Pizza Hut rolled out their new event item today, so of course I had to loot it. The Crazy Cheesy Crust looks like a variation of the Cheesy Bites, but is a different beast in itself. The wells look like what would happen if the bite pockets burst open from overload. :P
The cheese wells on the crust don’t quite lend themselves to being easily plucked off, like the Cheesy Bites. Eat it like a normal pizza– hell, the crust wells lend themselves to the usual eating method. I got my pizza with pepperoni and added extra cheese, but even without the added cheese you’re getting a lot of cheese in this pie (obviously). If you’re like me and loot the fried mozzarella sticks as a side item, you may want to skip on that this time, because even I would consider that a bit overkill. Yeah.
(I did, however, get the garlic parmesan boneless wings. That stuff is just… omg…)
So, all that said, is this good pizza? Well, of course. It’s not a “Yoshi Suggests” post if I wasn’t endorsing it. It’s chewy and juicy and oily and everything that’s horrible and therefore awesome that you would expect from a novelty event pizza like this. >:D As much as Papa Johns is my all-time favorite overall, I gotta give Pizza Hut points for playing with the crust, even if it doesn’t always work out.

As much as it looks like I do him all the time, it’s actually been quite some time since I’ve drawn some Numair. It’s my birthday, all you haters can piss off! >:P
I need work/portfolio fodder way more than I need loot, so if you were even thinking of loot/cookie-bombing me, you may want to consider hiring me for some Gourmet Ramen instead. You get purdy pictures, I get some coin and more material for my portfolio (aside from my pile of OCs), everyone wins! :D Besides, the games I want– DuckTales Remastered and Tales of Xillia– don’t drop until summertime anyway.
If you’re wondering, I get a cat-themed cake. Of course, mother went and put my original name on there, otherwise I’d be posting/tweeting it all over and I don’t need any sass about my birth name, thank you.
At some point today I need to swap out one of Blastoise’s case fans, so I can set him up for livestreaming without worry of overworking the rest of his cooling measures. Otherwise, just another day of painting and being lazy in WoW. :P

I’ve really got to start livestreaming my sessions again. Problem is, my Happy Hour is at butt-freaking-3am. Good for my European fans, not so much for my fellow Americans… unless you live on the East Coast and your idea of fun in the morning is watching a mute stream of line art and coloring for a few hours. :P Well, I suppose it’s not that big of a problem when you consider I compress and post 10-minute “Express” versions to YouTube the next day all the same, but it’s fun to do stuff live and actually have people show up, too.

Ahmygawd, what is THIS?!
This is to eventually become the cover art for the Facebook version of Instant Ramen Sketchbook. (…which you should Like, if you are on FB)
Also holy freaking crap, COUNTDOWN TO YOSHI DAY EPISODE 29. March is already half-over?!
I need to figure out what I want (and is feasible) to do. All that’s a given is that it ends with delicious cake. Oh man, very much want.
Time for bed~

It’s time for a pizza edition of Yoshi Suggests. Today’s experiment in nom is the Slider from Pizza Hut. It’s an event item that’s been around for a couple weeks but I’ve not yet gotten to looting some myself. Since this is a Yoshi Suggests post, this of course means I approve enough to endorse a buy.
Recall when Pizza Hut rolled out their Garlic Bread Pizzas. Basically, this is the Pan Crust version of ‘em. Seems someone took my “offer a smaller version” hint to heart, since this one comes in two varieties: a 9-pc version for $10, and a 3-pc version for $5. I looted the 3-piece version.
First off, you get to configure EVERY SINGLE ONE. You heard me. Every one of those Sliders is customizable, so you really could have a unique pizzaling if that’s what you wanted. Good if you have a group of picky eaters or really felt like sampling every freaking topping that’s out there. Of course, these are rather small so you can only shove so many topping bits on here. You are capped at 3 topping selections to each Slider, and since this is Pizza Hut, extra cheese is excluded as a topping selection. :P
Now, as to whether or not I’d take the 9 over the 3-pc version… well, that depends on how much you like Pan Crust. As in, do you like the actual crust, because most of the time you’re going to be munching on the crust side and maybe get one or two out of the center. Pan Crust is also infamous for having INCREDIBLY BUTTERY BOTTOMS because of the spray on the pan to, you know, keep the dough from sticking. Also, this particular Pizza Hut merely squirted a small blob of sauce in the center before putting on the cheese and topping– yes, you can actually see a dark puck where the sauce is underneath that cheese. If you’re like me and looted something else that comes with marinara, and you want a little more sauce, these dunk quite easily!
I will repeat my recommendation from the Garlic Bread Pizza version– Sliders work far better as a side item than as a standalone, both from price and how long you can stomach Pan Crust. Granted, the 9pc version is a better deal since it’s basically a buy 2x of the 3pc and get an additional 3pc for free… Anyway, if you’re feeding a big group, I’d get these as a side item and loose ‘em on your friends, especially if they’re chomping at your ankles for some munchies while you’re setting up the main event. :D
You know what would be awesome, though? If Pizza Hut could apply the Slider concept to their Chocolate dunkers. Oh man. THAT would be… almost illegal. Chocolate Dunkers, if you’ve not had them before, is basically Pan Crust-type breadsticks with Hershey chocolate+white chocolate kibble and melted chocolate dip. Yes, Pizza Hut’s dough is malleable enough that it can function as a dessert medium.

The Magic Coin Block!
Like the sass and awesome and artwork and other happy things you see on Ayarane Project? Consider tossing a few coins into Yoshi's Magic Coin Block and contribute to the cool. Even better: if you put in 20 coins, you get credit towards a Gourmet Ramen piece! This is cumulative-- you can donate smaller amounts in different instances but have it add up-- and scales to the same parameters as Gourmet Ramen commissions.
Of course, if you want to just buy a Gourmet Ramen commission outright, that's fine too! :)
