Trader Joe's Tarte Au Brie Et Aux Tomates (A Very French Thin Crust With Brie And Tomatoes)
I was alerted to the existence of this product by an article in a recent Fearless Flyer. It's sorta pizza, but also sorta not: I can pretty much guarantee that it's the thinnest pizza crust you've ever had, and the brie cheese is obviously not exactly your standard pizza topping.
Still, it's quite good. Sadly, ours was undercooked, despite getting the full recommended 10 minutes at a true 450 degrees (verified, as always, with an oven thermometer); the center of the crust was limp and soggy. I liked it anyway. The braided edge of the crust is a nice touch.
Will I buy it again?
Probably not. It's tasty, but loaded with fat: One serving (half of the pizza) has 50% of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat. That's a bit much for me to make a habit of.
