7-Eleven Frozen Pizza Review – Nationwide

7-Eleven Frozen Pizza Review A few years back, 7-Eleven made some rather dramatic decisions – to go into the hot, ready to eat food business and to replace many of the standard shelf offerings with house brand merchandise ( 7-Select). Both moves appear to have been very successful. With a history that dates back to the 1920s, and originally […]

Mama Cozzi’s French Bread Pizza Review – An Aldi Product

Another Aldi product this week, actually did this one some time back, didn’t write it up. Mama Cozzi’s is the brand name the Aldi grocery chain has cooked up for their frozen and fresh (take and bake) pizzas. I’ve tried a lot of them, including the one I wrote about directly below, and a “Mega […]

Red Baron Deep Dish Singles Review

I like to check in with the mainstream frozen pizza choices once a year or so.  See if they’ve improved, changed at all. For the most part, I don’t care for any of them, with the exception of hyperlocal brands like Vito and Nicks in Chicago (absolute #1 favorite), and for the pies at Trader […]

Compare & Contrast – Red Baron French Bread Pizza

I’ve reviewed Red Baron products  before, frozen pies brought to you by the good folks at Schwan’s from Minnesota, my home territory.

Today I wanted to take the two French bread pizzas and compare them by cooking one via […]
