'Frozen pizza' on Serious Eats

Video: See How Frozen Pizza is Made

As most of us ramp up to one of the most epically involved cooking days of the year, pause for a moment and check out this episode of the Discovery Channel's "How It's Made" for a behind-the-scenes peek at a food on the other end of the spectrum—frozen pizza. More

Poll: Is it Pizza?

Is co-opting pizza's good name okay? Yesterday's dessert pizza post got us musing about the meaning of pizza. We know better than to dive headfirst down the pizza-definition-hole with reckless abandon. But there's nothing wrong with a friendly round of "one of these is not like the other." Or, in this case, "are any of these self-proclaimed pizza products at all like pizza?" More

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

Artichoke Basille's Frozen Pizza

As you may have read last week, the Artichoke Basille boys, Francis Garcia and Sal Basille, have partnered with A&P on an Artichoke-branded line of frozen pizzas. According to the company's press release, all A&P stores and its subsidiaries (Waldbaum's, Food Emporium, Pathmark) should be carrying the pies now. I was one of the first to highlight Artichoke on this site back in early 2008, so you know I'd be there to grab a frozen pizza or six to test out for you. More

What Is a Pizza Puff?

[Photograph: Adam Kuban] What is a pizza puff? No, seriously. That's not a rhetorical question. I'm asking you, Chicagoans. OK. Actually, from what I've read and seen firsthand after a visit to a very well-stocked supermarket frozen pizza aisle, it's simply pizzaesque ingredients with a flour tortilla folded around them in an almost envelope-like manner. From everything I've googled on them, I know they're a Chicago thing. So, more specifically, how is a true pizza puff prepared? And what is its natural habitat?... More

Home Run Inn Frozen Pizza. Yes, It's Good

Whenever we mention frozen pizza on Slice (as we did in last week's poll), the subject of Home Run Inn's iced slices almost always comes up. (As it did last week.) The problem is, you can only get HRI frozen pizza in select markets — I've never seen it in NYC (although it appears to have made inroads to Kansas City in the time I've been away). So when I was in Milwaukee over the weekend, I made it a point to pick up a pie to try. More
