Red Baron Classic Crust 4 Cheese Review

By   

At around 28 cents per ounce, this cheese pizza with a purchase price of $5.99 was one of the most expensive we tested. Our panelists also awarded it lackluster scores in their Red Baron pizza reviews. With a "non-distinct pizza smell" and a flavor summed up as "mediocre," this pizza impressed testers only with its appearance, which was called "saucy and golden." The blog Food In Real Life, which compares the prepared appearance of food products to the images on the packaging, places Red Baron above DiGiorno but below Freschetta in the frozen-pizza hierarchy. The site's review mentions difficulty cooking the cheese to the ideal brownness.

Our testers gave Red Baron Classic Crust 4 Cheese Pizza ($5.99 for 21.06 ounces, or 28 cents an ounce) props for the taste of the cheese, a mix of mozzarella, cheddar, provolone, and Parmesan. They also complimented the "nice tomato flavor" but found the crust bland. One panelist mentioned that "oregano stands out." In the end most panelists said they would not eat the pizza again.

Red Baron pizza reviews online skew more in this pie's favor. Consumers posting on Viewpoints cite the medium thickness and crunch of the crust and the taste of the cheese as pluses. However, several reviews, including one at Walmart, suggest this cheese pizza needs extra toppings to kick the flavor up a notch.
