Frozen pizza almost as good as real thing

Full story: Lowell Sun 21
Sure, it's convenient -- and cheaper than a pizzeria. But can frozen pizza truly satisfy anyone other than undiscriminating kids? In other words, you? Yes, according to Consumer Reports' latest taste test of 16 frozen cheese pies. Full Story

Something needs to be done about Americans eating so much pizza. It's junk food.

Have you tried "Brothers" (I believe that's the name?) just across the Chelms. line into lowell across the street from the McDonalds at Drum Hill.
Last time I was back about 10 years ago they were still there, a classic thick crust pizza in the Greek tradition.
Great hot grinders as well.

Anywhere you go it's still flour with tomatoes and cheese. Eaten so often during the week and at schools that it amounts to junk food. Makes people FAT!

You don't like Papa Gino's?
Well, Mr. Picky Pants, what's the best pizza you've ever had?
BTW. Market Basket has this new thin crust pizza..
It's a light German pizza for $3, Called Doeckters or something like that. My favorite is the veggie: which has little grape tomatoes on it.

I thought that was highlands pizza. I could be wrong. But their pizza isn't bad. I like brothers pizza but the one i had was in andover. As for frozen pizza digiorno isn't that bad.

Can anyone explain to me what the big deal is about Tony&Anns pizza? I had it a few weeks ago for the first time in my life.It's like having a bowl of cheese soup.

I was referring to the local pizzerias, not the chains. One odd thing I noticed right away when I moved here was that people raved about certain places, and I thought they were awful.

Good gawd.. what are you doing in Wilmington?
You may as well ski of ski-doo home now!
On local non-chain we found is "Parkside Roast Beef" up Mammoth Road on the right, a little way from the Boulevard, right next to that thrift shop.
Very light, good pizza, and the price is good too.
Someone mentioned "Tony & Ann's". From what I understand, you may as well slop tomato soup on dough.
People either love it or hate it.
I think I'd hate it.

Mangia Mangia in Billerica center for local is excellent.
If you want to go further out try Santarpia's on Rte.1 in Peabody. Caveat: there is a long wait.
Basically pizza can be healthy depending on what and how much you put on it. You shouldn't be eating much of any of the same thing all the time anyways. It's boring and you're missing out on all the variety of foods available to you could be having instead.

Lisa's Sweet Pizza from "Pizza Depot" in Dracut & Pepperill is WAY better than Tony & Ann's! Also, if you haven't tried DiGiorno from the Supermarket you need too, it is by far the best frozen pizza I've had yet!

With pizza prices going the way of gasoline prices, frozen pizzza is the best way to go.

i tried a new frozen pizza at Whole Foods, called Zanto, and get this its made by a Massachusetts company. The guys that make the pizzas were in the store giving out samples. Could not believe it, great bunch of guys and if you try the pizza you wont believe it came frozen.

I agree with the homemade. Get a pizza stone, some good dough and make it yourself at home. A lot of grocery stores are carrying different kinds of doughs, including multi-grain, whole wheat, white, spent grain (brewery) white, garlic and herb... Nothing better than a homemade za on a Friday night!

Other than that, Family Pizza in Dracut, and Espressos in both Nashua and Lowell. Different Espressos but both have amazing pies.
