This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Tony’s Pizza. All opinions are 100% mine.
I received 8 free sample coupons for Tony’s New Crispy Crust pizzas. At our supermarket the pizzas were 2 for $3.00. The serving size says 2 but the pizza is pretty much a personal size, at least for me. The pizza is square with rounded corners and comes in three flavors cheese, pepperoni and supreme. Cheese was sold out at our store, so I got two pepperoni and one supreme.
The intructions say to cook the pizza between 12 and 14 minutes at 400 degrees. That is with the pizza directly on the rack and in a pre-heated oven. Did I follow the directions? No. I was too concerned about taking photos for the post and documenting everything and keeping Eva away from the stove to correctly follow direction. So instead I just turned on the oven, took a few shots of the frozen pizza.
And some close up shots.
I put the pizzas right into the oven on the same cookie sheet, a large one. Both pizzas fit on the sheet at the same time, so with two pizzas I had roughly the same size pizza as one of the large pizzas we usually eat when we have frozen pizza.
After 14 minutes I knew I hadn’t left the pizzas in long enough so another couple minutes here and there till I got things just right. When the crust looked golden and delicious I took the pizzas out and cut them up so that Allison and I basically had the same size pizza and we had two Eva sized strips of each pizza as well.
We eat many different types of pizza and often we get the more premium frozen pizzas, when they are on sale. However, we sometimes get a more economical choice like Tony’s Pizza which will do for a decent pizza meal. Prior to this free sample tasting I had bought 3 of Tony’s larger pizzas because I wanted the coupons for the Ninja Turtles video game but screwed up and lost my receipt, I still enjoyed the pizza though.
The new Tony’s Crispy Crust was very good, I could tell it was going to be crispy when I cut the pizza. Then trying the pizza I enjoyed the texture and crunch from each bite. I liked the overall taste of the pizza. While there was nothing really outstanding about it overall, it was still tasty. I liked the pepperoni more than the supreme even though both were loaded up with toppings. Allison liked the pizza but thought the sauce was a little bland which I disagreed with. Bland isn’t really a problem for me anyway because I usually put hot sauce on everything and would add banana peppers to future pizzas. I would also like to go on record as saying that Tony’s Crispy Crust pizza was much better than a certain pizza chain that just relaunched.
Eva devoured her slices.
Having tried the Tony’s Crispy Crust pizzas and seeing how inexpensive they are I would certainly purchase them again for those family nights where we want to eat something light and then watch a family movie or play a game. I swear that pizza is so conducive to such nights. So, thank you Tony’s for the pizza coupons.
