It’s the way the crust is cooked and eventually crunched into that makes the grilled cheese stuffed crust pizza taste different than a normal stuffed crust pizza. Usually, a stuffed crust pizza is simply chewy and cheesy, while the all-new grilled cheese stuffed crust pizza is crunchy, buttery and obviously very cheesy.
The buttery crust is cooked to a crispy texture, which helps it replicate the bite of a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, while the breadcrumbs help give it an even crunchier exterior texture. More often than not, the breadcrumbs will spill onto the rest of the pizza, which helps smoothen the transitional bites from pizza to crust.
The only thing that could’ve have made this pizza work even more would have been the inclusion of a tomato soup sauce or maybe even a little ketchup. Sure, they could have tossed in a cup of marinara, but I feel that this specific pizza would require something a little more liquified and runny to truly capture that grilled cheese taste.
I’m going to be honest when I say that this new grilled cheese stuffed crust pizza is not for everyone. You really have to ask yourself just how much do you truly enjoy grilled cheese and if you often-times find yourself seeking out stuffed crust instead of traditional hand-tossed style crust, because this pizza is loaded with cheese to the max and then sprinkled with cheese in case you’re worried that there just wasn’t enough to go around.
Also, this is a Pizza Hut pizza, which means the grease levels are high and this thing will soak up any napkin in sight. I’m okay with that, on occasion, but I definitely won’t be finding myself ordering up the grilled cheese stuffed crust pizza whenever I’m craving my favorite meal on the ready. I’ll instead opt for this new pizza type after a long week of work or an intense week of working out, because sometimes you just need to treat yourself with a million calories of good old-fashioned cheese.
Adding topping will help you balance out the cheesiness, but there’s really no real way to hide or get around the fact that this pizza was constructed for the cheese-lovers around the globe.
Pizza Hut’s new Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza is the perfect blend of butter, crunchy and of course, cheesy. It brings the comfort and familiar taste of a grilled cheese sandwich together with their trademark stuffed crust pizza in a way that feels like heaven at first bite. It’ll have you questioning what truly is the right side of the pizza to start biting from, because no matter where you start you’ll be greeted with gooey, stretchy and always satisfying cheese.
