JLawrence, I am surprised to hear you say Papa Murphy's is high, you must have really cheap pizza places around your house. We think it is cheap comparaitively and the prices are the same nationwide or pretty much, plus there are always coupons (or usualy anyway).
Exactly Nita. JLawrence must by talking about Little Caesars.

I'm sitting here looking at a Papa Murphy's coupon for a Family Size Cowboy for 11 bucks. The coupon is good for three pizzas. Oh and here is another one for a Stuffed family size for 13 bucks.

I've never frozen Papa's pizzas. How did that work out?

^^^^ A greater truth has never been uttered. Have two teenaged daughters and one college age who bring over their ravenous friends all the time. We cook three family Papa's everyweek cut them into squares and pack them into ziplocks for the fridge. Toaster oven works great to reheat them.

My favorite brand is Newman's Own 4 cheese...thin, crispy crust/real cheeses. All proceeds to charity! I add bits of whatever veggies are on hand.

IMO: best way to reheat frozen pizza from day before---
bake on 400 degrees just 6-8 minutes-never soggy!

No, I do not like most frozen pizzas. The base tastes like the box (i.e. cardboard), the toppings and cheese taste like rubber. They make good frisbees, that's about it lol.

It works fine, the secret: you need to find a way to make sure the bottom browns but this is true whether you freeze it or just cook it as soon as you get home.

=====================================


And last night, I purchased a 16" Deep Dish 3 ingredient which weighed over 5# for $10 with a coupon at my favorite LOCALLY owned pizza place. And it was hot and I did not have to rely upon my oven which only gets to about 500F.

One slice is a meal so it will take two days to finish (cheaper than making it from scratch).

Totinos.
I can buy like ten of them for ten bucks on a good day at the market.
And the market is closer to my cardboard box than any pizzeria.

In an Italian house frozen pizza is forbidden. My grandmother would be rolling over in her grave if she saw me buy frozen pizza. From a pizzeria fine or homemade.

Or teenage girls for that matter.

Btw everyone ever buy those pre-packaged pizza bases and you and put your own toppings on? Not bad, when baked in the oven the crust and base tastes surprisingly like it was freshly baked, although obviously far from the real thing. It's actually a good compromise between frozen and fresh, depending on the quality of the pizza dough.

there will always be pizza places that are cheaper than another, I think the point here is: normally, compared to many chains whether small or large Papa Murphy's is relatively inexpensive. We have Caseys country stores here now (I don't know about where you live) their pizzas run about $10 for 1 topping, Razonback Pizza, a local chain is about $16 to $20 for a decent pizza. I could go on and on. Papa Murphy's Cowboy family sized pizza would be similar (toppings wise) to what you are getting with a coupon for $10. I don't think that would make Papa Murphy's really expensive like was originally posted.

We love good pizza and, coming from Connecticut, we had a lot of great pizza to pick from.

However, sometimes when we just want to stay home and ALSO have a craving for pizza, these two are the only ones that we like:

1. Red Baron 4-cheese thin crust (or, on occasion, the pan pizza)
2. Kirkland brand (at Costco -- in the freezer; not their food court one)
