Pizza Hut Might Finally Give Me the Proper Amount of Cheese

So, you know, I'm fairly normal. I like pizza. But everytime I order it, I have to explain to the people working exactly how I want it, and their computers probably can't adequately display to the pizza makers what that is.

Until now.

    The company, a unit of Yum Brands Inc., launched a new Fit 'N Delicious pizza that contains half the cheese of a regular pizza served on the brand's thin crust. The pizzas will also use lean meats for toppings.

    "Consumers today are paying a lot more attention to what they're eating," Peter Hearl, Pizza Hut's president, told Reuters.

    A slice of the new pizza has 3.5 to 5 grams of fat, depending on the toppings. That's about 25 percent less than the usual thin-crusted slice, the company said in a statement.
So, now I need about HALF of the cheese on the half-cheese pizza, and don't give me that thin crust, give me the pan. Should be an even trade in what's bad for you, and it'll taste tremendous.

I should save this for future ordering.

Less ingredients?

That'll cost you extra.

It seems your husband is as cynical as I am. :)

There's a place near us that gives us half cheese, no problem. Of course, we also make boboli pizza's, with spinach and fresh tomatos, and even less cheese. It's fast, easy, and has a heck of a lot less fat than anything you'd get from a carry-out pizza place.

While I was schlepping pizzas for pocket money in college for Pizza Pit, they tried rolling out a low-cal line of pizzas. Since they were also low-flavor, it never caught on, and we threw away a lot of left-over "lite" toppings. Costs from food wastage soared, and the line was soon discontinued.
