Your chosen cooking style for this pizza: came out a bit burned, their cooking instructions are insane, i was well below in temperature and time and it was on the cusp of becoming inedible if i had left it in any longer, its too thin to withstand 425. the burned parts on top were good but underneath (difficult to have gotten a pic) were not so tasty.

Dough:

yeast flavor? zero
texture? super crispy, but not necessarily in a good way
density? very

Sauce:

herbal flavors? zero
spice/sweetness? spicy! most spicy pizza i think ive ever had, and i dont quite understand why. while it does compliment the margeria style toppings i dont think they intended it to be, maybe i imagined it?!?! they claim its an 'alfredo garlic sauce', granted i was a bit drunk but i didnt even notice this wasnt even marinara, which i cant believe.

cheese:

cohesiveness: maximum, one big piece
viscosity: maximum, zero flow.
type: mozzerella and asiago....i didnt know it had asiago until i just checked the box, and i detected none, tho in their defense subtle cheese blends like that are often lost on me.
amount: very very little, i guess you couldnt pile much on a foundation this weak tho

toppings (if any/describe each seperately): roma tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes.
level of moisture in toppings: very nice, tomatoes were plenty moist which at minimum perputrated....
level of freshness: ...that they were very fresh.


ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:
palermo's by far has the super thin crust on lock, they taught me that it coudl even be good in the first place. this is a bernatellos product, which i didnt even notice until today, days later, as i write the review........so you know its a subpar product. this is their 'high class' pizza to try and compliment the other junk in their line (like roma). as i mentioned above, the spiciness was a surprise, but besides that it was boring at best. this was also small in diameter, and thats unnacceptable unless you make up for it in girth (no entendre intended). i never detected the 'garlic alfredo sauce' or the sun dried tomatoes at all. i kind of burned this becuase it cooked so fast and it was so thin and small diameter i didnt even cut it, i just ate it as one big piece like a wild animal, havent done that in a while! this was a very unfilling pizza. also 'unfufulling'! dont reach for this! get a palermos!
