So, it’s 2am. You’re hungry, (bordering on hangry) you’re damn near broke and you want a cheap pizza.
WalMart is just down the street and a few minutes later you’re standing in front of their freezer doors trying to figure out which one is the best.
We fired up our own oven (and pizza stone) to test four popular frozen regular crust pepperoni pizzas.Preview Changes (opens in a new tab)
Michael “took one for the team” and tried each, judging the crust, the quantity and quality of the cheese, pepperoni and sauce. We also looked at the price and judged the overall value.
THE RESULTS ARE IN:
Crust: soft chewy
Pepperoni: ok – tasty but skimpy
Sauce: good but it’s obviously been sweetened
Verdict: 3rd place. Still a pretty good value.
Crust: soft almost doughy
Cheese: Generous, stringy like a good cheese should be
Pepperoni: Edges curled perfectly and tasty oil pooled in the bottom
Sauce: good sauce but a bit too salty
Verdict: 2nd place. Slightly better than Red Baron and a good value.
Bottom Line: While a good homemade pizza beats a frozen pizza every time, if you don’t have time to make one yourself, one frozen pie (Screamin’ Sicilian) stood head and shoulders above the rest.
