Though I don't purchase any of these brands it's a bit surprising that they are being pulled. There were a few Stouffer's frozen things I used to buy back when I ate that kind of stuff but I haven't bought them for many years now.

Something I noticed though is this:

$1:
The company does not manufacture these products in Canada, so no manufacturing facilities in Canada will be affected.

Yet the picture of the pizza box shows "Proudly prepared in Canada". [huh]

The frozen pizza I buy is locally produced and I haven't bought frozen meals since I stopped working. But I have a question... WTF is 'premium water'?

Gluten free & fat free water? The Diet water didn't sell.
Or is it the water you pay $400 a year for your house and they pay 1c per million litres and sell for $3 a litre?

Won't miss their frozen pizza. Haven't been desperate enough to buy more than 1 a year

Welcome to the shadowy world of product packaging. 'Prepared in Canada' can mean the pizza is brought here frozen, and toppings are added here - or it is simply put in boxes here.

'Product of Canada' can mean it is built in Canada from parts manufactured elsewhere.

'Made in Canada from 100% Canadian sources' is the only one where everything is made from and assembled in Canada.

I'm like 90% sure on those.

I usually just buy a generic pizza, if they are on sale for $3 or less. I just have an air fryer, and it won't fit most frozen pizzas.

It's been quite a few years since we last bought any frozen pizza. We tried different brands/types and none were ever that good. I used to make my own but finding a good shell was challenging after I couldn't find a particular brand that I preferred and I'm too lazy to make it from scratch. :lol: We have a great local place to order from and they make them fresh. I know they do because it's very close to where I work and occasionally I've gone there on my break to get a slice (they always have a couple on the go) and have watched them build them from the crust up.

I keep a few in the freezer for those days when I come in late and don't want to take an hour to make something. Throw some olives, sundried tomato, a few capers and candied onion (always in the fridge), and some cheeze, and it makes a quick cheap meal.

Not gourmet, but fixes the tummy rumbles. And I won't pay more than $3 for one. :)

Sorry, only sold in Quebec and in a Toronto Walmart. It's the best frozen pizza I've ever had.

If we buy frozen pizza, we buy the Dr. Oetker ones when they go on sale - typically cheese or something plain, then add extra toppings and cheese to make them better than just a frozen pizza.

Typically though, it's easier to buy a pizza kit from Costco and freeze the dough. Then when you want a pizza, you pull one out, top it with whatever you want and bake at 450 for 15 minutes. In an ideal world, I'd make my own pizza dough, but I never have enough time for that except maybe on the weekend.

I sometimes spend a weekend making prep dishes to make cooking easier. Things like a vegetable/mushroom stock that I can then use for Ramen, or things like pickled onions that you can throw on a cheese sandwich or pizza. And sometimes I make pizza dough, or bread dough, throw it into balls and freeze it. Put it in the fridge the night before, easy meal the next day.

That's why I won't pay more than $3 for frozen. I know I can knock a few off for less than that, if I get off my ass.

I've always "jazzed up" frozen pizza with toppings from home. Even takeout pizzas... I have my own stock of anchovies at home as nobody even offers them as a topping choice.
Nobody like them so we don't offer them
Well fuck you, you wouldn't know a pizza from a cow pie.

The wife and I would sometimes hit the deli in Prince George and make pizzas from scratch, just like my Italian grandma used to, Delicious.... but $60 ea...
