Alright, it might not be quite big enough for the next episode of ‘Britain’s Biggest’ but it’s still pretty flipping massive. Today I took a trip to Pollini’s Pizza Slice in Halifax, to see just how big Yorkshire’s biggest pizza is. And to see if I could eat it all of course.
Tomato pie is a beloved specialty of Philadelphia. It resembles pizza, though Philadelphians know it to be different. In the early 1900s, bread bakers would take leftover bread and top it with “gravy” (red sauce) and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese to save the dough from going to waste. The dish is ubiquitous in Philadelphia today, with many bakeries, like Sarcone’s Bakery in South Philly, serving it either hot from the oven or at room temperature. Insider’s Taryn Varricchio headed to Sarcone’s to learn why Philadelphians treasure tomato pie.
I generally don‘t post a lot video recipes inspired by Papa John’s television commercials, but that’s exactly what happened with this “Pizzadilla,” although not right away. At first viewing, I made fun it, and said something snarky like, “Wow, they finally figured out how to fold a pizza in half!” I was underwhelmed to say the least, but as you’ll see, it all worked out nicely.
MOD Pizza is a fast-casual pizza joint that’s taking the world by storm — and growing at a ridiculous pace. We decided to take a close look at what MOD is all about — from the company’s philosophy to its slew of topping options. This is the untold truth of MOD Pizza. In comparison to pizza giants like Pizza Hut and Domino’s, MOD is definitely the new kid on the block. The chain’s story began in Seattle, Washington in 2008. Founders Scott and Ally Svenson were inspired to open their first pizza joint in their hometown, but not because they felt the world really needed another pizza place. Speaking to Q13 FOX in 2016, Scott recalled something Ally told him right off the bat: The Svensons wanted to create a workplace where employees could truly thrive. As Ally explains it, Scott’s background was in investment banking. Ally formerly had a career in the publishing industry. They’re a truly unique pair. In 1995, the couple changed course and opened Seattle Coffee Company in London. They both left their day jobs to open the new business, and the leap of faith certainly paid off: The Svensons sold Seattle Coffee Company to Starbucks for close to $90 million in 1998. Ten years later, they moved back to Seattle, explored the pizza scene, and MOD Pizza was born. It’s not often that a company makes a concerted effort to hire people with criminal histories — but MOD Pizza isn’t your average company. Their hiring practices are truly unique. One of the reasons the Svensons wanted to open the restaurant was to offer a great place to work, and they’ve embraced a wide variety of employees with different types of backgrounds from the start. Keep watching the video to learn the untold truth of MOD pizza!
Slow cookers are wonderful for all kinds of soups and pastas, but this is one delicious recipe I would have never dreamed of.
Crock pot pizza is tested out by Average Betty’s Sara O’Donnell, and it turns out absolutely amazing. She goes for more of a traditional, thin crust pizza layered with cheese and pepperoni, and just wait until you see the results – this is definitely one recipe that the whole family will want to try.
It doubles as a fun activity for the kids, allowing them to help prepare the meal by sprinkling in the different toppings and watching it cook. A thicker crust will feed the whole family, but if you prefer a thin crust, that works just as well and will feed around 2 people.
The possibilities with this recipe are endless, so whether you love deep dish pizza, or something thin and crispy like hers, this recipe is super fun to try. It takes anywhere around 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the crust, so just allow enough time to experiment. However, just be prepared because when you smell that delicious pizza cooking for that long, the cravings only get worse by the time its done.
This recipe is one of the best we have tried and tasted. Combining taco’s with pizza in roll form is one of the best ideas every put forth in the cooking world. This recipe is one your family and friends will totally enjoy!
½ lb ground beef
1 can Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust
2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
3 tablespoons water
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
Optional toppings: lettuce, tomato, sour cream, onion, and guacamole
Instructions – Makes 18 Taco Rolls
Preheat oven to 400 ° and lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium skillet, cook and brown beef until no longer pink. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water and cook for 2-3 minutes. Set aside and cool slightly before using.
Take pizza dough out of its package and unroll it onto a flat surface. Slightly roll or press the pizza dough out into a rectangle.
Add the taco meat evenly on top of the pizza dough. Sprinkle the cheese evenly on top.
Starting with the long edge of the pizza dough, roll dough tightly up into a roll. Using a serrated knife, make about 1-inch slices along the roll, making about 18 rolls.
Place rolls on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
A lot of people felt a certain sort of nostalgic pang when Pizza Hut announced they would close around 500 stores, starting in 2019. What happened to this iconic pizza chain, and do they have a chance of turning it around? This is the real reason Pizza Hut is disappearing across the country.
One of the biggest problems Pizza Hut faces isn’t the pizza. It’s the hut.
Pizza is as popular as ever, but dining habits are changing, with more and more people opting for take-out or delivery as opposed to dining out. That’s especially true when it comes to pizza, which helps explain why, according to Restaurant Business, only about 10 percent of Pizza Hut’s sales come from dine-in customers.
Still, prior to the initial round of store closings, more than half of Pizza Hut locations were still primarily dine-in ventures, meaning they were paying waitstaff who didn’t have customers to wait on.
In 2018, Pizza Hut CFO David Gibbs addressed the problem on an earnings call, saying
“The challenge Pizza Hut faces is that it has a large dine-in business. The drag dine-in is having on reported same-store sales masks the relative health of delivery and carryout. […] Dine-in is waning in relevance.”
There is some good news, though. When Pizza Hut announced their intention to close roughly 500 locations, Gibbs suggested that many of those were dine-in venues that would be replaced by new express locations better suited to serving the nation’s current need for pizza on the go.
The Pizza Hut Express format is already out there, with quick-serve counters in locations like the Miami International Airport. Pizza Hut Singapore describes the Pizza Hut Express concept as
“…a fast service counter concept specially designed to serve the busy professionals, students and all who … are looking for a filling meal while on the move.”
Dozens have already opened across the UK as well, and Big Hospitality says owner/operators report huge successes with them. Featuring a smaller menu than traditional Pizza Huts, including personal sized pizzas, these Express franchises fit in locations such as stadiums and service stations where a full-sized Pizza Hut wouldn’t, and they’re designed to be able to have an order out in between 90 and 120 seconds.
Hey, when it comes to envisioning the future of pizza, the company has had worse ideas.
