Why does PizzaHut make me sick?

I love pizza, I love eating it without using a knife and fork, or a spoon

But what is the deal with Pizza Hut? IMHO, Pizza Hut has the best darned tasting pizza around.
I am not ragging on Pizza Hut, and I have had pizza from plenty of other places, but why does Pizza Hut make me sick? Does anyone else get sick? Cramps, abdominal pain, discomfort, then diarrhea.

Anyone here in public health, or have knowledge of nutrition and can give me the background info on Pizza Hut?

Yeah, it sounds like a mild allergic reaction.

^ what they said.

If you really must eat it, I would say keep doing it and your body, assuming that you don't have other problems, will adapt. Imagine a vegan suddenly picking up meat again.

Of course I am no nutritionist and my outlook on bodily health may be a little different since I am one of those people that is pretty much immune/resistant to everything (thanks mom and dad!).

Eat Pizza Hut's Pizza????
I would not, could not, in a box.
I could not, would not, with a fox.
I will not eat it with a mouse.
I will not eat it in a house.
I will not eat it here or there.
I will not eat it anywhere.
I can not eat Pizza Hut's stuff.
It makes me ill, sure enough.

Pizza Hut makes pizza? When did that start happening?

On a related note: Taco Bell makes me pee out my butt.

See, you have to buy your pizza on the day that the cook with the 2 inch long fingernails is NOT working. Then you won't get sick.

No seriously, it's the new cardboard that they're using for the crust.

I have a similar problem with Burger King Whoppers. It's been 9 years since I've had one, but sometimes when I ride by the BK, it smells soooo dang good!

I'd just stop if I were you. Maybe move to northern New Jersey and enjoy some real pizza.

Could it be the quart of hydrogenated oil that soaks into the crust as it bakes? You know, restaurants don't have to include "prep material" in their nutritional info, so that squirt of hydrogenated oil they put in the pan adds to the already staggering 30g of fat in the personal pan pizza (12g of which is saturated).

Next time try asking for light sauce, I have the same problems with most chain pizzas.

Do not have nearly the same problems with pizza is made with light sauce.

Pizza Hut, like Budweiser, is the biggest not necessarily being the bestest.

I delivered pizzas for them as a night job 20+ years ago, and seem to recall excessive amounts of vegetable oil being used in their pan pizzas. I think I'd even eat a Domino's before that crap.

Those chain-store Pizzas are NASTY! I can't bare to think of eating at any. Even if some one offered me free Pizza-Hut Pizza, I would decline. Local Pizza Places are sooo much better!

yeah - they do tend on being a little greasy (pan pizza) - and the grease doesn't taste like it's from pepperoni or sausage either.

My thought as well. Oil just drips off the slices.

Way back in high-school I worked at a Pizza Hut, and the dough wasn't pre-made. Unless that's all changed, the prep kitchens still have a big Viking floor-stand mixer and the dough is prepared fresh each day.

This sounds like it has not changed one bit. Those pan pizza crusts were just drenched in food-grade 5W-10.
