Bellatoria Roasted Mushroom ‘n Spinach Ultra Thin Crust Pizza Review

Bellatoria Roasted Mushroom 'n Spinach Ultra Thin Crust Pizza

It hasn’t been that long since we reviewed a frozen pizza here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, but every moment we’re away from the cheesy goodness of pizza feels like a lifetime. So we’re happy to be tasting the Bellatoria Roasted Mushroom ‘n Spinach Ultra Thin Crust Pizza today.

We’ve been picking away at the Bellatoria line for a while now, and one thing we’ve noticed is that the basic pizzas tend to be just alright, while the fancier, weirder pizzas tend to be very good (their five-cheese pizza is one exception — it’s as basic as it gets, yet it’s still wonderful). When we picked up this spinach-and-mushroom pizza, we knew it could go either way. It’s not necessarily the most basic of pizzas, but it’s not as experimental as, say, the Sunday Brunch Sausage Scramble Pizza that we adore.

One thing we noticed right away is that this pizza hardly weighs anything. You’ll likely notice this when you first take the pizza out of the box. We’re going to go out on a limb and say this probably isn’t a very filling meal, but we’ll report on that with more confidence once we’ve actually eaten some of it.

Cooking this pizza is about as simple as you’d expect. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, stuff the pizza in the oven, then let it cook ten to fifteen minutes. We used a baking sheet for ours, which we pretty much always do for frozen pizza. (If you want to read the baking instructions straight off the box, check out our package scans at the bottom of this review.)

Right away, we should point out that this pizza doesn’t use a red sauce. Instead, it goes with a garlic butter, which is intended to be a better match for the mushrooms and spinach than a red sauce would be. While we appreciate the choice, we’re curious about how this might taste with a red sauce.

The mushrooms here are definitely not high-quality; they’re the mushy, slimy sort of mushrooms you usually get in a can. That said, they have a really strong mushroomy flavor, which we actually kind of enjoy.

The spinach portion is kind of meager. There’s not really enough for it to have a substantial place in the overall flavor profile, especially when you consider how flavorful the mushrooms are. Plus, the garlic butter makes a big splash in the flavor department as well, so the spinach never really has a chance to stand out.

The cheese here is a blend of mozzarella and asiago. It’s a suitable blend for this pizza, though we wish there were more of it — especially after being spoiled by Bellatoria’s Ultimate 5 Cheese Pizza, which was loaded up with the stuff.

As you probably guessed already, this is no diet food. One serving, which is a third of the pizza, contains 300 calories and 540 mg of sodium. That means that half a pizza (which is a more likely serving size) contains 450 calories and 810 mg of sodium. While this isn’t made for dieters, those numbers are actually not that bad for half a pizza.

However, as we expected before we ever cooked this thing, this pizza simply isn’t very filling. We split ours between two reviewers, and neither felt completely satisfied when all the pizza had been eaten. This is a pretty skimpy pie.

The Bellatoria Roasted Mushroom ‘n Spinach Ultra Thin Crust Pizza is just alright. The mushrooms do a lot of talking here, which we appreciate, but nothing else really stands out for us. Bellatoria makes some really great pizzas, but this one is nothing to get excited about.
