Going into this, I thought for sure that Freschetta was the best frozen pizza. I haven’t had it in a while, but I always liked it more than Digiorno’s. However, I think in recent years, Digiorno’s has actually made improvements that put it a little ahead of Freschetta in the frozen pizza game. Still, this Freschetta was pretty good lazy Sunday football food!
I just wanna note that this pizza is pretty big, with a thick crust that fills you up. I got full about halfway into the pizza, and it’s def good for sharing. The crust is crispy and tastes dense in the thicker parts, but stays softer towards the top where the toppings are. When you take a bite, there’s a good chance that the bottom of the crust will kind of crack and possibly make your slice a little hard to hold. Freschetta uses a good amount of cornmeal, which you don’t really see often with frozen pizzas, but the crust is generally pretty tasteless and that’s unfortunate. I didn’t bother to eat the end pieces unless they had cheese or sauce on them. The sauce is tangy and spicy with a thick consistency, and they for sure have an advantage over Digiorno’s here. The cheese is mozzarella with a surprisingly decent taste. It’s chewy and congeals pretty well into one coherent sheet of cheese. It’s subject to getting stringy when you take a bite, which is a positive. Pro tip: I put grated parmesan on the pizza before I cook it- I think it gives it a little bit of extra yum. Last but not least, the pepperonis are above average. The taste isn’t amazing or anything, but they’re little thicker than what you usually get.
