surprisingly decent caricature of a pizza in the comforts of home. I like my pizzas thin-crusted, laden with good cheese and quality ingredients, and well-worth the extra miles at the gym – which unfortunately means most chain pizzas don’t appeal with their bright-orange cheeses and excessive grease. and while this particular pizza falls closer to the latter description, my family had a decently enjoyable meal – and so it’s well worth sharing.
I may not be a pizza expert, but I am a huge fan of seriouseats and their pizza-commentary – so I’ve been keeping up with pizza hut’s international exploits, of which this cheesy-bites-trio-pizza is one.
fast food is an intriguing category of dining – chains outdoing each other with singly-doubly-triply-sausage-stuffed crusts and mutant-miniature-hamburgers-as-crust variants. I suppose this could be considered a pretty mild choice, and the only atypical version we’ve ever ordered.
it came steaming, and opened up to a sight rather close to advertisements – little rolls of crust with cheese oozing out into a more typical-pizza centre. and while the cheese wasn’t the stringy gloriousness you hope (but don’t expect), a little dry and greasy – they were sufficiently cheesey and enjoyable the way fast food is.
it’s easier to eat the circumference rolls before proceeding with the pie as usual – otherwise it becomes a rather unwieldy mass – and even better if you go at the rolls with a healthy dunk in the cheese dip (a molten cheez-wiz), which had great patronage from the sis.
the crust was expectedly bready, but had good browning and an almost conscientious sprinkling of toppings on the surrounding rolls – I meant to say the pizza was inoffensive, but it was better than that. it’s higher-than-average fast food, and very good if you’re in the mood.
decent flavours, and the ability to do it in the comfort
and secrecy of your home without public exposure and the risk of foodie-shame makes this well-worth the try. not too expensive for not having to cook, neither, and remember to grab some salad to round it out!
