Imagine a wonderful frozen pizza

What does it look like? what package is it in? How is it different from takeout/delivery? How does it make you feel?

      I've never had a little caesars...what is good about it? What could be even better?

    2. Looks like a pizza. In a cardboard frozen-pizza package. Not as good as a fresh-baked pizza, but DiGiorno OK in a pinch. If I eat enough it makes me feel full.

      1. My imagination isn't that good....Frozen pizza at its best is pretty bad. I feel bad for any part of the country where frozen pizza is their best option.

          you nailed my answer completely.

          I cant imagine a good frozen pizza.

            What is bad about a frozen pizza? What is it you can't imagine ever being better?

              Whats bad?... Where do I start...? cardboard crust, cheap cheese, terrible taste.

              I prefer a thin crust freshly cooked from my local mom & pop pizzeria. Takes about the same ammount of time, and is 100% better.

                I'm with ya, sws, except 1000% better.

                  I hears ya too, sws, but every once in a while, after some late night hijinx and bad prep work, we might find the local mom & pop scene all closed. Sometimes the cardboard crust, cheap cheese, and terrible taste is like a warm blanket ;-/)

                    I fry up some clean out the fridge eggs, but man, frozen pizza is like gettin' woken up in the middle of a wet dream. No thanks.

          2. It exists in the form of Gino's East.

            1. My expectations for frozen pizza are completely different than what I look for in a real pizza. When I crave frozen pizza, and it does happen about once a year, I'm looking for a Tostino's Party Pizza with pepperoni. And when I have one, I find it very comforting.

                I love the Totino's Crispy Party Pizza... I have to say the whole name becase it makes me happy. I think frozen pizza crust gets too dry but Totino's doesn't have any side crust which makes it perfect. Also, the thinness means that I can actually have a crunchy crust and a soft top. The teeny pepperoni's are good too- the one with the whole slices is not as good.
