What kind (brand name) are the best? Do they make them in personal size?

Digiorno & Freschetta are head & shoulders above the rest.

Somebody makes a deepdish style that absolutely rocks. I think that's Digiorno.

Freschetta is pretty tastey, especially the chicken.

Bang for the $ though, Totinos Party Pizza is like a sore dick.

Screw the frozen stuff.

Buy a Chef Boyardee kit and build your own. It doesn't take much longer and beats the hell out of the frozen stuff.

Frozen pizzas? Blehhhhh, I'd heat the thing up first and then chow down...yummy.

You've never eaten frozen pizza?

I like those totinos party pizzas. What do they cost, like $.75? Not too great but the crust is crispy and it's practically as cheap as ramen noodles.

California Pizza Kitchen pizzas are the shitnit.

Especially the BBQ chicken, or the 5 cheese and fresh tomato.

http://www.cpk.com/grocery/index.cfm

The pizza are large for personal size, but smaller than a family pizza. I'd guess about 10-10 1/2".

Ya gotta go with:

1.Red Baron
2. Tombstone

in that order.

If you've never had either one of these I pity you.

The Freschetta and D'Giornio thin crusts are BY FAR the best frozen pizzas available...

I watch the show "Unwrapped" on the food network sometimes, and they did a story on the California Pizza Kitchen.

I don't even like chicken on my pizza. They put some non-pizza like ingredients on their pizza.

Really and truly, I prefer CFK's frozen BBQ chicken pizza to half the commercial delivery or dine-in stuff out there. Outside of my KC Strips, it's the most delicious thing to ever come out of my freezer.

Best Bang for Buck is Costco. You can buy a supreme pizza and have them cook it for $8. This is a HUGE, huge pizza. Bigger than anything dominos will bring to your door.

I like CPK a lot, but that isn't pizza. At least, that's how I've convinced myself to enjoy their products. If you don't go in thinking pizza, and keep an open mind there's a very good chance the average person will really enjoy CPK.

Not available outside St. Louis [that I know of], Mama Lucia's is a darn good thin crust/provel offering.

I stick with Totinos and Tombstones myself.. always with extra cheese that I put on myself..

I also like to buy the crust and build my own from time to time... Little Caesars for 5 bucks is probably my fav though.. :)

Any of you do-it-yourselfer's ever try Boboli ready made crusts?

They have a couple different varities, and aren't near as much work and mess of a CBAD kit.

Boboli kicks ass. But, by the time you buy all their shit and the ingredients you want, you could have had a Freschetta already prepared. Tastes about the same, too.

I goes to the store and find a wide variety of brands and prices. The DiGiorno and Freshetta were $7 and $8. That's getting awfully close to Pizza Hut prices it seems. Some of the others were $3-5. I guess I'll just have to try them for myself.

Yeah. I prefer Freschetta, but they are both too expensive. Coupons and specials help though.

Tonys sometimes go for 2 bucks a pop, and they aren't bad IMO. Not as good as Freschetta, but not as big, and not as expensive.

The digiorno's and freshetta's are pretty good. If you have a dillon's or kroger nearby their house brand "kroger" is just as good as digiorno and alot cheaper.:thumb:

Mmm, good homemade pizza.

I've never figured out why they limit you to one topping. Rather than having to cover the entire pizza with something expensive like mushrooms wouldn't it be better for them to cover half of it with something cheaper like hamburger?

I'm gonna get blasted.......but I like the Totinos 10 for $10 pizzas.....bridewanian hates them, so I haven't much say since I don't do the shopping.

Tony's is pretty good, but I like the HyVee brand just as well.

Not that particular of a pallete I guess.

Well, I never asked for another topping, but I wondered what they would charge. I'm happy if I just get pepporoni, though I would prefer a little sausage and mushrooms as well.

That frozen stuff is lame. However, for a buck, those Totino's aren't so bad.

I love baking my own pizza and hope to have my own pizzaria someday. When you do a pie at home, jack that oven up to 500 or the highest setting you can go. Your pizza crust is 90% of that pizza, if you don't make a good crust- your pizza is shot.

If you don't want to make your own crust, then try this: Get a french loaf from the bakery. Slice the puppy in half, and then halve the bread so you now have four sliced pieces of French loaf. Lather some homemade pizza sauce on and then throw whatever you like on there and bake that...it's yummy, cheap, and so much better than that frozen sh*t.

If you give me a rep, I might be kind enough to send you some of my homemade recipes.

Happy eating...

My Mom used to do something similar with white bread, she would cut off the crusts, ball up the white bread, flatten it out put some toppings on it with the sauce, fold it over and cook.

If I could stand cooking at all I would learn exatly what she did.

It's labor costs. They've got Indonesians putting mushrooms on at a rate of 10,000 pizzas per hour. Stopping that would cost a fortune.
