The gluten free world has gone pizza crazy this month, and as such, my blog has been a little bit pizza-obsessed of late, much like myself!
Easy to make, loads of different toppings and always tasty, pizza for me is the ultimate food and if I could get away with it, I probably would eat it every day (and did, in fact, for several weeks as a student!)
The pizza, like Dominio's (see my review of their pizza here) only comes in a small size (9") and unlike everything else on the menu is square.
I guess this is to ensure it definitely doesn't get mixed up with the other bases but this did leave me feeling a little disappointed.
I wanted to be able to go to Pizza Hut and finally enjoy eating 'normal' food, yet somehow I STILL end up with something that makes me look different.
I went for a Meat Feast (£9.25) and sat back and hoped for the best!
It is probably right to say the menu does state.....
"*We do handle wheatflour in our kitchens and have strict procedures to reduce contamination. Some pizza toppings may be made in a factory that handles wheatflour (gluten) please ask your server for more information."
I think it is down to every individual to risk assess whether they feel safe eating there or not - but I took the chance and am pleased to report I didn't feel any ill effects.
The pizza arrived with it's own (ginormous!) pizza cutter, which I thought what a good touch to avoid contamination, and I tucked right in...
It looked good - plenty of topping and a reasonable amount of cheese!
I'll be completely honest - after the exciting build up to this new gluten free base, I entered the restaurant feeling tremendously excited and left feeling, well, pretty deflated.
I found the tomato sauce topping extremely sweet, and the base made me feel as if I had stepped back in time to when I was first diagnosed.
It was nice and crispy round the edges, but I found to me it tasted 'obviously' gluten free - compared, in hindsight, to the tasty Domino's base.
Although I enjoyed the experience of being able to eat at Pizza Hut, I think I will probably give it a miss in the future - sorry guys but for me if it was a competition, Domino's won by a mile.
