Perhaps you’ve seen the commercials on TV advertising that for a limited time at Pizza Hut you can get a pizza of any size, with any type of crust covered in any toppings you want for $10. Now, I’ve seen some pretty good pizza deals before, but this seemed almost too good to be true, and I started wondering what would happen if I were to try and order a large pizza with every single topping that Pizza Hut offered. It’s been years since I’ve been to Pizza Hut and I wasn’t even sure where the closest location to my house was, so I headed to their website to find out and to place my carryout order.
The first thing I noticed on their website was that the offer didn’t include double toppings, extra cheese or stuffed crust pizza. Almost every deal has a couple stipulations though, and I didn’t really expect Pizza Hut to include double toppings or extra cheese as part of the deal anyway. Not including stuffed crust as an option was kind of a bummer though since it specifically says “any crust” right in big bold letters at the top of this deal, but I decided to soldier on anyway.
Once I picked a crust (I decided to go with “pan style”) I started adding toppings to my pizza. I started off with pepperoni, ham, pork, beef and Italian sausage, but when I tried adding bacon a message popped up stating “Caution: We do not recommend adding more toppings as our pizzas cook best with 5 or less toppings.” I clicked “OK,” but figured that the pop-up message was just a friendly suggestions since their website allowed me to keep adding more toppings after that. In addition to my original six toppings I added chicken, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, black olives, diced tomatoes, jalapenos and pineapple and clicked the “Order This Pizza” button.
When I went to check out however a new message popped up, this time telling me “We’re sorry, there were too many additions/removals/substitutions of ingredients on your pizza. Please edit the pizza to reduce the list of modified ingredients.” It seemed as though my dreams of a $10 pizza with every single topping offered by Pizza Hut were smashed, but then I tried one more thing…
I started over and simply added a large supreme pizza to my order. After that I clicked the “Toppings” tab and added every additional topping that wasn’t already included on the pizza, plus some extra sauce. After that I clicked the “Order” button once again and voila, no error messages! I then completed the rest of the checkout process hassle free and 30 minutes later I was on my way to Pizza Hut to pick up my pizza!
On my way there I was pretty sure that one of two things would happen when I retrieved my pizza. The first was that I’d get there and they’d hand me a regular supreme pizza minus all the extra toppings I ordered. The second was that Pizza Hut would add all my additional toppings, but would totally skimp and only give me a couple pieces of each topping. When I got the pizza back out to my car and opened the box however my doubts were instantly erased. My pizza was completely PACKED with toppings!
You know the original error message I got saying how Pizza Hut’s pizzas cooked best with 5 or less toppings? This doesn’t seem to be the case at all because my pizza was delicious! In fact, there were so many toppings on it that with every bite I took I had tons of them falling off onto my plate. After eating three or four slices there were so many toppings on my plate that I could have easily covered a whole separate pizza with them.
So there you have it. Although you might not be able to get any crust you want as part of this deal if you use my little trick you can at least get Pizza Hut to honor the “any toppings” part of their promotion. You know, as long as you don’t want any double toppings or extra cheese…

That sounds like an amazing pizza. Each bite had a slightly different flavor than the one before with each different topping.

Where are the pickles?
NickOctober 6, 2011 at 11:17 am (12 years ago)
Do they offer pickles as a topping? Gross. If they did that would be the one thing I’d leave off.
BryanOctober 6, 2011 at 12:16 pm (12 years ago)
They do not but should. Pickles are the new bacon.
LunchboxOctober 6, 2011 at 2:20 pm (12 years ago)
Bacon is the new bacon.
BryanOctober 11, 2011 at 2:24 pm (12 years ago)
bacon flavored pickles.
ZachOctober 6, 2011 at 12:08 pm (12 years ago)
Haha pickles on a pizza, never tried that.
LunchboxOctober 6, 2011 at 2:21 pm (12 years ago)
I’m glad that I wasn’t the only one whose first thought when seeing this commercial was “What if get EVERYTHING?”
NickOctober 6, 2011 at 2:24 pm (12 years ago)
I’ve wanted to try getting one with everything every time they bring the $10 deal back, so this time I finally went for it.
KatieOctober 8, 2011 at 11:56 pm (12 years ago)
that is one beaut of a pizza…. and now i want pizza….
JeegOctober 6, 2011 at 10:15 pm (12 years ago)
Nick, you are a mad genius.
I don’t think the combination of pineapple and jalepeno would be my favorite, but the end product looks like $10 well spent.

There must be a Pizza Hut rep keeping an eye out because as of today it charged extra if you go over 5 toppings for a custom pizza, or if you add toppings to a lovers pizza. 🙁
NickOctober 8, 2011 at 6:10 pm (12 years ago)
Oh man really? How can they do a $10 “any crust, any toppings” deal and exclude one of their crusts and only allow five toppings?
corenNovember 6, 2011 at 6:47 pm (12 years ago)
Hey Summer, I was just trying to order something ridiculous like Nick did, and didn’t get charged extra…so it seems like it still works? Maybe some specific thing you added goofed it up?

There is a chain (mostly in north Louisiana) called Johnny’s Piazza. They have a piazza called “Sweep the Kitchen”, it is similar to what you did here, and it’s delicious as well.
LuckyJanuary 31, 2013 at 10:09 am (10 years ago)
Johnny’s Pizza, sorry I fat fingered it before.

IT WORKED FOR ME AS WELL BUT WAS EVEN ABLE TO GET THE STUFFED CRUST PIZZA ALONG WITH “EVERY” TOPPING OFFERED (EXCEPT JALAPENOS) BECAUSE I CALLED IN AND TOLD THEM THEIR WEBSITE WAS NOT ALLOWING ME TO CHOOSE STUFFED CRUST. LOL WAITING FOR MY PIZZA TO ARRIVE AS I TYPE THIS. YUM!

I believe this to be a scam, I called to ask what special they had and was told $10 any way / topping pizza. When I said I wanted stuff crust they said it was not included, and would be an extra $2. When I asked for extra cheese (on a otherwise 3 topping pizza) they said Extra Cheese is not a topping, and would be an extra $1, so when I was done my $10
anyway pizza was $14.50 with tax. Don’t offer an
“Anyway you want it pizza” and when the customer asks for something
tell them it’s not included. what a scam !!

Trybordering that pizza now. You complain about 15 dollars for a stuffed crust try it when they are not running the special. You can’t really complain if you chose to add the stuffed crust which yes is going to be a 2 dollar extra. Obviously if they have people bottoming out their toppings they are not making bank off of this deal. Cheese is expensive. Remember resteraunts have to buy the ingredients they use to sell so doing extra cheese and stuffed crust no additional cost they would absolutely lose profit on this deal. Pizza hut is full of people too. Remember that just because it’s a company doesn’t mean your any more human than the ones behind the counter or behind the desk of the company.
