reminds me of when you could use /pizza to order while playing everquest.

More restaurants need to do this for more platforms, like Android!

Too bad Pizza Hut's pizza is foul. It doesn't so much have a greasy crust as it has crusty grease.

Apostrophe Hut will launch an app that electrocutes people who can't tell "let us" from "lets".

I remember the summer I worked for Pizza Glut.  The amount of oil we were required to put in the pan while the dough was proofing was nauseating.

/and people can rag on Domino's all they want, at least they made their breadsticks fresh; Pizza Hut's were in a frozen brick you had to separate with a chisel

Because reaching for the app on your phone would unnecessarily expend precious hundredths of a calorie?
 
2013-04-23 07:42:40 AM  
You know ...they already had this ...it's called a farking phone call

I just don't understand how most "apps" make things easier...
 
2013-04-23 07:47:05 AM  
I'm not terribly picky about pizza. But Pizza Hut does not make the grade. They went mechanized fast food about 15 years ago, and slid from so-so to terrible. It's the KFC of pizza.
 
2013-04-23 07:59:22 AM  
For Gold members only no doubt. Like everything available on Xbox live.

My guess?

1: They don't have to put down the controller.
2: They can use a real screen instead of one of those postage stamps on a phone, if it's an app.
3: If it's not an app, they'd actually have to talk to a real person, which is scary.

I don't own an xbox, but I can see the appeal.

Everything subby will ever need, maybe. I'm still waiting on my mass-produced jetpack.

They should hook it up to the Kinect.  They could make people gesticulate wildly to get their pizza, thus burning many calories.

Pizza Hut ain't horrific (it's all pizza, boys) but it's all about Greco, really. Atlantic Canadian pride!


Dude Greco is disgusting. You might as well just pour sugar directly into your mouth rather than state their sauce.

I don't know any good places in Newfoundland dude I haven't been in years but the best late night delivery food is this.

http://mezzarestaurant.com/

They used to be called Venus Pizza, and they still keep Pizza Joint hours and delivery service. They changed because instead of ordering pizza everybody was ordering schwarma plates or slouvaki or falaffle at 2:00 AM
 
2013-04-23 08:28:55 AM  
I don't see a app for booze or hookers. So they haven't invented everything yet.
 
2013-04-23 08:30:38 AM  
Thrilling.

I mean, as it stands now, when I'm playing a game on my Xbox, to order a pizza, I have to hit pause, reach over to my laptop, go to Pizza Hut's website, and order from there.

I'm sure this app will make things more... umm...  something.

Now you'll have the pleasure having to save and close your game, of waiting for the app screen to load and if you have an older Xbox possibly freezing. Then you'll find out you need to download an 8Mb update that does nothing, possibly freezes your xbox, and then you'll get to use a controller rather than a keyboard. On top of all that once you are done they'll call you to confirm the order so you are still going to have to use your phone. Meanwhile you'll have to reload your game. Oh yeah and if your xbox freezes they might try to send you a text message to confirm your identity when you log back in to XBL.

Oh great... yet another reason for people to remain egocentric. People are getting way too constrained to their own micro-communities as it is. It seems like it gets worse every day.

Real or perceived anonymity tends to erode accountability. Plus ..scary? really? ...are people that wussy?

RockofAges: If you went to a party, and there was fresh Pizza Hut, and you were offered a slice, would you turn it down, noting "No way, that's Pizza Hut"?


I would and I have.  Pizza Hut "pizza" is disgusting and anyone who likes it is disgusting and anyone who defends people who like it is disgusting.

I thought of this too. This was back when it was crazy and new to order food online rather than calling in. I loved it, personally, but my family and friends thought I was crazy. Now, it's much more common.
 
2013-04-23 09:21:21 AM  
I worked at Pizza Hut as a manager for 6 years, so I am getting a kick...

After all that time this is what I learned about Pizza Hut...
It is the place where low to middle income families go when they want a special night out but can bring the kids and not tip for shiat.
 
2013-04-23 09:29:41 AM  
Now that they've made that app, if MS invents an Xbox that dispenses tissues and lotion, teenage boys would never leave their rooms ever again.

A few years ago, I made the mistake of eating at a Pizza Hut. Their salad bar is the place where lettuce goes to die a slow death - most of the food in the salad bar looked like it had been sitting there since the Clinton administration. As for the pizza, I would say it tasted like cardboard covered in melted rubber and sugary ketchup, but that would be insulting to cardboard covered in melted rubber and sugary ketchup.

If you're being serious, you ARE a hipster. If not, kudos on the elitism troll.


