REVIEW: Pizza Hut Supremo Overstuffed Pizza

Pizza Hut Overstuffed Pizza

When I saw the stuff in the Pizza Hut Overstuffed Pizza oozing out of the sides of each slice, I thought they were overstuffed. But when I stuffed the stuff back into a slice of the Overstuffed Pizza, I realized all the stuff equaled to the amount of stuff found on a regular Pizza Hut Pizza. Heck, I believe this entire paragraph is stuffed with more “stuff” and its derivatives than stuff stuffed into Pizza Hut’s Overstuffed Pizza.

The new pizza comes in two varieties — Italian Meat Trio and Supremo. I went with the Supremo because I thought it would be super cool to act like The Fonz by showing two thumbs up, nodding my head repeatedly, and saying, “Ay! Supremo” to my cashier after she thanked me for my business.

Pizza Hut Overstuffed Pizza Closeup

Pizza Hut’s Overstuffed Pizza is 14 inches in diameter and cut into six pieces. The Supremo Overstuffed Pizza is filled with cheese, sauce, Italian sausage, onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms. The top crust layer of the pizza I order was liberally sprinkled with shredded parmesan and an Italian seasoning blend. Wait. Did I say, “liberally sprinkled”? I meant to say, “It looked like a McCormick spice and herb factory blew up on top of it.”

As for the inside of the pizza, there’s so much cheese oozing all over the place that it looked as if a brawl broke out at a fondue party and the cheese fountain was knocked over. While there was a lot of cheese, there wasn’t a lot of sauce. I thought those holes on top were made to let the pizza vent while cooking, but, with this pizza’s lack of sauce, they might be the fang marks of drunk vampires who thought the red stuff in my pizza was blood.

But back to the top crust. It had a strong buttery and herby aroma, and a slight crispness which reminded me of the outer shell of Pretzel Bread Lean Pockets. Sadly, it was also crispier than the bottom crust and the edges which were doughy and chewy. Also, even with herb blast on top of the pizza, the crust didn’t have a strong flavor, making the Overstuffed Pizza taste not that much different than a regular Pizza Hut pizza.

After peeling back the top crust, it was hard to make out the onions, peppers, and mushrooms from each other because all three were mostly shriveled and darkened. Fortunately, their condition didn’t take away their flavor. The amount of Italian sausage was plentiful and they provided that familiar greasy, mild spicy goodness found on other Pizza Hut products.

Pizza Hut’s Overstuffed Pizza is not the worst pizza I’ve had, but I don’t taste a significant difference between it and Pizza Hut’s regular pan pizzas. In fact, I think the extra crust slightly dampens the flavors of the sausage, cheese, veggies, and sad amount of sauce. However, the extra crust does a great job at making me full. Just a slice of the Overstuffed Pizza was filling.

Maybe Pizza Hut’s Overstuffed Pizza didn’t get its name from the amount of ingredients stuffed inside of it. Maybe it got its name because eating more than one piece will make you feel overstuffed.

Purchased at: Pizza Hut
Rating: 5 out of 10
Pros: Tastes similar to a regular Pizza Hut pizza. Lots of cheese. Eating one slice is filling. Lots of sausage.
Cons: Tastes similar to a regular Pizza Hut pizza. Not at all overstuffed. Top crust looked like a McCormick herb factory blew up on it, but didn’t have a strong flavor. Bottom crust and edges were doughy. Not a lot of sauce. Veggies were shriveled beyond recognition. Fights at fondue parties.

*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I tend to pay more for stuff. You will probably be able to get it for much cheaper.

    man, domino’s crispy melt blew this out of the water back in ’07. Too bad its gone now and this crap is all that remains

      I agree. If you buy one in Port Clinton, Ohio…you may as well call it the Un-stuffed pizza. It was pathetic and had very, very, little topping.(should I say filling?)
      That is the norm though with the pizzas at that location. You pay for a large and get maybe half of the toppings that you would get on a small.
      Personally, I’ll stick with Marco’s pizza. The amount and quality far outshine anything that pizza hut puts out now.

    I remember when I first visited Hawaii, on my way back to the US from Okinawa. After two years there, I was so happy to find a Pizza Hut I didn’t care one bit about paying extra for my pizza. They sure do seem to try a lot of gimmicky pizzas though. I may pass on this one.

  3. MeNotYou says:

    It’s called a calzone, and they can’t even do that right.

  4. you don't say? says:

    Looks like someone left an open-box of Pizza on a busy sidewalk.

    Looks like a cow patty.

  6. Alek says:

    The picture of the herbs sprinkled looked like weed at the first glance.

  7. ReviewScout says:

    Everything Pizza Hut makes couldn’t possibly afford to get “overstuffed” as each and every one thing on their menu produces a thick, rubbery and slippery cement-like ball in my stomach.

  8. Q says:

    Haha, at least your toppings kinda spills forth out of the slices. My slices looked like they were hermetically sealed save for the hole on top… the herbs tasted mostly like oregano… they could probably take a page out of Papa John’s book for Italian seasoning.

    What I see here is an Overstuffed pizza that was made really wrong!! I am a pizza hut cook and I make these all day long. Aparently whoever made this pizza does not know what in the heck they are doing. None and I mean NONE of mine have ever looked this way. I am sorry you have had this experience at Pizza Hut. Try going to another store and get one that is made correctly!!

    • Anonymous says:

      Thank you for replying to this. I was going to say the same exact thing. Whoever made their fooddestroyed it. Granted its not the best to make. It can take 10minutes to make just 1. I work at pizza hut as well and our products never come out this way. If it did it would most definitely be relaxed. Sorry for their experience.

  10. Nick says:

    If Pizza Hut would make pizzas like they did 20 years ago when it was actually pretty good for a chain, they wouldn’t need to keep doing gimmicky stuff like this in a weak attempt to stay relevant.

    Tabby: If they’re made from scratch, why are meat trio and supreme the only options? I’d think that’s because they’re pre made and you guys just bake them. Oh, and I’ll send you a lot of money and maybe my TV if you can get me some creamy Italian salad dressing. They got rid of the salad bars around here and I love that stuff :(

  11. Mike says:

    Just bring back the Priazzo. What the Hell is wrong with Pizza Hut nowadays anyway? Their pizza tastes like crap.

  12. Uriah says:

    We got one of each last night. I have to say, it seemed like they were each made by different people. The meat one was a bit undercooked (which I found a tad bit odd, considering how pizza hut cooks pizza), but the supremo was just that: supremo. The only complaint I have about then is how much they fall apart if you aren’t a knife and fork pizza eater. I think I’ll stick to the pzone, but if I was offered one of these, I’d definitely not complain about it.

  13. john says:

    pitiful – what an unworthy heir to the priazzo. why not bring that sumptuous feast back?
