I saw this kit for the first time in a long time at Target the other day... I'm going to pick one up and make it.  Never had it before
I'm waiting to hear your thoughts on the Chef Boyardee Pizza. See we all had it as kids growing up and it's one of those childhood memories we like to go back to. Really curious as to your opion as an adult never having this boxed treat as a kid, should be interresting.  8)

my wife used to eat this as a kid, so we will have two opinions in one shot... someone who's had it before as a kid and someone who's never had it.  :-)  She remembers it being "awful" though, but says she thinks her and her brother overcooked it.

Just found this forum!  I also just bought a Chef Boyardee pizza kit over the weekend, haven't made it yet. My Mom used to make these when I was a kid.  She had this big aluminum tray (yikes!) and would spread the dough out thin using butter. I'd help too, we'd rub butter on our hands and start spreading. She'd add onions, hamburger, and what she called "mango"--which was a green pepper (i've never heard anyone else refer to green peppers as "mangos", I grew up in Indiana...) The crust was very thin and mushy, not crispy, and the toppings were heavy, so you couldn't pick it up, had to be eaten with a fork. I loved it!  I bought all the ingredients to make one like my Mom used to (sans aluminum tray!)

Well take a few pictures for us if you can. :chef:
It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.

According to the blogger, the Chef Boyardee pizza tastes like pasta.  Mmmm.

So how much salt is in one serving?


It might depend on the type of pizza kit since apparently there are more than one, but according to calorie-count.com there is 750 mg of sodium, or about 1.9 g of salt.

When I was in the supermarket this morning, I checked the nutrition label on a Chef Boyardee cheese pizza kit. A serving size (there are eight servings) has 730 mg. sodium. By my calculation, that would be between 1/4 and 1/3 t. salt. I also saw the 730 mg. figure at http://www.thedailyplate.com/nutrition-calories/food/generic/chef-boyardee-pizza-kit.

Trin,

I am nominating you to the Chef Boyardee Hall of Fame :chef:.

If Ettore Boiardi, the "Chef", were alive today, he would have you as the official photographer of his pizzas 8).

As an aside, wouldn't you think that the company should know whether there is milk in their product?

I suspect the "May contain milk" information is indeed some legalism.  Under the FDA, the company is required to list ingredients, but not necessarily their sources.  It may be one of the ingredients is derived from cow's milk.  It's also possible they may neglect to add a particular ingredient based on possible unavailability. 

The same thing happens with pharmaceuticals.  Drug companies are required to list both the active and inactive ingredients on their labeling (drug's package insert).  However, the companies are not required to provide the sources of those ingredients, nor will they guarentee the source may not change depending on availability.  This comes up a lot these days with regard to gluten content.  A company might be able to say their product generally does not contain gluten based on current and expected sources of inactive ingredients, like starch, but that doesn't mean every lot that comes off the line from now to eternity will have the same starch from the same source depending on who supplies them the inactive ingredients.  There is no requirement for the suppliers to notify the companies if they have to change sources, a long as the inactive ingredient meets USP and NF requirements.

So, in essence, Trinity is right.  It's a legal thing. ;)

I remember the kits loved them back in the late 70's I think alot of places still carry them. The only problem I thought was you had to get to boxes to have enough dough. I use the Hunts Fire Roasted add a little olive oil, seasalt and garlic salt but the one from chef boyardee was really good!
