Bellatoria Ultimate Pepperoni Ultra Thin Crust Pizza Review

Bellatoria Ultimate Pepperoni Ultra Thin Crust Pizza

Not too long ago, we were eating tons and tons of pizza. We had to put the breaks on that for a little while, as we might have overdone it a bit, but we’re back at it today, with another cheesy pie to check out. Today’s pizza is the Bellatoria Ultimate Pepperoni Ultra Thin Crust Pizza.

Now, we’re not expecting anything surprising here. We’ve had plenty of Bellatoria pizzas in the past. However, we thought it was important that we put up a review of this specific pizza. Besides, this means we have an excuse to eat more pizza (and believe us when we say that we were starting to have pizza withdrawals!)

If you’ve ever cooked a frozen pizza before, you should have no trouble with this one. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, then toss the pizza in for 10 to 15 minutes. The instructions say to cook it directly on the center rack, but we always use a baking sheet when we bake pizza. (If you want to read the full cooking instructions straight off the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

When you pull this pizza out of the oven, you’ll notice that it’s a real grease monster. Between the cheese and the pepperoni, this thing produces a veritable lake of grease (you can see the orange pool in center of the pizza in the image above). Before we served this, we took a paper towel and dabbed away as much of the grease as we could.

Now, we mentioned earlier that we weren’t expecting any surprises here, and aside from that grease pool, our expectations ended up being pretty spot-on.

This has a thin crust that we wouldn’t necessarily refer to as pub-style. It’s not quite as crackery tasting, and it’s just a little bit crispier than the pub-style crusts we’re used to.

The sauce here is really sweet, to the point where we’re tempted to use the word sugary. This sweetness contrasts really well with the saltiness of the pepperoni here, so it ends up being a great choice.

That pepperoni, however, ends up being a little bit rubbery, making it chewier than your average slice of pepperoni. The flavor is fine, but we were a little bit put off by the consistency.

Considering Bellatoria comes from the same company that makes Lotzza Motzza pizzas (Bernatello’s), we’re a little bit disappointed by the amount of cheese here. This is certainly not a barren cheese desert, like some cheaper frozen pizzas can be, but it doesn’t have that ooey-gooey special mozzarella touch that Lotzza Motzza gives their pizzas. Then again, if you haven’t been absolutely spoiled by Lotzza Motzza (like we have), you might think this is a pretty good amount of cheese. If we’re being truly honest, this amount of cheese is above average for a frozen pizza in this price range.

If you just glance at the nutrition facts really quickly, you might be tricked into thinking this is a low-calorie dinner. 300 calories! What’s wrong with that? Well, that only accounts for a quarter of a pizza. If you can only eat one fourth of this pizza, then 300 calories is what you’ll be eating here. But we think it’s much more likely that you’ll eat about half. This is a thin crust pizza, and it’s not very filling.

The Bellatoria Ultimate Pepperoni Ultra Thin Crust Pizza is a good frozen pizza for five bucks. For some reason, Bernatello’s has this priced at $9.99 on their website, but at the time of this writing, this pizza costs $5.69 at Target. In that price range, this is a pretty good pizza.
