The app is designed very well and the user experience is great. However there is a major bug that doesn’t appear to have been addressed. Occasionally when adding something to the cart an error message is thrown and the item does not appear in the cart. Every subsequent item you attempt to add to the cart will throw the error and none will appear in the cart. Once you go to checkout none of the items appear in the subtotal or anywhere on the cart, BUT when your payment processes all the items that threw the error are on the order, charged on your card, and the items appear on the employee side so they just start making them. I got charged for 5 brownies and a couple other items I added while testing. Luckily I checked the order history immediately when I saw I gained over 100 points for 2 pizzas and called the store to cancel it, but this can cause SERIOUS headaches for customers and should be addressed. Unfortunately I don’t know what causes the initial error, and force closing the app didn’t help.
Updated app came out with bugs
The previous version had some issues but they weren’t much of a problem and could be worked around. The new user interface seems a little clunky and there are a couple of problems that caused me to have to do some troubleshooting.
First, user interface is a step by step procedure that, while it gets the job done theoretically, it seems like it could be refined to speed the process. The first problem I had was with the crust flavor section. I honestly don’t remember getting the option to set the flavor the first time I tried to set up my pizza. I went through the rest of the process thinking they were going to ask later but it never came up. Then I couldn’t find a way to edit the fact it had “no flavor” on the crust in the end and I had to start all over. When I got back to the beginning, I saw the crust flavor section and when I tried to tap on “no flavor”, it just moved to the pizza sauce section. I got frustrated and just ended up selecting a pizza I had bought previously.
The next problem was in the payment section. First I couldn’t find the Visa checkout option and I wish there was an Apple Pay option but as I entered my credit card info and tapped the button, it notified me I forgot to fill out my name. No problem, I filled out my name then it tells me to fill out the credit card number. The number was already filled out. I checked it against my credit card and ended up just refilling the same number again and it worked.
From bad to worse

Each update makes the app prettier, but less functional and introduces more quirks. I have not been able to successfully complete (at least) the last three orders. Prior to that, it authorized my charge twice, but the store never received my order.
Tried again just now. I get through the entire order and click Submit. Tells me there is an error and my store isn’t accepting online orders. I need to change me location. Change MY location? Let me buy another house just to make it convenient for you, Pizza Hut. I also get a lot of “Out of Stock” notices when trying to put an order through. At least those appear in the front end of the order as opposed to at the end when I’m trying to complete the purchase.
There is potential in this app, but Pizza Hut developers and/or receiving restaurants are making this a waste of time. Am genuinely recommending that you call a local and Izzy parlor and place your order over the phone as opposed to wasting time with this app. Something I’m about to do because Pizza Hut won’t accept an invoice for the time I’ve lost. (PS: the did send me a coupon for a free pizza once when I complained about this app, but the coupon required that I use it in a restaurant. I called corporate and confirmed I had to go to a restaurant to use it. Tells you how much faith they have in their own app!)
Omg fix your app!
How long does this need to go on being the most jacked up app I’ve ever used? I try to change my address because I travel for work, POP up talking about “contactless delivery blah, blah” telling me that I have to clear my cart to enter a different address (in a different room number in the same hotel) click Ok, nothing happens. Back out of and close the app, repeat of first problem. Completely delete the order, close the app and clear it, same problem. Delete the address completely from my saved addresses, go through the order process all the way to check out, wrong address again, the same one I deleted already from saved addresses. Click change address....REPEAT FROM BEGINNING. It’s a vicious circle of AHHHHHHHH!!!! I just wanted a pizza and now my blood pressure is through the roof AND I’m hungry. Trying to pay $25-30 just to get food to myself which is an exorbitant amount of money in the first place, I can go to a nice place, eat and have a few drinks for that. As a matter of fact, I think that’s what I’ll do! My 18yo daughter works for Pizza Hut while she’s in school and I raised her right and she’s commended constantly, I pay money to your restaurant maybe 2-3 times a month to feed the 5 people in my house and this is how I’m repaid, with an app that makes me want to yank my own eyeballs out. 🤯 Thanks Pizza Hut app developers! 🤬
App will not update or download now!!!
This is the 7th time, I’ve tried to update the app today! This same thing happened two weeks ago where I ended up calling, and that was another headache, nevertheless, I open my app on my iPhone 8 running iOS 13.4.1. I also have Norton’s VPN on. The app tells me that have to Update Now, without another option. So I hit the button and it goes and opens the App Store, it turns the download icon to a blue bar that says Update Now and when I hit it, it starts twirling in wonderland. After 5 minutes I give up and close the Apple Store and close the app and then I try the whole process again and again. I now turn off all of Norton’s secure features that protect me, thus leaving me exposed to the world and I try this process over and over with no new results. I decided to delete my app and reinstall it again, but after about 3 minutes of twirling it comes back to the download app mode. What do I need to do te give you all some business?
