These frozen, ready made pizza crusts were a new item at my local grocery storeÂ for $5.29.Â The package containsÂ four personal size pizza crusts, andÂ I became quite excited at the prospect of a quick cooking option for when I have a pizza craving emergency.
Unfortunately, I was sadly disappointed. On my first pizza attempt, I prebaked/toasted the crust as recommended on the package before adding toppings and the final baking. BIG MISTAKE.Â The pizza crust was so hard and crunchy I could hardly eat it. So, I tried again, this time very lightly toasting the crust, thinking that I just cooked it too long the first time. Wrong again! It was very hard and crunchy- again. Ok, so I figure third time is a charm and I don’t toast the crust at all. Viola! An edible pizza is the result.
I realized that when it says on the bag “premium bread”, that’s really all this crust is- a medium thickness piece of rice bread, and a mediocre tasting piece at that. The crust is a combination of grainy and spongeyÂ with the distinctÂ ”rice” flavor ( which I am not really find of.) However, the crust help up well under the sauce and ingedients, and did not flake apart orÂ become soggy.Â Oh well, I guess I am too picky about my pizza; this isn’t a product I would buy again.
Pros: holds toppings and sauce well, nice personal size crust for easy prep
Cons: so-so flavor, tastes like regular rice bread
