Bellatoria Ultimate 5 Cheese Ultra Thin Crust Pizza Review

Bellatoria Ultimate 5 Cheese Ultra Thin Crust Pizza

Another day, another pizza.

We’ve been on a pizza-reviewing frenzy lately, scarfing down pies from Lotzza Motzza, Totino’s, and Bellatoria. And we’re not slowing down. Today we’re checking out the Bellatoria Ultimate 5 Cheese Ultra Thin Crust Pizza. Now, we should point out that we really like some of Bellatoria’s specialty pizzas, but we tend to find their more traditional offerings to be much less exciting. And well, it doesn’t get more traditional than a plain cheese pizza.

So let’s dig in and see how this one holds up to our taste buds, which have been refined over several years of reviewing frozen food.

First, though, we need to cook this. It’s a simple process, really. Just preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, then place the pizza in for 10 to 15 minutes (we needed the full 15). The instructions say to just place the pizza directly on the oven rack, but we always use a baking sheet for our pizzas, and this has never caused a problem of any kind.

Perhaps inspired by their cousins over at Lotzza Motzza, Bellatoria really took the cheese portion seriously here. The package boasts that this thing has more than a half pound of real cheese on it, in a blend that contains mozzarella, asiago, provolone, romano, and fontina. We have to admit, the over-indulgence of cheese here is really winning us over. This stuff is thick, stretchy, and satisfactorily yummy.

Of course, it’s also sprinkled with oregano, pepper, and basil to give it some of that Italian zest. We definitely appreciate this.

Bellatoria stacks all of this goodness on top of their thin, crackery crust and kind-of-acidic-tasting red sauce. Neither of these is amazing, but both do their respective jobs well enough. The sauce does create a little bit of a weird aftertaste, but the delicious cheese helps to mitigate that quite a bit.

The box considers a third of the pizza to be a serving, but we think a half is probably more reasonable. If you stick with the box’s recommendation, you’re looking at 360 calories (170 from fat) and 820 mg of sodium. If you go with the Freezer Meal Frenzy serving size and eat half the pizza, that becomes 549 calories (255 from fat) and 1,230 mg of sodium. No matter how you slice it, this is no diet food.

The Bellatoria Ultimate 5 Cheese Ultra Thin Crust Pizza is a pretty good pie. Despite being one of the more ordinary offerings in the Bellatoria line, this also ends up being one of the better ones. While we’ve compared other Bellatoria pizzas to Totino’s in terms of quality, this one rises above the rest to be worthy of the six-dollar asking price. (If you purchase this directly from the Bernatello’s website, you’re looking at $9.99, but Target sells these for $5.69, which seems like a reasonable price for this particular pizza.)
