Review: Pizza Hut - Supremo P'Zone

The P'Zone is Pizza Hut's name for their calzones which are available in: Pepperoni, Meaty, and Supremo. I recently picked up a Supremo P'Zone (i.e. "supreme") which comes with Italian sausage, green bell peppers, red onions, and mozzarella cheese folded up in pizza dough and baked.

For a limited-time, Pizza Hut is offering them for an even 5 bucks.

What I like about the P'Zone is the abundance of melted cheese in comparison to the sausage, onions, and peppers. The P'Zone was piping hot and I had to let it sit for a bit so I wouldn't burn my tongue. It's basically a folded pizza without sauce (Pizza Hut included a cup of marinara sauce on the side).

I haven't eaten many calzones but I seem to remember them being stuffed with more food; Pizza Hut's version is a little on the flat side. Still, I like it better than Pizza Hut's hand-tossed or pan pizzas.
The supreme mix of toppings (fillings?) is pretty standard and of decent quality. What I especially liked was the cheese and the crust which got a good, crisp browning and is sprinkled with what appears to be dried herbs (I think it's dried parsley?) and Parmesan.

For $5, Pizza Hut's Supremo P'Zone is not a bad lunch option and one that's on the right side of affordability.

  1. that's good for five dollars?  I could get 5-10 pounds of potatoes for that price.  maybe 5 pounds of potatoes and a couple pounds of pasta and actually have a filling meal

  3. I get your point, but $5 for over 900 calories of something at a pizza place isn't that terrible. They're not exactly tiny, the nutritional info is for half of one.

    You can definitely stretch your dollars further somewhere else, but pizza joints generally cost a little more. When you crave pizza, that price is worth it.

  4. usually the cheaper and lower quality something is, the higher the calorie count. but come on i'm talking about eating 5 pounds of potatoes and 2 pounds of pasta for dinner.

  5. Pizza Hut is really at its best when it is piping hot. 5 minutes south face melting and it is morphs into such a sad sad shadow of hot pizza past.

  6.  This is one of the funniest comparisons I've ever read. I understand that eating 5-10 pounds of potatoes and/or 5 pounds of potatoes and a couple pounds of pasta would be a "filling meal", but how on earth would that be satisfying?

    Do you just sit there and eat a few pounds of potatoes for meals very often?

  8. The Pepperoni P’Zone is limited to 6 thinly sliced pepperoni pieces and most of the time you get less.  The stores are regulated and can not add more than 1 extra order of pepperoni.  That makes a great big ball of dough, and 'dough' is all Pizza Hut is concerned with on this one.  Pizza Hut has basically made a giant loaf of cheap bread and sold it. Save your money and order from the local Italian restaurant that delivers delicious meaty calzones, the extra 3 dollars you may spend will get you 8 to 12 times the stuffing and probably with a lower carbohydrate listing.

    I have posted a Pepperoni P’Zone that was ordered and confirmed with a triple order of pepperoni in it.. .  There were 9 pieces of pepperoni.

  9. That looks pretty ugly, but as you said, they are cheap. You mention the bread... I tend to agree with the review, it's not bad. And then there is a decent amount of cheese, so it's still tasty to me.

    You're totally right about the lack of meat, they should improve that. I'll still take one for $4 on Mondays though, I think you could do worse.
