Discussion: Cheap vs Authentic Frozen Pizza
Not all frozen pizzas are created equal, as we saw from our frozen pizza discussion a few months ago. A few brands in particular stand out to me in their efforts to make their pizza taste as close to fresh and “real” as possible. DiGiorno, with their claim of delivery pizza-quality and new line of pizzeria! restaurant-quality pizzas, is the prime example.Then there’s the other half of the frozen pizza spectrum – the half that includes Mama Celeste, Jack’s, Orv’s and Totino’s. These brands don’t claim to be anything other than what they are: cheap, satisfying, fake pizza.What do you think? Do some frozen pizza brands accept their fate as low-quality grub, or do all of them try to elevate themselves? Do you think they succeed when they shoot for restaurant quality? Can you think of any classic examples of ultra-cheap frozen pizza? What about high-quality? Tell us what you think.
