Also seen the TV ad for this tonite! I think their crust might suit this style of pizza pretty well, may have to try it!

Tried it last nite. It was tasty, but it would benefit by the oven having another 100° at least. It was very soft and doughy, almost gummy in the middle. Has potential. Either a hotter over or more time in 5he oven. Took a quick pic.

How big is what you pictured? Is that one slice, or a big section or ?

I would love to try their version, I've been making Detroit style for a while, even Walmart sells a brand with 3 types, but the Pizza Huts in the Buffalo NY area seemed to have dried up with the pandemic--the app can't find a location within 50 miles!

After getting transferred a couple times from San Antonio and parts unknown (I'm in MN), I finally got a straight answer! My picture is 2 pieces of an 8 slice. When asking their call center the dimensions they told me it's a med square pizza,.......how long.....med........no, how long and wide........wait it's a rectangle med..........I KNOW HOW LONG AND WIDE IN INCHES........transferring..........asked again, after a few minutes they finally said 14 X 10, whether that's correct or not, who knows, but should be close. My lord, call centers are so great!!!!!🙄😒🤔
