Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza Formaggio Review

Trader Joe's Bambino Pizza Formaggio

Currently, there are no children on the Freezer Meal Frenzy staff, which means we’re probably not the target audience for the Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza Formaggio. Still, we believe that there should be no age limits on frozen pizza. We may not be bambini, but we still wanted to give these mini pizzas a try.

Now this isn’t our first time trying out a bambino pizza from the Trader Joe’s… err, Trader Giotto’s line. We reviewed the pepperoni version a while back. Today, however, we’re sampling something with a bit less meat on it. Of course, even though these are plain cheese pizzas, that doesn’t mean they are vegetarian-friendly, as the cheeses contain animal rennet. Sorry, vegetarians!

Inside the box are four small pizzas, which are divided into two packets. We decided to cook up half the box, which was a pretty easy process. After about 10 minutes in the oven, our cheese had bubbled, and our pizza was ready to eat.

This is a plain cheese pizza, but the flavor profile here is surprisingly complex. This is an interesting blend of cheeses; romano, provolone, parmesan, and mozzarella are all in the mix. The cheese is heavily seasoned with oregano, and the sauce has a slight season to it as well.

The crust is fairly thick, and it’s slightly doughier than we’d prefer. If it weren’t for the browned edges, we actually would have thought our pizza was undercooked. The softness does make the pizza easy to eat. We devoured everything on our plates in no time.

Even though kids might be the target audience for Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza Formaggio, it’s something that adults will appreciate as well. As a matter of fact, because it’s not a basic cheese pizza, this dish may be better suited to grown-ups. No matter how old you are, these frozen TJ’s pizzas are worth a try.

Kids are not the “target audience” for the Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza — bambino, in this usage, refers to the small (baby) SIZE of the pizza

Check out the ingredients. Animal rennet is NOT vegetarian. Really disappointed to find this on the list.
