Pizza Hut Spicy Lover’s Pizza Review

Pizza Hut’s attempt to bring piquant food to the masses resulted in the creation of a new line of Lover’s specialty recipes. The Pizza Hut Spicy Lover’s Pizza combines spicy ingredients with crispy-cupped pepperoni and a crunchy pizza crust. I tried it, and I think that it’s simply a game-changing recipe for this company.

So, what can you expect from a Spicy Lovers Pizza? You might be thinking that you will be overwhelmed by the spicy flavor, but that is not completely true. The spicy marinara brings out the familiar sweetness of the stuffed crust pizza, and there is also a tomatoey taste with a touch of heat. The toppings enrich the pizzas even more, creating a mixture of sweet and piquant tastes.

What Is a Spicy Lover’s Pizza?

In 2022, hot foods have become a trend, and food brands are coming up with recipes that would amaze diners all over the world. Pizza Hut decided that they wanted to release the spiciest fast-food pizzas ever. Their newest recipe became Spicy Lover’s Pizza which is made with flavourful yet balanced zesty ingredients. There is a bit of sweetness and a touch of heat because of ”Fiery Flakes” (which are prepared from crushed red peppers and a combination of herbs) and sliced red chilis.

How Many Varieties Can You Choose From?

The new Spicy Lover’s line of pizzas comes in different varieties. The ingredients slightly differ, and the customers can choose what they prefer. Here is a list of all the varieties you can choose from

  • Spicy Veggie – It is made with red onions, green bell peppers, and mushrooms. A spicy marinara sauce comes on the top of the pizzas, with Fiery Flakes and sliced red chilies.
  • Spicy Hawaiian Chicken – The recipe of this variety is different because they add chicken and pineapple to the zesty marinara sauce, Fiery Flakes, and sliced red chilis.
  • Spicy Double Pepperoni – This variety is the customer’s favorite. It’s even considered the Pepperoni Lover’s dream. There are two types of pepperonis that go on top of the pie – classic and crispy cupped. This variety also features marinara sauce, Fiery Flakes, and sliced red chilis.

Pizza Hut Spicy Lovers Pizza Review – How Does This Pizza Really Taste?

I was eager to try a Spicy Lover’s pizza, so I wasted no time. I ordered my pizza and prepared for the heat.  Upon opening a box of the Spicy Lover’s Double Pepperoni pizza, I was met with a vinegary and tangy aroma. At first, red chili peppers seemed to be the most piquant. They tasted a little bit sour since they were pickled. They were pickled with red jalapenos, and they were not too zesty.

When I tried a slice for the first time, I was instantly overwhelmed by the tasty marinara sauce, which was less sweet and spicier than the brand’s regular sauce. The Fiery Flakes also stood out the most, and they brought on the heat the most. Also, the cheese and the sweetness of the sauce created a balance where the spiciness was not overpowering.

While I was eating my slice, I couldn’t quite discern what ingredient was the spiciest of them all. When combined together, the pie, red chilies, crispy-cupped pepperoni, the sauce, and Fiery Flakes made the pizzas appetizing, meaty, and sweet at the same time.

Are the Pizzas too Hot?

Even though they are intended for fans of hot food, this variety isn’t out-of-this-world spicy for me. I could tolerate the heat, and I believe that those diners who don’t like eating piquant foods would enjoy these pizzas with a glass of water by their side just in case. The heat is somewhere between medium and mild, depending on the pizzas. If there are more Fiery Flakes and sliced red peppers, the heat will be stronger.

For enthusiasts and chiliheads like me, these pizzas can be a treat. They won’t burn your taste buds, and I experienced all the pleasing zesty sensations, making me want to eat more than one slice. The layers of heat leave a lingering aftertaste after eating only one slice. The heat of the dish is not the only reason to love these pizzas, but also the quality, which is very high.
