After my experience with the Mabo Italiano I was a little hesitant trying another Screamin’ Sicilian pizza. Co. I’m glad that I decided to give this variety a try.
I followed the instructions and placed the frozen pizza into my preheated oven and patiently waited for it to be ready for my taste buds.
The packaging has the same eye catching design. A text bubble calls out that this pizza has “Ridiculous amounts of cheese!”. This all cheese pizza is covered with whole milk fresh (frozen) mozzarella, shredded mozzarella, Parmesan, Romano, and white cheddar cheese. The secret recipe tomato sauce is back along with the “Stone-fired” medium crust. Like the the previous selection, I had to rearrange the toppings to more evenly cover the surface.
Bessie’s Revenge bakes for between 16-18 minutes at 425 degrees. I checked mine after 16 minutes and it looked very pale so I let it bake 2 minutes longer. It was still looking a little too blonde for my taste so I left it in for another 4 minutes and that had the cheese looking a nice golden brown color. Again, the smell was mild for something touted as “Screamin’ Sicilian” and I was thinking this might be another disappointment.
I started tasting with a salad and then cut into the pizza.
The crust was much crisper than my previous selection and had considerably more cheese. Allowing the pizza to rest while I ate the salad kept the cheese from being too soft. There was no stretch as I pulled two pieces from the pie.
The pizza was much better. The cheese was thick and complemented the tomato sauce nicely. I could not discern any seasoning besides the tomato sauce and five cheeses. The crust was crisp and had an ok taste to it.
I can recommend Bessie’s Revenge to anyone who likes a cheese pizza. You might want to add some crushed red pepper flakes or a pizza seasoning to it to liven it up a bit.
