Great News! The Pizza Hut Big New Yorker pizza is back! We couldn’t wait to taste this pizza, which was so popular back in the 1990s. We want to tell you all about it. Read on to find out if this was a hit with our team.
Pizza Hut Big New Yorker Pizza Review
The Pizza Hut Big New Yorker pizza begins with a hand-tossed crust and a generous coating of marinara sauce, with parmesan and oregano seasoning. A number of options are available for the main toppings. We selected the specialty double pepperoni on the recommendation of the staff.
Our first thoughts were ‘wow’! The pizza is massive at 16 inches, and one slice covers a standard dinner plate. You can see just how big one slice is in this photo:
We found the pizza both easy and fun to eat. Huge slices are perfect for folding in your hand and stuffing your face. The crust has a nice bite to it. There was a generous amount of pepperoni throughout our pizza, ensuring plenty of it in every single bite. Some of the pepperonis were also cupped to give a taste of delicious, crispy edges.
The salty, meaty pepperoni flavor blended well with the sweetness of the marinara and the melty cheese. Hints of oregano and parmesan seasoning came through now and then, which made the pizza even more flavorful. Our team thinks that the pizza was well-seasoned throughout.
Our panel did find the Pizza Hut Big New Yorker pizza a bit greasy. This could have been because of the large amount of pepperoni used, so we can not really complain much about that. Although we find the pizza nice, it did not feel that special. Our Food Rankers panel believes this is due to it being a pizza from a big food chain rather than a pizzeria. If you like Pizza Hut pizza, this pizza is definitely worth checking out.
One reviewer that remembers the Big New Yorker from the 90s described the taste test as “pure nostalgia”.
The Pizza Hut Big New Yorker pizza is available for a limited amount of time from participating outlets. It costs $13.99 on special, although prices may vary by location.
Summary and Rating
Our team liked a lot of things about Pizza Hut Big New Yorker pizza, including the large, foldable slices. The pepperoni-packed, seasoned filling was also a winner for our Food Rankers crew. Marinara sauce, cheese, parmesan, and oregano all played a part but allowed the pepperoni to be the star of the pizza show.
Having so much pepperoni did make the pizza feel a bit greasy, and the whole thing had a bit of a generic pizza chain feel to it. That said, most of our reviewers would order this again.
- Huge pizza slices
- Generous amount of pepperoni
- Good flavor balance
- 90s nostalgia
- A bit greasy
- Generic food-chain feeling
