    Maybe we've found a good use for Shiner Bock:flushed: I mean, the Brits were surely going to put corn on TOP of it anyway...

    Pizza Hut is the Budweiser of pizza chains: all gimmicks, no quality.

    Little Caesars is the worst pizza chain in the country!

    I would say it's an accurate analogy, they both have their place, but there is always a better option. That being said their new stuffed garlic knots are really good.

    Little Caesar's is the PBR of chain pizza: it's far from the best, but it'll do the job if all you got is $5.

    Hungry Howies is Steel Reserve.

    I like the idea of beer pizza much more than pizza beer.

    This is what diastatic malt does. It should be used anyway.

    As a New Yorker, I don't believe I could enter a Pizza Hut without my skin sizzling like a demon entering a church.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this one. It sounds like a cool idea, but not sure if I would enjoy how it tastes.

    It's not bad. I used to make beer crust pizza years ago when I didnt have packets of yeast.

    As much as I dislike Pizza Hut, I might give these try provided they look like the ones pictured in the article.

    I haven't been in a pizza hut in years, so maybe they have changed, but I have only ever seen them serve BMC. Why would they put better beer than what they serve in their crust? Might try it if I amstarving to death or it's free.

    They should first experiment with infusing their pizza with flavour.

    Not to turn this into a pizza argument but Hungry Howie's actually tastes pretty decent for a big chain, and is significantly better than Little Caesars.

    I am O.K. with Pizza Hut for middle of the road pizza. Kind of like MacDonalds. Not top shelf but consistent. No surprises good or bad.

    When I lived in Nasville, in late 90s, there was a place that made their pizza dough with Shiner Bock. I remember it being tasty. I think it was Mafioza's, but no mention of that "secret ingredient" on their current website.

    You're right about that. As a child, I always wondered why papa never got us Little Caesar's; it wasn't until I was 25 and tried it for the first time that I found out why.

    Papa John's all the way.

    It's funny how the pizza snobs are so offended by the simple mention of a few pizza chains..

    It's funny how you immediately assume I'm a pizza snob when I havn't been pizza hut, papa johns, little Caesars or pretty much any fast food pizza place in many years lol

    Sorry, but if one thinks they will detect any beer flavor in the crust they have probably had a few too many beers beforehand.
