The Snack Attack: Pizza Hut Debuts New Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza [TASTE TEST]

It’s a pizza that needs little explanation — the newest Pizza Hut mash-up combines two of the most beloved foods of all-time: grilled cheese and pizza.

Pizza Hut’s new Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza features extra gooey cheddar and mozzarella cheese stuffed in and baked onto the crust. To finish off the grilled cheese crust, it is topped with toasted breadcrumbs and melted butter for the ultimate grilled cheese experience.

Appearance: At first it seemed like regular pizza, until I took a look at the crust. It was glistening there was so much butter. Yum! And it was covered in melted cheddar cheese and crispy breadcrumbs. I can honestly say I’ve never tried breadcrumbs on my pizza —  until now.

Taste: The pizza itself is just average. The crust is kind of floppy and isn’t really strong enough to hold all of the toppings. But the sauce is zesty and — my favorite part about Pizza Hut pizza — the pepperonis are crispy around the edges. It’s no pan pizza, but the flavors are still there. Now onto the stuffed crust, because that’s the real star of this pizza. First, I love the cheese baked on top of the crust, it gives it a nice crispy texture instead of just being soggy. And the breadcrumbs added a delicious crunch that I’ve never experienced before on a pizza. I was a little bit worried about the mixture of cheeses stuffed inside the crust, because cheddar melts completely differently than mozzarella, and I’m happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The cheese is melty and stringy when you pull the crust apart, but still has that smooth texture we usually find in stuffed crusts. And let me tell you, that crust was STUFFED with cheese, like, there was more cheese than bread. Deliciousness! The cheddar taste is a welcome alternative to the straight mozzarella stuffed crust pizzas, too.

Pros: I loved the buttery breadcrumbs on this pizza — they were perfectly crisp and gave the pizza an uncommon crunch. And the cheddar cheese — it was melty, gooey goodness.

Cons: Because melted butter is drizzled on the crust, this pizza is a little greasier than usual. What this thing really needs is a side of tomato soup!
