In the event that
1. you used to like Tombstone's 30 years ago,
2. these days not so much, and
3. you live in Wisconsin,

you'll love these

These weren't the 11 best frozen pizzas. These apparently were all 11 frozen pizzas the testers found in the store and they ranked them from best to worst. They didn't like the Celeste pizza at all.

Under the circumstances it's #9 out of 11 ranking seems appropriate.
 
2014-04-03 06:24:45 PM  
If I'm going to eat a frozen pizza, it's because I want something that isn't trying to resemble a real pizza. I want something extra crappy, but delicious, like a Totino's Party Pizza with that weird sausage dust:

In truth, the article's not the 11 best pizzas, just 11 random pizzas they tried and ranked.

And ranking Ellio's midpack? Some years ago they intentionally made their recipe bland to appeal to small children.

A DiGiorno or Freschetta cheese pizza, doctored up (onion, sliced tomato, bell pepper, sliced green olive, dabs of pesto, extra parmesan and/or mozzarella) is quick and not half bad.  No, it's not as good as at the pizza joint, but it doesn't involve getting in the car or waiting for the delivery guy.

Red Baron is the best frozen pizza currently out there, IMHO... but when I was a kid, maybe about 25 or 30 years ago, I used to LOVE Chef Boyardee frozen pizzas... They were small and there were eight in a box, two blocks of four each... I'd break off two after school for a snack, and they were SO good... Long gone, the only Chef Boyardee pizza I can find now is the make-your-own pizza kits and they are not nearly as good... sigh...

TerminalEchoes: jaylectricity: Celeste nullifies the validity of that list.

Seconded.


Thirded.  Totino's Party Pizzas are miles better than Celeste "pizzas", and Totino's are what I would call the low end of the edibility spectrum of pizza.  They are, however, the pizza most improved by being cooked on a Presto Pizzaz (or similar rotating pizza cooker device).

I did like that the testers pointed out that the sauce on Tombstone pizzas left them wanting.  That's my entire problem with Tombstone pizzas, but it's worse than just the sauce leaving me wanting: the sauce actually scares me.  You know how you can pour things on frozen pizzas before cooking to change the flavor a bit, like hot sauce?  Usually that flavor sinks into the pizza sauce, but now with Tombstone pizzas.  That pizza sauce is some kind of water-repulsing substance; NOTHING soaks into it.  Instead of the sauce tasting different, you taste the hot sauce, THEN the original pizza sauce separately.  And the pizza sauce is farking gross.

Oh yes, the list fails without this:

smalltownfoodsnobs.files.wordpress.com

Admittedly you have to have a Costco card to get them, but these things are among the tastiest frozen pizzas I've ever had.  I've had better - just about anything with rising crust will beat them - but they're the king of non-rising crust pizzas.

Also, if you happen to be in an area that has a Kroger-brand store (which is damn near the whole country):

s3.amazonaws.com

Way better than DiGiorno if you ask me.  And several bucks cheaper.

If you are going for convenience:

Package of pizza crusts
Bottle of spaghetti sauce
Block of mozzarella
Red pepper flakes
Shaker of parmesan
Cook at 550F for 5 to 10 min until cheese is sufficiently bubbly and toasted at the edges/tops

Still only moderate on the overall pizza scale, but way better than any frozen and still only takes a minute of busy time.  I keep the crusts frozen (no need to thaw) and usually have a bottle of sauce in the fridge anyways, so the only real expirable is the cheese.

stappawho: The Kirkland Cheese Pizzas at Costco are damn good for frozen pizza.  Top them with whatever you want.

However, they are not good reheated so make sure you finish it off round one.


I had one for the first time a few weeks ago and was less than thrilled. Frankly I think I've been spoiled by living in Chicago and New York for the last quarter century, as proud as I am of my Kirkland roots. (And this by no means lessens my love of Costco, where I buy everything from groceries to my TV to my laptop to my kickass Hawaiian shirt from the Maui Costco.)

Cut up some mushrooms, onions, olives and whatever and add it to a Tombstone with a little more cheese. Bake it till the crust is done, then broil it till the top is done.

He's the one who repeatedly posts that cherry-picked graph of average global temperatures with the start and endpoints adjusted so it shows no average increase.  Nevermind the fact that if you pick almost literally any other start or endpoints from the available data you get an upward trend, to say nothing of the data as a whole.

He's a disingenuous troll.  Ignore him.

I get the Ultra Thin Crust Pepperoni. You can't beat it for $5. They don't skimp on the toppings. It just tends to make a little mess in my oven.


Why?  You should invest in a pizza stone.  Seriously, get the chix bacon ranch and add artichokes and blue cheese.  Unless blue cheese isn't your bag.

Totino's is a tasty, pizza-like food.  Bought a Tony's pizza by mistake once.  The boxes are similar, but Tony's is much worse.

Wal-Mart's fresh-made pizza, by their deli, is pretty good.  It's not frozen, just refrigerated.  A shiat-ton of toppings, good amount of cheese.

i can testify to the goodness of Trader Joes 4-Cheese Pizza.

