As part of our Friday feature reviews, we take a look at the new Pizza Hut offerings that are set to be released on November 19th nationwide. One of my favorite blogs, The Consumerist, received an invitation to try each and every new crust, sauce, and topping. While Pizza Hut now has a total of 2 billion different combinations, they only served 21 different pizzas to members of the press.
Here are some of the highlights:
It was like being in Willy Wonka’s house if he did pizza: “What is this special thing? Oh there are nine special things going on in just this one slice oh my god oh my god the pressure to experience IT ALL AT THE SAME TIME.”
Mary goes on to say:
The underlying theme is that under all the jazz and pizazz, each one tasted like… Pizza Hut pizza. Sort of spongy, lukewarm cheese and an acceptable crust I wouldn’t kick out of bed.
It appears that Pizza Hut is really going for an ingredient overload, and while some seemed to work, others clearly did not.
Mary’s favorite seemed to be the “Cheese and Salted Pretzel crust edge” pizza. She said the crust was a bit salty, but the cheese and pretzel combination was good. She also liked the “Pretzel Piggy” which consists of “creamy garlic Parmesan sauce, hardwood smoked bacon, fresh mushrooms, and fresh spinach with a pretzel crust edge and balsamic sauce drizzle.”

We are excited to try some of these combinations when they come out. Pizza Hut seems to have made a pizza that anyone could enjoy, however the quality of the ingredients might be what makes or breaks the whole endeavor.