What Happened (Baby Come Back)
I remember as a kid loving Pizza Hut. The pan pizza gave the best little
crunch to every pie. Then something happened over the last 10 years where the quality just went down. Maybe it’s the fact that for years dominoes was garbage and when they caught up Pizza Hut just didn’t look as good anymore. I still believe that those Pizzas I had as a youth were better and a return to the roots would be nice, ingredient wise. Nowadays I go to Pizza Hut because y’all come up with crazy “pizzas” stuffing your crusts with whatever you can find. I’m surprised there hasn’t been a foray into deep dish or a “Corn Dog Stuffed Crust” (which I’m not asking for, but would be on brand.
That’s not even mentioning the app, which would be fine if every other app in the Pizza business weren’t already so much better. Everything feels laggy, the design is fine but the engine on the app just feel like a beaten up Mazda just trying to make it home from Burning Man. It does the job but honestly halfway through my order I second guessed even getting my food from Pizza Hut because the dominoes app would have just been a breeze to work with.
Please update the following
So the app is definitely more user friendly, however, there is no way to add extra toppings. For example, when you select pepperoni as a topping, you can only select it once, there’s no way to change amount. The other thing I’d change is limiting the amount of characters available when instructions. Since you can’t add extra toppings, if you try to request it in additional instructions, you have to limit what you say. Add a feature that allows you to specific certain things for each item or something. The purpose of the app is for convenience and ease, but now you have to call the store after placing the order to update it to what you truly want. Might as well just call in the order.
Also, with the update, when you change the amount of sauce on your pizza, it doesn’t show you’ve selected light or extra sauce when confirming your order. As consumers, we want to see what the store will see and we want to be able to order something exactly as we want it without having to jump through extra hoops. Other than that.. Pizza Hut app is great. That’s my 2 cents ✌🏻
So, I built a profile on the app.. Built an order and continued to check out. Then in the check out it wants me to re enter the info I just created a profile with.. Okay.. So I do that. Then again continue to check out. An error pops up stating I need to enter ALL info.. Okay.. I go back. I've entered all but the email. So, I try to enter my email, however the app will not allow me to select the email field. So I log out.. Back in.. Re enter everything from scratch.. But of course.. Same issue. Okay.. I'll just call in. I do that.. Read my order from the app verbatim. Of course this is a process because the employee doesn't know what their cheez-it product is.. Apparently employee product and special feature knowledge isn't a priority... Okay.. Finally, after extensive teamwork my order is ready to process. BUT WAIT! Now my order is 8$ more than what is stated on the app. The employee of course doesn't know why either and lacks any sort of social or problem solving skills.. However at this point.. I can't go through anymore of this bs. Keep the extra 8$ pizza Hut. Maybe spend it on app development or employee training. Both facets could use work. What an experience.. Thank you pizza Hut. What a magical experience.
Annoyed!! It glitches and causes order’s to get messed up! Here is my order problem example, wanted 2 pizzas 1 with all pepperoni, reg cheese, reg sauce (which I pay good attention to bc the other gets light cheese and light sauce) and then olives on half. For this one they gave me instead, extra cheese on half (which I hate!) Then for pizza #2, ordered all pepperoni with light cheese and sauce, ended up with up with only half pepperoni(which it clearly does not say on my order), I know I specifically said “NO” when the pop up menu suggest extra cheese too! Then if that’s not enough, to end the madness, my 4 pack of 20oz was ordered as 2 Pepsi’s and 2 mountain dews and guess what, got 3 mountain dews and1 Pepsi!!! Then I have a receipt on my pizza’s (the one with no description)that’s $10 less then the one a paid!!! What kinda of chaos is this, i guarantee when I call, and I will, they will do everything possible to blame it ALL on me, they always do. 9 out of 10 times, I prove my case! Ifwhen I call, my experience is different, I will update this review! Don’t hold your breath though! Just double, triple and maybe even call them to verify they have the proper order, this is a pain!!! Good Luck my fella consumers!!!
We ordered the $7.99 two pizza special some wings and desert for delivery. Because of the extreme high delivery orders I received a call from the manager Caesar asking me if we would prefer to come and pickup the order instead and he would remove the delivery surcharge, now this wasn’t the issue... the issue started when the my spouse went to pickup the order. Because my spouse wasn’t aware of the complete order the female employee handed her only half the order prompting me to have to contact the establishment again. Upon returning back to the store the same female associate again appeared to be confused and unsure of our order nor what I was there for after I told her the name on the order. After it was all said and done they still failed to give us all of our order. I highly suggest if your planning on visiting this establishment to check your order throughly because the employees don’t seem to care.
