REVIEW: Hot Pockets Supreme Pizza Deep Dish Pizzeria

Hot Pockets Supreme Pizza Deep Dish Pizzeria

Have you looked at a Hot Pocket, then looked at the nutritional facts and then thought to yourself, “Hey, there’s not enough calories and saturated fat in it, but I don’t want to eat two of them”?

If so, you’re in luck because the Hot Pockets Supreme Pizza Deep Dish Pizzeria is heavier than a regular Hot Pocket, but lighter than two. In order make this possible, they didn’t just make a regular Hot Pocket bigger, they made it round so it looks like the Hot Pockets version of a pot pie.

However, instead of being filled with turkey, peas, carrots and gravy, it’s filled with all of the goodness you would find on top of a supreme pizza: pepperoni, sausage, green and red peppers, olives, onions, mushrooms and reduced fat cheese. All of that filling makes it a little thicker than a regular Hot Pocket and its weight about one and three-fourths heavier.

On the front of this product’s box, it brags about how it’s a good source of calcium and contains seven essential vitamins and minerals, but as I mentioned at the beginning, it’s also a great source of saturated fat and sodium. So you’ll beat osteoporosis, but lose to hypertension and heart disease.

If you’ve had a pizza Hot Pocket before, and I’m sure almost all of you have whether you want to admit it or not, you’ll have an idea of what the Hot Pockets Supreme Pizza Deep Dish Pizzeria tastes like, because it just basically a Hot Pocket that’s round. The crust tasted the same and the filling had that familiar pizza flavor. I could pick out the flavors of the pepperoni, sausage, peppers and olives, but not so much with the onions and mushrooms.

As for the cheese, there was a lot of it, but it disappointed me because some of it was reduced fat mozzarella and some of it was imitation mozzarella, which means the Hot Pockets Supreme Pizza Deep Dish Pizzeria didn’t reach its potential with saturated fat and sodium.

  1. “So you’ll beat osteoporosis, but lose to hypertension and heart disease.” – Hahah.

    What a lame excuse of a “new” product. They should really try a little bit harder and not insult our intelligence…if we’ve got any. Now how about dousing this in some Tabasco!

  2. @Bear you are so right. Why can’t they come up with anything original? It’s all the same thing just in a different shape or size. But basically the same doughs and fillings.

  3. Even an Italian like me sometimes will crave a hot pocket. Mind you I actually couldn’t stomach any American pizza when I moved to the States, but now let’s just say that living here for 10 years has made me a lot less picky.

  4. I once ate a good Lean Pocket, but I tried to give another one of these Pizza Pocket things to the Greedy kids and they wouldn’t even eat it, so I bet this box Deep Dish version would also suffer freezer burns before being thrown out.

  5. I would probably eat this drunk but that is about it. LOL But that isn’t saying much because I turn into a food vaccum when I am drunk

  6. I almost spit out my water reading the first line, Marvo. Can you imagine explaining that to the computer repair people?

  7. Basic Shape Hot Pockets! Collect them all! There’s the classic rectangle, the circle, the hexagon, and coming soon, the cone!

  8. @Fran, yeah when I was abroad in France, I could be picky, then when I came back I slowly reacclimated myself to the american style of eating. Took me a couple of months before I could bring myself to buy a croissant at Dunkin Donuts.
    The sad thing is that now, if i was drunk, I would look at that saturated fat and calories, laugh, and heat a hot pocket right up.
    I like that they have the balls to call it “Hot Pockets PIZZERIA.” No, Hot Pockets, No

  9. You call hot pockets pizza I only have one question

    ARE YOU FOR REAL – ARE YOU FOR REAL- ARE YOU FOR REAL

    to be great pizza it can only be made in NY and be thin and chewy

    THAT IS ALL

  10. I’ve had some good pizza in New York and I’ve had some really bad pizza in new york, the best I ever had was at a very authentic pizzahouse at a undisclosed location (not in new york) Still I have to say that I haven’t had a hot pocket… not really my thing

  11. I will occasionally drown a Mexican-style Lean Pocket in salsa and have that for a snack. It’s still not healthy in terms of sodium but for quick eats it’s better than many other things…such as this, it would seem.

  12. Well someone loves these hot pockets, lean pockets, pizza, calzones, etc because they keep outputting more and more. I was in the freezer section not too long ago and was amazed by the sheer amount of choices.

  13. I love me some Hot Pockets. And yes, I may die from heart disease and hypertension, but darn it all – my bones will be strong from all the cheese I consume in Hot Pockets.

  14. @Bear Silber: A lot of people seem to like Tabasco. I think Hot Pockets should team up with Tabasco to make a new Hot Pocket. I think that would sell. Although, I think the Tabasco lovers will probably say there’s not enough Tabasco.

    @Tanya: But college kids and cheap people LOOOOVE Hot Pockets.

    @wouldibuyitagain: Oh, but when you’re drunk, walking through the freezer aisle, it will call for you.

    @Fran: Italian, eh? You must hate Macaroni Grill. I just have this feeling that Italians hate Macaroni Grill.

    @Yum Yucky: Wow. Your kids are good. When I was a kid, I would be all over a Hot Pocket, which would explain why I was a chubby kid.

    @amanda: I wish Hot Pocket had an anagram that dealt with alcohol.

    @Steve D: I would make up an awesome story, like you entered a wet keyboard contest at a club. Just like wet t-shirt contests makes d-bags excited, a wet keyboard contest would make geeks hot. I’m sure the water would make the home keys hard.

    @Long: Drumstick Hot Pockets!!!

  15. @Adrienne: New Yorkers should be pissed at the use of pizzeria. They’ll would probably be like, “I got yo pizzeria right here!”

    @Neil the hammer: Chicagoans might disagree.

    @Woodenhand: Oh, you’re kind of missing out. It’s something all Americans should experience at least once in their life.

    @Bear Silber: A little bias opinion there? 🙂

    @skibs: Too late. I’ve purchased two in the past.

    @Chuck: You know what? That actually sounds good. I don’t have salsa, but I do have lots of Taco Bell sauce packets.

    @amanda: They have paninis now. I have one in my freezer.

    @Clevegal42: But, just to remind you, some of it is fake cheese. Also, just like those Total Cereal commercials, it would take you ten Hot Pockets to get the same amount of calcium in a bowl of Total Cereal.

  16. @Heidi: Don’t listen to your tummy!

    @JamieSusan: You’re right they do make good weapons, but only if you squirt the hot contents of the Hot Pocket into the eyes of an enemy.

    @Britney: Try a Target. I also saw them there.
