Power of Pizza

It's been said time and again that the fastest way to a man's heart is through food. Now, if you make that food pizza then you've found the shortcut to Ruy's heart.

I decided to come home one day with this:

At 11:30pm, one does not have much choice as to the food she can order. My choices at that time were KFC and Pizza Hut. I called Ruy and asked him what he would prefer and of course he chose Pizza Hut.

I have mentioned in other posts that I am not a pizza person and I only have a handful of flavors which I actually enjoy. The BBQ Ribs Pizza from Pizza Hut is that one flavor which slightly swayed my opinion on pizzas. This is the first pizza I actually craved. During my pregnancy the hormonal me would order this at 12mn...

This pizza is not for everyone. A lot of people are put off by the sweetness of the ribs "Pizza is not supposed to be sweet" according to these people. I do not subscribe to this line of thought. The more dessert-like things are the better. =)

This pizza has oodles of onions which further add to the sweetness of the ribs and its sauce. The ribs are marinated in the exact same way their a la carte rib dish is. The meat is tasty and tender although my husband is currently doubting their 'rib-ness', he says we can't tell what part that meat really is from as they're sliced in small pieces. I say I don't care what they are, if it tastes like ribs and it's labeled as ribs then that's what it is. =) Other ingredients include mushrooms and bell peppers though they're practically indistinguishable as the ribs and its sauce are the main attraction here.

Greedy old me decided to have their cheezy pops instead of the traditional crust. I made the mistake of eating the pops first (which are quite tasty) and ended up not being able to eat much of the pizza. The pops were really heavy on the stomach plus they make the pizza slice very difficult to handle leaving both Ruy and myself with toppings on our shirts. (Thank goodness I don't do the laundry)

Hi Liv
I'm one of those who like sweetish pizza, or any pizza flavor except tuna. The BBQ ribs look delicious.

What are cheezy pops? We don't have that style here in the US and I would like to try to recreate them in my kitchen.:)

wish they'd bring back their eat-all-you-can promo. hehe good old days.

Oggi: Cheezy pops is the latest evolution to the plain crust. It's basically stuffed crust but shaped like Combos. =) It's stuffed with 3 kinds of cheese

Jen: Hey girl, don't let me distract you from your healthy ways. I'm supposed to be your cheerleader not the one tempting you...hahaha

Liv said...

Hi Liv. It's always interesting to see the different pizza toppings that are marketed in other parts of the world.

Oggi, we do have cheesy pops here in the U.S., it's just named something else and is essentially a cheese-stuffed crust;)
