At the Pizza Huts where I worked, all unused dough was thrown out at the end of each night. I didn't know this at the time, but their dough management scheme was quite inefficient.
Ha! Sorry to pick such an old topic for my first post (other than my introduction in the new member's forum) but this thread brought back lots of memories. First of all, when I was in high school in the late 70s/early 80s, a good friend of mine had a brother who would bring pizza dough home frequently from his job at Pizza Hut. We'd bake pies and watch Kung Fu movies and had the time of our lives.
More on topic, I'd like to say that I LOVED the original thin and crispy crust at Pizza Hut, just absolutely loved it. I grew up in a rural area and because we had a large family and were pretty blue collar, I didn't often get the opportunity to eat out. I still recall the first time ever eating in a Pizza Hut. I was probably 8 years old and was on the way home from a church trip to watch the Pittsburgh Pirates. We stopped at Pizza Hut, I had the thin crust pizza and thought I had died and gone to heaven.
I still live in a rural area and still don't eat out a lot but I'm glad to see others suggest that the thin and crispy at Pizza Hut today is nowhere near as good as it was "back in the day". I had thought that perhaps it seemed so different to me because of romantic memories from my childhood and I'm glad to know that I'm not crazy.
