Frozen Friday: Red Baron - Singles Pepperoni French Bread Pizza

Red Baron Singles Pepperoni French Bread Pizza comes in a pack of 2 individually wrapped frozen pizzas topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni that can be oven-baked of microwaved.

A 10.8-ounce box retails for about $5.29 or about $2.50 to $3.00 on sale.

French Bread Pizza is one of those things that feel like you can easily make at home since French bread is easy to get. You just cut a piece of French bread in half, spread pizza sauce, mozzarella, and pepperoni. Pop it in the oven for a bit and "Voila!" French bread pizza! You can even make it in one of those sandwich presses. For that reason, I prefer pizza crust pizza over French bread.
The crisping box for the pizza was a little too big and didn't do a good job of crisping the crust during microwave cooking. The result was a pretty soft crust. Boooo!
Red Baron uses a thicker cut of pepperoni that delivers on the flavor front but won't crisp too well regardless of where/how you cook it. I guess if you took a brulee torch to it, it might crisp nicely.
The cheese melts nicely and the sauce is reasonably tart and slightly sweet but the overall result is a bit plain and bready.  French bread is fairly thick and the Red Baron's version is a bit on the dense side which makes it just okay and leaves me wanting for a proper, thinner pizza crust.

  1. hey brandeating, you know whats good?  the red baron pan pizza.  the one that comes with that paper "pan".  good stuff.

  2. $5 wow... rather just go to lil ceasers and get a large pie.

  3. Little Caesars and even Domino's have really changed the cheap pizza market. I generally agree, but there is one advantage to frozen pizza, especially when it's broken up into two portions like this. You can keep it in the freezer for a long while and eat it when you want pizza, but don't want to leave the house or pay a delivery charge. It's purely convenience.

  4. These are pretty decent in a toaster oven. I grew up on these things.

  5. Dont Microwave It. Gets chewy
