Pizza Hut (Union Place)

A palate-tingling concoction!

Introducing their latest Calzones, Pizza Hut had us stoked right from the start. Ranging from 6 savoury fillings and 2 dessert fillings, our confidence in pizza hut’s culinary skills was concrete.  

With 8 options on the list ranging from Rs.400 – 450, the calzone is made up of amazing fillings that are held within folded pizza bread; each of it baked to perfection. We decided to try out all 8 (because YOLO) with the flavours being: Double Chicken & Cheese, Devilled Chicken, Sausage & Chicken Bacon, Pepperoni & Chicken Bacon, Grilled Vegetable, Devilled Seafood, Nutella with Crumble and  Strawberry with Nutella.

 

  • Double Chicken & Cheese – Rs. 400

On a rather spicy scale, this was simply heavenly! One bite into the calzone and my mouth was just filled with so much cheese! The Double Chicken & Cheese was quite generous with the chicken and the kochchi from the sausage meat cut through the thick cream cheese, enhancing every flavour this calzone had. Being the first calzone served onto the table, I could definitely say that I was served the best!

 

  • Grilled Vegetable – Rs.400

    Pizza Hut always seems to do such a great job catering to the vegetarian palette and this calzone appeared to be nothing less. Consisting of grilled Eggplant, Carrot, Green Pepper, Onion and Cream Cheese; we surely did not miss the meat! The filling was well seasoned and went hand in hand with the Cream Cheese. So don’t worry my herbivore friends, Pizza Hut has not forgotten you lovely beings!

     

    • Devilled ChickenRs.400

     

    Personally, Devilled Chicken has always been my go-to pizza topping. Even before indulging in this calzone, I knew it had to be as good as the pizzas I’ve had; and it was! However, it did not exactly live up to the “Devilled” part in its name since I found the Double Chicken to be spicier. Nevertheless, I was not disappointed. If you don’t want to risk trying out new flavours (which I think you should though, because.. WORTH IT!) and want to stick to a safer option, you can’t go wrong with the Devilled Chicken Calzone.

     

    • Devilled Seafood – Rs. 450

     

    From all the yummy Calzones I had, this was the one I looked forward to the most. However, it was a bit of a letdown.  Consisting of Fish, Cuttlefish, Crab Meat and Prawns as its meat items, you’d expect it to be quite rich in flavour (which it wasn’t). We couldn’t quite distinguish the seafood flavour and believed this was either because the Cream Cheese over powered the meat content or simply because the meat was not seasoned well enough, but this was only what we assumed.

     

    • Pepperoni & Chicken BaconRs. 400

     

    Once again being quite generous with the meat, this Calzone had a layer of Pepperoni and Chicken Bacon slices on the bottom, with the rest of the ingredients laying on top of it. As good as it tasted, we believe it gave off a rather processed meat kind of taste so if you’re not a fan, stay away. Just like most of the other Calzones, this also had a sea of cream cheese oozing out with onions, green chillies and also black olives.

     

    • Sausage & Chicken BaconRs. 400

     

    This was probably on the bottom of my list since it tasted way too salty for my liking! Consisting of Sausage, Chicken Bacon, Onions, Green Chillies and Cream Cheese; all I could properly taste was the Cream  Cheese, chunks of sausage and salt, salt, salt. Not a fan, and not worth the buy unless you’re a child who likes sausages and cheese.

     

    • Strawberry & NutellaRs.450

     

    Moving onto the sweet Calzones! This Calzone is what everyone needs to try out after a savoury Calzone, a meal or simply AS a meal (dessert should totally be considered a meal, my friends).  Fresh strawberries infused in Nutella can never go wrong. The pizza bread is incredibly filling and the smooth Nutella just makes it even better.

     

    • Nutella with CrumbleRs.450

     

    Okay, maybe this is my favourite calzone. The classic Nutella and bread combo, dating back to my school intervals where only the cool kids had this for lunch; I was dying with how graciously full of Nutella this calzone was. Not to forget the crumble! Compared to all the Calzones, this was the only one of its kind. With a crunchy exterior, this Calzone had a range of textures going on. If you’re not a fan of strawberries, I suggest you go for this crunchy, chocolate filled delight!

    All in all, we loved the Calzones and found it extremely refreshing to try out something else that was made of pizza bread, other than pizza.  Let us know in the comments below what you think of the Calzones as well!
