Central Market HEB – Artichoke & Peppers

2016-10-05 21.58.37.jpg

I think this is the first time the Central Market line has disappointed me. While not a bad pizza, it doesn’t come close to measuring up to the rest of this line’s offerings. The artichoke doomed this one for me.  One of the best and most unique pizzas I ever had was Artichoke Basille’s Artichoke Pie, but it didn’t work for me on this Central Market variant. Didn’t hate it, but I strongly preferred the bites devoid of artichoke. This is unfortunate because artichoke was by far the most prominent flavor due to how thick and plentiful the pieces were. I could barely taste the cheese. I tend to prefer pizzas where I taste more cheese, hence my previous review receiving high marks.

I wouldn’t turn this down if it were offered to me, but I will not purchase again.

Purchased at HEB for $4.98.  14.1oz, $.35/oz.

P.S. – The Pizza Dog makes a cameo at the bottom of the pic.  He was searching for pizza scraps.

Central Market HEB – Amalfi Coast

2016-10-04-15-04-13

Imagine my excitement when I walked into HEB and realized there were three new Central Market pizzas I hadn’t tried yet. Of course I bought all three although I haven’t even posted all my already written reviews of pre-existing Central Market pizzas.

When I ate the “Amalfi Coast” pizza, I continued my tradition of eating pizza for lunch when working from home. The taste of “spinach, squeezed lemon and italian cheese” is as wonderful as it sounds. I mainly tasted cheese (no complaint there), but the hint of spinach (which it turns out I’m fond of on pizza) and lemon (never thought I’d like lemon on pizza) gave it enough of a twist to set it apart from being just another (good) cheese pizza.

This pizza is one I will purchase again for the enjoyment rather than in the name of trying every frozen pizza in existence.

Purchased at HEB for $4.98.  13.8oz, $.36/oz.
