Why This One: Mmmmm Pizza. The box makes it look cheesy and delicious.

The details after the jump.


Looks: Wow. This is the saddest little excuse for pizza we have ever seen. First thoughts upon pulling it out of the microwave... It's so tiny. Where is the delicious, melt-y cheese? Is that suppose to be a tomato? Do we really have to eat this? Oh no this is all we brought for lunch.

Taste: You know that saying, sex is like pizza, even when it's bad, it's still pretty good? I'm going to say that this is the exception to the rule. It tastes like....cheap frozen pizza. Sometimes that's a good thing, this time it really wasn't . Seriously, where is the cheese? That picture on the box is a cruel, cruel joke. I can actually count the "tomatoes" there is five. Five. Maybe it was overcooked, but it was like eating a cracker with a teaspoon of thin sauce and a couple shakes of garlic salt. Very disappointing. If you are going to give this a go, make it a snack and not your actual lunch.
   
Score: 2 out of 5. It's still pizza, barely.
