I took the opportunity to order a pizza last night from Pizza Hut. I decided to try the twisted crust. I was told that the crust was similar to their hand tossed crust only they twist breadsticks to for the crust. I place my order for it with double pork sausage.
The twisted bread stick looked very good. I couldn't wait to try it.
You can see where they laid it on the pizza dough to bake it right into the crust.
So I pulled it apart and....yuck. Talk about unappetizing. Where they laid it has no pizza sauce, no topping under it and because it was laying right on the naked crust it did not brown when baking. It looks uncooked but it did feel cooked, not dough-y.
I tore off a small piece of the top that I peeled off and tried it. Bland. There is not hardly any seasoning on the breadstick like there is on an order of breadsticks. And again, because it was laying on dough, the bottom is not brown or crisp. It is actually a little soggy.
So next I tried a bite of the pizza. Just let me say that the "amost like hand tossed" dough was NOTHING like hand tossed dough. If anything, it was more like the fat on a piece of meat. Very tough to chew and very unappetizing to look at. Needless to say, I didn't make it past the first bite.
The whole experience was very disheartening. And thought I love Pizza Hut and eat it all the time, this new pizza has me so turned off that I doubt I go back for a long time.
So do I recommend the new twisted crust? NO WAY!
