Buffalo Chicken Pizza from Pizza Hut Review
Mozzarella Cheese, Tomato Sauce Buffalo Chicken, Roasted Onions & Peppers, Jalapenos, finished with a Chipotle Mayo Drizzle
Buffalo Chicken Pizza Review
The lads were hot (as always) and looking for a summer menu pizza to cool things down. As Ted says that people in hot countries always eat hot and spicy things, then that’s the way to go. We happened past Pizzahut and noticed that the new menu included the Buffalo Chicken Pizza + Jalapenos Pizza, That’s defo the one for the lads.
We ordered it on a classic crust base and when we got our hands on the pizza (or at least our eyes) it looked a bit lame but don’t judge a book by it’s cover we say. The base was thin and fairly crispy but hot and tasty with a hint of garlic. The Tomato sauce was fairly thinly spread and we could’ve done with a bit more but it was rich and indulgent. Mozzarella Cheese was present and correct. Buffalo chicken was tender but once again we felt the portion was a bit stingy, but hey we are fairly greedy guys as our wives will testify. Taste wise it was reasonably hot and powerful . Scattered around were Roasted Onions & Peppers which was a more generous helping as is always the case with the “cheaper ingredients”, having said that a pizza always benefits from peppers and to a degree onions and no exception here they really lifted the pizza combo.
Our biggest gripe was with the Jalapenos and we agreed they were shrivelled up and tough and we felt that they had either been cooked too much or were not as fresh as they could have been. It was drizzled with a Chipotle Mayo Drizzle sauce which while looking nice was not something we would have had by choice as it added little to the combo. So all in all a reasonable all around pizza let down mostly by the Jalapenos.
So the Pizza Lads decided on a reasonable thumbs up.
Tuna & Sweetcorn Flat Bread Pizza from Pizza Hut Review
Tomato sauce, mozzarella, tuna, red onion, sweetcorn, a ranch and rocket on our light Flat bread base.
Tuna & Sweetcorn Flat Bread Pizza Review
The lads were strapped for cash as normal, but had managed to hide enough money away from the wives for a pizza treat. So sneaking off when they busy we legged it down to the nearest pizza hut. We scanned the menu and realised that we had never reviewed a flat bread style pizza, so we decided to remedy this situation. Now an authentic flat bread pizza should not really have sauce on in our opinion but this did so in our opinion it just a oval shaped pizza. In reality this base has a slightly crunchier bite we felt, but we are getting ahead of ourselves. So we ordered the tuna and sweetcorn one. The flat bread duly turned up and was reasonably hot, the appearance was a bit messy with rocket leafs and ranch sauce strewn across the top.
So onto the review, the base was fairly thin and as we said a bit crunchy but was at least a nice variation on the usual. The tomato sauce was strong and tasty. The mozzi cheese was a bit sparse but tasty enough, The toppings were a fairly standard combination of Tuna which was fresh from tin we thought but OK for all that and sweetcorn (dare we say it might have been tinned?). It was brought to life by the red onion a bit. As we said before rocket leafs and ranch sauce adorned the top which was at least a diversion from the norm.
So all in all a disappointing effort , something a student could knock up similar at home for a Thursday quick tea maybe.

Texas Meat Meltdown Pizza from Pizza Hut Review
Spicy pork, chicken breast, pepperoni, chorizo & BBQ sauce base.
Texas Meat Meltdown Pizza Review
The Pizza Lads had been reviewing some exotic pizzas of late and as always we started to crave a more run of mill Pizza, slow cooked this, italian that, infused with etc etc. No! we want a good old fashioned Meat + Cheese type thing. Pizza Hut was our destination and looking at the menu we decided upon the Texas Meat Meltdown, Meat = check, cheese = check. were good to go then.
The pizza duly arrived in our “pan” base choice (deep pan for those not familiar) and the pizza looked good in it’s brownish coloured hues. It was reasonably hot, though we thought it might have been sitting around a bit.
The base was just right and not to doughy and cooked to crispy finish on the bottom. BBQ sauce had a rich indulgent smoky taste and we were satisfied with that. Toppings were pretty much edge to edge. The cheese was a bit thinly spread but with a delicious stringy texture. The pepperoni was a good variety and not too fatty and had a decent kick which is always pleasing. The chicken was not as brown as we would have preferred, but at least the taste was acceptable. Spicy Pork was the saving grace of this pizza combo and it was generously spread and tender with again a built in kick. Chorizo was a bit tough but with a solid taste. The top was dizzled with more BBQ sauce. So not the best pizza we have had in our life but certainty far from the worst. So our back to basics quest was a slight failure..

