Is Delissio stuffed crust pizza suppose to not rise but have flat,heavy,rubbery dough after baked?

I tried Delissio stuffed crust pepperoni pizza now for the second time and I noticed something weird about it. I baked it well done for 18 minutes at 450 degrees and the dough doesn't rise at all but stays very flat, heavy and rubbery. Is this the way the dough is suppose to turn out since it is not a rising crust dough? Their other non rising pizzas do not turn out this way, the crust is light, dry and flakey, but the stuffed crust dough is horrible, as if it doesnt rise at all, stays flat, very heavy, rubbery and raw-like but the pizza is baked well done. What could cause this or is this the way its supposed to be?

As soon as you wrote 'Delissio', I knew how this would end... (as it does for all frozen pizza).

Why buy Delissio when Domino's has 50% off?

Not all Delissio pizzas are rising crust so unless it says "rising crust" on the box...
Many people like delissio possibly because of the good value, especially the double package.
I never liked the crust.
Best crust I've found for a frozen pizza has been Dr Oetkers Panabello.
Also remember to have a hot preheated oven as the rising starts from the beginning.
Hotter the oven the better.

While frozen pizza is generally a taboo subject, I have to say my favorite brand is Dr Oetker Ristorante pizza - particularly the spinach one.

A little more cheese in the stuffed crust please Delissio! Thanks!
I noticed also, it's important to read the directions carefully. The heating instructions change from box to box.
Some require 450 degrees while others only require 400 degrees.

I put extra mozzarella on it and bake for 30 minutes. This is for the Canadian/Deluxe ones though which call for 400 degrees. Are you sure you gave it long enough?

My usual is Casa di Mama and I have to say, the Stuffed Crust is a much denser pizza.

BTW, there is a $1 printable coupon available here: http://www.smartsource.ca/smartsource2/ ... cale=en_CA

With all the constant deals from Dominos, Pizza Hut, etc, I would suggest people are better off just ordering rather than supermarket pizza. It not only tastes better but after 50% off, it probably costs similar or not much more.

$3.99-$4.49 for a Delissio pizza. $5.99 for Delissio stuffed crust. (frozen pizza is NOT taxable)

50% off $21.77 (including tax) = almost $11 for the Domino's pizza.

Savings?

I agree, I have been getting the stuffed crust for 2/$10 less $1 coupon and a couple times I got 1,000 PCO pts per pizza. You just have to cook it properly.

I'll pay the $5 doesn't taste like the box it came in tax.

Listen there are 6 pizza places <4 minute drive from here and I still prefer to make grocery store pizza at home. I just don't see the value in it when you can fix every kind of boxed pizza with extra cheese. (I add about $1 worth.)

If you are consistently getting a bad crust even though you have tried a longer baking time, the issue may be your pan. If you bought some cheapass coated steel pan at Walmart, it's not heat conductive enough for the relatively short time that it is in the oven to bake a crust properly. I'd try a pizza screen like this jobby then: https://www.amazon.ca/Winco-Winware-12- ... way&sr=8-4 with the caveat, don't do a regular Delissio on it because their crusts are perforated and all the hot fat that comes out of the cheese drips through = smoke if not fire.

& when was the last time you ate Delissio?
It does not taste like the box it came in and it sure does not have tons of grease either.
(I mean it actually tastes like pizza. I have never actually put cardboard in my mouth! Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes)

Yes, especially when on sale for $2.47!
