    Did anyone else make English Muffin pizzas? I am not English but these were popular in my house growing up.

    Yes. In my house, it was English Muffins topped with my mom's homemade (leftover) spaghetti sauce, cheese, and spices, and baked in the oven. Great stuff, brings back good memories.

    Not familiar with those two but I used to eat bagel bites, Tombstone, Totino's, and if times were especially rough, pepperoni pizza hot pockets. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Tombstone was the most frequent we had--- yuck

    Stouffers were the best. When CVS next to my apartment has them on sale for $2 (2 pack) I'll pick a pack or two up still

    +1 on making pizza bagels/muffins, takes 30 seconds longer then throwing in a frozen pizza and actually taste really good. I always throw them under the broiler to get them nice and crispy .. YUM!

    When I was a lad, if my parents weren't going to be home for dinner, my mom left us several boxes of Ellios and we were all set. I loved that cardboard when I was a kid. Now I prefer the more "gourmet" rising crust supreme pizzas you can get on sale for $4 each.

    As a child, my aunt worked at the Elios factory and would bring us boxes and boxes of the stuff. Loved at as a child and still eat as an adult from time to time.

    Ellios, duh. It was the only frozen pizza kids ate, at least in my area.

    I always had Totino's. My mom would buy them when they were on sale for 5 for $5. Wasn't the greatest frozen pizza but at $1 for a whole meal, you couldn't beat it.

    I think by the time I was sick and tired of pb&j and campbells soup, the frozen pizza market had grown a tad.

    I remember :

    totinos= ass
    tonys mini pizzas=okay

    and then the advent of digorno, which as far as frozen pizza goes is legit.

    I rarely took frozen pizza to school, we had 1$ a slice Pizza Hut pizza every Friday.

    Pizza seconds! We had a stouffers outlet near my house. We had french bread pizzas all the damn time. Not coincidentally, we also ate weird stouffers products like Welsh rarebit. French bread pizzas are the opposite of convenient--shit has to bake for like 40 minutes.

    Totino's pizza rolls were for the kids whose parents also bought them Pop Tarts and Coke. In my house, it was Acme-brand maple cinnamon toaster tarts and milk or frozen OJ. Those kids also got boboli. I LOVED staying for dinner at friends'.

    Ellio's as a kid, but California Pizza Kitchen as an adult. Garlic Chicken, FTW.

    I liked stouffers french bread till I tasted pizza that wasn't cooked on bread reminiscent of eating a cinder block.

    Thats stuff DESTROYED my mouth many many times.

    No idea WTF the other one is.


    Pizza Rolls and Red Baron Singles were mainstays of my early teenage years.
