Pizza Challenge: Who makes the best bargain brand (a.k.a., cheap) frozen pizza? Day 6 - How good is Freshchetta? - Bachelor on the Cheap

It's Day Six of the challenge and today I'm reviewing Freschetta, a relative newcomer to the frozen pizza game.  I purchased my Freschetta Pepperoni on a Brick Oven Crust Pizza for $5.49 and the pie weighed in at 22.7 ounces, on the high end of bargain brand pizza weight.

So how was it?

Trucking companies in market for drivers

Stallion Transportation Group ran into a problem after adding 15 trucks to its Beebe-based fleet earlier this year.

Butch Rice, the company's chief executive officer, said it took more than four months to recruit enough drivers to fill the seats of those big rigs.

"We never really had a driver issue up until the last couple years," Rice said last week. "But it has really tightened up. ... It's a different animal out there right now."

Pizza Challenge: Who makes the best bargain brand (a.k.a., cheap) frozen pizza? Day 5 - Is it DiGiorno? - Bachelor on the Cheap

DiGiorno Pepperoni Pizza
DiGiorno Original Thin Crust Pepperoni Pizza

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

It's Day Five of the challenge and after reviewing the #2 frozen pizza maker based on sales (Red Baron) yesterday, today I'm reviewing the #1 frozen pizza maker on the sales chart, DiGiorno.     My DiGiorno Original Thin Crust Pepperoni cost me $5.49 and weighed in at 22.1 ounces.  That price is on the higher end of 'bargain' pizzas and the first thing I notice is that DiGiorno uses the same not real pepperoni as the cheaper brands that includes chicken as an ingredient.  It's listed plainly on the outside of the box.  Strike one.

Is Red Baron Pizza any good? - Bachelor on the Cheap

20180615_185654Red Baron Thin & Crispy Crust Pepperoni

It's Day Four and after two consecutive underwhelming pizzas (Tombstone and Totino's), I'm looking forward to something better.....  One can always hope....   Today, I'm reviewing Red Baron, a go-to brand for a lot of folks, second only to DiGiorno in sales.  My Red Baron Pepperoni on a 'Thin & Crispy' Crust cost $3.49 for a pizza weighing in at 15.77 ounces.  That comes in under the typical size/weight range, traditional frozen pizza heft is usually between 16 and 20 ounces.  Must be the thin crust, right?