I, too loathe frozen pizzas.  But one day the wife showed up with that and said "we tasted this at the store and it was good."  (TJ's does always have a taste of something available.)  So I cooked it up for the boy and had a slice to see what was so good.  And it was indeed amazingly good... for a frozen pizza.  Far better than I thought possible.

But it still tastes like a frozen pizza.

Be warned, though, one doesn't just walk into Trader Joes and buy a decent frozen pizza.  It has to be that specific pizza, the one pictured.

As a lazy alcoholic that lives in an urban environment -- where every corner market has a wide array of frozen pizza to take the edge off at 3 am -- I was sure Amy's would run away with this. My local store hasn't had 4-cheese in like a year, but they always have Margherita, and that's the best frozen I can ever find.

I was shocked that TJ's took the prize. Every single one of their frozen pizzas that I've ever tried has been a cheeseless dry abortion. But I completely gave on them like 4 years ago, so maybe I need to try again.

Although... csb time!

My youngest kid loves the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  He asked me if I could buy some pizza gyoza, which apparently are the Turtles' favorite food.

Obviously, nobody sells a food abomination like that... so I made some.

They were more like Jiaozi, because I didn't think the thin gyoza wrappers would hold up to the filling (pizza sauce, mozzarella, diced pepperoni).

They were pretty good, actually.

So if I ever find those... *things*... in the local grocery, I might try them,

HindiDiscoMonster: Alonjar: Can someone give me a recipe for an actual New York style pizza?  I dont care if I have to mix the dough myself.. just tell me how the hell they are made!

the first step is to get some water from NYC... the water makes all the diff. in the dough.
real Mozzarella, and Provolone if you like it, fresh Basil and Oregano... and home made Marinara/Pizza Sauce... very little difference between the two... and the trick to cutting the acidity of the tomatoes is placing a couple of carrots in the sauce as it cooks (take them out before using of course).


As stated, its mostly the water to make the dough, and everything else. water is water of course, but different locations have different mineral profiles to the municipal water and that's what makes the water taste different from location to location.

you can make a New york STYLE pizza all you want, but unless the stuff is made from that new york water, or water that has had it's mineral profile modified, it's never going to taste the same..

Only 4 on that list are available at my supermarket. Ellio's I would Never get. Mama Celeste I tried but didn't think much of. Tombstones seem to be just 1 step above the Generic ones like the Jack's shown above wrapped the same that were on sale last week for 5 for $10 so you can guess where I rank them. MMMM, 2 Dollar Pizza!!! Yuk. DiGiorno's aren't that bad but I prefer the Freschetta's mentioned above. Whether it's the soft crust that you have to use a cookie sheet for instead of just throwing the DiGiorno's on the rack I can't say. They just seem marginally better to me.

Absolutely loved these when I could find them easily. They used an actual crust that was more biscuit-like than pizza dough.

And if they're going for stuff like that, where the hell is the Costco pizza they've started carrying lately? It seems like it uses actual (read: not Americanized) Provolone cheese based on the taste.

Then to go Hollywood I add goat cheese as the topping ($5) on top of the spread out dough and pesto. Otherwise I top with cheap Mozzarella. Either way it beats anything frozen.

For frozen, we like Uno's and Home Run inn for our deep-dish and flat style.  But just as popular, we have a   Papa Murphy's franchise in town that does take-and bake fresh pizza you finish at home.  Their take on a stuffed-crust "Chicago style" is pretty good, since you bake it on your own timetable.  Tasty crust. Good toppings. Though they are meant to be immediately cooked when you get them home, we buy three on the discount days, freeze two, and enjoy one right away.  One slice is a full meal.

WHY CAN'T I GET THIS ANYMORE?!?!?!


Litigation would be my first guess.

If there's an Aldi near you, totally worth a try.

ThatDarkFellow: Get the fark out of here with that list.

I prefer this over pretty much any other "fresh" pizza in the DFW area.


We tried this brand for the first time about a year ago because it was on sale BOGO at Publix Supermarket. I was skeptical as the product packaging didn't "grab" me. I can say with absolute conviction that it is the best damn frozen pizza out there, and as ThatDarkFellow already stated, it is better than any of the big chain's fresh pies. The "Sausage and Uncured Pepperoni" variety is the family favorite.

Red Baron for me. $2.50 @ Sam's when you buy a four-pack, and the crust and sauce are acceptable.

Oh, and the Whole Foods one looks like a take-and-bake, which isn't the same as frozen.

As someone who has actually been to the Home Run Inn restaurant, I can verify their frozen pizza is as good to the fresh made item as you can get.

Pretty much. I was born in Chicago and the places that try to pass their stuff off as "Chicago Style" have been complete and terrible failures. At this point I don't even bother to try because these people are so far off base I'm not even sure THEY'VE tried the actual thing before.

Stouffer's French Bread or small Red Baron's (about 5", not the minis).

My brain can't process that photo. Where was that slice cut from? How the heck is it being lifted that way with a fork?


