It’s seems as though the well has run dry with new and inventive pizzas. Creative ideas such as “stuffed crust pizza” are great, but these gimmicks come and go all the time. The big 3…Pizza Hut, Domino’s and Papa John’s continuously duke it out for pizza supremacy. Pizza Hut looks to take an edge with their P’Zone.
As I’m sure everyone knows, the P’Zone is simply a variety of calzone. Weighing in at around 1.07 pounds, the P’Zone (introduced in 2002) makes itself known as a heavyweight. Printed on the side of the box is a caution of “Heavy Lifting Required”. Each P’Zone is made with a folded 12-inch traditional crust, a layer of sliced mozzarella cheese and a choice of three different ingredient combinations: (Pepperoni) jam packed with pepperoni; (Meaty) includes pepperoni, sausage, seasoned beef and ham; (Classic) sausage with green peppers and red onions. Each P’Zone is served with a generous portion of marinara sauce. A nice change from the standard pizza, the P’Zone is more of a personal item than a shareable. At a price tag of $6.99 for one or $12.99 if you order two, the P’Zone has recently gone up in price by at least a dollar.
Fun fact about the P’Zone, competitive eating champion Joey Chestnutt currently holds the world record of eating 4.82 pounds (4 and 1/2 P’Zones) in 6 minutes. Watch the video. All 3 P’Zone options offer something to satisfy your hunger while pleasing your taste buds. I believe whether you choose the Pepperoni, Meaty or Classic you are assured to be filled up and happy.
- Pros– Flavorful crust. Satisfies a big hunger. 3 filling options. Side of marinara sauce.
- Cons– Recent price increase. No customization.
