Verdict? Not recommended
I’m back in Toontown, making a beeline for Daisy’s Diner. I’m a man on a mission.
I’m here for the Cheese Pizza.
Today’s the rematch. Will plain cheese be better? (Is less actually more?)
I order, pay, am handed a pizza box that looks incredibly familiar, find a table, and pop open the box lid. Inside sits the prize.
Presentation-wise, this is a reload of the Pepperoni Pizza. Personal size, four slices. Lots of crust, a bit of red tomato sauce, a bit of cheese. It looks pretty greasy.
I grab a slice, and get to work.
Initial reaction? Not bad. I started at the pointy end of the slice. There’s a good amount of red sauce and cheese.
Bite #2 is where the problem comes in. Each slice is 3 – 5 bites; there’s cheese and tomato on, maybe, two of them, tops. I take my second bite, find it to be much, much less flavorful than its predecessor, and now seem to be holding a large chunk of doughy crust.
The second slice is the same story: a good initial hit of tomato, cheese, and crust on Bite #1 followed by a slog through the rest of the slice as it turns into dough.
Somewhere, I hear a sad trombone.
This isn’t horrible pizza, but it’s not certainly not good (let alone great). It’s four decent bites of flavor, surrounded by a moat of boring pizza crust. I’d love to say that kids would like it, but I just can’t see that being true.
