REVIEW – Freschetta: Naturally Rising Crust Pepperoni Pizza
We tried a frozen pepperoni Freschetta pizza from the grocery store. The instructions say to cook the pizza at 400 degrees for 21-24 minutes.
We cooked it in the oven for 24 minutes, and when we took it out, the pizza didn't look cooked all the way through so we tried cooking it for another 5 minutes, then tried cooking it for another 10 minutes. So we ended up cooking the pizza for about 40 total minutes in the oven before the edges of the crust looked OK and the cheese was melted and golden brown.
When we started eating the pizza, the middle of the pizza still felt soft, doughy, and undercooked even though it was cooked for 40 minutes. The pizza still tasted a little better than some other frozen pizzas (like DiGiorno).
The self-rising crust was nice and thick, and the sauce was a little sweet but tasted fine. The pepperonis were also good and not overly salty. There were exactly 17 pepperoni slices on the pizza so it could have used more pepperonis, but overall, the pizza tasted OK.Food: Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pepperoni Pizza
