File this under "Training Fuel."
One might say I'm a sort of frozen pizza aficionado. And this is no surprise to most of my long-time readers. It's not uncommon for me to have pizza before a race.
We've all heard "It's not delivery. It's DiGiorno!" And you know what? The first time I had one of their pizzas, I was pretty impressed. But now that it's been a few years, I'm kinda over it. I expect ALL frozen pizzas to taste like that now.
A few months ago, Pharmie came home with some HUGE frozen pizzas from Davannis - a local pizza chain. They were expensive (around $10 each), but the ever-thrifty Pharmie had a 2-for-1 coupon, so she brought home a "Meaty" and a "Sausage" pizza:
The Sausage Pizza from Davannis
The pizza looked "weird" in the box. I found this note on it explaining why the sauce was on the top:
I normally eat most (if not all) of a frozen pizza in one sitting. I could only eat half of this pizza, and it was so good. So even if it was a $10 pizza, that'd be 2 full meals for me at $5 each - not bad.
BOTTOM LINE: Not greasy. Not soggy. DELICIOUS bready crust. Not "fake" tasting. Super hearty. More filling than DiGiorno, better tasting, and not as bad for you.
