Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza: A Review

The Box. Why the fork? Who does that?

Pre-baking

Baked at 425 degrees for 12 minutes
As part of the BzzAgent Ristorante Pizza campaign, I received:
A letter from BzzAgent Jono about the product
An Official BzzGuide
Two Coupons for a free Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza (the retailer is reimbursed)
Five Magnets/notepads (to give away)
Eight $1.50 Coupons (to give away)
The suggested retail price for this pizza is $4.99 and it is not to exceed $5.99. The coupons that I have been giving away to neighbors and family friends means they can buy the pizza for approximately $3.50.  Each pizza serves three people, so at this price point, the pizza is way cheaper than that which you would buy at a pizza place. I am not experienced in frozen pizza so any comparisons I make will be to pizza that you would buy in New York pizzerias.
Things I liked:
The diced tomatoes actually looked like diced tomatoes (i.e. FRESH!)
There was not an overabundance of any one ingredient.
Simple. Simple. Simple.
No grease pools (you heard me, NY pizza!)
The slices were stiff enough to hold without the worry of the topping falling off.
Things I disliked:
I miss the traditional roll crust to hold onto.
The fork on the cover graphic is unnecessary.
The two supermarkets near me only carried the mozzarella, or the mozzarella and spinach.
The directions called to put the pizza directly on the oven grate, which made removal somewhat difficult and any clean-up more of a hassle. 
Again, I haven’t had frozen pizza in a decade but from the looks of the other pizzas in the frozen section, this one seemed healthier and more appetizing.
