Bzz! Kroger's Private Selection Frozen Pizzas!

My family and I had the opportunity to try Kroger's Private Selection Pizza as part of Kroger's latest BzzCampaign. I took my coupon to the store to pick out the Private Selection pizza of my choice, and bought the Fire Roasted Vegetable flavor. Admittedly, I was disappointed in the selection. It was either the Fire Roasted Vegetable pizza, or a Pepperoni and Garlic. Apparently they also offer BBQ Chicken and Margherita (my favorite kind of pizza!) but not at my store. Total bummer!

The Fire Roasted Vegetable Pizza is described as having "thin and flaky crust topped with delicate italian style tomato sauce, roasted zucchini, red and green peppers, garlic, yellow onion, mozzarella and garnished with basil." Personally I don't understand why everything that tries to be "artisan" needs to contain garlic (which I hate), but I was glad to find that this pizza didn't taste overwhelmingly like garlic as many do.

Overall, the pizza was really well received. My mom, who was a bit leery about a roasted vegetable pizza was surprised by how much she liked it. My dad mentioned how little sauce there was on the pizza, but I love pizza to be light on the sauce, so it didn't bother me. My brother and I both liked the extra crunch that the vegetables gave the pizza- I love a pizza with some consistency!

Aside from the lack of selection in the grocery store, my only complaint is in regards to the cook time. The pizza is supposed to cook at 425F for 8-9 minutes. Most frozen pizzas take about 15-20, so this seemed odd to me. As it turns out, I was right to find it odd, since the center of the pizza was still cold 9 minutes later. We ended up having to stick it back in for longer to get it to an edible temp! Otherwise, I really liked the pizza! They'll have to get some more flavor options before I run off to buy another, but for only $5, it won't set back my wallet much!


  1. It looks good! I don't like peppers though, but zuccini sounds yummy :D

  2. I have tagged you in a meme, go check it out !!!

  3. Their pizza rocks....I think you're being too picky and ungrateful! Why are you even complaining when the product was free....some people don't even know where their next meal is coming from....smh

    1. It's a review... To simply say it was awesome for the sake of getting the freebie would be dishonest to other consumers who are relying on reviews to determine whether they want a product. What if you were shopping for an electronic device of some sort and read nothing but great reviews, only to drop the coin, get it, and have it turn out to be a complete piece of garbage? People read reviews for honest opinions. If you don't like it, don't read reviews.
