CELESTE, or rather “Mama Celeste” is one of those name brands that have been around forever – but never near me. Not that I can ever remember that is.
I would hear it mentioned on TV countless times when I lived more North but never actually tried it. So when I saw these personal pizzas at Walmart I was sold. I finally get around to try it for myself.
Originally these were called “Mama Celeste” but evidently that is too complicated so they are simply “Celeste” now. Which sounds like a perfume, not a pizza. But who am I?
Okay so they had pepperoni and cheese pies available and I scooped them both up. Today we just working on the original cheese.
Oh mama….this is …uh. Meh. The crust is dry and crunchy. That I actually like. The sauce tastes like some tomato ketchup. Just bland. It’s actually the cheese that I remember most. Not because it was great but because it was gummy.
There were a couple of times where I had stop mid-bite and wipe my teeth with a napkin because it felt like the cheese was stuck to my teeth like glue. Weird.
I am hoping that these somehow got a bit defrosted in transit and then re-chilled once at the store or something. That this is an anomaly.
I am optimistic about the upcoming Pepperoni.
