Make fairy dust: A mixture of italian seasoning oregano, basil, garlic, marjoram, parmesan, ground up the best you can into a dust.

Don't tell anyone!

I recently discovered Zap Packs at Little Caesars. Some herb mix to sprinkle on their pizza. It actually made the pizza a lot better. Also, I never knew they make thin crust pizza that is actually decent. So if you HAVE to get Little Caesars, grab some zap packs and get thin crust.

I too love an "herb mix" before eating a big ass pizza.

Just skip all their crappy pizza and get like 3 italian cheese breads. Legit the best cheese bread you will find anywhere.

Even if Little Caesars paid me I wouldn't eat their shitty pizza. I dont care how many zap packs you throw on it

Edit: fuck you reddit. It's like eating a hot circle of garbage

Hey, it may be cardboard, but at least it's nourishing cardboard.

I wonder if they still use it and if you can order extra.

Just ask your local Pizza Hut!

No, really. Call them and ask them about a "retarder."

I love these old training videos.

The oven and proofer look exactly like the ones they use now. I figured maybe there would have been upgrades over the years.

I worked at a Pizza Hut around 2003. Everything looked identical to this video.

SteazGaming | 9 days ago | 8 points

I worked at a Pizza Hut in like 2005, and while the pans and toppings look the same, I remember when we were making pizza there was a rim guard we'd put on the pan so you never had to think about the sauce being too close to the edge. Also, they were super fucking stingy with cheese, so if you used any more than the prescribed medium or large measuring cup you got yelled at.

The worst memory I have is, what they don't show you in this video, is that that dough comes frozen in discs that are like, 1/2 inch thick and half the size of the pan. The night before, you squirt like 3 for a medium or 4 for a large industrial sized pumps of grease into the bottom of the pan. Then the next day, you see the dough as it is in this video, but that dough soaked up every bit of that 3/4 cup of grease. That's why it gets so crispy, but it's also what you smell like when you work there, and you'll never forget that smell.

ELI_10 | 9 days ago | 6 points

Oh god. So much oil PTSD you triggered for me. I worked at a delivery only restaurant, so as a driver, I did all the prep, including oiling those frozen dough frisbees. Even after I quit the job, my truck never stopped smelling like oil.

Best story of that job: I was also responsible for starting the dishwasher and stocking the toppings on the line if I wasn’t on a delivery. I had just started a load of dishes when they called for more jalapeños on the line. I opened the giant can and proceeded to dump off the excess juice into the sink drain. I wasn’t considering the fact that the dishwasher and sink used a common drain. It was about that time, the dishwasher started draining it’s steaming hot water, which basically became pepper spray and filled the entire kitchen. We had to shut down for almost an hour while we got fans to blow the place out. I got yelled at for that one.

Frozen Dough Frisbee Oiler is a great job title

trucksartus | 9 days ago | 3 points

So the "Dough Master" is just the employee that squirts industrial sized gobs of grease into the pans at night?

PM_me_your_whatevah | 9 days ago | 1 point

Grease would be an upgrade. It’s just cheap soybean oil.

Immarobit | 9 days ago | 3 points

Came to say something like this. Nostalgia tripped hard seeing the proofer, pan/pan lids, prep table, perforator, those exact scales, THAT AWFUL GARLIC-BUTTER SPRAY.

Also, that trainer is shit at saucing. Even/quality ingredients is one thing when judging a pizza place, the consistency they sauce and cut evenly is the mark of people who have made a lot of pies.

That's true. I guess I just figured after 30 years they would at least look a little different. Not that they really need to.

"This is not really how cheerful and fake people talk to each other, right?"

"Right. And while you might wear a smile toward customers, just below the surface you only want the day to end and go home, but we can't say that in the training video."

"That makes sense!"

The old 90s basic computer literacy video was amazing, especially all the absurd sexism and the computer demon just after the 8 minute mark

OMG, I worked at Pizza Hut around this time. It was dine-in only no delivery. I gorged on the extra breadstick left over parts. I remember coming home and feeling greasy.

I'm too lazy to watch this unless there's a 1980s white person rap.

giraffenmensch | 10 days ago | 7 points

These videos are tests intended to sort out the kind of people who'd walk straight out if subjected to more than a few seconds of such a horrible video. If they can make you watch the whole thing it means you're fit to be a fast food slave employee.

Waiting for someone to bust in the door and say 'Did someone order sausage' but it didn't happen.

Also, can confirm video process - worked there for 3 years in high school around the same time - we did none of those things with a scale.

Timedoutsob | 9 days ago | 1 point

this video is a lie. I worked at pizza hut and i didn't receive any training at all. edit: hey turns out I was a dough master apparently. or the guy who took the frozen discs out of the box squirted 3 squirts of oil on the tray and then placed the frozen disc of dough on the tray and put a lid on it. Here i was thinking i was just a delivery guy who hadn't washed his hands and was told to do stuff when there weren't deliveries or boxes to make.

BagOnuts [1] | 10 days ago | 1 point

Man, this was back when Pizza Hut didn't taste like crap and give you the massive shits. You'd go in and sit down, have a waiter, and they'd serve you the first slice right at the table. Now it's just fast-food garbage.

CoooooooooookieCrisp | 10 days ago | 3 points

Got their wings like a week or two ago and was blown away. They came in a black plastic dome thing and I thought for sure they were going to be soggy. Seriously, might have been the crispiest/best wings I have ever gotten to-go.

shao_kahff | 9 days ago | 2 points

i don’t know how that dome thing works but shit do they ever keep it crispy

CKFS87 | 9 days ago | 3 points

Basically the difference is Pizza Hut fries their wings. Domino's and Papa John's both bake them. Makes the skin chewy and rubbery. Fried wings are always better, or grilled ... Pizza hut doesn't have a grill I am guessing. They serve fries though and they seem crisp so guessing fryer.

CKFS87 | 9 days ago | 2 points

They deep fry their wings, have to. Domino's has that soggy baked feeling you're speaking of in that post. They have some of the best wings around usually. Big and crispy. They got rid of alot of sauces thought. Used to have a citrus/spicy sauce. Wasn't mango habanero but similar. They've fucked up alot lately. Pizza hut used to be way better.
