    WOW!!! That is a FULL WHOLESALE change of the menu. At least they are keeping the meat lovers pizza.

    Are they really trying to go more upscale with the new menu options.

  2. Sascha says:

    Definitely worth at least one try.

  3. MP says:

    No thanks. I’ll stick going to the local pizzerias where the cheese is 1/4″ thick & actually makes it to the edge.
    Yeah that’s what my pizzas have been missing: chicken & meatballs.

  4. Andi says:

    If there was mayo on the list, I’d believe Pizza Hut was beginning to turn Japanese. But all I can think is how these options are yet another way for them to mess up my pizzas. Love the taste, but I hate that I play Russian roulette every time I order.

  5. Justin ST says:

    This could be an epic mistake. They forgot that this is Pizza Hut, not the local indie pizza place. If anything, they could have improved the atmosphere and hired better servers. I know a few locations that have the sketchiest folks working there.

  6. Flora says:

    Sounds amazing, can’t wait until Nov 19th to try this!

  7. Mike S says:

    Any new sides? Mozz sticks perhaps?

  8. Pimousse says:

    Really stepping up their game.. I’d still stick a local chain. PH is so stingy with the cheese, it barely covers half the pizza.

    Wondering if they’ll “allow” the crust flavors on anything but their ‘hand-tossed’ – might actually give flavor to the pan pizza, apart from just oil flavored.

  9. Raiders757 says:

    Instead of this bloated menu that screams of nasty frozen dough and epic overkill/fail, why not just go back to the making dough in store and offer fresher locally grown ingredients? Concentrate on better pizza instead of all the distraction. Sorry Pizza Hut, but the only chain I’ll order from is Donatos(Which I’m lucky enough to have the only one in my region right down the road from where I live). Pepsi/Yum Brands has destroyed what used to be a half way decent pizza chain.

    • Robert says:

      Anyone who thinks Pizza Hut used to be great in comparison to what they are now clearly formed their glowing opinion when they were, like, six years old. Also, do you ever like anything?

  10. samantha says:

    Wow, that’s Dominos level desperation.

  11. Jonathan Wayne says:

    Looks really good, I am glad that they are making a real effort to provide something different.

  12. Scrape says:

    Can’t really see this working, as it seems to be a serious overreaction in the wrong direction. It is almost like they are trying to compete with California Pizza Kitchen, which isn’t really pizza anyway.
    I wonder if all them new crusts will be frozen, like their current crusts?

    The problem with Pizza Hut is that their core product has been flagging for years and years, with their reaction being to shove more crappy cheese and other junk folded into the crust. The downfall began with losing the fresh dough made in the store. All of The Huts competitors use FRESH dough. While not always made in-store, it isn’t a preformed frozen puck, either. Last time I had a pan pizza from them (quite a while ago), the center of the dough was still cold. Haven’t gotten once since. Their sauce is so acidic now, it gives you indigestion. And the stuff they call “cheese” will have you spending some quality time with your bathroom. It is about quality now, not quantity. You need to get the basics right before you can venture into the odd and make it work.

    And when you signature product has been thoroughly bested by Domino’s, and at a better price, you have lost your way.

    Most of their dine-in restaurants are old, grungy, and just worn out. Their ‘buffet’ is a joke with one or two pies out at a time, and the salad bar pretty much has just lettuce on it now. Cici’s does a much better job…and guess what. THEY USE STORE MADE DOUGH!!!!

    And what of the oddball ingredients? I’m thinking it is all going to be frozen and pre-packaged in order to keep things in stock. Bad move. Same low quality stuff with different and odd flavors that will not sell. You need to know your market, Hut. You created it, why abandon it?

    • Jonathan Wayne says:

      That’s a fair assessment, but Dominos used to be utterly terrible and they did a pretty good job of turning it around so I don’t see why Pizza Hut can’t. I would like to believe that if they would put this much effort into revamping their menu, they would make a move to fresh dough also. I guess we will have to see.

      • Scrape says:

        Yep. That is the perfect example. Domino’s used to be bottom of the list, but they focused on their core product and rebuilt it from the ground up. Now, I would classify it as the best chain delivery pizza you can get (around here, anyway).
        But they didn’t add a bunch of junk so the menu is indecipherable while not really fixing what the problem was in the first place.

    • MP says:

      I get Pizza Hut emails on a daily basis, telling me to buy their crappy pizza & chicken wings. Maybe what they were doing wasn’t working very well. To me, cheese is very important to a pizza & there should be a lot of it – and Pizza Hut is notoriously skimpy on cheese. Looking at these pizzas, it looks like they’re trying to overload the pizza with cheaper ingredients & the Skinny Flavor looks like it has no cheese at all! The 7-Alarm Fire is just an overkill of peppers. Many of these concoctions come off more like sub sandwiches than pizzas.

  13. Zachary Jacob Zblewski says:

    I’m interested in trying the Sriracha pie, but I hope this doesn’t spell the end of Pizza Hut due to customer confusion.

  14. Rusty Shackleford says:

    Are they actually going to use fresh dough made in-store rather than shipped frozen dough circles? I believe they’re the last of the big 4 chains; pizza hut, papa johns, little caesars, domino’s; that uses frozen dough still.

    That being said, I’ve always liked their sauce the best out of said 4, but the others look interesting I guess. They’ve always been a bit restrictive with toppings compared to the others as well, but I’m not really seeing any that stand out.

    The sauce drizzle thing interesting though, a departure from the usual same-flavor dips of garlic butter and such.

  15. John says:

    All those sauces and they didn’t add a pesto sauce?

  16. Kayleigh says:

    i actually sat on a market research panel for these a few months ago. Garlic buttery crust = delicious. All the other crust toppings s = stay away. Seriously.

  17. shthar says:

    Good god. It was tough enough when I worked there and they introduced some goofy gus pizza for a couple of months.

    God help the poor bastards that have to put all this together.

    • Raiders757 says:

      I worked for them back in the 80’s and remember being trained to make the Priazzo. It was actually a pretty awesome creation and we were excited to make it. This new menu? I can only imagine it added to all the other unnecessary garbage on their menu, that it will truly become a pain in the rear to work there and the quality will tank even further. In my day all we had to worry about was Pan Pizza, Thin and Crispy, Spaghetti, bread sticks, and later on The Priazzo. All from dough made in store.

  18. Bob in Texas says:

    After all this we will still not be able to get Taco Pizza??? What a bunch of idiots. I have not ordered Pizza Hut in 10 years and still will not.

  19. DuhMe says:

    Some of the new sauces seemed to have made it here early and they are charging $1.17 extra for them when used with coupons at least. I didn’t try to add up a pizza at regular prices with the new sauce.

  20. […] for the heads-up that Pizza Hut has rebranded their breadsticks as Flavor Sticks.  The Pizza Hut menu makeover happens nationwide on Wednesday, but Justin’s local Pizza Hut in Nashville, TN has Flavor […]
