Kroger French Bread Pizza (Three Meat) & a Hot Sauce Tasting

Merry Christmas, folks. I can't imagine many people will be checking out this blog on Christmas Day, so this isn't going to be the best frozen pizza I'll ever write about. 

You may remember a few weeks ago, I was shocked at how good a Stouffer's french bread pizza tasted after going more than 20 years without trying one. I decided to try another french bread pizza soon, if the opportunity presented itself.

So when I saw Kroger offered several flavors of french bread pizza, all on sale for $1 each, I jumped at the chance. 

It was not particularly attractive, either cooked or uncooked. 

And it wasn't particularly flavorful, either. I was not surprised. Nor was I disappointed. Store-brand items like this, especially with a $1 price tag, or not designed to be gourmet. The chief selling point is not the item, but rather the price. 

But it wasn't bad. It lacked the umami presence of Stouffer's, but it did the job. 

I don't drink like I used to, but if I did, I would make it a point to always keep these in the freezer for those evenings when I have a lot of beer and need something in my stomach.  

I decided to liven up the pizza by adding some of my favorite hot sauces. Behold:  

Tabasco Cayenne Garlic. 

Hank Sauce "Cilantktro." Stupid name; delicious sauce. 

And, what is probably my favorite hot sauce - also with a stupid name - Texas Champagne.
