Eating this was almost like paying a 4-star chef (I’d say 5-star but come on now, this is frozen pizza we’re talking about) to take a piece of comfort food and dress it up to be just a little bit better. I used to eat Red Baron exclusively growing up (hence “comfort food”) and got sick of it. I guess absence does make the heart grow fonder.
The brick oven baked crust had a thin, crispy, airy texture that allowed the topping flavors to shine. I now realize I prefer thin crusts over the slighlty thicker crusts I ate as a kid, so crust depth likely played a role in how much more I enjoyed this than previous Red Baron purchases.
