Devour “The Carnivore” Pizza Review

Devour "The Carnivore" Pizza

We’re not sure how Devour’s pizza became “the official frozen pizza of the UFC.” It’s not that Devour doesn’t make delicious pizzas — they make great-tasting products no matter what category of food they’re throwing together — but Devour isn’t exactly known for making healthy foods. When you take a look at Devour’s “The Carnivore” frozen pizza, for example, you probably don’t picture a UFC fighter at peak health. So it seems odd to us that UFC and Devour managed to pair up at all.

Regardless of unexpected pairings, The Carnivore looks like an amazing pizza, so we’re very excited to get to try it out today.

First off, we should mention right off the bat that we love this pizza. The reason we want to get that out of the way as soon as possible is that we have a list of observations that might make it seem otherwise. We do love this.

However, Devour made some choices here that are a little confusing. Most importantly, they left off the traditional slices of pepperoni. Now, there’s pepperoni here, but it’s in the diced cube form and not the classic round slices. Because of that, the meat selection seems skewed heavily in favor of the sausage. We’re divided on this because some Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers prefer sausage to pepperoni, while others prefer pepperoni to sausage. Obviously, Team Sausage was very enthusiastic about the amount of sausage here, while Team Pepp felt like they got the short end of the stick. (To be fair, pepperoni-lovers might be more at home with Devour’s Three Way Pepp Pizza.)

Another strange thing about this pizza is that the sauce has an almost-BBQ-like flavor to it. This flavor is super subtle, to the point where we’re not sure if we were imagining it or not, but it made us wonder why Devour didn’t use a BBQ sauce instead of a red sauce. This is definitely the sort of pizza that would benefit from a BBQ sauce.

We also think this could use a little more cheese.

But what’s here is lovely. It’s a meaty mix that has a bit of kick to it, and it’s served on a crust that we find to be pretty tasty. The crust is a little crisp around the edges and soft everywhere else, and it serves as a good bed upon which the rest of the ingredients sit.

So, we mentioned calories earlier in this review, and now we’re going to do it. It’s not because we want to bum you out (though this information will certainly darken your day a bit), but because we think you should eat responsibly when you’re consuming frozen food.

Now, Devour somehow thinks a good serving size for this pizza is 1/5 of a pizza. First off, how do you even cut this into fifths? Secondly, anyone who’s being honest with themselves knows that a half pizza is a more realistic serving size if you’re considering this a meal and not just a light snack. If you eat a half of this pizza, you’ll end up consuming 950 calories and 2,100 mg of sodium. You can see why we were puzzling over the UFC’s endorsement of this pizza, right?

Devour’s “The Carnivore” pizza is big on flavor, but it’s also big on calories. While we love Devour’s food, we have to warn you against eating it regularly. This is once-in-a-while food for people who want to indulge; it certainly shouldn’t be treated as an everyday meal.
