My roommate and I were at the grocery store the other day and we decided to get pizzas for dinner. My friend picked out a tried and true favorite, Amy's Spinach Pizza, while I decided to try something new, Tandoor Chef Naan Cilantro Pesto Pizza. I noticed that the box contained two servings, so I decided that $2.99 for both dinner and the next day's lunch would be a great deal.

Tandoor Chef describes this pizza as, "Hand-stretched, all-natural artisan crust covered with a rich pesto sauce and topped with fresh mozzarella cheese, cilantro and tomatoes and fired in a Tandoor oven." Each pizza is supposed to be 2 servings, but a peek into the cardboard box revealed that there was no way a half of this pizza was going to make a satisfying dinner, so while it was in the oven getting toasty, I chopped up a big salad to accompany it. I down to enjoy my meal and after one bite, I was regretting not joining my roommate on the Amy's Pizza train.

The tomatoes were delightfully juicy, but came off in one bite, taking some cheese and sauce with them, thus making a small mess. The cheese was layered on in a fairly thick manner, providing the perfect chewy and gooey experience that I was hoping for. The crust was just as I had expected from naan, being thick and doughy with crispy, crunchy edges. The pesto is where I ran into trouble. I usually love pesto, but when it says "Cilantro Pesto", don't take the "Cilantro" part lightly. The cilantro was so overpowering and spicy that it left my mouth with a burning sensation after each bite. After one slice, I thought I had had enough; but I ended up finishing both slices when my mouth had cooled off a bit.
