Review: Lunchables Uploaded - Ultimate Deep Dish Pizza with Bacon

Lunchables Uploaded Ultimate Deep Dish Pizza with Bacon features Oscar Mayer bacon bits, Kraft cheese blend, a deep dish pizza crust, and pizza sauce that you assemble into a pizza yourself. Also included is a bottle of spring water, a single-serving packet of Kool-Aid Tropical Punch, Cheez-It crackers, and Oreo cookies.

It's normally around $4.49 for 5.1 oz. of food plus 10 fl oz of water, but I bought this on clearance for $1.

Uploaded seems to be the Lunchables line's largest meal and comes in a cardboard box with an easily-opened flap rather than the typical sectioned plastic tray:


Here's how it all looks taken out of the box:

As you can see there's quite a bit of packaging/pouches with all the individual-sized items. Not sure why they went with spring water and a Kool-Aid packet rather than just a pouch of pre-mixed Kool-Aid. More options, I guess.

The deep dish crust is more or less shaped like a slightly hollowed-out pie crust. There's a nice bit of a shell to it and it's light but hearty.

While some kids might eat this cold at school or maybe put it in the microwave, I put mine together and gave it some toaster oven love.

It turned out pretty nicely, although the cheese melted a little funny:

The bacon didn't quite crisp up but it was an improvement over cold, squishy bacon. There wasn't a whole lot of smoky, bacony goodness to it though.

The cheese, bacon, and crust were actually good together but the sauce was super sweet. Like dessert-level sweet. It tasted like a sweet ketchup with some Italian herbs thrown in. I can only think the sugar helps preserve the sauce and that kids just really love sugar. Regardless, I've never had a pizza sauce that was this sweet.

Overall, Lunchables Uploaded Ultimate Deep Dish Pizza with Bacon would have been nice and decently enjoyable were it not for the almost-candy like pizza sauce that they included. I would have rather just tossed the sauce and made a grilled cheese and bacon pizza out of the given ingredients.
