We were doing some out-of-town shopping over the weekend and came across Lebby's in a store in Lodi, WI.  We bought a sausage pizza and cooked it for lunch, and it was actually pretty good.
Have you ever tried Pep's frozen pizza?  It is made by the guys who created the original Tombstone pizza in Medford, WI before they sold out to Kraft foods and it turned into crap.
I believe we've had it a couple of times; it seems to be one of those brands that turns up sporadically in the stores around here.  Maybe I'll pick one up the next time I see them.  One thing I've noticed about the smaller companies is that their pizzas don't seem to go on sale nearly as often as the major brands.

How does someone in Shawnee, KS know about pizza from Medford, WI?

My family lived in New Berlin, WI for 4 years.  I can remember when Tombstone first hit the stores.  Back then, it overtook every other product out there in the grocery stores.

Tombstone was developed by two bar owners in Medford, WI. They were trying to think of a name and there just happened to be a cemetery across the street. My favorite frozen pizza (and I eat very little) is Bellatoria. Great thin crust and IMHO the best of the bunch.

I've never met the frozen pie that I can be friends with or look in the eye and call it pizza. Sorry,my Italian heritage won' allow it! Seriously, I guess a real pizzeria tasting pizza just won't freeze. Here in Jersey pizza country, I never
have to stoop to the frozen variety!!

We discovered that most Texans idea of a good pizza was Chucky Cheese. Since many of the folks over on the chili  were recently extolling the virtures of putting everything from poultry to BEANS in our national dish.

I've had Pep's before and it's pretty good, but it doesn't seem to be a regular staple of the stores I usually shop.

I just discovered Screamin' Sicilian Boss Hogg pizza at my local Wegman's and I have to say that it's by far the best frozen pizza I've ever tasted. I've never been able to find a frozen sausage pizza with just sausage until I came across this one.
Here's the website (Roadfood won't let me post the link): www. screaminsicilian.com/pizzas

I found Screamin' Sicilian pizzas here a few weeks back but didn't try one as they were at the upper end of the price scale ($8-ish).  I looked closely at the box and was surprised to see that only the website was listed, so I couldn't get an idea of where it was from.

I agree that it is expensive ($7.99 for me) for a frozen pizza, but this is definitely a case of getting what you pay for.

Reviews seem promising...It is made by Palermo Villa, the frozen pizza manufacturer in Milwaukee. Saw a unique article about a guy using 2 SS pizzas and a four pound burger patty to make a giant burger w/ the inverted pizzas as the bun...looked tasty, and only took him 4 days to eat. :)

No frozen pizza is a good pizza. Around here you can get a REAL pizza from a pizzeria for $8-10. I'll put that $8 dollars for that commercial frozen brick towards the real thing!!!!(Our local pizzeria has a daily special of 2 large plain pies for $16.95...and they are great!!Most people here in the Northeast aren't far from the real thing...and good pizzerias are opening up  all over the country...look ,and you may not need that frozen job.And while I don't like a Costco pizza,too sweet, and frozen dough.....at $9, it's better(and much larger) than any frozen pie....and Costcos are all over the place....just my thoughts...and my Italian blood speaking!

There's one edible frozen pizza we've found...Lottza Mottza.  Don't know if it's entirely regional to Wisconsin or not.  Other than that, I like, (but my family doesn't), Connie's pizza...from Chicago.

The Kroger near me started carrying Home Run Inn frozen pizzas this summer.  I think they are by far the best frozen pizza I've ever had.  The crust actually has flavor and the toppings are plentiful as well.  I would take it over anything from a chain any day.

Serious Eats' take on frozen pizza is what works for me:
 
Adam Kuban
If you're sacrificing crust quality for convenience, why not go for broke? To me, all those "fancy" frozen pizzas are bland. They think they've taken real "pizza" and frozen it. They make what I call "Pizza That Is Frozen" and not "FROZEN PIZZA." Frozen Pizza revels in its crappiness. It amps up the flavor with an ingredients list of junk you probably don't want to look too closely at. It's "pizza" in the same way a Big Mac is a "hamburger" or Taco Bell is a "taco." If you suspend your disbelief, I believe you can thoroughly enjoy it for what it is.



This puts my taste in frozen pizza between the low end and the middle - so, Totino's/Jeno's up through Tombstone/Red Baron, inclusive.

We tried the SS Boss Hogg on Sunday night and liked the flavor, crust, and generous amount of sausage ("boulders of sausage", the box states).  For a higher-end frozen pizza it works for me, so hopefully it'll occasionally be on sale.
