Peeping the Pizzaiolo at The Kitchen by Pizza Hut


The Kitchen by Pizza Hut combines good value, big size, and cozy ambience. 

When you feel it's too lame to eat at a very mainstream food chain, you will seek for an alternative. That is exactly what was in Pizza Hut R&D department's thought when they decide to open The Kitchen.

"We try to grab back our customers with all back-to-basic menus," said Elizabeth.

The Kitchen seeks to impress younger customers, especially middle-up young workers. What makes them very different to Pizza Hut is the cooking time. When usual Pizza Hut needs 17 minutes to be served, The Kitchen offers new experiences with faster time: 5-7 minutes.

“Customers will have faster lunch and get back to their offices on time. They will have extra time for socializing with friends when having lunch,” said Elizabeth.

Arriving at The Kitchen, customers will see a long display counter where they can queue to order varieties of dishes. When choosing the dishes, customers can see the cooks’ activities in the open kitchen.

“Having an open kitchen means that we are ready to show customers our best effort to serve good food. From this kitchen, customers may see our cooking process. We are showing them that we use fresh ingredients and cook it properly,” said Elizabeth.

18-inches La Gourmet Pizza

This diner offers various basic pizzas such as Pizza Margherita, Pizza Hawaii Aloha, Pizza Salami Jalapeno, Pizza Bratwurst and Pizza La Gourmet. When the biggest pizza at Pizza Hut has 14 inches diameters, The Kitchen’s Pizza have only one size of pizza with 18 inches diameters. Customers may select their pizza per slice (Rp33,000) or per pan (Rp198,000).
