The Freezer Case: Wegmans Thin Crust Specialty Plain Pizza

Okay, technically not a freezer case review, but close enough. You can find this "Thin Crust Specialty Plain Pizza" in Wegmans' prepared food section in a refrigerator case.

We were late eating dinner (which makes for a crabby nibble) and trying to get a few groceries when I decided to pick up a pie that I could pop in the oven as soon as we got home. We've had their regular (not labeled as specialty, whatever that means) pepperoni pizza in the past and always been pleased. However, it was a Friday, which means no meat, and you know I like a thin crust, so we decided to give this a try.

First of all, the crust is by no means thin. It isn't as thick/doughy as their non-specialties, but I wouldn't categorize it as thin. However, the pie was quite tasty. The cheese was ample and gooey and there was plenty of sauce to satisfy the hubby. We liked how the sauce was spread all the way to the edge, so you didn't have a ton of plain crust for each slice. And despite it looking pretty small, the pizza (accompanied by a side of carrots) was just the right size for the three of us.

Speaking of carrots, when kids make the transition from baby to toddler, why do they all of a sudden decide that veggies are a no-go? Is it an automatic toddler switch that goes on? The nibble always loved every kind of vegetable under the sun! Now we just offer him a small amount of the main dish and promise the rest when he finishes (and by finishing, I do not mean feeding to Bumpkin) his veggies.

Anyway, the Wegmans pie was quite good and we'll definitely get it again. Maybe next time with a side of broccoli.
