News: Pizza Hut - New P'Zolo

The Pizza Hut answer to the common sub sandwich is the new P'Zolo. The P'Zolo comes in three different varieties: Meat Trio, Buffalo, and Italian Steak. Regardless of the flavor, each P'Zolo comes wrapped in fresh-baked pizza dough topped with a sprinkle of Asiago cheese and your choice of Ranch or Marinara dipping sauce.

The price on and advertising for these are aimed straight at Subway's Footlongs with each P'Zolo priced at $3 or two for $5. The tagline accompanying ads is "See ya subs. This is the P'Zolo."

The Meat Trio P'Zolo comes filled with cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and ham.

The Buffalo Chicken P'Zolo features chunks of white meat chicken, cheese, and buffalo seasoning.

Ordering the Italian Steak P'Zolo will give you marinated steak, cheese, mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers.

I'm not sure how they came up with the name. I've never heard of a pizzolo so I looked around for info. Apparently, a pizzolo is a little-known Italian dish of stuffed pizza or flatbread. The pictures I've found make it look like a layered, but relatively flat, pizza with both savory or sweet versions. Regardless, it seems fairly unrelated to Pizza Hut's P'Zolo which is more of a sauceless pizza burrito, no?

  1. I tried the steak. It was OK. It could use more cheese, and the bread was not that great. Still, for $3 it was a good value and very filling.

  2. How big was it compared to a subway sub?

  3. I got two of these today and ey measured in at 7.5 inches long by 3 inches wide. They put them both in the box with the marinara sauce in a breadstick box, if that helps. Both were quite good, I liked the steak a little better.

  4. Just had my first PZolo The Italian Steak [I think they are trying to make it taste like a philly cheese steak] and it was pure Pizza Hut. Bland, tasteless, not enough meat OR cheese...but I guess for only 3 bucks, its worth it?? NOT better than a Dominos sammy tho, and Pizza HUt is falling farther and farther behind Dominos....who is now awesome. Just sayin...I used to be ONLY Pizza Hut...now, ONLY dominos.

  6. I picked up 4 p'zolos tonight: 2 buffalo chickens and 2 Italian steak.   My first thought was a wish: I wished I knew which store sold those p'zolos advertised in promo picture.   

    My Pizza Hut disappointments measured about 6 to 7 inches in length, 1 and 1/2 to 2 inches wide, and 1/2 inch deep.  Not bad except they were mostly bread and cheese. 

    The 'buffalo' chicken p'zolos had about 8 small cubes of plain chicken.  With the absence of any spice, I don't know what was 'buffalo' about this cheese stick of an appetizer - unless it's Pizza Hut thinking, "How can we buffalo our customers out of more of their money?"

    The good news is that the green pepper filler in my Italian steak was thicker than the bread.  The bad news is that the bread was thicker than the layer of meat spread sparing throughout this bread roll.

    All in all, $5 for 2 is not 'zolo of a price. I would put these new offerings from Pizza Hut is at the tasty, almost-overpriced edge of food-for-value scale.

    Oh, you do get your choice of marinara OR ranch.  Note the "OR".  When I asked for both, the woman behind the counter looked at me as if I had just asked for McDonald's fries.

    Anyway, I hope this little comment helps!

  7. I work at pizza hut. Employees get 50% off anything in store so for $1.50 a pzolo isn't a HORRIBLE deal, if you like this kind of stuff. All in all, it taste the same as everything else they serve. Greasy, proccessed and fat. P.s. the pzolo "bread" is just the medium pan pizza dough stretched out and wrapped up. P.p.s. what kind of name is pzolo???

    1. Yeah, I saw the guy making it. It seems to take a while. Haha, you should ask your corporate overlords what kind of name is "P'Zolo" in the employee suggestion box.

  13.  Cool, my 1st troll.  Thanks for playing!  Obviously, in my ignorant state, paying $5 FOR a tiny bit of chicken is overpriced, not the $5 part.
