What can I say about the Garlic Knot Pizza besides every perverted thought that can go in my head about two balls shaped sacks tea-bagging the crust of the pizza. My first problem was ordering this on Super Bowl Sunday, so I feel like Pizza Hut's usually outstanding quality was trumped based on the event.
I'll be perfectly honest, the only pizza I really enjoy at Pizza Hut is their pan pizza and it's simple due to the fact that I feel like I'm eating pizza toppings on top of a deep fried dough. Let me rephrase that; I am eating pizza toppings on top of deep fried dough and I love that.
The Garlic Knot Pizza is the same type of pizza you can expect from stuffed crust, hot dog bites, cheesy bites, etc. It's thin, flaccid, flavorless dough with no texture. The knots however were delicious, buttery, garlicky, cheesy, easy to eat and came with a substantial amount of dipping sauce where I didn't feel like I had to ration out my dip procedure with unbearable caution.
I guess there's no surprise that the knots immediately fall off the crust since it's not part of the crust, but something they just stuck on before baking. That's not only disappointing, but completely defeats the purpose of calling it the crust. I feel like I can do the same thing by slapping on a banana and calling it a banana crust pizza. The only sense this idea makes is for efficient utilization of space. I wouldn't be as pleased if someone just toss garlic knots on top of my pizza, whereas these were neatly arrange around the crust of my pizza.
If you take the garlic knot off the crust, what you see underneath is almost disturbing, like naked dough that's been violated. It's pale and frail, scared and vulnerable. It's also the worst crust I've ever had because it's basically slightly undercooked dough.
My rating for this pizza as follows:
Garlic Knots: 8/10
