Interesting about Pizza Hut....
Pizza Hut is older than Domino’s by two years – and was officially the first chain pizza restaurant in America. Pizza Hut was founded in 1958 by Dan and Frank Carney. The two brothers borrowed $600 from their mom to open a pizza place in Wichita, Kansas. They named it Pizza Hut, because their sign only had room for eight letters. On opening night, they gave away pizza to encourage community interest in the new concept. Six months later they opened a second outlet and within a year they had six Pizza Hut restaurants. There are now more than 16,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries.
Here's their site. Scroll down and click on "restaurants by state" to find one close to you....
From Mr. Food
Easy Italian recipes are sometimes hard to come by. Well, a quick stop at the dairy aisle was all it took to inspire us to whip up this easy, cheesy casserole. Plus, with June being National Dairy Food Month, we couldn't think of a better time to take advantage of all the sales that can be found in our supermarket's dairy case. So grab a spoon and dig into our All-In-One Italian Bake! It's always a praise-worthy recipe.
