Jack's Half and Half Pepperoni and Cheese Pizza

Looks: Everything looks pretty close. Oh, except that the pizza on the package has about 5 times the cheese as the real thing. There’s barely enough cheese in real life to cover the sauce, and the package shows it stretching off of each slice! Not in a million years. 2.5 out of 5

P.S. Bonus points for the first commenter to find another glaring inaccuracy in the packaging picture.

Taste: On a pizza scale from 1 to 10, this is ketchup and cheese on a cracker. It’ll do in a pinch, but almost any other pizza outscores it. 2 out of 5

Looks: Pretty close. The only point I’d take away is that the cheese isn’t as thick and doesn’t melt quite as evenly as the box portrays. 4 out of 5

Taste: It’s something of a misnomer to call this “pizza.” Good pizza comprises crust, sauce, and cheese that fuse together to make a single food where all of the flavors meld and complement each other. The food pictured above, which I will call breadsaucecheese, has all of the components of pizza, but the tastes stand out separately in your mouth. Don’t get me wrong – it tastes good, but it’s akin to happening to eat a piece of bread at the same time as some tomato sauce and some melted cheese. 3.5 out of 5
