Review: Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza from Pizza Hut

By now you should know that calling the new Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza from Pizza Hut a “pizza” is misleading.  Let’s not get into what makes a pizza and what doesn’t.  Let’s just be clear that the Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza from Pizza Hut is a pretty mediocre Hot Pocket.Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza HutPizza Hut describes their new Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza like this:

Four baked jumbo squares of toasty sharp-cheddar Cheez-It crust stuffed with cheese and served with marinara dipping sauce.

These sucked.  Let’s review:Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza HutI was extremely late with my acceptance of Cheez-It crackers.  I used to consider them overrated and boring and now I can’t leave a grocery store without them.  When I heard Pizza Hut was doing a Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza, I thought the idea (on paper) was great.  Visually, Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza is awesome.  I loved the familiar red box and the four “pizza” squares looked like giant stuffed Cheez-It crackers.  Unfortunately that’s about where my praise ends and the letdown begins.  The Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza was extremely dry (thank goodness for the marinara). It didn’t have enough of that sharp cheesy flavor found in Cheez-It crackers.  The cheese center had an unimpressive melt… barely any melt to be more accurate.  An order of Pizza Hut’s Cheese Sticks is above and beyond Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza and that’s a shame.  Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza HutAt a price of $6.99, it’s about what’s to be expected from a side item value perspective.  To be fair, it’s a decent amount of food for the price, but that doesn’t really mean much when you struggle to finish it all.Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza HutI loved the presentation of Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza.  Everything was good to go until my first bite.  It’s a lackluster side item that I can’t see myself buying again.  If there was a Cheez-It tie-in with Pizza Hut’s P’Zone, we might have some promise.

Pros: Packaging. Looks like giant Cheez-It crackers.

Cons: Super dry and not cheesy enough. Weak cheese melt.

    Thanks for the review and saving me the trouble this. Just wish Pizza Hut would make a good pizza and lay off the gimmicks.

  2. Johnnyboy says:

    I was excited for this, thanks for the review. I may still try it so I can tell people in 30 years from now, that I had this and show pictures. Lol

    Fantastic how this product fails as a cheese on top of cheese gimmick when those loaded Doritos bites you got from the frozen food aisle that tasted like odd preservatives at least had that flavor.
