Review: Pizza Hut - Ultimate The Edge Pizza

Pizza Hut's Ultimate The Edge Pizza features a large 14-inch, thin-crust pizza topped with pepperoni, Italian sausage, green peppers, onions, Roma tomatoes, and a garlic and herb seasoning to the pizza's edge.

It carries a suggested price of $12.99 but it cost me $14.99 (plus $1.12 service fee) here in the Los Angeles area.

The "Ultimate" topping combination seems to be a variation of Pizza Hut's "Supreme" (pepperoni, seasoned pork, beef, mushrooms, green bell peppers, and red onions). You miss out on the mushrooms but get a similar seasoned flavor with the Italian sausage and the additional tang of the tomatoes. Each topping came through distinctly without any one overpowering the others.

The garlic and herb seasoning contributes a light bit of garlic and herby notes without an appreciable amount of added salt (unlike Papa John's very salty Special Seasoning).

The thin crust is mostly the same as Pizza Hut's Thin-N-Crispy crust, save for the lack of end crust (although the Thin-N-Crispy has fairly little end crust compared to Pizza Hut's other crust options, which means you're not actually getting that much more toppings by The Edge's lack of end crust). It has the same crispy, cracker bread texture--like if you toasted a thick piece of lavash. It's an interesting crust that I've only ever encountered at the Big Four pizza chains and is notable in that, regardless of the chain, the thin crust has the same exact texture.

Overall, Pizza Hut's Ultimate The Edge Pizza was enjoyable with a solid crispy crust that held up well to the sauce, cheese, and other toppings. On the other hand, it doesn't feel or taste all that different from buying a Supreme Thin-N-Crispy pizza from the chain regardless of the lack of end crust and added seasoning. What you really end up getting is a discount on a large specialty pizza.
