Description

Safeway (and Von’s, Randalls, and Tom Thumb Markets) have a number of quality in house branding concepts, among them is the “Select” line of frozen meals.

I picked up the “Primo Italian Meat Ultra Thin Crust Pizza”, which includes toppings of capicola, crumbled Italian sausage, and Genoa Salami, covered with a blend of Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Romano Cheeses.

The pie weighs in at a mere 14.25 ounces, due to the thin crust, and retails for about $6 at our local stores.

Cooking instructions are center rack at 400 for 9-11 minutes.

The pie looks fairly appealing when taken from the box and shrink wrap, those large slices of meat, tho paper thin, have a lure for me.

After 10 minutes in the pre-heated oven, the pie qualifies as “done”, but I like it a little browner, so after this stage, I put it under the broiler for two minutes.

The crust was indeed ultra thin, and had a nice cracker crunch to the outer edges, while remaining chewy enough on the interior.   The meat did have some flavor, especially the sausage chunks, which, while plentiful, I wished were larger crumbles.  Regular readers know my frozen pizza of choice is California Pizza Kitchen’s Sicilian, but this Safeway product is a worth competitor.  I’ll do it again sometime.

Safeway Frozen Pizza gets 4 out of 8 slices in the frozen category!

    tried the safeway brand goat cheese and spinach thincrust pizza-very poor value scanty toppings-only 14 cubic cm of goat cheese-only 2 cubes per slice and a bare scattering of spinach and mozzarella.crust was very dry due to paucity of toppings
    Price was around $6-but I wouldnt waste my money on this again

    Re: Safeway goat cheese and spinach thin crust pizza.

      Agree with Dwhitman on this.

    This is how my pizza came out of the box.  Over 1/4 of the crust had no topping at all!

    I’ll never buy it again. Got it home and found out the package was already opened. Couldn’t tell till it was out of the box. Crust and cheese in open area dry. Horrible experience. Had to throw it out and eat tuna fish for dinner. A waste of 7.50 I can scant afford. Boo to Safeway! Overpriced and low quality from other store brand items I picked up there.
