Phew. Thank goodness itâ€™s over.
We decided to lift the self-imposed ban on food reviews here at the Impulsive Buy, because we would like to get rid of all these empty boxes and bottles of food products that we couldnâ€™t review because of the stupid ban.
So that means food reviews up the wazoo for the next few weeks.
Also, sorry about yesterdayâ€™s â€œreview.â€ We know it really wasnâ€™t a â€œreview.â€ We just wanted to be political like many other blogs, so we pretended to be interested in politics, like Ben Affleck does.
We know. We know. If all the other blogs jumped into a volcano, would we jump into the volcano too?
No we wouldnâ€™t.
So weâ€™re back to real reviews and the subject of todayâ€™s review was requested by Impulsive Buy
groupie worshipper follower, Alisa.
She asked if we, in her own words, â€œreview geniusesâ€ could review the new DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza. After consulting with each other to determine if she did an adequate amount of sucking up, we decided to go though with the review and picked up the Three Meat Pizza version.
Just to let you know, microwave foods arenâ€™t our best friends. From the exploding TV dinners to burnt microwave popcorn, we havenâ€™t been successful whenever using the microwave. Oh, and letâ€™s not forget the microwave pork grinds. Man, that smell lingered for days.
Although, we have to admit weâ€™ve had some recent successes, like this one, but 99 percent of the time we screw up somehow.
Included with the DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza was aâ€¦Umâ€¦Crisping contraption, which we think is a black paint job and a few spikes away from being a S&M collar, but that might only be us.
After putting the pizza in the crisping contraption, we put all of that into the microwave and baked it for the recommended six minutes on HIGH. We wanted to watch it to see if the crust would rise, but we remembered what our moms said growing up, â€œIf you stare into the microwave, your palms will grow hair.â€
Or was that something else.
Anyway, we let the pizza sit for the few minutes after it was done baking. After tasting it, we have to say that this is the best microwave pizza we ever had that we didnâ€™t screw up. It was like we baked it in a conventional oven and didnâ€™t screw up.
The only major problem we had with it was the price. Spending $4.29 for a seven-inch pizza (donâ€™t ask how we measured it) seemed a bit expensive. If they were on sale or cheaper, we would definitely buy them more often.
We wonder if Alisa will reimburse us.
Item: DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza: Three Meat Pizza
Purchase Price: $4.29
Rating: 4 out of 5
Pros: Crisping contraption worked well. Oven baked taste. No, really, it had an oven baked taste. We didnâ€™t cause it to burn, melt, or explode.
Cons: Outer crust was kind of hard. Expensive.