If you look at the far right, there seems to be a sliver of empty pan showing, which would appear to explain that, at least. That still doesn't address the gravity+fork issue.

Oh, I saw the slice missing from the pizza. But the slice that the fork is preventing from floating away is from a larger pie.

yukichigai: Kroger


I was going to mention Kroger store brand pizzas as well. They aren't bad for the money and they have a decent variety. Jack's aren't bad either.

We don't eat frozen pizza often but when we do, I always doctor it up some. Extra mozzarella or some grated parmesan, and some of them cry out for some extra Italian seasoning.

We generally go with Chef Boyardee pizza mixes for cheap home pizzas though. I've been making those since I was a kid and for some reason I've always loved that pizza sauce.

Learn to make your own with real ingredients for super cheap.


Pizza Dough:

1 1/2 cups luke warm water
1 packet yeast
1 teaspoon sugar

Whisk in a large bowl and let sit for ten or so minutes. If your yeast is good, it will get foamy on top.

Add to the bowl:

1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Teaspoon salt
2 Cups of all purpose flour

Whisk again to combine well and then add two more cups of flour and combine. (at this point it's too thick for the whisk).

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface or pastry mat and kneed for a good ten minutes.

Toss it back into lightly oiled bowl and cover and allow to rise until it is doubled in size.

At this point you can either make pizza or store the dough in the fridge for up to a week.

Makes enough dough for one large thick crust or two large thin crusts.


Pizza Sauce:

Toss into a blender:

2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomato paste
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup dried parmesan cheese (the plain old Kraft stuff is fine)

Blend and allow it to sit so the flavors combine. I let it sit the whole time the pizza crust is rising.


Make a pizza:

Rub your pizza pan with olive oil and pat out your dough. Set pan aside and allow the dough to rise a bit more for 15 minutes. (If you don't have a pizza pan, I've used cookie sheets in a pinch.)

Add a layer of sauce, a layer of cheese and then your toppings.

Bake thin crust at 425 for 16 minutes. Bake thick crust at 375 for 23 minutes. (A thick layer of toppings will increase baking time)

I'd like a slice of that.

Pokey.Clyde: If all of these frozen pizzas are so damn good, why the hell haven't I even heard of most of them?


In terms of Home Run Inn: Not everyone sells them. For some reason here (DFW area) only "healthy food" grocery stores carry them. I guess it's because the box says all natural or something. Whole Foods and Sprouts usually has them for about 7-8 bucks.
 
2014-04-04 04:37:24 AM  
grab a can of olives, a can of mushrooms and a packet of pepperoni(dollar store) and get yourself a hunk of asiago cheese(~$5-10 depending where you live. If you can't get asiago just use mozzarella.)

Grab a few of the cheapest ass sausage pizzas you can find.

Combine. Add about 5 minutes onto the cooking time listed in the directions on the pizzas, to account for the extra toppings. Blot any excess oil off the top with paper towel when it comes out of the oven.

Total cost per pizza is less than fancy frozen ones, quality is comparable.

a particular individual: Cut up some mushrooms, onions, olives and whatever and add it to a Tombstone with a little more cheese. Bake it till the crust is done, then broil it till the top is done.


And rub the bottom with chili oil before you bake it.

I've never liked frozen pizzas. Just make English muffin pizzas and put whatever you want on them.

Hey, that's my line!  But ya gotta try the Brew Pub pizza just above you.  Either the four meat or supreme.

Every once in a while, I decide to be frugal and try a $6 frozen pizza instead of the $9 takeout pizza, and I'm always sorry I did.  None of them at my store are all that good, however it's important to look at the ingredient list and make sure they're made with actual cheese.

In the interest of getting less fat, I buy frozen bread dough, and make semi home made pizza.  That way I have to plan in advance and let it defrost. Each frozen loaf makes two pies, you can make one, but it's a heavy crust. It's about as good as the local average pizza place, and I'm not shoving pizza down my face every time I have a craving.

I would love to try these.  I was a big fan of the rubbery, spicy goodness of the pre-Kraft Tombstone.  Always had a hard time calling it a "pizza" though, not sure what it was, just stuck with the term "Tombstone".


Sadly, Pep's is not available anywhere near me.

I can't recommend. They even make you put the cookies on yourself.


That cookies thing is so utterly desperate.  Next they'll be taking chicken slyme and calling it "WYNGS."

Why, why???  Disgusting.

I opt for the supermarket take-and-bakes over frozen. Except for certain stores, that is. Most of them aren't bad, but I recently got one from the nearby Walmart Neighborhood market and it was blander than food from Olive Garden, and that's saying something.

If I do get frozen it's either Freschetta or Red Baron. I like the latter's single pizzas, plus if you're wanting pizza, but it's summer & you don't want to heat the oven up you can pop them in the microwave.

You're asking the wrong question.

What DiGiorno is asking with that ridiculous photoshop done by some unaffiliated person is--"How high do you have to be to buy this product?"

The answer is always, "This much.  This much high."
