The official frozen pizza power rankings – Los Angeles Times

Restaurant News

I’ll say this: Not a lot of American food products are named after Second Reich-era German war heroes.

The original Red Baron, of course, is Manfred von Richthofen, Snoopy’s mortal enemy and a World War I flying ace credited with singlehandedly wreaking havoc on Britain’s Royal Air Force, notching 80 aerial victories. Germany ultimately lost the war, of course, and Richthofen didn’t live to see the end of it. Again, making this guy the face of your business is certainly an outside-the-box marketing choice. (A 2015 article about the Red Baron in the Wall Street Journal, which quoted a company spokesman, stated, “Red Baron Pizza stresses Von Richthofen’s attention to detail as an aviator personifying ‘strength and romance.’”)

As for the pizza, it’s nothing to write home about, but you could do worse. The cheese and crust are heavy on the dried herbs. The sauce is thin and has a somewhat slick mouthfeel. My feelings about the pizza are not quite “Curse you, Red Baron!” but I’m not inclined to heap praise on the guy either.
