Next up in the frozen pizza quest is Freschetta’s Signature Pepperoni pizza.  The front of the box advertised a “new look” and “naturally rising crust.”  At the bottom it noted that in addition to the standard mozzarella cheese, this pie contained provolone cheese.

I peeled the pizza out of its convenient wrapper, placed it onto a cookie sheet, and into a 400°F.  I set the timer for 23 minutes and check on it when time expired.  The cheese and crust were nicely browned, and I removed it from the over to cook for 4 minutes.

Slicing into the pie I noted the bread like texture of the crust.  I took a bite and was immediately overwhelmed by sweet flavors.  The sauce was very sugary with the tang of the tomatoes almost undetectable. The crust was soft, and you guessed it, also had a sweet flavor.  The pepperoni was thinly sliced,  and I was unable to detect any provolone flavors in the cheese. This pizza was dominated by sweet flavors, which I found to be unappealing.  Overall it was a below average pie that I would avoid purchasing in the future.
