When eating a cheesesteak, you’re guaranteed to get some steak in EVERY bite because it’s loaded with meat. But that isn’t the case with Pizza Hut’s new Cheesesteak Pizza.
The limited time offering comes with Alfredo sauce, green bell peppers, onions, parmesan oregano seasoning, mozzarella cheese, and Pizza Hut’s new grilled sirloin steak strips on your choice of crust.
The sirloin steak strips are easy to chew, somewhat meaty-tasting, and lightly seasoned with something that reminds me of what’s in the chain’s Italian sausage, but their flavor doesn’t excite my taste buds as much as pepperoni or Italian sausage. Plus, as I mentioned in the opening, there’s not enough of them on the pizza to get the cheesesteak-inspired flavors in every bite. Even after some minor rearranging of toppings to spread the meat a bit more evenly across my pizza’s face, there were still many bites that were sans steak.
Maybe the person who made my pizza was being a little stingy or having a bad day, or perhaps that’s how many there are supposed to be because I imagine adding more steak would increase the price to a higher aMOOunt. (Sorry, horrible steak joke.) Unfortunately, if you think you can fix this by getting more meat, there doesn’t seem to be an option to add extra steak when ordering online.
The meatless bites were okay because the garlicky Alfredo sauce, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan oregano seasoning are flavorful enough that it’s not like eating a pizza’s end crust. But overall, the green bell peppers, onions, and seasoned steak make my taste buds think I’m eating a less flavorful supreme pizza.
Pizza Hut’s Cheesesteak Pizza is a nice change of pace-kind of pizza, but its flavor didn’t wow me. But it did make me yearn for a supreme pizza. Because when eating one, there’s a better chance I’d get some meat with almost every bite, much like an actual cheesesteak.
