Review: Pizza Hut - Spicy Sicilian Hand-Tossed Pizza

Pizza Hut's Spicy Sicilian Hand-Tossed Pizza is one of their specialty pizza and features toppings of beef, Italian sausage, onions, and jalapenos.

As with most of their specialty pizza, a large will run you $12.

Here in the U.S., normally when you order a "Sicilian pizza," you typically get a square pizza pie with a fairly thick crust (if you google "Sicilian pizza," you'll see what I mean). Just as a forewarning, that's not what you're going to get from Pizza Hut. I have no idea why they call it a Sicilian pizza at all.
While I like Pizza Hut's hand-tossed better than their pan pizza, it's very vanilla; I guess that's what it takes to be #1 in the pizza game. The crust is too dense with no sizable air pockets and is a bit dry. Additionally, it's fairly bland with a slight bit of sweetness. It's crusty but not the right crusty.

As for the Spicy Sicilian, there's not much pizza sauce and the ground beef and Italian sausage somewhat indistinguishable from one another in taste as well as texture. They could have just put one or the other and I don't think I'd be able to tell.
I did like that the onions added a nice change of texture and sweetness and the jalapenos added the occasional spot of heat.

Overall, this was a "miss" for me. I'd rather go with a Supreme and sprinkle on red pepper flakes for heat.

  1. am I the only one who has delays with your posts? I've checked your website this weekend and saw nothing new until the sonic announcements and when I was scrolling down I saw this post that says it came on wednesday when I never saw it before today

  2. he must be singling you out because this post is on the third page for me.  which now that you mention it, his reviews of the entire menu of the revamped burger king menu is riveting, nevermind his tour de force, the reviews for dave's big and juicy hamburgers

  3. Don't forget the awesome reviews of all the new Sonic Dogs. Poor Nick is really missing out!

  4. i pity him, i truly do, i might even start a brandeating jr. where I just post screen caps of all the most recent brandeating reviews

  5. All I did was ask a simple question. No need to be tools about it.

  6. Sorry about that. I think I posted sometime during the weekend but back dated it. So it's nothing on your end.

  7. To be fair, we just gave you a simple answer... in a sarcastic way, but it gets the job done. Sorry if you were offended, I thought it was harmless fun. I mean come on, can you really take the term "tour de force" seriously, this is fast food after all!

  8. I knew you guys were messing around but it has happened to me a few times in which he back dated posts making me feel as if I had some sort of delay or something among those line
