Fight’N Tomato – Chorizo & Jalapeno

2017-09-08 21.43.26

This is confirmation that Fight’N Tomato makes pizzas that aren’t bad, they’re just not for me. Like with the first Fight’N Tomato pizza I tried, I mainly tasted tomato sauce and a little bit of crust. The chorizo and jalapenos did give it a tiny bit of additional flavoring, just not enough.

Urban Pie Mission District Pizza – North End

2017-08-20 19.34.34

Quite the interesting find. I liked it. I tend to be picky about just how truffle I taste when adding truffle sauce to anything, so I’m happy to report this pizza had the perfect amount of truffle flavoring; not overpowering, but enough to set this apart from all the other pizzas I’ve tried. Additionally, the creamy alfredo sauce was perfectly blended with the asiago, romano, mozzarella, fontina AND parmesan cheese. I love cheese! A very unique tasting pizza. Not quite a top favorite, but worthy of eating again.

My previous sampling of an Urban Pie Mission District pizza went just as well. I’ll try more of their offerings soon.

California Pizza Kitchen – Fire Roasted Vegetables

2015-12-26 18.17.42

This was more of an appetizer or side dish than a true meal. Though the taste was good, something was missing. My recurring thought was that the lack of meat combined with such thin dough really hurt the pizza. That doesn’t seem right seeing as how “thin and lacking meat” is basically the definition of this pizza and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed other thin meatless varieties, so I think this means it lacked substance. It was like I hardly ate anything at all.

Fight’N Tomato – Pepperoni Pizza

2017-07-07 12.55.37

I thought “Fight’N Tomato” was just a catchy but meaningless name, but it actually refers to the overwhelming amount of tomato sauce on the pizza. Overwhelming to my taste buds at least. Too much for me. Almost all I tasted was tomato sauce. I’m sure there’s an audience for this, but I prefer tasting the cheese and toppings, too.

Screamin’ Sicilian – Lots of Pepperonis

2017-07-01 19.58.40

I first tried this pizza over a year ago but forgot to type a review!

When I first saw the box, I wondered if this was all gimmick.  The giant mouth is certainly eye-catching.

That’s not the case.

I’m happy to report that the taste is as appealing as the box.  This is one of the best frozen pepperoni pizzas (and best frozen pizzas period) out there.  Screamin’ Sicilian is right up there with Home Run Inn and California Pizza Kitchen’s pepperoni offerings.  Seeing as how I prefer thin crust, I was shocked to find a thick crust pizza I love so much.

The Screamin’ Sicilian Lots of Pepperonis lives up to its name. This thing was stacked with big, flavorful chopped chunks.

The pepperonis were held together by some of the gooeyest (is that even a word?), most amazing cheese in the world.  This is probably why it reminds me of a thick crust pizza from Pizza Hut which I haven’t had in years, but I rememer having very gooey cheese.  Also reminds me a bit of a BJ’s Brewhouse pizza.

Big thanks to Matt. He and my dad helped me build a shed before eating this for dinner. That involved 6+ hours in the Texas sun.  I’m happy to say he was equally impressed with this dinner offering.

I’m buying this again and crave more as I type my review a day later.

Digiorno – Spinach, Mushroom & Garlic

2017-06-27 22.33.57

Huge disappointment. Very plain. I’d greatly prefer a simple Digiorno pepperoni pizza. I noticed the lack of pepperonis more than the presence of mushroom, spinach and garlic.

I’m sure the thickness of the crust played a huge role in my opinion of how plain this tasted and not really noticing the additional ingredients.  Too much dough drowns out the toppings.  I used to prefer thick pizzas, but all the sampling I’ve done these past few years has turned me into a huge fan of thin crusts.

If I can find a thin crust version, I might try it.

Market Pantry – Rising Crust Pepperoni

2016-01-04 01.52.06

Tastes like Digiorno. I consider Digiorno pepperoni pizza to be your average, solid, plain-but-good pepperoni pizza. This is Target’s private label equivalent just like HEB Classic Selections is HEB’s. The Market Pantry and HEB Classic Selections self-rising pepperoni pizzas even weigh exactly the same according to their boxes (28.3 oz), so I suspect they are 100% the same thing but with a different store brand slapped onto the box. Anyway, I like Digiorno, so the comparison is not a bad thing. I’ve been spoiled by all the even better pizzas though so I don’t see myself buying this again.

Purchased for $4.69 at Target.  28.3 oz, $.17/oz.
