Pizza is definitely one of my favorite foods, if not my favorite. We eat it roughly once a week and I never get sick or tired of it! I saw this new Motor City Pizza Co. frozen pizza at my Costco during my last trip and wanted to pick it up to review and have as a lazy dinner one night.

Other pizza products from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Pepperoni Pizza, Sabatasso’s Pizza Singles, Pizza Delight Garlic Cheese Fingers, Sabatasso’s Gluten-Free Four Cheese Pizza, Kirkland Signature Frozen Cheese Pizza, Molinaro’s Napolitano Pizza Kit and the Molinaro’s Gluten-Free Roasted Vegetable Cauliflower Crust Pizza.

Location in Store

You can find this in the freezer aisle at Costco, near all the other frozen pizzas. The item number is 1652977.

Looks good, right?

Taste

The pepperoni (which is on the pizza in both sliced and diced forms) is a bit spicy! It definitely adds some heat. There’s a fairly generous amount of meat on the pizzas, though it is a bit unevenly distributed.

The crust is very good, nice and crispy.

The crust is great for a frozen pizza. The edges get really crispy. Away from the edges, it’s soft, relatively light and somewhat chewy.

The pepperoni could be more evenly placed.

The cheese and sauce on the pizza are both good. The amount of cheese is fine, but I could have done with a bit more sauce. I did find the pizza a bit greasy. There were little pools of oil/grease in a few places after baking it.

A little greasy, but what pizza isn’t?

Cost

The box comes with two pizzas and costs $17.99 Canadian, which definitely isn’t cheap. However, it’s deep-dish pizza so I find it more filling than just regular pizza and it’s tasty as well as seems to be pretty good quality.

The box comes with two frozen pizzas, each pizza is in its own cooking tray.

Convenience

The pizza comes already in a cooking tray which is really nice. We baked our pizza in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 21 minutes. The pizza turned out great after baking it in the oven. Obviously, the pizza needs to be kept frozen and for some reason, I couldn’t find a best-before date on the box.

I definitely think kids would enjoy this pizza and I also wouldn’t hesitate to serve it to guests as a fun dinner or snack. Sean and I both enjoyed it on a Saturday night.

Nutrition

Calories

I knew this wasn’t going to be healthy and would have lots of calories. One-quarter of a pizza or around two big slices is 570 calories, 29 grams of fat, 51 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fiber, five grams of sugar, 17 grams of protein and 1250 milligrams of sodium. Wow, that’s a lot of sodium!

Ingredients

The thing I don’t like about non-homemade pizza is all the unnecessary ingredients, like palm oil, corn oil, soybean oil. If you want to save yourself some unhealthy ingredients I think making your own pizza from scratch is your best bet. This pizza is not gluten-free or dairy-free, it contains milk, wheat and mustard.

  1. We tried the Cheese Breadsticks by Motor City and thought they were delicious!!! We served with veggie soup and was extremely impressed!

  2. I tried this pizza and was not all that impressed. Taste was “fine” but not great. It didn’t fit my paradigm of deep dish. Still better than most pizzas from Trader Joe’s. It’s a good go to if you don’t have the time to visit your favorite pizzeria.