Dude not eating greasy fake pizza isn't a sign of elitism or hipsterism. It's what all of us should be doing. These fast food joints that pack salt and fat into everything are contributing to an obesity epidemic that's killing  us at a increasing rate.  When health food proponents get upset at the restaurants  people rush to defend personal responsibility.  When Teufelaffe claims to exercise personal responsibility you call him a hipster or a troll. You can't have it both ways. If he's not allowed to politely decline eating greasy shiatty food then he needs to be allowed to campaign to ban greasy shiatty food.

I think maybe your love of greasy shiatty food should compel you to let him decline it rather than risk having it banned.

Dude, it's not elitism it's called "I don't want to be shiatting my guts out afterward because I ate dough soaked in grease."  Hell, I'll even eat farking Little Caesar's or Totino's cheap-ass frozen pizza before I'll put Pizza Hut in my mouth.  Ask some of the folks who've worked in a Pizza Hut how much grease they put in the pan before the dough goes in.  What Pizza Hut calls "pizza" is farking nasty and refusing to eat that shiat doesn't make someone a hipster or elitist.

Pizza Hut is indeed horrific. It's been years so maybe they've changed but the last couple times I've had their pizza were quickly followed by bathroom visits too horrendous to describe here.

Apparently pretty damn soft if they are reduced to eating unhealthy unpalatable mass produced shiat just to feel secure in their masculinity.

I've tried eating pizza hut several times, and I kind of have to agree with him. I'm not a pizza elitist; I will eat pretty much any pizza put in front of me. But for some reason, Pizza Hut makes me sick. And by "makes me sick," I mean that both literally and figuratively. I don't really like the taste, and it gives me stomach problems.

I'd take LIttle Caesers or a Tombstone pizza from the oven over Pizza Hut any day. I eat Dominos and Papa Johns fairly often, and those are fine too. But Pizza Hut? No thank you.

It's not easier if 1) it's the first time you're ordering or 2) your order radically changes each time.  Setting up and getting the first order through is always the hardest.  But if you routinely order the same couple of pizzas, and have them delivered to the same address, and you put them on the same card, apps make that process take about 10 seconds.
 
2013-04-23 10:43:17 AM  
Is their app still restricted to emails with 30 characters or less?

I stopped eating at Pizza Hut, though not due to the food.

I put "Draw Rainbow Dash" in the delivery instructions line of my order. Pizza Hut's delivery guy took a red pen and drew what he thought looked like a rainbow. Aside from missing a few key colors(like anything other than red), it was completely wrong. I said Draw Rainbow Dash not Draw A Rainbow. So if your deliver driver is lacking basic google skills, on top of understanding what a real rainbow looks like, I don't even want to fathom what skills the people making my pizza lack.

Dominos, on the other hand, arrived with the most perfectly cooked pizza(seriously they knocked it out with the feta, delicious) AND the driver was proud to display the Rainbow Dash he had actually drawn. I actually still have the box and a picture because i thought that was awesome.

In short, fark you pizza hut. You always screw up my order anyway.

I usually keep a couple of frozen pizzas in the freezer on stand-by. If I want okay-but-mediocre pizza, why pay more, hope they don't screw up your order, and have to tip a delivery guy?

If I'm going to spend money on a pizza, I'll hit up a local place where everything is fresh and made by someone besides stoned teenagers.

I tipped the domino's driver who got it right 12 bucks on a 10 dollar pizza.

Now, whenever that guy is working, my domino's pizza's get delivered in record time looking like they belong in the Louvre.

RockofAges: If you turned down a slice of pizza at a party because it wasn't a brand that was good enough for you, in my neck of the woods, yes, you are probably an elitist douche. It shows that someone has been pampered  quite a bit in their life to reject the offer of food at a party, not out of any major allergy or simple lack of hunger, but strictly on the basis that it's a "ooooooh, I don't eat X".

I don't like beer that tastes like it came out of a chimney, making me a pariah amongst beer snobs and hipsters alike, but I wouldn't turn down an offer of a Guinness, I would damn well drink it because it gets you drink, and it's a beer. You don't turn that shiat down.

Thanks for white knighting a fellow limp-wrister, though.


Ohhh Reginald. Your pizza is not made with the right kind of caviahhhhh, thus I may not ingest it. Also what do you call this? Coors? Jeeves, fetch the car. I need to go pickup my own libations to properly enjoy this gathering, as the food and drink are too substandard for my finely tuned palate.

You do realize that consuming things you don't like just because they've been offered to you doesn't make you more of a man, it makes you more of an idiot, right?  Being stoic and suffering in order to keep up appearances is what pre-teen boys and Hollywood script writers think being a man is.  Real men politely decline and get on with their lives.  But please, do keep telling us how we're lesser men because we're not afraid to assert ourselves.
