Hello! Johnny and I consider ourselves to be oven pizza connoisseurs. It is my go to when I don’t feel like cooking and it is Johnny’s favorite thing to make so that he feels like he’s cooking lol! I recently saw a commercial for a Digiorno pizza that had the entire crust (not just the edges) stuffed with cheese and it really blew my mind. I told Johnny about it and he decided to investigate when he ran some errands. Unfortunately, the pizza was only available in pepperoni and that wouldn’t do for my vegetarian self. So, Johnny purchased the Digiorno for him and this for me:
I don’t know if you guys are familiar with the show Community but there was a character named Leonard who was a senior citizen and attending the community college. He had a vlog in which he reviewed different oven pizzas and would declare it to be “a buy” if he liked it. Lol, while lifewithlilred is not turning into a pizza blog any time soon, I just had to get my Leonard on one time for the one time because the Red Baron pizza Johnny got for me sucked on ice!
When my sweet husband returned from his shopping, he was so proud of himself for the substitution of the Red Baron Fully Loaded Five Cheese Pizza. And, I have to admit, it looked awesome and I couldn’t wait to pop it into the oven. After it was cooked, it was still looking good with all of that glorious cheese. Then, I had to cut it and it ended up being a very difficult feat. I kid you not, this pizza was literally all crust. *Face palm*
Once I freed some slices and plated it up, I lost most of my original zest for testing this pizza out. And, I don’t blame myself one bit because it was the worst. The crust was so thick that it tasted like eating a brick with a thin layer of sauce and cheese on top. I had to douse it in Ranch dressing to soften it up – it was that bad. The Red Baron truly missed the mark with this one and I couldn’t even bring myself to eat the leftovers, which is something I pride myself on. If only the crust were stuffed with cheese like Johnny’s pizza because he was living his best life with his!
lifewithlilred is all about giving honest reviews on products and I guess that goes for pizza too! Haha, I just felt obligated to warn all of my oven pizza fans out there about this epic failure before buying it. You’ll thank me later when you are enjoying an oven pie with a normal sized crust!
What is your favorite brand of oven pizza? What do you make (Or order!) when you don’t feel like cooking? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
It certainly looks a bit rough round the edges!! I do love the RB french bread pizzas. They have to be baked to crisp them up, so it’s about the same as an oven pizza. After it’s done I add some banana peppers, tofu-turkey and a bit of mayo to make a hot sub! Cut it in half and make it into a really tasty sandwich.
Omg I love a french bread pizza so much I miss the Stouffer’s white french bread pizza more than words can say! I’ve never thought to make a sandwich with them!

The RBs aren’t bad. The Stouffer’s were thicker, but honestly I like a thinner bread when it comes to making a “hot sub”. We’ve been rolling mozzarella and veggie pepperoni or sausage into croissant rolls and those are yummy too.
Where do you get veggie pepperoni?!?!?!?!

Not sure how I missed this…. Field Roast makes a decent veggie pepperoni and I’ve been picking them up at Whole Foods on Market. Last week I discovered that our local market has them (they ar fickle and it’s likely not a lasting trend at our market). I also love the Beyond Italian sausage; I cook those and then put 1/2, sliced, on a pizza.
Ooooh I will have to keep my eyes out the next time I go shopping that sounds so good!!!!
