I think if you throw 150g good shredded pizza mozzarella like Mozzarellisimo on a frozen rising crust pizza, it's pretty indistinguishable from take-out.

I like the Dr. Oetker Casa di Mama rising crust or Ristorante thin crust at $2.99...these guys have a lot of coupons too so I haven't paid more than $1.99 for a pizza for over a year...bulk shredded mozz from the freezer adds $1.50...cheaper, faster, way more convenient, and I don't miss delivery pizza.

Get fresh at Pizza Pizza walk in for 5.99 medium
That's plus tax. The frozen pizzas are cheaper (on sale) and have no tax.

$5 at our local Pizza Pizza but yes - add 13% tax also.

Personally I prefer a number of frozen pizzas to the basic medium pepperoni that you get for $5-6.

Delissio Vintage Pizzeria is my go-to. Satisfies my pizza cravings most of the time, and reduces ordering of pizzas to much lower frequency (something like once every two months)

$2.99 and $2.97 for Rustico and Delissio at Metro and Food Basics this week. Dr. O and Guiseppe advertised at $4.44 at Superstore but they were $3.33 in-store yesterday.

Price goes up each year on everything except salary. Smiling Face With Open Mouth
What makes this most infuriating, the price of food at cost before retail has been going DOWN by double digits in some cases in the past year or so. We never see the lower cost, but heaven forbid the Canadian dollar downticks by .0000000003356 of a cent vs the USD and the retailers will use it as an excuse to raise prices citing the CAD dollar weakness.

Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way through.

I know eh. Costco is probably the only exception. I've seen them LOWER their prices when the CAD was soaring.

Why would anyone pay $6.99 for frozen pizza, then the cost of heating up oven etc. its cheaper to go to a pizza store and get one...

Frozen pizzas taste like cardboard! Nothing like hot fresh pizza!

I don't find that the crust tastes like cardboard. It just depends on brand and how it's cooked.
Also, soft crust vs a not so soft crust...cook the pizza too long (not burnt, but maybe brown/dark brown-ish) and the crust is ruined. (too chewy)

I NEVER pay more than $4.99 (and that was a while ago)
I often pay $3.99-$4.49 and enjoy no tax because there is no tax on a frozen pizza.
The hydro bill doesn't reflect all that much difference. (In Toronto)
