REVIEW: Pizza Hut Big Pizza Sliders

Pizza Hut Pizza Sliders

These Pizza Hut Pizza Sliders are so cute. Wook at how wittle they are. Who’s a wittle pizza? You’re a wittle pizza!

How wittle are each Pizza Slider?

The mini pizzas are 3.5 inches across and about a inch tall. To give you an idea of how big that is, a Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza is six inches in diameter.

Oh, that’s not enough to satisfy your pizza-eating, number-crunching brain?

Well then, according to the Pizza Hut website, a Pizza Hut Pepperoni Personal Pan Pizza weighs 201 grams (or 7.1 ounces) and, according to my heavily used postal scale covered in a thin layer of white powder, one Pizza Hut Pizza Slider topped with cheese and pepperoni weighs 68 grams (or 2.4 ounces). As you can see, there’s a significant difference in size. However, the Pizza Hut Pizza Sliders are available with three or nine pieces. So, if I were to use the power of addition, it turns out three Pizza Sliders weigh 204 grams (7.2 ounces) or roughly the same as a Pizza Hut Pepperoni Personal Pan Pizza.

Math!

With the Pizza Sliders, you’re allowed up to three topping in three different topping combinations. Although, if you want to be complete asshat to a Pizza Hut employee, you can do so by ordering the nine-piece Pizza Hut Pizza Sliders and asking to have each one customized. I’m not an asshat so picked up the nine-piece Pizza Sliders and asked for three pizzas with pepperoni, three with sausage, and the last three with sausage, red onions, and tomatoes.

Pizza Hut Pizza Sliders Back

If you’re familiar with Pizza Hut pizza, then you’ll pretty much know what Pizza Hut Pizza Sliders taste like. The pepperoni and sausage ones I ordered tasted just like regular pepperoni and sausage pizzas from Pizza Hut. Although I thought the crust wasn’t as buttery and crispy as a Pizza Hut Pan Pizza’s crust. Also, each pizza didn’t have much sauce underneath the cheese. If I were to order this again, I’d spend the extra cash and get a dipping sauce to make them a little more exciting.

Overall, Pizza Hut’s Pizza Sliders are good, if you enjoy Pizza Hut pizza because they taste just like Pizza Hut pizza. However, because they taste just like Pizza Hut pizza, they aren’t very noteworthy.

(Nutrition Facts – It’s Pizza Hut pizza, so don’t imagine it’s healthy food.)

Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Adorable. Tastes just like regular Pizza Hut pizza. Three Pizza Sliders are the same weight as a Personal Pan Pizza. Allows you to test different topping combinations. Math!
Cons: Crust less buttery and crispy than Pizza Hut Pan Pizzas. Not very innovative. Didn’t have much sauce under the cheese. Only allowed three different topping combinations. Asshats who ask to customize all nine Pizza Sliders.

*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I pay more for things. You’ll probably pay $10, like most of the country will.

  1. I’ll might pass on this one it seems very greasy.

    I’m not a big fan of Pizza Hut because their pizzas are mostly oily and greasy.

    I could do almost similar idea with a english muffin and save lots of money.

    -Split the english muffin
    -Plop a spoonful of tomato sauce
    -Sprinkle with cheese
    -Top off with toppings I like use sauteed veggies, grilled chicken, sausage, pepperoni
    -Bake in the oven

    Similar as the sliders but healthier and less greasy

  2. Meh. I don’t get it. Plus, Pizza Hut has their “Any pizza $10″ deal in my area right now. [Insert standard Gen-Xers rant about how Pizza Hut was so much better back in the day here. [and yes, it really was.]]

  3. I think these are a fantastic option. $10 and you get 9 servings at the cost of $1.11 per 3.5″ and 1.0″ deep slider. Also you get to order up to 3 toppings in sets of 3. This is a great “sharing” option. For some reason your sliders look a little sad compared to what I receved today. I do wish there was more sauce and it was an accurate description about the crust. I like them maybe 8 out of 10.

  4. So $10 for a $4.50 personal pizza sliced into cute little bit sizes, even though pizza is already sliced up. Wow. And I thought Subway was genius for repackaging the same old thing and adding a jingle to it.

    I’ll go purchase a box of bagel bites and a cheap bottle of vodka.

    1. Actually by said “power of addition” $10=9 sliders=3 personal pizzas so at $4.50 per personal pizza if they did taste comparable its not a bad deal

  5. Haha. I sing the same tune about Pizza Hut. These guys are just too damn expensive for something so oily and crummy. And I use to really like Pizza Hut back in the day.

  6. Not really impressed Pizza Hut is just like Burger King… somone above alluded to it earlier… it used to be soooo much better… they fell off.

  7. I’d imagine this would be nice if you had kids who wanted different toppings. Pan pizzas are $4.99 here so this would be like buying 2 and getting one free. Obviously it’s always a better deal to get a bigger pizza with all the same toppings but this is an option to please everyone.

    And it’s almost always cheaper to make something at home yourself..by that logic going out to eat is always a rip off…

  8. Want to hear some bullshit? In Anchorage, I’d have to pay $18 for 9 sliders, $6 for 3 of them. A large 1-topping pizza is $10. I’ll stick with that.

    1. WHAT?!? Damn! I thought I had it bad on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, but it looks like you have it worse on that huge state in between Russia and Canada. I hope you don’t pay $2 for Taco Bell tacos.

      1. $1.39 gets you the taco shell, small amount of meat, lettuce, and cheese here in Fairbanks, AK.
        Not $2.00, but pretty high for those small things.
        *Just called them today to make sure I had my info correct*

        As for Pizza hut, I used to do the $10 any 1 topping pizza and the 1 liter with bread sticks until they removed that 1 liter combo from the site. Here they have a $15 minimum order, and after the delivery charge, it came out to $19.75.

        Anyway, Thanks Marvo for your review, just saved me $18. :D

  9. I tried these about 4 days ago for the first time. Tasty, but I was debating trying them for a week. The email ads kept describing them as “Big” Pizza Sliders, and the images revealed that they were the opposite of big. Plus, they’re not sliders. A slider is a mini-burger, not a mini-pizza. All in all, they’re not too bad. You’re paying (currently as of 02/12/2013) about the price of a medium pizza for about the same amount of food. I don’t get the point of them, though. Especially if you get the 9 of them. It’s easier to order a whole pizza, which they already had available. It’s as if they were invented just to ripoff Red Baron mini pizzas, which they copy completely. The kids should like them. I’ll stick to pizza-size pizza. :-)

  10. I’m not sure if I’m gonna rush right out and buy these “sliders” after seeing the pictures above. Doesn’t look that appetizing to me!

    I would to share with y’all that the term “sliders” was conceived while I was in the Navy about 30 years ago. The hamburgers we ate were about 50% fat. They came in boxes containing a gross and started out about 4 inches in diameter. By the time they were cooked, the hamburgers has cooked-down to about 2 inches and were just running in grease – therefore the name “sliders” ‘cuz they just slid down your throat! A heart attack on a bun! Those were the good ol’ days when I didn’t care what I ate!

    1. The term “slider” is older than that. My grandfather, who was also in the Navy, told me that during WWII, they called their extremely greasy burgers they were served “sliders.” I think it’s definitely a Navy thing, but much older than that.
