Like JPT Pizza, Pizza Hill is an old Tianjin favorite. There is little doubt that when it first opened, it was trying to do nothing more than mimic Pizza Hut. This was clear from the eerily similar logo, the rather derivative decor and the almost identical salad bar. However, the Hill quickly grew to become a favorite amongst local expats. Many of the pizzas on offer are excellent, particularly the pepperoni and the mushroom. In fact, for a while, a couple of years ago, it was the only place you would find Italians eating pizza.
