Sam’s Choice – Sriracha Chicken

2017-01-15-14-19-53

I love it! Walmart does it again! Perfect level of spicyness, tasty cheese (although I wish it were a little stronger), and just enough of a hint of chicken and pineapple to complement the pizza without overpowering it.

I was shocked that the flavor of pineapple blended in so well. There were only a few chunks of pineapple present. I almost wish there was a little more.

I did not taste the ranch at all. I actually forgot this was a chicken sriracha ranch pizza until I took another look at the box. I decided to dip my last slice in some actual ranch dressing* out of curiosity and can confirm the extra flavoring took the pizza to another level.  I hope this pizza gets tweaked to up the ranch flavoring.

The Chicken Sriracha Ranch pizza also appears to be part of a series of non-traditional Sam’s Choice varieties that I will certainly revisit soon. I saw a Philly Cheese Steak one. Not sure what other interesting combos are out there.

This is an all-around GREAT pizza. I’ll purchase again for myself and maybe for a party. Pizzas like this are what make this blog fun.

Purchased at Walmart for $5.98. 31oz, $.19/oz.

*I should note that I normally do not modify pizzas I’m sampling for the first time.  By modify, I mean adding toppings, dipping in sauces, etc.  I used to take the stance that by doing so, I would taint my reviews.  After all, pretty much any pizza tastes good with ranch in my opinion.  Although my review is of the pizza as it is straight out of the box, I thought this was an appropriate time to try something a little different (adding ranch to a ranch pizza sounded fun) and might start to include such excursions as side notes in future posts.

Home Run Inn – Personal Microwavable Pizza

2016-10-07-22-25-01

Well this didn’t quite work out.

I eventually bought and successfully microwaved another one of these mini pizzas. Tasted just like the real (large, oven-baked) thing which happens to be one of my favorite pizzas ever, so consider this personal pan option a huge success.

Purchased at HEB for $2.98.  7.75 oz, $.38/oz.  A small personal pizza will never be the most cost efficient purchase, but I had to give this a try due to my love for Home Run Inn.  That and I actually got this for free thanks to an HEB coupon:)

Garden Harvest by Uno – Uncured Pepperoni on Sweet Potato Crust

2016-12-23-19-14-21

Finally, a non-flour crust I really like!  I couldn’t even taste the sweet potatoe although Pizza Girl certainly did.  There was something slightly different about the crust, but I wouldn’t classify it as tasting like sweet potato.  I did not hurt or help the pizza.  What did help was that the pepperoni, sauce and cheese were all packed with flavor  Very good.

Purchased at HEB for $5.98.  12.75oz, $.47/oz.
