Thread: Pizza!

    Default Pizza!

    Is it possible to make a pizza from one of those frozen ones
    I see on the shelves at supermarkets? I want one with cheese
    on it and not spinach. Maybe I should just go and buy one.

    I've only ever used them once. Not worth the hype, or the price.

    I didn't care for them, but I'm a NYC pizza type, anyway.
    All that crust, and it has a kind of sweet taste that I didn't like,
    but it's been a long time since I've tried them. Reminds me that
    they used to advertise all the time, but I don't remember seeing
    one of their ads for ages now.

    I've found some Italian bases. Cryovaced, and quite resonable in price.

    Great for those times when I'm too knackered to make my 10 min dough.


    > All that crust, and it has a kind of sweet taste that I didn't like,



    *Now* I remember why I didn't go back to them!!

    Same same........ they've disappeared off the shelves over here.

    In the same "tried one once - never again!" category...

    Puff pastry sheet as a pizza crust. http://i42.tinypic.com/s63lzo.jpg

    Maybe if I'd pre-baked the puff pastry a little first.

    I had such high hopes.

    You got all of that out of it? I thought it tasted like cardboard.

    It was nearing the expiration date so I put on my thinking cap and came
    up with that!

    Or maybe a troll?

    he was bound tio geta serious response from somebody with those 5
    threads *in a row*. That should have been your first clue. The
    "Nomen Nescio" should have been an even bigger clue.

    You're on your own with not liking Tater Tots. I love them (the plain
    kind, not the ones with "seasoning").

    I love them too and have to restrain myself by reading the ingredient
    list and thinking of how awful it is from buying them. I can eat an
    entire bag.

    I was surprised to find some fast food places in the south (Sonic, for
    one) serve Tater Tots. Just struck me as weird. Not my favorite...
    french fries are way better IMO.

    Boboli crusts are OK in a pinch. We get them at the "old bread" store
    for $1.50 and keep a few in the freezer.

    Is this a trick question?

    YOu can buy Boboli pizza bases at any major supermarket. ANybody
    who buys frozen pizzas has had experience with adding what the
    mfr missed. (Like anchovies)

    FWIW: The ones you buy from the supermarket ARE pizzas,
    although perhaps lacking - in your opinion. Add, remove, modify,
    whatever. WHo has not added jalapenos, or extra I. Sausage,
    or extra cheese, or anchovies? Frozen pizzas are just the starting
    point.....

    Why not just buy the base and build your own? IF
    you have a bread machine (with a dough cycle) you can make
    better pizza dough than you will find at the supermarket anyway.

    Curious,

    Alex
