I wonder why Pizza Hut doesn't let us try these grand culinary creations here?
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Call me crazy, I'd try it. At least once.
I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

A while back there was a fair amount of discussion on pizza cones: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8750.msg75793.html#msg75793.

Also, at one time, Norma tried making pizza cones.

This to me bears no relationship to  a pizza cone.

Craig,

I agree but thought that perhaps it was the shape that you emphasizing. I thought also that you might not have seen the thread I referenced. However, I now see that you joined the forum about a month before the thread was started.

You're right. I had not seen that thread, but I remember Don's efforts to that end a while back.

I was more emphasizing the things Pizza Hut puts in the crust in the Middle East and pondering why they limit it to that region.

Craig,

I agree. It has long intrigued me that Pizza Hut has been the major U.S. pizza chain to try out unique pizza products outside of the U.S. Sbarro also tends to do similar things but not as strange as the PH offerings. Maybe PH uses its foreign markets as the guinea pigs for products that it might later test market in the U.S. Or maybe they are testing the processing methods.

Interestingly, there are foreign markets where PH still uses fresh dough in its stores. I wonder why it hasn't gone to frozen dough as it has in the U.S. (and, I believe, in Canada).

Pizza Hut is not the only food US food chain to offer "unique" products in other countries. Look at this Black Burger offered at Burger King in Japan. It comes with a bun blackened with bamboo charcoal and ketchup with squid ink.

I'd give it a go. Same for the Pizza Hut creations (I refuse to call them pizza). I bet they would go down pretty well with a 6pk.

How about opening a restaurant that only sells fast food items not available in the US? The menu could be organized by region and list the items offered in that region but not in the US.

I would be all fired up to eat one of Norma's cones, they look pretty appetizing. The Pizza Hut version, not so much. All the excess filling would just be too much of a gut bomb to me and everyone knows that I have a pretty high tolerance for fatty foods.

And I think that would work in some markets Craig. I know that I love going to stores the specialized in imported foods, even if the products aren't significantly different that what is offered locally. Something about trying new foods brings a sense of adventure to it all.
More is better..... and too much is just right.

Norma, your pizza cones in the link below look GREAT! Just the right size for my needs as an appetizer. I'm always looking for new ideas for appetizers at our family gatherings. I'm going to try it. Thanks for the idea!
The pizza cone is more appetizing than a pizza roll because you get to see a preview of what's inside.

Pete,

Thanks!  I was going to play around more with pizza cones, but always get sidetracked with other experiments.  The pizza cones were good, but really more trouble to make than regular pizza. 

Let us know if you decide to try and make pizza cones how they turn out.

Sure will, Norma. It might be an excessive amount of work, but for appetizers at a small family gathering iyt might be worth it. Finding or making some kind of cone form is going to be the challenge here.

Pete,

This is just one idea, but this is what a waffle cone tool looks like. http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/rolling_pizzelle_waffle_cones.aspx and the link for the waffle cone tool. http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/waffle_maker_makers_iron_irons_pizzelle_cone_heart_belgian_mix.aspx#conetool   I used to use on for waffle cones and it worked well.  I donít know how it would work for pizza cones though.  Maybe you could design your own and if you are a DIY person also make one.

I also am not sure I used the best dough formulation for a pizza cone, because I didnít play around with it enough.

Thanks, those pics gave me the info I needed. I could easily fabricate my own cone form using wood. If they hold their shape upside-down on a screen I could par-bake them that way. I could also fabricate my own cone holder. Cool ideas.

Pete,

I donít know if you looked though the whole pizza cone thread, but Francisco posted a picture of a stainless steel cone shaped mold at Reply 30 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8750.msg96341.html#msg96341  Don also gave his Boy Scout ideas on how to make a pizza cone at Reply 47 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8750.msg130094.html#msg130094  To me that sounds like something that might work.  Don also came up with another invention to bake a pizza cone at Reply 53 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8750.msg130262.html#msg130262   Don made a tasty looking pizza cone at Reply 60 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8750.msg130463.html#msg130463

Thanks Norma, that's great and plenty of ideas to work with. I might even experiment with cupcake pans. I'm sure I'm not the first one to to think of that. My goal is to make a mini pizza appetizer, so the cone shape is not mandatory.

Pete,

The cupcake pan sounds like a creative idea!  ;D  I don't know anyone else here on the forum that had thought of that before.
