Is there such a thing as a good frozen pizza?

Seriously, is there? I honestly don't think it's possible to find a quality frozen pizza. I know it's possible to make one, because I've ordered raw pizzas and frozen them, so why aren't there any good frozen pizzas available?

If you can find one you are a God! It is all about taste. They have to mass produce the stuff and freeze it and they have to cut costs down to zero.

You want thick or thin? Most of the thin tastes like cardboard. Digornio and Fresetta are OK for rising crust if you throw extra toppings on them...

I usually get from the local or Papa Murphys. I do make a quick one using Pita Pockets for the crust...

frozen one from costco is decent. I think it's the same one they serve at their snack bar.

I actually prefer the Stouffer's French Bread Pizza the most for frozen pizza-ish items heh.

Nope, that's why they always change the packaging (pics), and add sides:
(wings, cinnabon, breadsticks)
I find that I have to remind myself not to even walk down that aisle, because I hate it every time I have it.

The picture on the box looks yummy though

5/$10 lol, I'm sure they're great. I tried Dr. Oetker's Ristorante and it was ok, nothing special, and at $7 I can get a fresh pizza that tastes 100x better. I've had the other big name brands and they're all garbage, I'm still holding out for a little no-name brand thats actually worth a damn.

i could never get the crust good on the CPK pizzas. Maybe if I had a pizza stone for the oven.

Wolfgang Puck had a decent one when they first came out. Haven't had one in a while.

Haha, you're right. 2 bucks is pretty cheap. They're usually around $4 I think? But my grocery store kicks ass and knows bold flavors when they see them.

I have a different expectation of taste when I'm buying frozen pizza. The purpose of me buying frozen vs. fresh is that I'm paying half as much (or less) so I'm not expecting the taste to be on par with fresh. Usually a decent frozen pizza is just a few dollars less than a reasonably good fresh pizza. My goal when buying frozen is $6 or less, otherwise I'm ordering it fresh.

My go-to spot around here is ~$14 for a whole pie, which will last me 2 meals. I will gladly pay the same, maybe even a dollar more, for a frozen pizza that tastes nearly as good for the convenience factor alone. I'm thinking I need to make my own brand that's worth a sh!t.

no italian community near you to get pizza dough from? use your own toppings and easier than making dough yourself.

Just pick up an $8 Dominos, same price and their new pan pizza isn't all that bad. The best pizza place around here though is about $18-20 for a large pizza that will easily feed 2 twice. Pizza use to be so expensive freshly made. Now the frozen stuff is the same price. I haven't had a frozen pizza in at least 5 years.
