Frozen Friday: Red Baron - Thick Pan Meat-Trio Pizza for One

Red Baron's Thick Pan Meat-Trio Pizza is designated as a "Feast for One," which apparently means the two servings listed on the nutritional info is for one person. It features a thick, pan-style pizza topped with sausage, pepperoni, and ham.

A 10.29-ounce pizza retails for around $5.29 but I paid $2.50 for this one on sale.

The pictures shows a sprinkling of parmesan atop the pizza, but I guess it all melted into the pizza. Then again, I don't remember seeing any when it was frozen. Maybe, they should include a packet of parmesan separately.

They call it "pan-style" because it's really thick, but the Meat Trio is really more of a overgrown hand-tossed mini-pizza. It reminds me of DiGiorno's personal pizzas. It tastes like warm, chewy bread which isn't bad at all. If you're looking for the crustiness of a pan pizza, you won't find it here. The crisping material didn't really give the bottom any real crispness.

The meat toppings were pretty flavorful and distinct. The pepperoni in particular was thick with a slightly peppery smoky flavor. I could have used a little more meat though. Just a little. The cheese was plentiful and kept the toppings from falling off while delivering some gooey stretch.

In sum, Red Baron's Thick Pan Meat-Trio Pizza for One is pretty decent for frozen pizza. It's convenient to make and can feed two in a pinch. Of the Red Baron Pizza's I've tried, it's definitely one of the better ones.
