Just out of curiosity...what's the best brand out there?
At present, I typically get Digiornos or Digiornos deluxe, though I've been tempted to try Freschetta before too.
Also, am I the only one here who adds toppings? I typically dice a lot of green and red bell pepper to add to the mix, as well as a liberal amount of actual pepper sprinkled all over. I've tried putting ham on as well, and that wasn't too bad either.
My favorite frozen pizza brand is Tombstone. The crust is crisp like a cracker, which I really like for some reason
You have observed something very significant.
You cannot have good pizza if the crust is not good. No matter how good the sauce and cheese and toppings are, if the crust is not good, it will ruin the experience.
There's a pizza buffet chain called CiCi's Pizza in various cities in the US. I tried one once in the 1990s and tried one a thousand miles away two years ago, and it was the same: the crusts of the pizzas tasted like old stale bread that had been sitting on top of the refrigerator too long. They seem to buy their crusts pre-made and put toppings on them and throw them in the oven. They also seem to be buying the frozen crusts from the lowest bidder.
Just so, when a pizza sits in the refrigerator and gets old and cold, what's the most disturbing, wrong thing about it when you try to eat it cold the next day? The crust usually has hardened and turned into bread-flavored concrete. If you microwave it, and the crust softens, it will be edible again.
Frozen Pizza's taste HORRIBLE.
The cheese is usually god-awful, the sauce is always overloaded, and the crust always sucks. Pizza Shops have amazing pizza's, which I always recommend. Domino's and Papa John's taste amazing, and of course if your a business hating faggot, you can always try some local stores, local pizza shops always taste good.
Also: Pizza is incredibly easy to make from scratch, if your THAT much of a cooking fag. I love homemade pizza's, but I'm not going to be one of those guys who hates eating out at places when you can make shit at home.
Chicago Town, motherfuckers.
I like Goodfellas deep pan/crust best. Never liked the thin stuff, or those godawful blocks 'o tomato toppings.
Family pizza restaurants are the best
I like to microwave them enough to roll them up into a pizzarito and then bake them crispy and cut them into little round slices... It's one of the nicest ways I've found of making something crappy into something appetizing.
If I'm all by myself, though, I just roll it up and eat it, even if it's semi-cold in the middle still.
Seconding this guy.
Though, it's entirely possible he was me.
Don't know much about frozen pizzas. The only pizza I ever eat now is from a small neighborhood place that makes the best ones in the whole city. >>19 is right; pizza isn't worth eating unless you get it from a really good local place or you straight up make it from scratch.
The worst pizza I've ever had wasn't frozen, however. It is from Papa John's. There's too much cheese, the fucking pizza is chewy (pizza shouldn't be goddamn chewy) and I don't know what they put in that sauce, but every time I've ever eaten even one slice of Papa John's pizza I got the shits for the next hour at least. Fuck Papa John's, and fuck the idiot owner who appears on their commercials, because he's a goddamn liar.
I think a lot of the quality difference has to do with whether the people who work in the restaurant care about making a quality product. From any chain, from any local restaurant, you can get good pizza or bad pizza. If the managers are trying to save money by not throwing away ingredients that are going stale, if the cooks just don't care and just go through the motions, you will get bad pizza.
In different locations, in different cities, I have had good pizza from a Papa John's and bad pizza from a Papa Johns. I have had good pizza from a Little Caesar's and bad pizza from a Little Caesar's. I have had good pizza in small independent restaurants and bad pizza.
How about a thread about things you can add to/do with ramen for a little variety? Because if you're like me, you are le poor and survive on the local grocer's "10 Ramen Blocks for 4 Dollars" special...;_;
When I don't want the soup flavouring packet added, I usually just add in some mixed veggies and some scrambly egg, for example. I also have a friend who makes cold casseroles with hers and it's pretty good. What do you do?
My family is Hungarian and a common meal for us is Chicken Paprikash! Since my sister and I love it so much if we just want to have a cheap lunch we put sour cream and some paprika into our (chicken) ramen! So good!
Add soy sauce. Kikkoman only. And tiny diced/chopped onion.
and some some sweet pussy ((())) cat for u amricnos and some vegges and beef and soysause
i know it sounds weird but add basil leaf to chicken ramen X) so good :)
My favorites are thinly sliced leftover meats, sriracha, and drained with peanut butter for ghetto pad-thai
I make the ramen made as instructed on the package, then i add half a can of stewed tomatoes, garlic, cilantro. Bam.

I've always pronounced it jai-roh. My parents pronounce it jai-roh. I've never had a waiter or waitress point out that it was anything different when I've ordered one. A couple months ago I was talking about a gyro I had to an aquaintance and they had no idea what I was talking about. After I described it to them they said something like "Oh, you mean a gyro?", only they pronounced it sort of like 'year-oh' or 'euro'. What is the correct way to pronounce it? Are both ways acceptable, like tomato, or vase?
Coming from a Greek family that owns a Greek restaurant, I can assure you all that the correct pronunciation is like YI-roh.
gyro= "ghee-ree-yo" quickly
Raoh pwns them all, you fool!
It's "Jai-roh!" like "Gyroscope" ;)
from an american perspective, the g is silent the same as with the words gnome or gneiss, some historic relic left attached in the visual spelling, it can be difficult or even unwanted to change tradition.
Apparently it's supposed to be pronounced "yee-ro", but my Pittsburghian slang (I can thank my parents for that) causes me to pronounce it "jai-ro".

What Do something about the garbage floating on the ocean
Lived ghetto in Hawaii for awhile and we ate spam, rice, and eggs or Portuguese sausage, rice, and eggs sometimes twice a day. Cheapest meal you can get there. Rice, eggs over easy or sunny side up (runny yolks is key), "meat" of choice, soy sauce to flavor and blend with spatula. Add a dash of Tabasco if you're into that. It's good, I swear.
That sounds very Samoan. Fried eggs & rice with Spam, I mean. Not being "ghetto."
Rice with a salad on top is always good. Plenty of onions and garlic, then mix in soya sauce and olive oil. So good...
I'm poor and end up eating pasta, rice, noodles, ramen, and the like with nothing but soy sauce to fill up my belly and I am painfully aware that this is terribly bad for my body. I get my carbs but no nutrients.
So, what do you guys know can be diced up small and tossed into the pot for vegetables or fruits? I want to get some nutrition into me, but nothing too exotic, please. Thank you!
if you want nutrients, chop up some fruit and drink it with plain mineral water, things like grapefruit, melon, apple, cucumber and so on. berries like blueberries and strawberries are nice too. you don't have to do anything fancy with them if you don't like the taste.
peas and beans go well with rice, a little salt can take out the punch. if you like pasta, try incorporating carrots, broccoli, leek, onion, cauliflower, egg, beef and cheese together. just make up your own meals however you like. personally i like to slice up my veg quite thinly so they do not take long to cool.
for now i'd start mixing in peas with your noodles and maybe try cutting down on the sauce; substitute it with fresh tomato or passata.
