Review: Pizza Hut - Cheesy Bites Pizza

Pizza Hut's Cheesy Bites Pizza recently made its limited-time return to the Pizza Hut menu and having never tried it before, I decided to remedy that oversight and purchased one large with pepperonis for $11.99 this time around.

The Cheesy Bite Pizza is an odd-looking pizza that takes the standard Pizza Hut Hand-Tossed Pizza and through some nifty folding and cutting, transforms the crust into 28 bite-sized, mozzarella-cheese-filled bread rolls and is served with two plastic cups of marinara sauce i.e. (pizza sauce) for dipping.

The result of all that folding and cutting was pretty tasty; a nice, warm, soft bread with salted, gooey, melted mozzarella cheese at the center. The dough they used had an enjoyable slight sweetness. I wouldn't mind just eating the Cheesy Bites sans the pizza.
Pulling off the Cheesy Bites from the pizza makes for an ugly slice with no crust though.
Interestingly, the pizza seemed to have more pepperonis and sauce than usual. Perhaps it was due to the crust being larger than normal, so that there was the same amount of sauce as a normal large but less surface area for it to cover. There was so much sauce, that some would drip out as I was eating. The concentration of sauce combined with pepperoni also made the pizza a tad on the salty side.
The included marinara sauce was used sparingly since the Cheesy Bites already had some sauce from the pizza and already had a decent amount of salt in both the dough and the cheese.

Overall, I really liked the Cheesy Bites and the rest of pizza was decent as well, if slightly on the too salty side.
