Anybody tried the new Pizza Hut Stuffed Pizza Rolls? Are they any good. I'm thinking about getting some this week. Please let's skip the nutrition comments too, I already know there are better choices. Man can not live on veggies alone :)

I'm willing to bet they are. I used to work at PH and we'd make our own out of the ingredients we had for other things. ;)

Sirenity-Didja ever make ham rolls. Take 4-5 pieces of ham before it was quarted, line them up, a little cheese, rolled up and put just at the end of the oven? OMG, Heaven!!!

Oh yeah! We also used to make cinnamon rolls out of leftover dough and the cinnamon-sugar for the desert pizzas!

Whew! it's a good thing I don't work there anymore! :lol:

The only thing I didn't like about them was that they didn't seem to be cooked long enough. They smelled HEAVENLY and tasted pretty dang good, but they were still a little doughy. Could've just been my PH, though--they look more "browned" in the commercials.

(Melty cheesy goodness is what I seem to enjoy when pregnant.)

They are only 920 caloires in a 4 pack. I know that's high but not for going out to eat. A typical, non-diet, restaurant meal is usually over 1,000 calories. I think I might try them tomorrow night, or Chili's Cajun Chicken Pasta. The pasta is 1,300 calories though. Any thoughts on which is better, the pizza rolls or Chili's Cajun Pasta?

I'd say go for the pasta. The pizza rolls are good but not really filling at all. We went on a family walk (4 mi round trip ) Sunday since our car broke down and we stopped at pizza hut for a quick/late lunch. We ordered the pizza rolls and our 2.5 year old LOVED them, we liked them but they seemed to be missing something to me. I do plan on making them as a treat at home myself though!

I like the pizza rolls better than their regular pizza -- with a little extra marinara sauce (they never give enough for four rolls), they're pretty darn tasty.

Not really, IMHO. Not all of us are at goal yet and many of us has foresworn "empty calories" for other eating regimens. And for lots of us, discussing those foods that used to call our names is, well, tough and is a subject best left untouched. And there are people on this forum who have serious difficulty with foods such as these. So making a thread for this kind of discussion is, for many, akin to having a thread on an AA forum about the best mixed drinks or the smoothest ale out there.

I'm pretty sure there are plenty of reviews on restaurant foods out there, and there MUST be other forums that deal with just this. You'd probably find better/more conversation about them there! Especially since 3FC is specific to weight loss support and the foods you seem to want to discuss by their very nature aren't exactly conducive to this goal.

Just trying to be respectful of the forum and of the many 3FCers who post on this forum who struggle daily with foods such as these. I'm sure we ALL want to be respectful of them, no?

I was surprised by this thread and I guess a little saddened. Although I haven't investigated every diet plan here on 3FC I thought that they all pretty much promoted healthy eating.

Let's face it folks, NONE of the offerings on the new Pizza Hut commercial are healthy. And did you see the portion sizes? Wowza. It's sad to see that people who are dieting would even consider these. And for those who are at goal, it doesn't seem like anything was learned during the dieting process...which, courtesy of Pizza Hut pizza rolls will surely have to be repeated.

I think if you have a meal at a chain restaraunt that is "reasonably" healthy and you like it...and want to share it for the good of THE TEAM...well, that is a fine idea. Many of us do that.

If you want to share a recipe that is "reasonably" healthy for THE TEAM....another good idea....many of us do that.

if you want to post threads about foods that are not healthy, and do it frequently, then I think you should find another playground...

Why are you saddened by it? There is nothing unhealth in proportion and everything in over porportion is unhealthy. Do you really consider 920 calories one time a week unhealthy? It has all the basic food groups, your dairy, meat, vegatable, and carbs. I guess I'm confused why this is so "unhealhty".

I don't see how this is not being respectful and not HELPFUL. Every diet needs indulgence once in a while, just like I did tonight. I would feel much better if people reviewed their indulgences and let me know if its actually worth me eating something. Wouldn't you feel better about eating something that was 900 calories when you knew it was going to be good?

Again like I stateed earlier why is this so unhealthy because it's not. The problem with Pizza is that people go overboard and eat more than they should of it. Anything that you eat in over abundence is unhealthy.

we need to get over "bad" food and "good" food. this site concerns me sometimes because emphasis is put on always eating "good" food and only having "bad" food as a treat or as part of a plan. LIFE HAPPENS. sometimes a cheeseburger is part of my life, and that's awesome. i'm absolutely CANNOT and WILL NOT feel guilty every single time i "go off plan" or eat something "bad." screw that.

You still haven't given me a reason. Give me a reason why it was unhealthy. I gave my reasons why I thought it wasn't unhealthy.

It's easy to make a statement but try and back it up.

