Frozen Pizza: Annie's Rising Crust Organic Supreme

There's a lot of value to be found in ordering high-end versions of typically humble restaurant foods, and I suppose it's possible that the same rule could apply in the grocery store. Actually, I know it works in the condiment aisle, where the $4 mustard is leagues better than its half-price shelfmates. Why can't Annie's Rising Crust Organic Supreme Pizza be worth the ... wait? What? $10.99 for frozen pizza?* All right, let's investigate. More

Frozen Pizza Pockets: Can Tony's or Totino's Match the Hot Pocket?

The three brands are similar in terms of price (cheap!), nutrition statistics (ghastly!), and ingredients (most of them!). Two-packs of Hot Pockets and Tony's Pouches run about $2.50; I paid $3.69 for four smaller Totino's Stuffers, which makes them roughly the same price per ounce. Another similarity: They all look gorgeous straight out of the oven. In the photo below, you'll notice that the Hot Pocket looks like a Hot Pocket, Tony's Pouch looks like a burrito, and the Totino's Stuffer looks like an empanada. More

Frozen Pizza: The Original Naan Pizza Spinach and Paneer Cheese

The crust makes this vaguely Indian pizza worth seeking out. It's quite likely the tastiest frozen pizza crust we've tried. It's a bit thicker than any naan I've seen, with a crisp skin and totally tender interior—this crust has life to it! It had none of the off flavors or density we've come to expect from frozen pizza. We're looking forward to trying another Original Naan Pizza. Have you seen them in any stores near you? More

Frozen Pizza: American Flatbread Revolution

[Photographs: Maggie Hoffman] With frozen pizza, do you get what you pay for? I was a little shocked at the price of the American Flatbread pizza I purchased this week, a 12-inch number topped with tomato sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms, cheese, and herbs. The damage: $11.99. More than I've ever paid for a frozen pizza, though not as much as we shelled out for Domino's new 6-Cheese Wisconsin pie, which is 13.99 for a 12" medium and $15.99 for 14" in Manhattan. But the American Flatbread Revolution pie just may be worth the steep price. The cheese is rich... More

Frozen Pizza: Amy's Cheese and Pesto Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust

[Photographs: Maggie Hoffman] First, the good news. This pizza from Amy's beat last week's freezer-case choice by a mile. It came of the oven golden and bubbling, with nice bits of cheese that got crisp on the edge of the crust, sort of like an Asiago bagel. The copious cheese was nicely stringy and creamy, and the pesto was surprisingly tasty, much better than most I've gotten jarred (though maybe not quite as good as the fresh stuff we make from our balcony plants). The pesto adds a much-needed dose of garlic and oil to each slice. There was... More

Frozen Pizza: Trader Giotto's Pizza Margherita

[Photographs: Maggie Hoffman] I didn't grow up with frozen pizza. My dad used to pop two English Muffins in the toaster oven for us, and top them with marinara sauce and shredded cheese, but that was the extent of my quick-faux-pizza childhood experience. So I come to frozen pizza with an open mind. Is it possible to find tasty frozen pizza? Are there any worth keeping around for when you're in a pinch? We'll see. I started out simple this week with Trader Joe's frozen Pizza Margherita with Mozzarella and Grana cheese.... More

Totino's Pizza Rolls: How Can You Not Love Them?

The only thing wrong with pizza rolls is that you feel like such a damn kid eating them. Also, they are mouth-scaldingly hot just after they come out of the oven but cool off to lukewarm mehishness seemingly within the time it takes to eat two of them. They're like the bananas of the pizza-snack world: There's a sliver-thin window of time when they're perfectly ripe temperature-wise. More
