Great Value Mini Pizza Bagels

I found another frozen pizza thing I hadn’t tried!

These are pretty tiny, and definitely cheaply made, but as far as cheap frozen pizza goes, they’re not too bad. The bagel crust is an interesting difference from other pizzas, with a noticeably more prominent flavor. The cheese and sauce are very plain tasting, but along with the bagel part this is overall a pretty decent pizza.

If you’re just looking for small, cheap pizza, I’d still recommend Great Value’s Mini Pan Crust Pizza or a Totino’s Party Pizza over this, but they’re not a terrible option like most other very cheap pizzas are.

Quest Thin Crust Pizza

I’ve discovered a new frozen pizza! It’s been a while since I’ve seen a brand I haven’t tried. This one doesn’t look great, but we’ve got to try it because… reasons.

The pinnacle of pizza, obviously.

It’s bad. The crust is terrible, the pepperoni is really bad, and the overall flavor is just terrible. It sort of reminds me of a worse version of the Great Value take-and-bake that was also painfully bad, or maybe a more painful derivative of one of Costco’s frozen brands. Just bad.

0/10 would not recommend.

Update: Roomate’s review:

That’s really bad … If I don’t like it, that’s saying something.


Totino’s Classic Pepperoni

This one actually has proper full slices of pepperoni! That’s it. It’s just a regular ol’ Totino’s but with normal pepperoni. I didn’t know they had this, but I also prefer their pizzas that have more toppings, so I likely won’t buy it very often.

The pepperoni is super thin, and is honestly barely even noticeable when you’re eating it. It almost tastes like a straight cheese pizza, which is fine I guess. I highly recommend just getting their supreme or three-meat instead.

Red Baron Thin & Crispy Supreme

This one’s super similar to the Thin & Crispy Pepperoni I posted a few years ago. As usual, Red Baron makes an excellent pizza. If you’re into the thin crusts, this is a great choice.

I generally prefer thicker crusts, and Red Baron’s Brick Oven crust is definitely my first choice from them, but this one along with their classic crust are still great options.

Not much to say, really. It’s a good pizza.

Freschetta Gluten Free Pepperoni

It’s been a while since I posted a new pizza. I’ve been working on a startup for some time now, and since I don’t have a stable income, I’ve been eating an obscenely large number of Totino’s Party Pizzas.

Today though, I wanted something new. I’ve loved all of the other Freschetta pizzas I’ve tried, and this one seemed like an interesting new type. I don’t think I’ve had a gluten free pizza before, so this is a fairly new thing for me.

Overall it’s good! The crust is obviously quite different from a typical thin crust pizza, and I don’t think it’s quite as good as most, but it’s not bad. The cheese and pepperoni are both quite good, so it balances it out quite well.

I probably won’t buy another one of these, since there are cheaper and better thin crust pizzas (the CPK Signature Pepperoni, for example), but it’s not bad if you want a potentially healthier option.

Freschetta Gluten-Free Pepperoni

It’s been a while since I’ve tried a new frozen pizza, and I was in the mood for something different from my usual choices. While I generally love gluten, I was curious what an incredible brand like Freschetta could pull off with a gluten-free crust. Unsurprisingly, it’s excellent! This is easily the second-best thin-crust pizza I’ve had, only just below California Pizza Kitchen’s incredible Signature Pepperoni pizza.

Like all of Freschetta’s pizzas, the ingredients on this one are very good quality, and have a perfectly balanced taste, with nothing over- or under-done. I really like it. If you’re into the gluten-free thing, this is a great option, and even if you’re not, this is a great pizza regardless.

Great Value Thin Crust Three Meat Pizza

Sometimes I think a cheap-ish pizza that’s not from Totino’s might be good. They’re not. Ever.

The crust on this pizza is tough, tasteless, crunchy, and just bad. The toppings are lacking, but not atrocious. For a cheap pizza, it’s surprisingly good cheese, which makes it at least makes it good enough for me to finish eating it, but really only because I’m hungry.

Sam’s Choice Stuffed Crust 5-Meat Pizza

Still on the quest for a good stuffed-crust frozen pizza, I decided to try this one from Sam’s Choice. It’s pretty good! Overall it has pretty good quality ingredients, while the crust leaves a bit to be desired. It’s definitely better than the DiGiorno stuffed crust options, and is actually one of the best pizzas I’ve had in a while. I’d certainly recommend it.

California Pizza Kitchen White Recipe

I wasn’t sure what I’d think about this one. It has spinach and a selection of cheeses on top of a creamy garlic sauce, on a thin crust. The cheese sounds great, the garlic sounds okay, and the spinach… well I don’t particularly care for that. Oddly, it tastes fairly flavorless overall. Compared to a typical pizza covered in toppings, this one just kind of tastes unfinished, like it needed something more. It’s not necessarily bad, but it definitely isn’t the kind of pizza I care for. I’ll probably go eat something else instead.

Red Baron Thin & Crispy Pepperoni

Red Baron pretty much always makes a good pizza. This one is no exception.

The thin crust has a very similar flavor and feel to the Red Baron Classic Crust pizza, and the toppings match it just about perfectly. If you’re in the mood for a thin crust pizza and like the Red Baron flavor, this is a great option.

Compared with something like the California Pizza Kitchen Signature Pepperoni pizza, Red Baron’s feels a bit plain, but since I’ve had a hard time finding CPK’s Pepperoni lately, this is good enough.
