Subway Flatizza

My review:

Oh, yuck. 0 out of 5.

Tough bread - tastes like the yoga mats the bread was made from. Mediocre sauce and cheese.

Probably this was the least enjoyable food item I've had in a month. Frozen pizzas are usually better than this.

Avoid. That's all.

    Subway recently introduced flatbread for their sandwiches here in Japan. It must be different because I thought it tasted pretty good.

      I HATED it too... the flatbread was hard as a rock, and worse, the sauce was SWEET. Ick. The flatbread is okay as a sandwich but when they 'grill' it to make the flatizza it transforms into a slab of inedible concrete.

        Just another inane gimmick. How 'bout for their Jewish customers they make a "matza pizza"?

          Not worth the effort for 8 days a year..............

          FYI>>>40 years ago when Subway was just getting started, they didn't bake their own vile bread. Instead they got their sub rolls from Leon's Bakery in your hometown of Hamden (where I was the purchasing manager at the time).

            That small place? Really? That's where all the hotties worked when I was in High School

              In the early 70s they bought the former Finast at 1655 Dixwell, and although the retail storefront was small there was almost 40,00 sq feet of production area in the back. They made all the subs for Subway and Pumpernickel Pub, etc.

                AHA! So THAT'S what happened to the 1st Nat'l Market next to the Strand.

            They could call it the m'tziytzah!

              Um...do you know what metzitzah (b'peh) actually is? And if you do, too funny.

                Yes I do! It took me forever to find the correct spelling.

                Yes, they could but, somehow I'm not sure it would catch on and be a big hit. Also, wouldn't it be an oxymoron since matzoh contains no "shortening"?

              Thanks for taking that bullet for me. I've considered getting one several times but haven't taken the plunge.

                Can't be any more disgusting than their breakfasts craps I mean wraps.

                  Subway is for sandwiches.

                    Even that is debatable.

                    Since they can't make decent bread... why should they make decent crust?

                      To be clear: they aren't 'making crust'.

                      They just use a piece of the flatbread they use for their sandwiches, put pizza toppings on it, and flash-cook it in the warming oven. To me it looks like a way to use up the unpopular flatbreads and the toppings from when they sold even-more-unpopular mini-pizzas.

                        maybe they should just make round flatbreads and use them as a give-away for kids - edible ( or inedible) frisbee- probably the best use for them!

                      Thanks for being brave enough to test that one out.
                      If they were going to go in a pizza direction, maybe splitting a roll and making like a Stouffer's French bread type thing might work better.

                        Had them in Florida a couple of times for a quick snack, two for $5? To be honest they weren't all that bad but I suppose we didn't expect much.
