Russo’s – Greek


2015-07-18 Russo's

My original review read “Still good even though I over baked it. I’ll need to try it again and do it right.”

This is the one gluten-free pizza I’ve ever eaten.   I thought I overcooked it because of how overly crisp it seemed.  My boss informed me afterwards that this is what you typically want.  If the crust isn’t crisp, it just doesn’t come out right.  Maybe I did do it right, but I vaguely remember accidentally leaving it in longer than I meant to.  I’ll try at least one of their other varieties and maybe do a gluten-free roundup someday.

Purchased at HEB for $7.99.  13.52oz, $.59/oz.  7 out of 10.  Pretty pricey due to the lack of glutens, but I hear this is common for gluten-free offerings.

Surprisingly good but too small to be filling.  I’ll try out there other varieties soon.

Purchased at HEB for $4.78.  11.9oz, $.40/oz.  7 out of 10.

Full of Life Flatbread – Cheese & Fresh Herb Pizza

First posted…today!  My first straight-to-MannVsPizza post!

2016-01-13 22.24.13.jpgAnother good find, this one from Target!  Similar to the American Flatbread brand both in taste and quality.  Also similar in price, but more on that later.  I love the cheese!  Tasty, gooey, thick.  I don’t know if it’s the herbs baked into it or the cheese itself (probably both), but the flavor is so deliciously strong it is basically a piece of melted cheese on a carb-based delivery device.

The price – unfortunately – is a problem.  I paid $6.99 for a 7.6 oz pie.  That’s $.92/oz.  That’s the highest price/oz I’ve seen.  It’s closest competitor is American Flatbread, which rings in around $.64-$.70/oz depending on the toppings.  $.92/oz is also nearly 3x than $.32/oz; the average per ounce cost of all pizzas I’ve sampled so far.

I prefer the taste of American Flatbread’s 17% larger but 14% cheaper offerings, so Full of Life loses the “Best Frozen Flatbread” war for now.  However, it still tastes great and I plan on trying the other flavors so see if maybe there’s one that completely wows me.  Give it a shot if you don’t mind the price tag!

Purchased at Target for $6.99.  7.6 oz, $.92/oz.  9 out of 10!

Artichoke Basille’s Pizza Co. – The Artichoke Pie

Originally posted 7/3/2015.  This was exciting to try.  Very unique concept I forgot all about.  I’ll purchase another one soon.


Really good! The cheese had a unique taste to it. The only negative is that it was a little too strong and greasy. I only ate half in one sitting. I usually eat 3/4 or the whole thing when trying a new pizza.

Purchased at HEB for $6.98.  18.50 oz, $.38/oz.  9 out of 10!

Gino’s East – Meaty Legend

Originally posted 6/24/15.  I’ll give this one another shot again someday now that I have a new oven.

2015-06-24Tried this tonight. I might have actually eaten one a year ago. Not bad, but pretty forgettable.  I speculate that deep dish pizzas are more difficult to perfect when cooked frozen due to their thickness.

Purchased at HEB for $5.98.  32 oz, $.19/oz.  5 out of 10.  A lot of food per dollar!
