- INGREDIENTS: Wheat flour, water, stracciatella burrata 21% (milk, cream, salt, rennet, milk enzymes, acidity regulator: lactic acid), tomatoes 9%, 8.5% mozzarella cheese (milk, salt, rennet, lactic ferments) , sunflower oil, olive oil, vegetable fiber (citrus, bamboo, psyllium) whey, salt, dextrose, malted wheat flour, baking powder, dried basil.
- BAKING INSTRUCTIONS: Heat oven (traditional 200°C, ventilated 180°C). Remove all the transparent wrapping and defrost the pizza for about 10 minutes at room temperature. Place it on the middle rack and bake it for 10 minutes. Not all of the ovens bake in the same way, these instructions are to be considered a guide: the pizza will still be cooked when all the cheese melts.

- 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:
1) Baking and Appearance: 7/10
This is my second frozen pizza ever so it’s a bit hard to make comparisons but I got to admit that this pizza doesn’t look as good as it actually tastes. I mean.. it’s not super ugly but it’s not attractive either.
The baking instructions instead are clear and your pizza will be easily ready in about 20 minutes (considering preheating time): crunchy and perfectly cooked.
I left it in the oven a couple of minutes more than required and it started to burn it on the borders so maybe it’s better follow the instructions verbatim!
2) Dough: 9/10
They write on the box that the dough, “thin and tasty, is kneaded with water from Dolomiti Mountains and it rests for a long leavening process of 6 hours”.
I agree: it’s very very thin and the borders are super crunchy.
It’s so crunchy that it kinda reminds me of a cracker ahaha
It’s actually a weird dough for a pizza but I really enjoyed it because in the end it’s super light, easy to digest and in my opinion intensifies the flavor of the toppings.
3) Toppings: 8/10
Reading the ingredients on the box I think that they didn’t put anything bad in here: they even add vegetable fiber that sounds healthy but I don’t really know the reason.
They could probably avoid sunflower oil and use only olive oil but I don’t think it’s a very bad thing.
As for the quantity of toppings I’d say that the cheese is enough but they should definitely add more basils and tomatoes.
However the quality of the ingredients seems pretty good: burrata was super creamy and tasted delicious.
3) Value: 8/10
When I bought this pizza it was on sale because its original price is 3,29€. I don’t think I would buy it at its original price since you can buy a margherita for almost 3€ in some restaurants in Milan but when it is discounted it’s totally worth it. Especially because the ingredients are special (burrata is actually a valued cheese in italy) and it’s very tasty and light.
5) Side Effects: 10/10
I didn’t experience any side effect. Awesome 🙂
