Box of Freschetta Pepperoni Pizza
Cooked Freschetta 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.

Slice of Freschetta Pepperoni Pizza

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.

Box of Three Meat DiGiorno Pizza & Wyngz

Cooked Three Meat DiGiorno Pizza
DiGiorno Honey BBQ Wyngz

I tried a frozen DiGiorno three meat pizza that came with a side of honey BBQ chicken wings ("wyngz"). When you open the box, there are three packages -- one with the pizza, one with the wyngz, and one with the wyngz sauce.

I followed the instructions on the box for cooking both the pizza and chicken at the same time. The pizza came out looking fine. The pizza sauce was a smooth sauce, and it was kind of bland and salty. The pepperonis on the pizza were also a little too salty. The crust was a OK - it was a thick, soft crust, and it was a little bit sweet.

DiGiorno Boneless Wyngz in Honey BBQ sauce

There were only six "wyngz", and they were very dry on the inside. The breading on the chicken was also very thick and not crispy, and they didn't taste that great. The honey BBQ sauce was OK and tasted very sweet like other honey BBQ sauces. I dipped the chicken in the honey BBQ sauce rather than pouring the sauce on top since it would have probably been overwhelmingly sweet if I poured the sauce on top.

Does DiGiornos pizza taste like a delivery pizza? No, it definitely tastes like a frozen pizza, and it doesn't even taste like a crappy delivery pizza.

Classic Pepperoni Pizza from Barnes & Noble

When I was at Barnes & Noble I was really hungry and didn't just want a sandwich so I ended up trying their 8-in stone fired pepperoni pizza.

The pizza wasn't very saucy (which I like), and it had a thin crust. The crust tasted sort of like a salty and soft cracker. The pizza was seasoned with oregano, and it was a little salty and oily. The pepperonis on the pizza were savory and a little spicy. Overall, the pizza wasn't too bad, and it was good enough to satisfy my hunger at the time.
