Frozen pizza is something we are passionate about, and we believe it deserves to be treated right. Of course, you can enjoy your frozen pizza however you like, but there are a few things you should do and should not do when it comes to this delicious frozen delicacy.
Dogtown’s Do’s and Don’ts of Frozen Pizza
Here at Dogtown Pizza, we’ve put together a helpful list of the most important do’s and don’ts of frozen pizza: from cooking to eating, to reheating it, we’ve got you covered!
Do Eat It with Whatever Condiment You Want
At least half the point of eating frozen pizza is the dip you eat it with. Go ahead and dip your pizza in marinara, garlic butter, fancy mustard (you might get some weird looks, but you are living your best life), or ranch dressing, there are really no wrong answers when it comes to pizza dipping!
Do Cook It to Your Liking
If you like your pizza slightly burnt around the edges, go for it! If you prefer the dough to be just barely set and easy to fold, we’re not going to stop you. If you want the whole thing a little more than well done? The point is that we’re not going to tell you how to enjoy your frozen pizza: customizing the level of done-ness is part of what makes Dogtown Pizza so good!
Do Try It on the Grill
Forget winter, summer is coming, and we all know what that means; it’s time to stop using the oven! Just because you want to minimize oven use doesn’t mean have to say goodbye to your DTP frozen pizza favorites; throw that pizza on the grill and enjoy!
Do Let It Cool Down Before Eating
While some people believe you’re not really eating frozen pizza right unless you scald your mouth on lava-hot cheese and sauce straight out of the oven, we think those people are missing something important. If you burn your mouth, you won’t taste the pizza! That might be fine for lower quality frozen pizza but here at Dogtown we take pride in our local ingredients and crafted recipes, and we don’t want something we love so much ends up hurting you. Give it a few minutes to cool; we promise the wait is worth it.
The Don’ts of Frozen Pizza
Don’t Microwave Your Leftovers
Microwaved pizza is never very good, but Dogtown’s traditional St. Louis-style pizza featuring a crisp, cracker-thin crust is especially vulnerable. If you microwave it, you’ll end up with one soggy doggy. Luckily, there are better ways to reheat Dogtown pizza!
Don’t Let It Sit Out Overnight and Eat It the Next Day
Yes, many of us have done this, and we didn’t die—but we’re grown-ups now, and we understand that eating leftovers off the counter isn’t safe or healthy. Don’t risk it; it’s not worth it.
Don’t Shame Your Friends for What They Like on Their Pizza
Since we covered ranch dressing in the list above, we’re obviously talking about something even more divisive, pineapple! While there are no Dogtown pizzas with pineapple as a stock ingredient, many of our fans love adding pineapple to our Sweet BBQ Chicken pizza to put a new spin on the classic Hawaiian flavor. Sometimes in life, you have to agree to disagree—and if your friends are wrong about how pineapple definitely belongs on pizza, you don’t shame them for their wrong food choices, because they’re your friends and that’s what matters.
Don’t Forget to Buy Enough to Share
If you only remember one thing from this article, this is it. It’s better to have extra pizza leftover for breakfast than to have someone not get their fill of that crispy, cheesy, Dogtown Pizza goodness!
