Just had my first Lou Malnati's "

I'm not sure if it can be considered a frozen pizza but I just had a Lou Malnati's and it was absolutely delicious. They make their Pizzas heavy on the cheese and have crushed Tomatoes instead of sauce. They don't have a lot of crust which is something that I love about Pizza but that is just a personal preference. They are rediculously expensive mainly because of the overnight shipping but they are worth it once in a while.

  1. it's even more worth it when you live here and can get them fresh!

    I'm glad you liked it so much!

    1. My brother-in-law is from the Chicago area, and he and my sister love the Malnati's pizzas so they give us a gift certificate every year for Christmas. I've found the best way to cook them is to remove the pizza from the tin and to wipe both it and the tin with a towel to remove any frost or condensation. Then spread a very thin layer of cooking oil on the tin with a paper towel and return the pizza. You get a nice crispy crust that way. Also- an easy wasy to tell if they're done without overcooking is to insert a thin metal skewer into the center. If it is more than luke warm to the touch (it doesn't have to be burning hot) when I pull it out then the pizza is ready.

      I usually get the variety pack, but I enjoy the Veggie ones the best.