First - let me say, everything I'm going to say is about me and my food plan. I am a big believer in personal choice and making the right decision for you. I don't think there is one right answer for everyone - not even close.

http://www.dietfacts.com/html/nutrition-facts/pizza-hut-stuffed-pizza-rolls-entire-order-4-pieces61912.htm

Forget the calories for a second, although 920 is a LOT in my opinion and if I were researching a restaurant entree with 900 calories posted online, I would skip it or pack up half immediately (900 calories for dinner is not a healthy choice for me).

Maybe the pizza rolls are unhealthy because they have 98% of the daily recommended allowance of sodium?
Or a 100% of the daily recommended allowance of saturated fat?
Ranch dipping sauce just makes it worse, btw.

Saying a pizza product is healthy because it has bread, meat, veggies and cheese - that doesn't make any sense to me. A corn dog has bread and meat - is it healthy? An Outback Steakhouse Bloomin' Onion is a vegetable - is it healthy?

I admit to seeing some foods as bad - but let me clarify - bad for ME. My body, my choice of what goes in to it. That being said, of course I have treats and special occasion foods. My treats are more like a glass of red wine (or 2) and chocolate molten lava cake.

In any case, these pizza rolls aren't my thing - I was never a big fan of super bready things. Pizza - sure, pizza rolls? Nah, just not a big pull for me. If I did want to eat them, I would, but I wouldn't try to argue they were healthy foods. If I wanted them, if they fit into my plan, I would eat them anyway (like red wine, like cheesecake, like nachos, or donuts or any of the other treat foods I have eaten since I started maintaining my weight loss).

I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to treat foods - but saying these pizza rolls are healthy? In my opinion, no way. I wouldnt consider them a healthy food for me, and they aren't "worth it enough" to me to eat them (like chile dark chocolate gelato ;)).

I think people can be successful by putting some foods off limits and people can also be successful putting no food off limits. Since I do choose not to eat some foods, it is always hurtful when someone implies I am FAILING by not eating some foods. WTF. I have lost 70lbs and have kept it off for 4 years - I am working it, baby. I'm not going to feel guilty about choices I make for me, my weight maintenance and my health.

Kinda reminds me of a patient I saw once new to the cardiac diet.She was devestated that she had to give up all her favorite foods.She kept asking, "Do I really have to not have Taco Johns anymore?" The doctor said , well they are very high in sodium and fat and they do not follow the guidelines of the cardiac diet.Then she asked "What about ice cream and pizza, do I really have to give that up?".This went on and on until he finally said, "Eat whatever you want, Ill will see you back in 3-6 months for occuluded stents, I need the business anyway". and walked out.
Moral of the story-eat what you want.........just dont ask why its not healthy.

Yes, well, I don't think the nuns started flogging him as he was sitting down to eat within the walls of a Pizza Hut or even on a park bench.

He posted a thread soliciting opinions about Pizza Hut pizza rolls on a message board devoted to healthy living and weightloss.

Sure he has balls, but it's also a little odd IMHO.

and this is basically the same point i was trying to make in the Twilight thread: i don't care what you eat, as long as you have a healthy relationship with food (i.e., don't eat too much, don't eat too little, think positively about your eating habits). i don't care what you read, as long as you do it (i.e., read bodice-rippers for all i care).

i spent too much time worrying that every bite i ate had to be accounted for and plotted and mapped that i wasn't actually enjoying food. that sucked.

um, i was talking about how my personal eating obsession was turning into anorexia/exercise bulimia. i'm just saying that eating the occasional pizza roll isn't going to make you gain 100 pounds. and we can say that greasy, delicious foods are delicious without gaining weight. what a concept!

First I'd like to say 920 is not that high for me since my daily intake should be around 2400.

Second I never said pizza was "healthy". Said is that it's not UNHEALTHY in moderation.

Third yes the sodium may be hight but are you trying to tell me 1 day a month going over on my sodium is going to kill me. You compare me to a heart patient whose life depends on giving up foods like this. Let's compare apples to apples.

Fourth, I've lost 80lbs and kept it off for 7 years and I've never gained a single poung back. I've actually continued to lose. I think I know what it takes to be succcessful.

Last, I'm done with this thread because it seems like some of you are just here to scold others and put them down instead of support them. Waving your finger at someone when the indulge once is not helpful.

Dude, go elsewhere for your validation. Bottom line, they're unhealthy. If you want to go try them and see if they're good then go ahead, your body not mine. Are they good? Well to me any crap from a chain restaurant that serves "phood' isn't worth it - diet or not. Go to a nice restaurant, get a real meal or cook something you normally wouldn't at home. You know, something that uses actual ingredients and not overproccessed foods, chemicals, preservatives, etc.
Great you've lost weight, I'm happy for you but as you can clearly see there are numerous people still struggling on here and your post is bothersome and well quite frankly annoying to almost all so why continue? You must know the struggle it can be to lose weight so why make it harder for others on a healthy DIET and WEIGHT LOSS board?
