A Pizza Hut in London is doing a trial run of a new style of dough that is infused with beer.
Pizza Hut chefs have come up with a brilliant idea to keep Britain's beer-lovers happy - a pizza base made with craft beer dough.
They have designed two special edition flavours that will be trialled this week and rolled out nationwide if they prove to be a hit.
But beer and pizza fans will have to be quick - because taste testing will only take place at the Finchley Lido Hut, this Friday, while stocks last.
Chefs reckon it's a ‘match made in heaven’ and are testing the dough with just two flavours, The Steak Feast and The American Hot.
Guests can try the new dishes for free at the brand's newly refurbished flagship restaurant – part of its nationwide £60 million investment programme.
But they'll need to whisper the secret words, ‘I Like it Hop’, to their waiter or waitress when ordering and purchasing a beer of their choice, to try the pizzas.
I can't tell whether I like this or not. Pizza and beer is a prime combination, but I don't know about putting them together. I think I bought beer infused dough once, and it turned out to be really good. The thing is, I bought that dough and made myself a pizza, I'm not a large scale chain restaurant.
What I am starting to think is that beer dough is good. It just concerns me that Pizza Hut is doing this. I don't think I have ever enjoyed food from Pizza Hut since 2006. Pizza Hut, Papa Ginos, Papa Johns, Unos, and Domino's are all garbage. Borderline some of the worst pizza I have ever had in my life, next to Digiornos frozen pizza.
Let's play a little game, name that pizza. I am gonna put up pictures of a few select cheese pizzas and you gotta guess which one is which. Since I am fair, I will give you a word bank. Your options are Pizza Hut, Papa Ginos, Domino's, and Digiorno's.

My final take, I am totally on board with this idea. I will never try the Pizza Hut version of this, or any other large pizza chains version. What I am hoping will come from this is a beer dough trend. One that extends past just the chain joints. A trend so great, so large that small pizzeria's and local chains start to do it. If this trial can inspire my go to pizza joints to try it out, then why not support it?
