    My BF has been craving Pizza Hut's Romano salad dressing for sometime now. I have exhausted my online searches for a copycat recipe with no luck. They no longer make/use the dressing at Pizza Huts (at least in this area). I am wondering if anyone else is familiar with the dressing and may have some ideas as to how to make it. I never had it, that I can remember, so it makes it hard to make an attempt at a copycat. He said it was a creamy dressing the consistancy and color of a ranch dressing.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Hi, and welcome to Recipezaar! It's very nice to meet you.

    I'd like to invite you to click on FAQ's and Additional Recipezaar Navigation a thread which you'll find hugely helpful as you move around the site.

    I would do a search for a creamy Italian dressing and add a pile of grated Romano cheese to it.

    There used to be a website called Topsecretrecipes.com or something similar that had recipes that were so close to the specific recipes you didn't know the difference.

    I would start with a well-rated Parmesan Dressing and substitute romano cheese. icon_wink.gif

    I have been trying to find pizza huts romano dressing for years! I looked at the of a jar of it back when they sold it and yumyum inc was the name of the company who made it. I cant freakin find it. I also grew up in Maryland and no other pizza hut has ever had it. There isnt a recipe out there that can come even close to how amazingly delicious this dressing is. You're a good friend for trying to help your friend. If you've never had it you will never be able to understand the intense desire a person can have for it. I'm serious! I havent looked for it for years but I am pregnant with twins and tonight I started craving it. Now its going to drive me crazy until I find it or something comprable. I googled it tonight and found your question. Have you had any luck over the last year. Have you found it or something close that your friend has approved? Please tell me yes! Please tell your friend my whole family shares in the bittersweet pain of loving this wonderful romano salad dressing and not being able to find it. Damn you PizzaHut! LOL I look forward to hearing from you!

    I tried to invent a copycat based on homemade mayonnaise. This is a tasty trial batch; easy to make.

    Mystic Pizza Hut Romano Dressing

    1 cup neutral oil
    2 T buttermilk or milk
    2 T red wine vinegar or other vinegar
    2 T. lemon juice
    ½ tsp salt
    2 tsp minced garlic or equivalent powder
    ½ tsp white pepper or black pepper
    ½ tsp mustard powder
    ½ tsp onion powder
    2/3 cup grated Romano, pre-blended to small grain
    ¼ tsp MSG or omit
    2 eggs 1 might be enough

    Stick blend all ingredients except oil in 1 pint container.
    Add oil very gradually while blending until it thickens but remains pour-able, refrigerate; it will thicken more.

    6/11/12
    This is pretty tart, maybe 1T lemon juice, not 2
    Could double the pepper
    Could add ½ tsp more salt
    Could add ½ to 1 tsp sugar

    The company is www.yum.com
    They own these restaurants KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and other overseas.

    If you go to their website, you may be able to contact them and ask.

    Maybe this is the closest similar recipe found in the Internet. Take a look:

    COPYCAT PIZZA HUT'S ROMANO CHEESE DRESSING RECIPE -
    http://godsamazingharvest.blogspot.com/2010/12/romano-cheese-dressing.html
    Ingredients:
    1/4 cup mayonnaise
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    2 tsp cider vinegar
    2 Tbsp shredded Romano cheese
    1 Tbsp grated Romano cheese
    1/2 tsp minced garlic
    1/4 tsp sugar
    1/4 cup milk
    1 tsp lemon juice
    Directions:
    1. Combine milk and lemon juice in a small bowl or measuring cup. Let sit for about 5 minutes (this will curdle the milk, making buttermilk!)
    2. In larger bowl, combine mayonnaise, olive oil, cider vinegar, romano cheese, garlic, and sugar.
    3. When milk has set for 5 minutes, pour into other ingredients. Blend in blender or with an immersion blender to fully combine and make creamy!.
