The pros: Trader Joe's Spizzico di Pizza is a quick and easy appetizer or snack especially if members of your household are already familiar with pizza bites. These are similar except they are not bagels, they are somewhere between pita bread and pizza dough.
The cons: It's a freezer pizza so don't expect this to blow you away in terms of flavor.
The verdict: For $2.99, this is a good appetizer, but not as good as say Trader Joe’s Mac and Cheese Bites, Trader Joe’s Arancini Bites or Trader Joe’s Hot & Spicy Chicken Wings Sections, but it is finger food that can be ready quickly with little mess or the need for serving utensils. Any time I've had a get together mini pizzas always seem to be the first item to go. Most likely because they are the most familiar items to any guest, but they are a relatively safe choice for anyone who is snacking.

Would I buy this again? This is a most likely yes for me. I thought they were just ok, but then again, I've never really met too many freezer pizzas that I was wowed by either. If you adore Pizza Bites then this is a lighter recipe in terms of how dense the bread is here. It's the same sloppy presentation and very similar in taste in terms of the cheese and sauce. It's finger food so whether you are having company, the holidays, or a game on this is a no brainer in terms of things to serve. Even when pizza is bad, it's still kinda good. This pizza wasn't bad. It was kinda good. And ready in just over 10 minutes in the toaster oven.
