Seems to me (and I could be wrong, usually am) that Newman’s own product launches have picked up since the founder’s passing. No matter, just an observation. Today I took a look at their “All Natural Ingredient” “Uncured Pepperoni” “Thin and Crispy” pie.
At $6.99 at my local Safeway, for a 13.2 oz pizza, Newman’s Own comes in at a little over 53 cents an ounce, not that great a value for frozen pizzas.
The instructions said to bake directly on the shelf at 425 for 10-12 minutes, and I complied. It’s a new oven, so the temp is accurate, and right at 10 minutes, it was a little on the done side.
The crust is definitely ‘thin and crispy’, but that’s my own personal preference, so that was fine with me. The sauce and cheese were relatively mild, with a hint of heat. The pepperoni cupped, which is generally an indication of a higher fat content, but as I am not an expert in these matters, “non-cupping” may well come from preservatives, I simply don’t know.
Did I like it? You bet. Would I pick it up again? Yes, but I will look for sales events.
