Longtime Slice'r Philip "Prairie" Given (of The Susquehanna Photographic) checks in with some photos of the newish Pizza Hut Big Italy pizza. He must have seen me talking about it here. I love inbox surprises! Thanks, Philip! The Mgmt.

I figured since you were visiting Domino's HQ, I'd take one for the team and try this thing out from Pizza hut.

Other than on this blog and a few pieces of weird copy on Pizza Hut's site, I haven't seen much on it.

It seems to me that this is a really poorly put together concept in every way. It basically tastes like two of those Pizza Mias combined into one football-shaped pie.

It would have been cool if they would have done something different (or even used their awesome cracker thin crust for this), but it's just a different assembly of existing ingredients.

Speaking to THIS PARTICULAR pizza I ordered, it wasn't made very well.

You can see the outer slices are really thick and the inner, very thin and soggy.

I don't see this lasting long.

Thanks, Philip! This looks almost like a Roman-style pizza, what with the oblong shape, the thin (sort of) crust, and the square cuts. I sort of love that it comes in a paper bag, which is sort of old-school.

What about you, Slice'rs? Have you had the Big Italy? Thoughts?
