The pros: Trader Joe's Pizza Crust are huge pizza crusts that yield 4-6 generous slices each. When brushed with oil and placed in the oven, the crust was crisp. If you are looking for thin crust, this isn't it, it's just shy of being Sicilian style thick. Nice flavor of the bread, but the topping is meant to be the highlight.
The cons: None that I can think of.
The verdict: For $2.99 for two crusts, these aren't tiny crusts. These are actually meant to feed a family. For about $1.50 each they're a great value and ready in about 8 minutes in the oven. This is a blank slate in terms of what you can do with it. Like most pizza, the possibilities are seemingly endless. I've repurchased this as it makes a lot of pizza and is so much cheaper than getting pizza out. Just be advised this isn't thin crust. It's just shy of Sicilian in thickness so just be aware. There were no further air bubbles in the crust than what are already baked in. I started off with the standard red sauce and mozzarella cheese to try this out. After my first try, I can get more creative here.

Would I buy this again? Yup. I already have another one of Trader Joe's Pizza Crust sitting in my freezer waiting to be used. It's got a shelf life of about a week and will freeze well. Even in a deep chest freezer I was able to defrost these in the amount of time it took for my oven to hit 425F and get all the other items prepped. It makes for a very quick dinner. Worth a try.
