Pizza is without a doubt, one of my favorite foods. For many years, I have been a big fan of individually – sized, frozen Celeste pizzas, which are known as “pizza for one”. A wide variety of Celeste pizza for one pies are normally available at supermarkets everywhere and at one time or another, I have tried eating most of the Celeste varieties. Last week, my Father brought over a Celeste pizza for one variety that I had never tried before and I cooked and ate it last night. The type of Celeste pizza for one that I am referring to is their Original 4 Cheese pizza.
I must say, I was actually surprised by how tasty this Celeste pizza for one variety was. At first, I was afraid that the pizza would taste overly – cheesy, but that was not the case. This frozen pizza offers a robust flavor and appealing texture that is quite satisfying. The Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one is also reasonably – priced and quick and easy to prepare. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s consumer product review of the Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one.
The net weight of the Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one is 5.74 ounces (162g). This individually – sized pizza mostly satisfied my appetite when I ate it, but truth be told, if it was just a little bit bigger, the size would be ideal for a hungry eater. As it is, the size of this frozen pizza is perfectly adequate for most people.
The retail price normally charged for one Celeste Original 4 Cheese frozen pizza at most Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets is generally between $.99c and $1.39. Also, quite often, these frozen pizzas are on sale at many major supermarkets for even lower prices.
The texture of the Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one is appealing. When cooked according to package directions, the crust on this pizza pie is slightly firm, yet chewably soft. For those who desire a crispier crust, this frozen can be cooked directly on the center rack of a conventional, which produces a crispy crust. The agreeable tomato sauce and four types of cheese on this frozen pie marry well with the crust, creating a pizza with a very nice texture, or mouth feel.

Inside the box, the pizza is contained in a plastic wrapper, to ensure freshness and to minimize the spillage of topping ingredients.

Taste / Flavor
The Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one offers a rich and bold flavor that is cheesy, yet not overly – so. As I ate the pizza, I noticed that it filled me up rather quickly and I only ate 3/4 of the pie. The remaining piece of pizza I refrigerated and ate the next day. It tasted even better as cold leftovers. The distinct flavors of the four cheese varieties are evident in small doses and the crust and sauce are quite tasty.
The Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one can be cooked in either a conventional or microwave oven. When preparing this frozen pizza in a conventional oven, it may be cooked on a baking sheet, or, for a crispier crust, directly on the center oven rack.

When preparing this frozen pizza in a microwave oven, the normal cooking time is approximately 3 – 4 minutes. While both cooking methods produce a very good pie, I think that cooking the Celeste Original 4 Cheese pizza for one in a conventional oven on a baking sheet provides better results.
