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!

Bon Appetit – Spinaci

2015-06-20Tried this today. Almost as good as Dr. Oetker. About 4x as thick (Dr. Oetker pizzas are very thin). I’ll probably try Bon Appetit’s other varieties someday.

Purchased at HEB for $4.98.  15.40 oz, $.32/oz.  9.5 out of 10!

Home Run Inn, Chicago’s Premium Pizza – Uncured Pepperoni


Here it is, the pizza that started it all!  After slowly sampling a few HEB “Taste of Italy” varieties throughout 2014 and early 2015, on 4/24/15 I decided to branch out and try a random obscure (to me) brand.  Something about Home Run Inn caught my attention.  I remember driving home from HEB with the pizza, baking it, and eating it while watching the first episode of Daredevil on Netflix.  In retrospect, this seems fitting seeing as how the original comic versions of the pizza loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were supposed to have been created by the same accident that blinded Matt Murdock and started him down the path of vigilantism he is known for.

I loved the turtles.

I loved this pizza.

I loved Daredevil.

I decided to post about Home Run Inn…when I tried it a second time two months later.

Now I have a blog.

Funny how things works.

Here’s the original note I took down in Excel on 4/24/15: (more…)

The PizzaMann Cometh

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting this blog!  For about a year, I’ve posted short frozen pizza reviews on Facebook.  Friends seem to love them.  Several urged me to turn the concept into a blog.  That’s why we’re here.  I’ll start transferring those Facebook posts over to this blog soon.  Once that process is complete, I will post all new reviews here and eventually share some analytics based on data I’ve collected along the way.  Until then, happy baking!
