What is a stuffed crust at Pizza Hut?
The beloved Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza is a treat for cheese enthusiasts. It features a mouthwatering surprise – mozzarella cheese stuffed into the crust of the pizza dough. To make it even more delectable, Pizza Hut adds extra cheese, marinara sauce, and your favorite pizza toppings on top of the cheese-filled crust. When baked to perfection, the cheese melts, creating a truly delightful pizza experience.
Introduced in 1995, Pizza Hut’s original stuffed crust pizza became an instant hit. Its popularity led many other pizza restaurants to imitate this cheesy creation. While taste can be subjective, we thoroughly enjoyed the addition of melted mozzarella cheese sticks to the plain pizza crust, though it did make the pizza slightly more greasy.
How much does a stuffed crust Pizza Hut pizza cost?
The price of a Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza varies depending on the location. For example, at the Pizza Hut near me, a large pepperoni stuffed crust pizza costs $20.84. Keep in mind that stuffed crust pizzas are considered a premium option, costing an extra $3 per pizza. The supreme stuffed crust pizza is priced at $24.49, while the cheese pizza with a cheese-filled crust is priced at $18.69.
However, you can often find great deals on Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizzas to save some money. At the time of writing, the large pepperoni stuffed crust pizza was on sale for just $16.99 at my local Pizza Hut, without the need for a specific coupon. It’s worth mentioning that the stuffed crust option is available for most large pizzas on the Pizza Hut menu. These 8-slice pizzas are approximately 14 inches in diameter (35.6 cm). Please note that stuffed crust is not available for medium, extra large, or personal pan pizzas.
What is the difference between Pizza Hut pan and stuffed crust?
No, the Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza is not a pan pizza. Unlike the stuffed crust pizza, the Pizza Hut original pan pizza crust is not filled with cheese. The pan pizza is Pizza Hut’s most popular crust option and features a thick and fluffy inside with a crispy outside. On the other hand, Pizza Hut’s hand-tossed pizza crust is a more traditional option and is thinner than the pan pizza.
Make Your Own Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust at Home
Craving that cheesy goodness but can’t make it to your nearest Pizza Hut? Luckily, you can recreate the stuffed crust experience in your own kitchen. Simply stuff your homemade pizza crust with string cheese before baking. For best results, I recommend using a homemade pizza dough made with flour and slightly less yeast than usual. Store-bought pizza dough may rise too much around the cheese while baking, affecting the final result.