BBQ Americano Pizza from Pizza Hut Review

The BBQ Americano Pizza Review
The lads had had a meeting and decided to redouble the efforts they are putting into bringing you the best pizza reviews on the interweb. The summer was fading fast now and Christmas is round the corner and it was touch and go if our marriages would last that long. At the meeting it was decided that our mission was to review every Pizza available from every Pizza chain and supermarket in the UK. Wow was it possible, would we die before the end?
Anyway enough waffle, we scouted a few menus to discover Pizzas we hadn’t reviewed yet. The first one Bill saw was the Pizza Hut – BBQ AMERICANO. Off we went and settled down for the feast to follow. The base we chose was the ALL AMERICAN THIN which I said would go well with AMERICANO inspired toppings.
It says on the menu that they have been hand stretching these since 1958! and to be honest we wondered if this was the original one they had started with. It was far too tough for our delicate palate. We suspected it had been cooked a little too much. So a lot of ground to be made up after this bad start. Happily things got a little better from there on. The sauce was the Smoky BBQ which was tasty but we felt that too much had been drizzled over the top so it became a bit overpowering. It was passable. The Chicken was nice and was a lovely colour (or color should we say as we are all Americanised now) and it was succulent and fresh . What else, the Bacon was reasonable if a little thin on the ground and all rounded off with Sweetcorn, which is not our favourite topping.
All in all we didn’t feel this Pizza hit the mark. So howdy partnering and yee-hawing we made are way.

Epic Pepperoni Pizza from Pizza Hut Review
Discover Pizza that’s a long way away from the same-old, same-old. We’ve taken our famous favourites, and remastered them with a premium flavour boost. Triple Cheese, Pepperoni & Chorizo.
The Epic Pepperoni Pizza Review
It’s hot hot hot, the summer grinds on and tempers were frayed. The lads and the missuses were fighting like cats and dogs all the time. Ted was Googling to find out how dudes in hot countries kept cool and it seems they eat hot spicy food, we mentioned this to the wives and they virtually threw us out the door to “cool down” at the local Pizza Hut.
Yo-Hoo, we had permission to indulge ourselves. So off we went to scan the menu, Ted hadn’t had much Pepperoni lately and we agreed that the Epic Pepperoni Pizza was going to fit the bill. Duly served up fresh we opted for the pan base with is deep with crispy edges and a fluffy insides. Tomato sauce check. Triple Cheese which are Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and Red Leicester, this is a good combination and we particularly like the Monterey Jack which adds an indulgent twist. The pepperoni and Chorizo gave us the spice and heat we needed to “cool down”. The Chorizo had a great texture as well, so a great traditional combo with a twist to lift it out from the ordinary and it looked great to be honest. Perhaps we should have gone for a more spicy option really but it was just enough. Right, back home for more fun and games!

Epic Meat Feast from Pizza Hut Review
Discover pizza that’s a long way away from the same-old, same-old. We’ve taken our famous favourites, and remastered them with a premium flavour boost.
Triple cheese, shaved steak, paprika pulled chicken, pepperoni & ham.
The Epic Meat Feast Pizza Review
The Lads were back for the caravan holiday in Skegness and to be honest we were pretty pleased to have survived it at all, or at least the fact our marriages were still intact. The strain was telling toward the end and only the thought of taste testing the new range of “Epic” Pizzas at Pizza Hut kept us going.
Now what is this Epic business about? The Pizzas were pretty good already. So it seems in a nutshell that triple Cheese is the first change, namely Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and Red Leicester, Does this alone give a return on the 2 pound extra cost? We thought maybe, were all for Monterey Jack as it really is a lively and flavourful Cheese, The Red Leicester adds some body and a nutty taste. So we thought this made things more indulgent (in a cheese feast sort of way).
The base was up to the usual high Pizza Hut standard. The shaved Steak replaced the Beef in the standard Meat Feast and it was an improvement in our view, though maybe a bit more chewy than we would have preferred. The Paprika pulled Chicken replaces the Chicken breast and once again good flavour but maybe a bit chewy. All rounded off with the good old Pepperoni & Ham.
Was it Epic, it was certainly more tasty in our opinion but didn’t add too much, but hey it was only a bit more expensive and on balance we would recommend it!

