I heard that Pizza Hut had recently unveiled a new gluten free pizza in their stores and I was eager to try it. Growing up, Pizza Hut was my all-time favorite!! There was the Book It program for reading, our weekly family Friday night pizza party complete with TGIF, volunteering with my friends at the museum center and eating pan pizza in the lobby.
My general consensus with pizza is that it what really separates brands isn't always the crust, but the cheese and the toppings. Of the two "mainstream" pizza brands I've tried - Larosas and Donatos - the gluten-free pizza tastes pretty spot on to the original. I suspected that Pizza Hut would follow suit.. I placed the order and we patiently waited for our pizzas to arrive...
I loved that they use a standout box to separate the pizza. I've had issues with other restaurants accidentally sending a non-gluten free pizza and totally forgetting to look for the small gluten free sticker on the box. I knew the Udi's crust would be a hit - Donato's also uses an Udi's made crust - plus, let's be honest, it's the same crust I buy at the grocery store.
It wasn't perfect though. My biggest complaint was that the crust was burnt around the edges. I also disliked that the pizza was on the retail sized Udi's crust. I didn't expect the gluten-free pizza to be the same size as a large pizza, but for almost $15, I was expecting it to be a little larger.
Overall, I rate it a solid B! I would definitely order it again and if the crust wasn't burnt, it would have moved up into the B+ category.
Have you tried Pizza Hut's gluten-free pizza? What were your thoughts?
