Remember Toast-R Pizza?

Not sure if I have the name right--they were flat, disc shaped "pies" with pizza filling inside, that fit into your toaster, came frozen. Kind of like round Pop Tarts. Amy's makes a nice organic one when you can find it, but I have had no success tracking down the original. Always burned my mouth. Anyone seen these recently?

  1. I used to have them as an after school snack. I haven't seen them in years. Probably cause of law suits people buring the roofs of their mouths (LOL)

    1. Hot Pockets makes something like this, full size or mini, if that helps. Matlaw makes a great "pizza roll", but more like an egg roll. They probably take longer to cook than the one you're talking about though.

        The Hot Pockets one actually ain't bad for frozen convenience food fare!

          Ditto the Lean Pockets. The 4 cheese ones (the only vegetarian kind I can find) are pretty darn tasty.

      2. Ha, I definitely ate those as a kid and I remembered that they rarely heated evenly, the center was usually cold...
        Also try Guiltless Gourmet frozen pockets/wraps, they are pretty good if you nuke to defrost then crisp up a bit in the toaster oven (put on foil, they sometimes leak).

        1. This is one of those things that we wanted SOOOO badly when we were kids, and oddly our parents wouldn't buy them for us (go figure.) Just proves mom did know best!

          1. I loved those as a kid and have longed for them for many years now. Somehow the name Ginos comes to my mind when I think of them. I remember the pieces of shredded cheese mixed in the sauce (mostly orange in color!). I loved them and would love to find the orginal ones from my childhood just to see if they are as good as I thought they were as a kid.
