I feel like answering the question of “what pizza you want tonight?” shouldn’t be that hard. I’m 36 years old, I should know by now what pizza I prefer. I went through a real Canadian bacon and pineapple phase but that was a pizza only I enjoyed and I rarely ever have pizza by myself. When I do, I’m usually at Costo getting a slice of pepperoni. Which then led me to go through a phase of only getting pepperoni for a while.
When we were shopping the other day, I came across Red Baron’s Supreme Pizza
Pepperoni, Sausage, Green and Red Peppers, and Onions
This is by far my favorite frozen pizza and I have started recreating it when we get Papa Johns or Dominos. I prefer Papa Johns if we’re going with one of the big chain places but where I work, we have Bridge Pizza across the street and they are pretty fancy with their pizza slices.
This is what they were offering today:
BY THE SLICE
- Cheese- $3.00
- Pepperoni- $3.25
- Bacon, Pineapple, and Jalapeno on BBQ – $3.50
- Broccoli, Artichoke, and Gorgonzola on White – $3.50
There was a while there, I was pretty dedicated to checking the website around 10:30am to figure out if I was getting pizza that day. They are huge fans of Gorgonzola and I don’t care for that cheese so I’m usually pretty good about sticking with the Pepperoni. Bridge did introduce me to pepperoncini and I love those now. I got a jar of them for home and I went through it pretty quickly. Lately they have being doing BBQ instead of red as the alternative, sometimes they have three slices of the day with red, white, or BBQ. They are very fancy.
We also have Bowman’s Pizza but it is awkward to get to them so we rarely go but they are huge supporters in the Catholic community so we like that about them.

Most places don’t offer red peppers so I usually end up ordering pepperoni, sausage (spicy, if they have it), green peppers, and onions. My main problem, when I’m trying to get a deal or use a coupon, is that you are limited to only three items. I usually default to onion as the third over green peppers as the peppers feel like a bonus item to me.
If only limited to two toppings, I’ll go pepperoni and onions, or sausage and green peppers, but if you could combine all four, that is a delight. I like the combo of meat and vegetable. In my twenties, I was all about meat lovers, which was always my go too and I guess is what left me in this tailspin of indecisiveness. My mother-in-law was awesome about ordering the nephews and me a meat lovers deal but either I got burnt out on it or it because too much of me and I started really wanting vegetables to be added for balance.

Remember how great Pizza Hut was back in the day, like during the Book-It Program? We lived in East Helena for at time and Pizza Hut was our closest pizza place. There was this one bad month where their onions were straight horrible, and we kept thinking it would be different but they were plain bad. Maybe it was two months but we haven’t gone back. The Subway down the street from it was also going through a bad onion phase but at least you know what to look for in a tray of bad onions, you really don’t have that opportunity when ordering pizza.
I also really like Papa Johns garlic dipping sauce, we’re usually good for ordering two or three extra cups of it.
I’ve tried Domino’s Garlic dip and I wouldn’t say it is better than Papa Johns but it is pretty good.
