Frozen Food Review: Frank's RedHot Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

In the WalMart frozen food section, I've recently seen several branded pizzas for sale, including a Frank's RedHot, a Dole pineapple, and a Tony Roma's bbq sauce. At over $5 a pop, however, I had always opted to stick with tried and true brands like DiGiorno, Freschetta, and California Pizza Kitchen. Wally World recently ran a sale, however, on the branded 'zas to around $3, so I figured I'd check out the Frank's and the Roma's (Dole was sold out). The first one that I ate was the Frank's (I was jonesin' some wings anyway).

As someone who isn't a huge fan of thin crusts, especially with frozen pizza, I was skeptical at first, but it did indeed cook to a perfect crispiness. The texture was truly awesome.

The sauce was too creamy instead of buttery. They really should have gone for a margarine-based wing sauce instead of the sandwich spread. That said, it just the right amount of heat for a Frank's-branded product.

The chicken chunks were too small and under seasoned and were sporadically placed here and there and the celery, while conceptually interesting, just ended up with a soggy texture that did little to advance the quality of the product. The blue cheese, while logical, often overpowered all of the other flavors, especially at the center of the pizza.

That said, I find myself picking apart a "good but not great" rather than slamming a bad product. While I cannot recommend Frank's RedHot Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza as an everyday pizza, it is certainly a fun change of pace product, the perfect accompaniment to a Bills or Sabres game, or a diplomatic compromise to an impending "pizza vs. wings" showdown.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 Jim Kellys and Grover Clevelands shoveling 6 feet of snow out of my driveway.