Hawaiian Pizza Review from Pizza Hut Review
Cheese, Ham & Pineapple
The Hawaiian Pizza Review
Well the boys at Pizza Hut really know how to oversell the pizzas, no oozing cheese, succulent pineapple, oven baked farmhouse Ham –
type descriptions for them. No just Ham, Pineapple.
Still nice sounding descriptions a good pizza does not make! So Mr Ham and Pineapple, the lads are going to put you to the test!
We chose the classic crust and standard cheese and tomato sauce. The base was all nice and good and sauce was as expected and new. The Ham was good and crispy but perhaps overdone a bit at the edges, but passable. The pineapple was fresh from the tin bill said (only joking) and was, despite the smallish pieces indeed succulent. So we were satisfied just. A uninspiring experience.

Philly Cheese Steak Pizza from Pizza Hut Review
Shaved steak, caramelised onions, green peppers & triple Cheese blend on a creamy base.
The Philly Cheese Steak Pizza Review
The lads are always on the lookout for a new pizza and when we scoped the Philly Cheese Steak at our local Pizza Hut we were just going to have to try one.
We had a pan base which was crispy around the edges and lovely and soft inside, just how we like it. The crowning ingredient is the Steak and we were happy with it, but it could have been a little less chewy, however the flavour was spot on. We loved the caramelised onions which set off the tastebuds. The Green Peppers and the triple Cheese were all good and when put together tasted very indulgent. Creamy base was different and we thought it got a bit lost with all the fantastic flavours going on.
So a thumbs up for this pizza from The Pizza Lads.
New Orleans Cajun Sizzler from Pizza Hut Review
Paprika pulled chicken, roquito® chilli peppers, red onions & mixed peppers.
The New Orleans Cajun Sizzler Pizza Review
The lads were feeling cold as the winter dragged on, Ted’s suggestion to his wife that they cuddle in bed to keep warm was met with a stony silence, so a quick call to Bill and they were off to Pizza Hut.
The eye catching item on the menu was the New Orleans Cajun Sizzler as it looked so different with the Cheesy Garlic bites around the edge. The base was super thin and we commented how nice is was. The Pulled chicken was spicy and tender so no complaints there. The trademarked roquito® chilli peppers were slightly different to the run of the mill variety, but no great shakes to our mind and the onions and peppers joined the party to set things off a treat.
We enjoyed it but to be honest the base was the standout and we shall be sampling that again soon I suspect!

The Meaty One from Pizza Hut Review
The lads have been hard at work eating pizzas and reviewing how good they are for a while now and it’s looking like we are becoming the Internet’s number one independent pizza review site. We don’t our orders for from some faceless corporate marketing department so our reviews can be trusted.
Anyway enough of the bigging ourselves up, lets go to pizza hut and big ourselves up some more.
We hadn’t tried the The Meaty One yet so it’s was an obvious choice. We thought we would try a new base offering, the “Large Five Cheese” Stuffed with Mozzarella, Edam, Red Leicester, Gouda & Vintage Cheddar topped with an Emmental crust sprinkle. Wow it was cheesier than a pair of last weeks socks the missuses hadn’t got round to washing yet. The toppings are Pepperoni, Spicy Pork, Seasoned Minced Beef, Crispy Bacon, Chicken.
Now this is a cheese / meat blow out. It was lovely to be honest apart from the minced beef which seemed a bit chewy, however it didn’t spoil it.
So overall a winner and the five cheese base will be featuring more in future.
