Not My Favorite Pizza - Ellio's Cheese Pizza

Dec 23, 2010
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:easy to make, quick to make

Cons:not my favorite pizza, serving size is small, need a 12 pack for my family

The Bottom Line:

Ellio's Cheese Pizza is not my favorite my family likes it and it is a cheap meal, just don’t expect too much.


For some reason my husband loves Ellio's Cheese Pizza. The rest of the family prefers homemade pizza but my husband likes that I keep a box of Ellio's Cheese Pizza in the freezer for when he is hungry for it. My husband use to eat it when he was younger all the time. Personally I am not a huge fan of this pizza. I can eat but it certainly isn’t a favorite of mine.

Ellio's Cheese Pizza comes in a 24 ounce box that can be found in the frozen food aisle in most grocery stores. The pizza is made by McCain Foods.  Each box has 9 slices in it which are rectangular in shape. Each slice is split into thirds. So you actually have three long slices that you would cut in thirds when serving. Personally I think the servings are very small and we each eat one full slice (all three of the thirds). It is made with real cheese and no Trans fat. There are also no preservatives or artificial flavors in it.

The pizza comes in plastic wrapping which is not re-sealable. It would be nice if they would make the bag re-sealable in case you do not eat all the slices at once.

A serving of Ellio's Cheese Pizza is two slices. The nutritional facts are

Calories   170
Calories from Fat   0
Total Fat   4g
Saturated Fat   2g
Trans Fat   0g
Cholesterol   10 mg
Sodium   270 mg
Total Carbs   25g
Sugars   6g
Protein   7g

The ingredients in the crust of Ellio's Cheese Pizza is  Enriched Flour (Bleached Wheat Flour with Malted Barley Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Soybean Oil, Sugar, Yeast, Salt, Wheat Flour, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Dough Conditioners (L-Cysteine Hydrochloride, Protease).  And in the sauce is Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Modified Food Starch, Sugar, Salt, Hydrolyzed Corn and Soy Protein, Spices, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder.  And in the toppings is Low-Moisture Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese (Pasteurized Part Skim Milk, Cheese Culture, Salt, Enzymes).

Ellio's Cheese Pizza is easy to make. I usually make it in our toaster oven. I preheat the oven to 425 and bake for about ten minutes. You can also cook the pizza in a regular oven. It is not recommended that you cook the pizza in the microwave. 

Ellio's also comes in different varieties of pizza. They also make double cheese, pepperoni, supreme, and Italian sausage and pepperoni. Ellio's makes jumbo packs of the cheese and pepperoni variety. The jumbo packs contain 27 slices. They also make a microwavable version that I have not tried.

My husband and my boys like the taste of Ellio's Cheese Pizza but I think it is just OK. I can eat it if I have to but I prefer not to. If I do make this pizza for dinner, I will doctor up my slice to make it tastier. I always add more cheese and some seasoning like garlic and Italian seasonings. My husband likes to add red peppers to his. You can add any toppings you like to the pizza.

I try to keep a box of Ellio's Cheese Pizza in my freezer at all times. I try to purchase it on sale for $2.50. If I have to pay full price, it runs around five dollars at my stores.

Ellio's Cheese Pizza is good to have in the freezer for a quick weeknight meal. If you add a salad, you have a complete meal. Even though this pizza isn’t my favorite, I am all for a quick easy meal.

I have a family of four and since we all eat three of what they call slices, it would be nice if they made a 12 count box. This way I would not have to open two boxes and have two slices left over when I am making this for dinner.

Even though Ellio's Cheese Pizza is not my favorite I still purchase it because my family likes it. I would recommend it to others that are looking for a cheap meal, just don’t expect too much.
