Great Value Mini Deep Dish

At this point it’s quite rare to see a frozen pizza I haven’t covered on this blog before. This is one of them! It comes in a variety of choices, including pepperoni, three-meat, and supreme. I got the supreme, and it’s really good!

It’s $4 for 4 small ~4″ pizzas, which isn’t as good of a deal as a Totinos’ Party Pizza, but for something a bit more interesting it’s not a bad deal either. I’d definitely recommend them if you want an alternative to the Red Baron mini deep dish pizzas… I’d maybe even say I prefer these ones.

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.

Tenney’s Pizza

I’ve become a little obsessed with Tenney’s lately. They’re just so incredibly cheap, and they deliver, unlike Little Caesar’s. Their pan crust is pretty good, and their cheese sticks are great.

This time I was a bit adventurous. I’m not super picky with my toppings, but I generally avoid things like pineapple and jalapeƱos. This time I got both! It’s actually a really good mix. I don’t love the texture of pineapple on a pizza, but it’s not bad with this one.

And of course I got cheese sticks. Two orders of them, since you can get a second for only $3. They were particularly cheesy this time!

If you’re in the mood for some good, cheap pizza, you really can’t go wrong with Tenney’s. As long as you get the pan crust. It’s only an extra dollar (at least on the medium).

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.

Tenney’s Pan Crust

I keep going back to Tenney’s because I love their cheese sticks, then end up disappointed by their pizzas. This time I gave in and spent the extra dollar on the pan crust. It’s not bad! Their pan crust is about as thick as most places’ hand tossed crusts, but it helps the balance with the ingredients a lot.

I got this one with pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, yellow onions, tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and red hot peppers. It’s not a bad combination, but probably not my favorite. Their 12 toppings at no extra cost is still a great deal, even with the quality of the toppings being a bit less than your typical pizza place.

And of course I had to go with the extra order of cheese sticks for only $3.

They’re so good.

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.

Marco’s Pizza

This one’s interesting. The pizza’s not bad, but nothing special. I got the All Meat pizza that includes pepperoni, ham, Italian sausage, and bacon. The toppings are good quality, but the crust leaves a lot to be desired. I feel like a slightly different crust would make this an incredible pizza, but the current one holds it back quite a bit.

Their “cheesybread” though. That stuff’s really good. Kind of like my experience with Two Jack’s recently, I’d get Marco’s again for the cheese bread, not the pizza. Two Jack’s cheese sticks are still by far the best I’ve had, but these are still excellent.

Tenney’s Pizza

I’ve known about Tenney’s Pizza for a while, with a few different people recommending I try it over the last couple years. Today I finally gave in. I was intending to go buy groceries and make a more practical dinner, but the idea of trying a new pizza place sounded too good.

Tenney’s pricing is awesome. Their large (14″) pizza includes up to 12 toppings at no extra charge for only $9. I decided to go with pepperoni, sausage, ham, green peppers, parmesan cheese, and yellow onions. I also got some of the cheese sticks to make sure my order was over the $10 minimum for delivery.

You get what you pay for with pizza like this. It’s not a bad pizza by any means, but it’s certainly not up to the level of quality you’d expect buying from Pizza Hut or Domino’s. Overall though, I’m very satisfied. The pizza arrived only 15 minutes after I placed my order, and the pizza and cheese sticks are both pretty good.
