Frozen pizza is cheap, easy and widely available – the perfect thing for an ultra-fast weeknight dinner, right? Maybe not. Consumerist has just posted a cautionary tale of how frozen pizzas can go wrong. The 3-for-$9 pizzas pictured above are not only oddly shaped (two are less than half the size that they should be), but “one of them [had] some mysterious weird red/black dark matter embedded into the pizza.”
The photo above gives you a pretty good argument for making your own pizza dough, and the photo below of a homemade pizza gives you a better one. Pizza, while it may be difficult to get absolutely perfect (witness the multi-year attempts of food writers to achieve perfection), is very easy to make, even if you are not experienced with yeast breads. Better still, the dough can hang around in the fridge for a couple of days before you use it, so it will be ready to go when you are. You can even freeze premade dough as long as you fully defrost it in the fridge before attempting to roll it out.
