Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza Formaggio is a single serving pizza that can be found in the freezer section. Read on to find out if you should buy a box!
Growing up, I practically lived off of Stouffer’s French Bread Pizzas. If you’ve ever had those, you know they take forever to cool off. Being the impatient person that I am, I never waited long enough and would always bite in to cheese that was the approximate temperature of lava. I’m surprised that I still have feeling in my mouth.
The Bambino Pizzas remind me a bit of those old Stouffer’s favorites. These have a very thick, bready crust. If you’re looking for a thinner, New York style pizza, you won’t be happy with these.
If you’ve read my Top 10 Trader Joe’s Products, you know I always keep a box of these on hand.
Each box contains 4 pizzas. They are wrapped in cellophane, with 2 in each wrapper. They are small enough to fit 2 in an average toaster oven. These are not large pizzas, but I find it is more than enough food if it is paired with a salad or some other vegetable.
The sauce is well-seasoned and there is just the right amount of it.
There is also a good amount of cheese. I feel like a lot of frozen pizzas are spotty with the cheese, but the Bambino Pizzas have good coverage. Once they’re cooked and the cheese melts, the sauce is fully covered.
Cooking Instructions for Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza Formaggio
The cooking instructions say to cook the pizzas in an oven preheated to 425° for 10 minutes. I do not feel like that is enough time. After 10 minutes, the cheese is not fully melted. I usually give it another 5 minutes or so to fully melt the cheese.
I also don’t cook these on a tray. I place them directly on the toaster oven rack in order to get the crust good and crispy. The crust will not brown, so don’t over cook these trying to get color on the crust.
Nutritional Information for Trader Joe’s Bambino Pizza Formaggio
As you can see, this isn’t exactly health food, but if you’re trying to eat healthy, you probably shouldn’t be eating pizza anyway. The ingredients are fairly clean. Like all Trader Joe’s products, this contains no artificial dyes, flavorings, or preservatives. Theses pizzas do contain guar and arabic gums, so if you’re sensitive to either of those, you’ll want to steer clear.
These little pizzas are great. They are flavorful and easy enough to make that older kids can make one for a quick lunch.
