I know that Pizzeria Uno is a legendary pizza institution, specifically known for its creation of the Chicago deep dish pizza, but its reincarnation in frozen form is rather un-delicious.

I’m like the Homer Simpson of rating pizzas. I might consider rating a pizza found under a couch an 7 out of 8 rating too if it tasted good…but the Pizzeria Uno Deep Dish Pepperoni was greasy, its cheese was moist (and it was not undercooked; the crispy burnt cheese on top verified that), and the sauce was soupy. As hungry as I was, there was  nothing inside of me pushing me to finish even half of the pizza—which might have been a blessing in disguise because that would have been a 1000 calories right there.

I will refuse to focus on just the negative here, however. This is pizza we’re talking about, a food gift for college students, people who can’t cook, and Book It! participants. The crust was edible, tasty even; I finished nearly all of the crust that contained some cheese residue. The pepperoni populated the pizza in a plentifully perfect manner. And I’m pretty sure I bought the Pizzeria Uno pizzas for under $12 at Jewel last week, so I’m pleased with that.

Using my Homer Simpson pizza rating, which IS certainly biased to overall edibility and not nuanced criticality, I will give this frozen deep dish pizza a 5 out of 8 slices. Next time get a frozen Gino’s East deep dish instead.

    I just tried their thin crust frozen sausage pizza. Terrible – as well as their frozen calzones. I like the deep dish four cheese with pesto best of their frozen offers.

    I have just eaten my first and last frozen Uno Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza. It is without doubt the worst frozen pizza I have ever eaten-I cannot write one complimentary thing about it. It is overwhelmingly heavy doughy crust with the cheese and pepperoni virtually tasteless and it requires prodigious additions of salt and (if you have it) all-flavor powder to get any taste at all. I recommend you buy one for an enemy.

    I have to say I couldn’t disagree more this is the best pizza especially for frozen it is actually better than almost all fresh local pizza that I’ve had. The only reason I even came across this was because my grocery store quit carrying them looks like they had not enough space and I was looking for a way to continue to purchase them!
