5 Favourite Dishes from Pizza Hut’s New Menu (With Healthier Options)
What are your memories with Pizza Hut? For me, it’s definitely one of my favourite lunch places during school days. Constantly striving to bring more to the table for everyone to enjoy, Pizza Hut has launched their new menu featuring not just their well-loved classics, but also a whole lot more new dishes for the discerning tastebuds.
Here are our five favourite dishes from Pizza Hut’s Menu:
1. Shrimp & Spinach Pizza
Besides keeping the classics like Pepperoni Pizza and Hawaiian Pizza, Pizza Hut has got also other great pizza flavours like Shrimp & Spinach Pizza for the shrimp lovers. It is adorned simply for the colourful ingredients – succulent spiced shrimps, baby spinach and sweet pineapple rings baked in a blend of rich pesto and tomato. The thick pizza distinctly highlights the rich flavours of pesto and tomato sauce, allowing the sauce to coat the dough well. To experience a cheese explosion in every bite, top up another $6 for regular pizza to enjoy a combination of mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar cheese stuffed in the crust.
The dough is made in at least 2 batches per day. The chefs start work as early as 7am! No overnight dough is used, whatever that is leftover will be discarded. While having your pizza, don’t forget to order some sides such as Sweet ‘N’ Spicy Drumlets ($7.90 for 6 pcs or $10.90 for 10 pcs) and Salmon Croquette ($7.90 for 5 pcs).
2. Hut’s Chicken Pie & Mash
Hut’s Chicken Pie & mash consist of simple and standard ingredients, but how they taste depends on their preparation. The Hut’s Chicken Pie & Mash ($13.50) features creamy mashed potato stacked with a layer of buttery puff pastry and together with traditional chicken and mushroom casserole in creamy alfredo sauce. Here, the mashed potatoes are thick and smooth. The dish may be a bit heavy going down alone, but satisfying and tasty when shared with friends. But if you prefer something more local, go for the Curry Chicken Pie & Mash ($13.50). It comes in a colourful plate of chunky potato cubes, tasty curry chicken, onions and eggs served in an open pie.
3. Pulled Beef Penne (EDITOR’S CHOICE)
Pizza Hut’s Executive Chef counts the Pulled Beef Penne ($14.90) as her current menu favourite. Why? Not only is the pulled beef perfectly tender and richly flavoured but it also beautifully contrasts against the texture of the cabanossi sausages. Top up additional $6 with a soup of the day, salad and soft drink; or $5 with a soup of the day and soft drink.
Slow cooking the meat takes hours, for the meat must become tender and contribute its silkiness to the sauce to coat with the pasta. Not only it’s Pizza Hut’s Executive Chef favourite dish, it was our favourite dish for that night too. We like it so much that we ordered a second serving to share okay! I love how the aromatic sauce coats each penne beautifully with sausages lifting the flavours even more.
Pizza Hut is committed to serving the best ingredients. That’s why the salads are made from the freshest garden greens, the pastas from 100% wheat semolina and dishes such as the Beef Goulash are made from 100% Australian beef.
4.Tropical Dream Pizza
Slay the fat by opting for whole-grain rice instead of pilaf rice in the Curry Zazzle Baked Rice or in place of French fries with the Roasted Spring Chicken.
What’s more, 3 slices of the regular-sized Hand Stretched Thin pizzas count less than 500 calories, no matter what toppings you choose. No wonder all the ladies who ate with me love it! These fresh, hand stretched thin crust are specially made with lighter dough that brings out the full flavours of the toppings.
The Tropical Dream pizza ($20.90) is a sunny combination of chunky honey chicken ham and roasted pineapples with roasted onions, cream cheese and a drizzle of mango puree. To me, it is like the dessert version of Hawaiian pizza with amazing mini-bursts of flavours! The chicken ham was really chunky with a good bite and the tangy mango puree makes it super refreshing. Cream cheese is very soft and it has a tendency to burn if it was baked for a long time. But I must say that Pizza Hut has done it really well and the smoothness from the cream cheese kinda gel the flavours together. The pizza dough was thin and crispy, it doesn’t feels heavy at all.
The next time when I am back here, I would love to try Wild About Mushrooms ($20.90) with mouth-watering medley of velvety truffle mushrooms topped with cherry tomatoes and fresh rocket leaves on creamy alfredo sauce which is also one of their healthier options. Or, if you are a cheese lover, go for the Quattro Cheese Deluxe ($20.90) featuring savoury chicken pepperoni baked on a bed of mozzarella, parmesan, cream cheese and cheddar, topped with turkey bacon and fresh rocket leaves.
5. Apple Tart with Ice Cream
Calling all dessert lovers! Pizza Hut introduced a new dessert – Apple Tart with Ice Cream ($7.50). Made upon order, what arrived is a tempting plate of apple tart with buttery crust, chunks of green apples, cinnamon sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A perfect combination of hot and cold, I love its buttery crust the most!
