Yesterday I went food shopping at Safeway and noticed these Wolfgang Puck frozen pizzas. Since I have tried most of the other frozen pizzas and they were on sale (2 for $10.00), I got 2. I got the tomato with pesto and cheese and BBQ'd chicken. There was also a cheese pizza and a pepparoni one as well, but didn't get those. They were ok, but nothing to write home about. The BBQ chicken one was sweet, I preferred the pesto, chese and tom. one. Has anyone else tried these and did they like them or not or what good frozen pizzas are there out there? I like the Stoffer's French Bread pizzas.

I've tried both the pizzas and soups by Wolfgang...yucko on both...very bland.

I do like the Amy's brand of pizzas. And on a cheat day , DiGiorno Rising Crust.

Funny you should mention the "Puck Pizza's", I saw them in the case at Publix for the first time yesterday... thanks for doing the recon... if they are anything like his middle of the road sodium laden soups I'll be staying away. For a frozen pizza I'll stick to Amy's or California Kitchens... I usually make my own with onion pita bread, homemade sauce, a little green pepper, onion, sliced black olives, chunks of Real mozzarella the size of a shotgun slug, a little sea salt and cracked black pepper, plus fresh basil leaves laid on the top, maybe 8-10... pop that baby in the oven on a cookie sheet at 425 for around 15 minutes, remove, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and gorge.

I've never heard or seen Wolfgang pizzas anywhere but from what everyone is saying I won't bother trying them if I do see them.

I think the best frozen pizza is Freschetta

Have not seen nor tried the frozen variety of Puck's pizza, but, will say that the fresh-made pizza at the restaurants is very good - if you like that style. Have had it three times; twice just south of Nashville, and once in Chicago. All were great - but, they are different, w/o the normal tomato-based sauce.

As to frozen, yea, the Freschetta is indeed excellent, esp. the multi-meat version.

We need to remember that pizza and pasta in Italy had no tomatoe sauces before Columbus brought tomatoes to europe from the new world.

Ditto on the Freshchetta pizza. And also on the WP soups not being good. But in my old age I'm finding that I rarely like canned soup anymore. It all smells like the can to me....

True - actually, pizza, even in its old world home, is not 'pizza' w/o tomato-based sauces - as it was the addition of this (supposedly poisonous) plant's sauce to the top of the flat breads that gave birth to the semi-modern pizza. Going back in history, you will find that 'pizza-like' foods were made by the Egyptians, Greeks, etc., w/o of course, the tomato. [FWIW, Italy is/has asked the EU to grant it's pizzas w/ special designation, to help protect their recipes - and these do include tomato sauces].

I've always liked Red Baron (4 cheese and usually top it myself) and now the California Pizza Kitchen White Pizza.

My biggest complaint is that there are WAY too many Pepperoni Pizzas on the market and not enough other options. Not EVERYONE likes Pepperoni.
