mozzarella string cheese loaded into the dough before baking, increased business at Pizza Hut by 37 percent. Because the outer crust is filled with cheese, the chain designed a special dough formula that does not rise as high as the original. It's best to prepare your Top Secret Recipesversion of this delicious dough a day before you plan to cook your pizza so that the dough can rest to develop crust with a chewy bite just like the original.
