Frozen pizza reviews

In the interests of science, is there any interest in a comparison review of the various frozen pizza brands? Note that this project, if there is any interest, will require me to buy, prepare, and eat one of each of the pizzas that I review (with the exception of the 'Totinos Party Pizza' bleh!). Oh the sacrifices we make for science...

  1. If -- and ONLY if -- you bring the same degree of dedication and professionalism to this project that you bring to your MRE reviews.

    I don't know how I'd work that into disaster preparedness, but I'll try.

    You DO make some sacrifices for us mere mortals, don't you?


    There are more of these than you can shake a stick at. Google Frozen Pizza Taste Test for lots more.

  3. Needless to say, Scorpio, if I agreed with those tests (which are done by bland boring people with bland boring tastes, not by bona-fide computer geek pizza penguins!), I wouldn't be interested in doing reviews. Besides, they don't review most of the pizzas available locally to me.

    I mean, TONY'S pizza got high marks? Crap, that's as nasty as Totino's!

  4. No..

    I'm not interested in what Penguin's and monkeys think what their favorite pizza is.

    It's all a matter of choice. :-)

  5. Please review. I know pizza.

  6. What's to prepare? You eat them right out the box, right? You are a penquin, after all. All it would take is a few frozen anchovies to sway your vote, I bet.

  7. As I explained elsewhere, I love anchovies, but the ones they put on pizzas are too salty. So my test will be with straight pepperoni pizzas, prepared according to the instructions on the box. For comparison purposes I will also bring in two ringers -- a pepperoni pizza from Premier Pizza (a "gourmet" pizzaria here in San Jose), and a pepperoni pizza from Little Caesar's pizza. All pizzas will be graded on: crust, sauce, cheese, pepperoni (quality and quantity). I estimate that the test will take approximately two weeks and require two months of walking an hour a day on the treadmill to take care of the ten pounds I estimate that I will gain during the test, but hey, we must all sacrifice for science, eh?

  8. Go for it, but only if you toss in a home made pizza.


  9. He, he, he.

    I love to razz you.

  10. Hmm, a home made pizza truly from scratch is going far beyond the scope of "The Bachelor's Cookbook". However, I might pick up one of those pre-made "pizza crusts" and populate it with sauce and cheese and pepperoni. That won't be much more work than a frozen pizza, thus not too much work for the potential future purchasers of "The Bachelor's Cookbook" (if TBC ever gets to be more than 10 pages long :-).

  11. My roommate does frozen pizza more often than church. You need Di Giorno and DiGiorno stuffed crust. And getting pre-made ones that have not been frozen is also a possibility. You may be able to buy uncooked ones at Costco.

  12. Generally speaking, frozen pizzas are pretty awful. Having said that, I've eaten my share. I'll go with the DiGiorno garlic bread crust.
