The pizza did have a lot of sauce. I've never had HRI before so I've no idea what's normal. In spots I'd bite through the cheese and pools of red sauce were waiting for me. I liked the sauce though, good flavor. It was heavily sauced, if that's not normal then maybe QC slipped a bit that day.
The pizza did have a flaky quality to it. I don't know if it was aided by my baking temp and time, though. I'll probably just use the box directions to bake next time and see how it compares.
The rim was hard and brittle. I didn't eat much of it but the dog loved it. She liked it more than Milkbones, I think. Is the rim of the frozen pizza in any way similar to what the restaurants serve? I didn't much care for it.
I don't think the taste of the crust dominated the taste of the pizza but it certainly was complimentary. My wife didn't care for the sausage [insert your own joke here] too much fennel for her taste. I thought it was damn tasty.
