Trin,

I got a big kick out of the instructions on the Tony's pizza:

KEEP FROZEN
NOT READY TO EAT
COOK BEFORE SERVING

I guess those instructions are for some alien being that might visit our planet.

Thats were it all started for me in College eating Tonys! Cant even fathom the amount of these I consumed, But I don't think I ever read the instructions. I did 425 directly on rack let some else clean up crumbs  :) thought it was GReat!
Now I know a little more, its  Stouffer's French bread  when 1/2 price only!
oh anybody try the frozen  Mystic pizza? or Tree Top? and now the new craze is Wood fired oven crust?Yeah right ! about 8 makes on shelves (only looking here)
or how about NY actually that was very good and very expensive, actual NY style slices frozen in NY  but it came out to like 2 bucks a slice? Not.

 HAHAHA!!! Yeah,,, I Noticed that too... I read it and I was like "Well, DUHHH!!!" :-D
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.

They have more types of frozen pizza at my local Kroger's then I can shake a peel at! :-D
 The trouble is, Some can get over 6-7 bucks, And for that much I can get my guy's at bambino's to make one hot and now! :)

I like the little Totino's pies (the cheese ones, anyways), and Freschetta makes a thin crust version that's pretty good. I'll usually throw some black olives and mushrooms on top and call it done. What's that old line? Pizza's a lot like you-know-what........even when it's bad, it's still pretty good. ;D

I really enjoy an occasional Stauffer's French Bread Pizza.  ;D

Here is an old favorite of mine growing up in N.Y., and I wonder if I would still like it after all these years?!

...I have not been able to find it out here in Colorado, I wish I could.

West Country,
The Tree is Alive and well here in New Jersey, also one of the better ones I have tried. Stouffer"s good when they are 2 for 1. Iam Staying clear of the frozen aisle these days, as I can whip up an emergency dough in only 1 1/2 hrs. that blows these away! Sorry trinity
BUT,
I was in Park City Utah skiing this week where they had a P- Hut in the resort I was in (Westgate)  which I P- Passed on  :) A visitor from salt lake brought some Take and Bake Papa Murphy's up the mountain and I was quite impressed enough to grab a few pictures. I will put up some pics of them later tonight.
At least you get to bake it yourself.

So here is the Papa Murphy's I did in Utah . Directions say leave out for at least 30 min before baking. Dough is very wet Not sure how its I did not see it  made But I know it would be hard to handle if it was not on the baking tray. It is cooked at 425 and it DOES brown up without removing from tray. But like me and all reading here I had to tinker with it in the oven. It also says bake 1 at a time ? I managed 3 They make a thin crust a deep dish and traditional as well. The first is a meat lover ham, pep, sausage other is a thin special
Nice sauce, very tasty cheese, and toppings too! For the price $9.99 large and the taste I reccomend this pizza over frozen any day

Yea John...your Pies look good above. I used to get the Papa Murphy's out here in Colorado once in a while. I liked their thin crust version, and I usually end up taking off some of the cheese and toppings before I cook them because they pile it on pretty heavily (but I know a lot of people like that)!

I miss Tree Tavern - wish it was local. I may have to mail order a few for nostalgia's sake one of these days.

How do they ship em? I used to get omaha steaks once in a while I could have used that set up and shipped you a a half dozen. And Yes did remove some od the toppings too much! and yes I like the thin crust better.

John-
I don't even know if they ship those (?)
...I would have to research that a bit, and would not want you to go through that trouble. I appreciate that offer.  Let me PM you...got another question for you!

Yo Trin! We have them here. I've tried the big pies like that and the little singles too. I don't like either. The sauce is to bland for me.

I'll take Totinos over Mama Rosa any day. ;)

I haven't had a Mama Rosa's pizza in years. I used to like the square deluxe pizzas. I am not sure if they even make them anymore. I know I never see them around here anyway.

Nice pics! Thanks for bringing back the memories  :)
