I don't think the regular retail on frozen pizzas matters all that much. In another 4 weeks, when they go on sale another 3x the sale ads will show how you're "saving" more.

Let the regular retail customers suckers subsidize the sale price. Maybe that's what's going on, and that's how grocery stores can afford to do sales on frozen pizza.
Raise the regular retail, but keep the $3.99-$4.99 sale price. (it won't be the sale price every week...they'll probably just rotate between pizza brands, lol)

Shopper's drug mart regular retail for frozen pizza has been $8.99 forever...maybe it's just their way to make you think you're getting a deal when you see a $4,99 sale price
(even though Basics will have the same pizza on sale for $3.99)

$6.99 does surprise me though. I thought all grocery stores (etc) were charging a regular retail of $7.99 when the pizza is not on sale.
The thought I do ponder is that maybe $3.99 is all they ever wanted in the first place, but they want us all to believe we are getting a great deal...(??)
I like to think of shoppers drug mart as a glorified convienence store. They have mostly a little bit of everything... they can fill your prescriptions. & many locations open till mid night or 24 hrs. Even the ones open till 11pm are pretty good for most people.
So i expect high prices... i only to shoppers for convienence. I won't consciously go shopping there.

You didn't visit food 4 less? Or whatever their deep discount store is called there?
No - went to Walmart.

Frozen pizzas are all $5-8 USD. Pricey!

Delissio and Pizzeria still go on sale for $4.49 every 4-6 weeks in the GTA. I have noticed that they now have less pepperoni and meat per pizza though.

As mentioned earlier in this thread, the size has gone down...if the circumference (circle) of the pizza itself has not changed, maybe less toppings is how they conclude less pizza per box.

I think cheese is the most expensive ingredient when I was making homemade. They tastes great though as you said bur that could be the hubris Orr than my culinary skills. I hate hoe people just down vote you for saying frozen tastes like cardboard. There is nothing frozen that comes close to fresh kneed dough. my problem is I don't make enough frequent enough and the yeast expires. Can you use the. Past expirey?

That's what they are here too, regular retail @ Walmart, but you can price match a flyer sale from a place close by.
The American equivalent to Delissio in the States is Digiorno. (notice how they're also both made by Nestle!)

Yes - same price here in Canadian dollars so 30% less.

It was Digiorno in Canada too when it launched but they changed the name to a much stupider sounding Delissio.
I wonder why they changed.

I would never use it past expirty date.
Those frozen pizzas have very little cheese on them, and very little toppings these days. It beats the whole point if u gotta add cheese on your own to make it better/good, cuz each cheese pack is like 5-6 bucks or so

I would. Expiry is only for quality assurance.
There's no food safety issue unless the product has been stored improperly.

Yep. So easy to make at home. Frozen tastes like cardboard.
