Kwik Trip Kitchen Cravings Cheese Mountain Pizza Review

by StevenHelmer

A review of the Kitchen Cravings Cheese Mountain Pizza that is available exclusively at Kwik Trip convenience stores.

Product Description: Cheese Mountain Pizza from the Kwik Trip Kitchen Cravings brand and sold exclusively at Kwik Trip convenience stores. I purchase a slice of this pizza about once a week (usually the sausage variety) for around $2.99 and, on occasion, will purchase an entire pizza for the family to enjoy (the price of the whole pizza does vary a bit depending on what kind of sale they happen to have going on at the time).

Better than Restaurant Pizza

Cheese Mountain Sausage PizzaEven though we do eat pizza on a pretty regular basis in our house, I rarely order it from a restaurant because, at least in our town, the restaurant pizzas don’t really offer much quality for the money. However, I don’t always have time to bake a frozen pizza either and that’s why I’m glad I have the option to purchase a Kitchen Cravings Cheese Mountain Pizza from our local Kwik Trip convenience store.

I actually had an opportunity to try this pizza for free a couple years ago when I was picking up a gallon of milk on my way home from work and was offered a free sample. I was immediately hooked and have been routinely buying this by the slice and, on occasion, ordering whole pizzas ever since. In fact, when people ask me which restaurant offers the best pizza; this is the pizza I refer them to.

There are a couple things I like about this particular pizza. The first, as is usually the case, is the crust. The thicker crusted pizzas they offer have a fantastic flavor in the crust itself and are just the right thickness for me (not paper thin and not so thick it fills me up after only a couple bites). And, even though I don’t normally like thin crust, I will, on occasion at least, make an exception for this brand because their thin crust pizza is actually pretty decent too.

Another thing I really like about this pizza is it doesn’t skimp on the toppings. I picked up a slice of the sausage pizza earlier today and there was almost as much sausage on that one slice as what I would expect to find on an entire pizza that I would purchase elsewhere. This, to me, makes the pizza well worth the money I end up spending on it because it makes for a delicious and filling meal.

The sauce on this pizza is also something I found I enjoy. Granted, there might be a little too much of it (a problem with many pizzas). But, it has a good flavor to it. There’s a decent blend of seasonings in it and, unlike some other sauces, it isn’t too spicy. In other words, this is something even my very picky daughters would enjoy.

Final Opinion

Kitchen Cravings PizzaAs I said before, all it took was one free sample and I was immediately hooked on this pizza. As a result, this is something I do recommend trying if you ever have a chance to. I really believe you will be as impressed as I was.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
It's always convenient to know about the frozen pizzas that are as nice to look at as they are to prepare, serve and eat. In particular, I like the fact that thick- and thin-crusted varieties are competitive with one another.

What would you do with too much sauce on a pizza? It would bother me only if other ingredients were sacrificed.

I've seen the pizza at Kwik Trip, but never tried it. From your review, it sounds as if I am missing out!
