Not long ago I had stopped in Walmart to pick up a few groceries. It was suppose to be a quick in and out trip but while the kids were picking out yogurt something in the frozen case caught my eye. It was this Marifano Margherita Pizza. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of frozen pizzas. After you’ve had the real deal fresh out of a wood fire oven, they just don’t quite excite the taste buds. But since I don’t happen to have a pizza oven and can’t got trotting into a restaurant for one anytime I want, frozen just has to make do to satisfy my craving.
Now this pizza, the thing that caught my interest was the fact that it’s wood-fired and made with real mozzarella cheese, not the shredded stuff you usually see on frozen pizzas. Well that and the box made it look pretty darn good.
Out of the box it looks a bit sparse on the cheese. I wasn’t feeling real confident about it.
Once it came out of the oven though, my feelings took a turn. The cheese was melty, gooey and spread all over. And the crust … perfect.
What wasn’t so impressive was the serious lack of sauce on this pizza. I had to actually pull up the cheese to see if maybe they forgot to put it on there but it’s there, just very light. I can say that I would definitely buy it again because it tasted quite good, I think I would just grab a bottle of marinara sauce to dip it in.
*I have no relationship with Marifano or Walmart, this is a personal discovery while shopping.
