Good Afternoon Foodies – I hope everyone’s start to the new year has been a good one! I don’t eat a ton of pizza, because lactose and I don’t get along, but occasionally I will indulge and eat some cheese. Walmart has recently released some breakfast pizzas, pretzel crusts pizzas, and some dessert pizzas. We picked up the Hot Honey Pepperoni Pizza and another one which will pop up on the blog in a few days.
Let’s start with my deep deep love for anything pretzel. I would say that pretzels are my favorite snack food, pretzel bagels are my go to on the weekends, mickey pretzels are my favorite at Disneyland, and pretzel pizza crust? I am all about it.
A couple of things to note up front, this pizza is GREASY. That’s pretty par for the course with pepperoni however because of the way that these pepperonis curl, it really traps the grease. Secondly, this pizza is very doughy. I found that with this pizza and the other that I needed to cook them longer than the suggested time on the box. Pizza number 2 was very underbaked.
I didn’t read the fine print on the box and was completely under the impression that the pepperoni was hot honey flavored. I ate one of the pepperonis off the pizza before actually taking a bite and said to myself “what the heck?!” as it tasted like normal pepperoni (because, wow it was!) The sauce is in fact hot honey flavored and it was quite tasty. As a whole, I really liked this pizza. My only complaint that the crust didn’t seen overly pretzel-y to me, it had more of the texture of a regular pan pizza. Either way, I would eat this again, however, be prepared for some serious heartburn after.
