Review: Pizza Hut - Mozzarella Poppers Pizza

Pizza Hut's Mozzarella Poppers Pizza features 16 breaded and fried mozzarella-stuffed bites lining its crust. The square-shaped bites are sprinkled with a mix of garlic, onion, parmesan, Italian seasonings, parsley, basil, and oregano. Two cups of marinara sauce are included for dipping.

I bought one topped with pepperoni for $14.99 (plus tax and a 5 percent service charge. For whatever reason, Pizza Hut is the only one of the four major pizza chains that charges a service fee here in California, while their prices and are also slightly higher than competitors).

For the most part, Mozzarella Poppers Pizza is like if you bought a hand-tossed pizza from Pizza Hut and a separate order of Mozzarella Poppers (if they sold those as a side). If you break it down, it's about $10 for the pizza and $5 for the Mozzarella Poppers, which isn't bad at all.

I've written about their hand-tossed pizza before so I'll keep it short: the crust was lightly crisp and soft in the middle. There's a light sweetness to it's uncommon to pizza crust. The pepperoni was crisp but didn't have all that much flavor beyond salt.

The Mozzarella Poppers had a light and crispy breaded shell with a strong oregano aroma to it. The breading on the bottom of each popper was notably softer than the rest since that's where they attached to the crust. Inside, they were fairly plump with melted cheese that stretched fairly well. The cheese was mostly salty but the breading offered up a nicely seasoned herby flavor that goes well with the sweet and tangy marinara dipping sauce.

When it comes down to it, Pizza Hut's Mozzarella Poppers Pizza was fairly good on both the pizza and mozzarella poppers fronts but would have been slightly better if they were separate as both the crust and breading where they're stuck together would have been crispier.
