Pizza Hut Detroit-Style Pizza Review

Pizza Hut is bringing it deep-dish and detroit-style with cheesy, crispy crust by adding their Detroit-Style Pizza to the menu again for a limited time. So what makes a Pizza Hut Detroit-Style Pizza? It is a deep-dish pizza with cheese all the way to the edges for a crispy crunch, plenty of pizza toppings, and a premium diced tomato sauce on top.

It comes in 4 varieties, including the option to create your own. We tried the Detroit Double Pepperoni one. We are here to share our thoughts and opinions on our pizza experience with you in this Pizza Hut Detroit-Style Pizza review!

Pizza Hut Detroit-Style Pizza Review

One nice thing is that this pizza is customizable. You can get it in any of these four options and customize it further to your liking;

  • Detroit Double Pepperoni – has both classic pepperoni and crispy cupped pepperoni
  • Detroit Supremo – features Italian sausage, green peppers, and red onions
  • Detroit Meaty Deluxe – toppings consist of crispy cupped pepperoni, Italian sausage, and bacon
  • Create-Your-Own – choose up to five toppings

Here is what our Detroit Double Pepperoni Pizza looked like.

24 ounces tiny red potatoes, or Yukon Gold ▢ 16 ounces baby carrots ▢ 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, or thighs ▢ 21.5 ounces cream of chicken soup, 2-15.75 ounce cans ▢ ½ cup chicken stock ▢ 4 ounces chopped chiles ▢ 1 ounce Ranch seasoning mix Instructions Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and a tablespoon of the Ranch dressing mix. Add the washed baby potatoes and carrots to the slow cooker. Top with the seasoned chicken. Blend the cream of chicken soup, chicken stock, chiles, and remaining Ranch dressing mix until smooth. Pour over the chicken and vegetables. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours. Shred the chicken or break it into chunks with a fork before serving.

Saucy and crispy with loads of pepperoni!

Some of our reviewers were initially skeptical going into the taste test portion of this Pizza Hut Detroit-Style Pizza review. Having the sauce on top of the pizza was new to most of us, but it proved to be better than the skeptics thought it would be. There is plenty of diced tomato sauce on top, which means that things quickly turn messy. It does taste fresh and delicious though.

Underneath all of that sauce is cheese and a double portion of crispy pepperoni. The crunch of the cheesy crust and the crispness of the two types of pepperoni provide great flavor and texture contrast to the sauce topping. It has all the delicious flavor and texture that you would want in a pizza, only in a different arrangement. The pizza tastes great and seems to use quality ingredients. Most of our crew feel like the Detroit-Style Pizza is like a premium upgrade to the standard pizza that most Americans are used to eating.

The only downside is the messiness and the lack of enough cheese for some people. The ads and promotional pictures show a thick layer of melty, stringy cheese, and we wish that ours had been that cheesy. Maybe it is just the way our local Pizza Hut is chooses to make them, but ours had a much thinner layer of cheese. We do appreciate the crispy, cheesy bits of crust we found though!

If you have never had Detroit-Style Pizza, you should try ordering one from your local Pizza Hut. It is a unique pizza-eating experience that we enjoyed, even though ours could have used more cheese and perhaps a little less sauce.

Summary and Rating

It may be messy and different from a regular pizza, but the Detroit Style pizza is quite tasty. We will order it again!

Pros

  • Great flavor
  • Crispy crust
  • Plenty of toppings

Cons

  • Ours needed more cheese and maybe a bit less diced tomato sauce

We hope to have a chance to review some other varieties, and we will definitely add them to this Pizza Hut Detroit-Style Pizza review. If our next one has a different ratio of sauce and cheese, we may even amend our rating! To order one of your own, head to the Pizza Hut website.

Rating: 8.75/10 (Very Good)
