The company was nice enough to send me a few samples. I have to admit–I didn’t have high hopes. I’m not the biggest frozen pizza fan. I’d much rather make my own on homemade whole grain pizza dough or Trader Joe’s whole wheat dough . But.. MAN.. it would be nice to have some single serves to pull out for a quick meal whenever the pizza urge strikes–which, for me, is often.
The Pizza Fit ‘n Free is a good size–about that of a standard tortilla pizza . I was actually surprised at the amount of cheese on top. Considering it’s "fat free" I just assumed there’d be minimal cheese.
According to the cooking instructions, you are suppose to cook the pizza frozen in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. So I fired up the oven and got working on my toppings. You didn’t think I’d leave the the pizza as is, did you? :) I decided on peppers and turkey pepperoni.
The company only offers plain pizzas and they actually encourage you to top them yourself. There’s even a whole page devoted to topping ideas straight from their customers.
Even though cooking instructions said 8-10 minutes I cooked mine for about 12. It came out looking like this…
Crispy crust, gooey cheese and complete pizza goodness!
I was seriously surprised how good it was. The cheese was amazing! I’ve never seen fat free cheese melt like real cheese before. I didn’t think it was possible! It’s why I don’t buy fat free cheese, ever. According to the web site…
How is your cheese fat free?
We have developed a way to process the fat out of the cheese, similar to the way they process the fat out of skim milk. The cheese is 100% real dairy mozzarella cheese with no fat substitutes.
Curious… but I must admit tasty.
The crust was ok, but like the cheese, it surprised me. I didn’t expect to get that "crunch" when I bit into it but I did. It made each bite very satisfying.
Nutritionally we’re looking at 248 calories, 0g of fat, 41g of carbs, 3g of fiber and 20g of protein per pie. That’s 4 old WWP and 6 new WWPP. Add a ton of "free" toppings and or a side salad and you got yourself a great pizza centric meal for pretty low points.
You guys know I feel about making your own meals– I do devote a whole site to it –but I’m also a big believer in planning and convenience. There will be times when you don’t feel like cooking dinner. When you are in a rush and have no desire to make a lunch for work the next day. There will even be times you just feel like having some pizza. It happens. :) When it does I’d rather have a few of these in my back pocket then pick up the phone and order in or hit a drive thru.
