Latest Pizza Pit news and reviews

JM and Nichole ate the bacon cheeseburger pizza, a cookie pizza, a root beer and a White Russian.
The bill was $22, or $11/person, with coupon.
JM and Nichole gave Pizza Pit a B (see our grading rubric).

BlingThe Pizza Run concluded with Pizza Pit, literally in a pit (more down a couple of steps than a hovel) inside the bowling alley. The place was hopping on a Saturday night; we played some SkeeBall and won some crap. The White Russian was watery and served in a pint glass, but the root beer was OK. "Tell Me Something Good" by Rufus was on the jukebox.

The bacon cheeseburger pizza was, well, just how it sounded. We'd subbed green peppers for the double portion of bacon and were glad because it was still hella greasy. This kind of elementary substitution would be nice from the occasional pizza joint.

The giant cookie was a little dry, and would have been better made smaller and thicker. As at Pizza Hut, no one joined us for this outing, thus damning Pizza Pit with faint praise. 

Pizza, cookie, white russian

B? Really? This stuff doesn't even resemble pizza! Made the mistake of ordering here once, and learned my lesson - don't ever eat at a restaurant with "pit" in the name.

I ate at the east wash location and I thought the pizza was great. Much better than most places of the same style pizza.
