Red Baron Deep Dish Singles Pepperoni Pizza Review

Red Baron Deep Dish Singles Pepperoni Pizza

We have to admit: Most of our staffers grew up with DiGiorno being the primary frozen pizza of the household. While we’ve all had Red Baron at some point in the past, we’re not as familiar with the brand over all as we are DiGiorno (or Lotzza Motzza or even Bellatoria). As frozen food reviewers, we thought it was probably important that we familiarize ourselves with the Red Baron brand.

We did check out one of their pizzas not too long ago, and we also tried a pizza melt from the brand. Today we’re tasting the Red Baron Deep Dish Singles Pepperoni Pizza.

Cooking this is simple, and there is a separate crisping tray for each pizza (there are two pizzas per box). Place the pizza on its crisping tray, then pop it in the microwave for two and a half to three and a half minutes. We cooked ours for three minutes, which seemed like the perfect amount of time. It did come out super hot, though, so be careful. (If you want to read the full cooking instructions off the back of the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

The pizza crust is a little tough. It doesn’t have a lot of flavor, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s just a crust, after all. If what’s on top of the crust can satisfy, then we’d call it a success.

The problems begin, however, with the sauce — or the lack thereof. We had so little sauce on our pizza that we were almost convinced this was a sauce-less affair. We don’t know what happened here, but the sauce is so sparse that it might at well be missing.

The pepperoni is easily the best part of this pizza. It works extra hard here, since the pepperoni grease is practically a replacement for the sauce. Somehow, we actually think this works. The pepperoni itself isn’t peppery or spicy in any way, but there’s a decent salty flavor that we kind of enjoy. All in all, the pepperoni is where this pizza shines the brightest.

Now, you can perhaps blame the fact that we’ve eaten lots of Lotzza Motzza pizzas in the past, but we just don’t think this has enough cheese on it. We like our pizzas cheesy here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, and this one doesn’t do it for us.

When we first saw the pizza, we thought it was really small. Once we actually ate it, though, we found ourselves to be pretty full. There are two pizzas in a box, and we think you’ll only need one of them for a small meal. That’s a good thing, because each pizza contains 430 calories and 1,010 mg of sodium. This is no diet food.

We have such mixed feelings about the Red Baron Deep Dish Singles Pepperoni Pizza that it’s hard to give a pithy summary of those feelings. But there’s one thing we haven’t said yet: A box of two pizzas currently costs $3.59 at Target. That’s less than two dollars per pizza. At that price, we’re tempted to say that it’s worth it. No, this is no gourmet pie, and this pales in comparison to Lotzza Motzza, but it’s a somewhat decent, super-cheap option to fill you up on your lunch break. Sometimes, that’s all you really need.
