P’Zones Are Officially Coming Back To Pizza Hut Menus

If you’ve been waiting for P’Zones to return to Pizza Hut menus in the USA, your patience has finally paid off.

The cult-favorite take on the calzone is coming to menus nationwide starting today as a part of the chain’s March Madness Lineup. Three flavors of the cheesy dough-filled pockets will be available, including Pepperoni, Meaty, and Supremo. They’ll be served with marinara sauce for dipping.

For those wondering, P’Zones last came back to menus in 2011, when they stuck around for a bit before finally being discontinued. They’ve been on and off the menu since their debut in 2002.

For this release, you can expect the P’Zones to be available at least through the March Madness NCAA tournaments. Pizza Hut didn’t provide a more specific timeline than that, but also isn’t officially calling this a limited-time option. Thus, they could be around for the long haul afterward, so who knows?

P’Zones will be sold individually, but the Pepperoni version will also be part of Pizza Hut’s $5 Lineup as well as on the regular menu.

The Pizzaburger is Everything You Could Want It To Be And More

pizzaburger

Back in 2010, Burger King announced its NY Pizza Burger, which was four times the size of a regular burger, came on a nine-and-a-half inch sesame bun and, at $13 a pop, contained just over 2,500 calories. Despite all the fanfare, however, it was really just an oversized Whopper with cuts in it.

This, on the other hand, is a work of art.

Brought to us by one of Canada’s largest casual dining chains, Boston Pizza, the Pizza Burger is admittedly more like a burger calzone than a pizza burger and comes in two varieties: The Pepperoni & Bacon and the Five-Cheese. The Pepperoni & Bacon features toasted pizza dough surrounding a half-pound prime rib patty with pizza sauce, pepperoni, bacon and mozzarella, and the Five-Cheese envelops the patty with mozzarella, cheddar, feta, asiago and parmesan.

Currently, the Pizzaburger is available at all 345 Boston Pizza locations across Canada from now until June 2, but unfortunately the company, which is known as Boston’s: The Gourmet Pizza, has announced no plans to introduce the menu item in the States, though we all know it totally should.

Come on, it’s a burger in pizza form or a pizza in burger form. Let’s not let Canada have all the fun.

Pizza Hut’s New ‘Overstuffed Pizza’ is Stuffed Crust Meets the P’Zone

As much of a fussy gourmet aficionado I tend to be, I have a guilty soft spot for Pizza Hut’s impossibly greasy pan pizza. While I enjoy stuffing some mozzarella in the crust when I make pizza from scratch, Stuffed Crust Pizza from the chain itself is a gimmick I skipped. Same goes for the more recent P’zone offering.

However, given that I mainly go to Pizza Hut (not that often, I swear) for the crust, their new Overstuffed Pizza is something I would try once, given that it’s basically a pizza with extra crust on top. It looks like a big P’zone, but the inclusion of sauce on the inside of the Overstuffed Pizza might be enough to get me over my bias.

Pizza Hut: Promoting $5 P'Zones

Pizza Hut is rolling out a new campaign pairing a marketable and limited-time-only $5 price tag with their calzone menu item, the P’Zone. The original pricing of the P’Zone ranged from $5.99-$6.99, and the new pricing seems to effect the Pepperoni version, with the Classic and Meaty versions priced at $0.99 above the $5 mark.
