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.

Two Jack’s Pizza – Provo, Utah

I’ve heard lots of good things about Two Jack’s, so it was about time I tried it. I got a 2-topping pizza with pepperoni and sausage/olives, and cheese sticks.

So those cheese sticks. Never has there been a more delicious pile of cheese. They’re perfect. A ton of cheese, and a light garlic accent.

The pizza is excellent too. The crust leaves a bit to be desired, but the toppings are exellent quality. It pales in comparison to the cheese sticks, but it’s still great pizza.

Kroger Double Pepperoni Pizza

Take-and-bake grocery store pizzas can vary quite a bit in quality. This one is actually really good! The crust was fairly decent, and the cheese was good, though I certainly wouldn’t consider this amount of pepperoni to be “double” as it was barely enough to get some on each slice. Overall, not a bad choice at all if you want a cheap, fast pizza.

Pieology Pizzeria

This is another one of those build-your-own pizza places that we’ve gotten a ton of here the last few months. This one is decent, but like most of them, is nothing special. I’d put it about half way between Blaze and MOD.

I got the Butcher’s Choice pizza and added green peppers and red onions. The crust left a lot to be desired, but the toppings were fantastic quality. If you’re in the area, it’s not a bad choice.

MOD Pizza

Yet another new pizza restaurant has opened by my house! This one is a lot like Blaze pizza. It’s basically Subway but for pizza, which is a wonderful thing. You can either build your own pizza with whatever toppings, cheese, and sauce you’d like, or pick from one of their “classics.”

I went with their ‘mad dog’ three-meat pizza. It’s delicious. The crust, sauce, cherse, and toppings are all excellent, and the crust in particular is really good. I highly recommend MOD Pizza if there’s one in your area.
