A large digornio pizza costs $10.00 for that amount I could buy a fresh hot pizza that tastes a lot better and put the leftovers in the fridge or freezer. I am curious who buys frozen pizza and why?

I've never met a frozen pizza that I liked, although I have seen frozen lobster, crab or smoked salmon pizza at the store, which look pretty good.

The market crash changed the game. Forced all the main Pizza joints to lower their prices. I have to agree with OP, if you are eating frozen pizza consistently.

What kind of store charges ten dollars for a frozen pizza? Unless you live in Hawaii or Alaska.

Like other posters have said, it is the convenience factor that is the biggest seller. I haven't bought a frozen pizza in several years, mostly because I think they are pretty gross, but it was often a quick way to feed two people quickly and cheaply. Most frozen pizzas are five dollars and under, at least from what I've seen.

I honestly much prefer spending the extra few dollars and going to Papa Murphy's and baking at home. A bit more work, but the pizza is much better than frozen or any of the major chains.

Uhm... what?? Changed what game? Wasn't there a well-established frozen pizza market before the market crash? Are ruined hedge fund managers a substantial market share for Tombstone pizzas or something?

I wonder if your pizzas are sprinkled with a special kind of oregano...

First of all a frozen pizza does not cost $10. More like $5 if it's on sale or you have a coupon. I eat frozen pizzas because they are honestly not much worse than the local chains in my area. Seriously, both the Pizza hut and Dominos near my house are terrible. There is an independent place that's decent but it's further away and costs $20 for a large which is more than I can afford on a regular basis.
