I was thinking that I should not write about Pizza Hut, because it is a global chain & everyone knows about it. But then I realized that specially developed recipes, which they offer in Pakistan, will not be available in other countries. So Travelers interested in Pakistani food should also try Pakistani Pizza.
Their Chicken & Beef Pizza's with Pakistan Spices & Recipe are very tasty and mouth watering. I regularly taste their delicious Pizza every once in a month or two. I love:
Behari Chicken Pizza
Chicken Tikka Pizza
In Starter BBQ Chicken Spin Rolls & Behari Chicken Spin Rolls are nice.
Recently they have introduced Arabic recipe Pizza like:
A BRIEF HISTORY:
Pizza was originated in Greece. It is one of the oldest foods. An early type of Pizza was present in Roman age. Modern pizza (with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese) was originated in Italy about 125 years ago. In 20th Cintury the dish has become globally popular mainly due to Italian Immigrants, who brought it to America & many other parts of the world.
In Pakistan it was introduced in late 1980's. Now Pizza Hut has more than 20 outlets in Karachi 2 in Islamabad, 2 in Rawalpindi & 20 Outlets in Other major Cities of Pakistan. In the regions where pizza is known, spicy chicken and sausage-based pizzas are very popular, as they cater to the local palate.
Favorite Dish: Fajita Cicilan Pizza
Behari Chicken Pizza

even though in the west, pizza hut is considered as a casual place to go to, in pakistan people from the upper class usually go there. the pizza was was very good. but i had one complain with the waiter, i gave a him a tip of 10 rupees but he insisted more! the surroundings of the restaurant were very good as the area is very quiet. it's always a good place to go if you are fed up of the scorching heat.
Even though Pizza Hut is just a normal, middle-class type of restaurant in America, in Pakistan it is considered a big status symbol to be able to go to Pizza Hut. I went last Friday, and there was a 1/2 hour wait. There is a bookstore called 'Saeed's Book Bank' in the same line, so one may pass time there if forced to wait.
Pizza Hut has 3 floors and quite a lively atmosphere. You will see all these snobby elite people there who whine about frivolous things. They are amusing to watch. Service and food quality is better than in the States, and there is a much wider selection as well. Another good thing about it is that the food is apparently hygeinic since no one in my family got stomach upset like we usually do.
Favorite Dish: I only tried the Chicken Tikka Pizza, and it was excellent. The cheese was warm and bubbly, and the chicken was perfectly spiced.
World's most popular Pizza Hut was opened in Islamabad in year 2002. It is located in Junnah Super Market Islamabad. You would always find it crowded with pizza lovers of twin cities.
Their pizzas are good but I am not satisfied with quality. You would find good quality and quality of Pizza if you visit any Pizza Hut outlet in Karachi. But here in Islamabad it looks a bit different. But their pizzas are no doubt good.
Favorite Dish: Barbeque Chicken Pizza and Chapli Kabab Pizza
