Pizza Hut Pizza could only improve with bird droppings as a topping.

I don't know about bird droppings but, I know Pizza Hut is extremely thoughtless when it comes to its neighbors. They have garbage pick up at 5:00am, lawn maintenance at 6am on weekends. Employees with blaring music.

The other night, 1:00am delivery!
