Frozen Pizzas! Is there such a thing as a good one?!!!

36 replies
Found 30th Jan 2009
I've tried em all i think and can honestly say theres not a decent tasting frozen pizza out there so ive officially quit them for good.

Can anyone honestly name one out there that doesnt taste like your eating pepperoni on toasted polystyrene with plastic cheese?

Nope....make my own

some kill you slower than others so that may count as a good thing

I am of the same opinion of you but I was surprised by the quality of, I think it's Goodfellas, where the pizza appears to be on uncooked dough and therefore rises in the oven. Tastes a little like fresh.

Although I have now discovered how cheap raw pizza bases are, get some passata and then smother with cheese and other toppings.

NO! They're all rotten - the nearest thing to a real one are the Pizza Express ones.... make your own...so much tastier and cheaper :thumbsup:

someone has to keep you under control :whistling:

make your own, you can't go wrong

Sainsbury's used to do an Italian stonebaked frozen pizza that was almost as good as the real thing. Best pizza i have ever had was actually at a railway station though.

make your own.......when I have the kids over we make alls sorts of concoctions and they taste incredible, make my own tomato sauce base using a bit of chilli and lots of sundried/fresh tomatoes and basil

although I still don't thing a big breakfast pizza will take off lol but my nephew loves it

Yup Goodfellas La Bottegga or whatever its called ftw.
On a side note. That restaurant in Sheffield, Runaway Girl used to be our regular haunt before we went to The Leadmill. We didn't even know it was a restaurant! Thought it was a swanky cocktail bar.
(srsly)

:friends:to my little angel ;-)

quite like chicago town takeaway and the small ones with the pastry/dough hybrid base thing
dr oeteker (or whoever) mozzarella with the pesto quite nice too imo
used to eat those frescheta things - not seen around in a while though.

Try using HP BBQ sauce on the base !
oooooooooh yeah baby :-D

has anyone mentioned the pizza express ones you can get?

Pollo Ad Astra my favourite.

They like £4 tho

Chicago Town,the individual ones are the only ones i rate,triple cheese mmmmm

In iceland they do cheese feast takeaway pizzas with tomato herb sauce in the crust its amazing!!!..not sure of the brand though....they are really big too!!

how do you make dough? I tried once and it was crumbly and greasy... tasted like flour and cooked like a biscuit.

Goodfella's used to be good a few years ago but they seemed to change their sauce and they weren't as good after that. But probably still the best frozen.

I use Jamie's recipe

jamieoliver.com/rec…ugh

if you're gonna freeze some make sure you knock the air out of it or you'll get ice crystals and a soggy texture when defrosted

I used ziplock bags too

ps cook in a hot oven....doesn't take long

Thanks for that! Good old Jamie, use his roast potato recipe.

I just posted 'La Bottega' pizzas which are made by goodfella's. Half price in Tescos. The base on these pizzas is much better than average. the crusts are even tasty because they are ciabatta. £1.39 unti 10FEB08

Goodfella's/Chicago Town are the best UK forzen pizzas. There are quite a few good ones in the US, Tombstone and Red Barron come to mind...

Frozen pizzas are better if they have been stored correctly (that is not defrosted/refrozen) and not stored for a very long time.

Chicago town takeaway pepperoni pile up with tomato sauce stuffed crust.

The most amazing pizza you can buy from a supermarket.

always will be Dr O's, nothing else comes close!
