Donato's Seriously Meaty

I have written over the last year - most noticeably about Trader Joe's pizzas - how disappointing it is when the toppings of a frozen pizza stop well short of reaching the crust. I am pretty used to it at this point, though TJ's has taken it to extreme heights - er, depths - lately.

Which is why I was pleased to see a frozen pizza for sale recently that advertises right on the box "edge to edge toppings." I immediately purchased it. 

And I was pleased upon unboxing the pizza: There are lots of toppings and many of them extend to the edge. 

This is one of those things where your mileage may vary. 

For me, there were too many toppings. The combination of Provolone cheese, pepperoni, ham, and bacon made this the saltiest food I have eaten in years. I could not finish half of it, and even with that amount, I drank perhaps a half-gallon of water over the next couple of hours.

Still, it wasn't bad. The crust did nothing to distinguish itself but the sauce, and particularly the sausage, were very tasty. 

And in a world where so many frozen pizzas skimp on the toppings, I can't hold it against Donato's for including too many.  

When I was a kid, it's possible I would have loved this pizza. But I haven't been a kid for a long time, and I most likely won't get one of these again.

But I'm not going to tell you to avoid it. If you like salty foods more than I - or if you're drunk when you eat this and need it to soak up the alcohol - you might enjoy this pizza very much.
