Things They Almost Invented: pre-sliced frozen pizza

I previously came up with the idea of pre-sliced frozen pizza. You can't cut a frozen pizza, but a whole frozen pizza is more than one person should eat in one sitting. And pizza loses a significant amount of yumminess when you reheat it. (And single-serving mini pizzas have too much crust for the amount of toppings/too little toppings for the amount of crust.)

Today I found something that can fulfill the same function: Dr. Oetker Ristorante Ultra Thin Crust pizza.

It isn't pre-sliced, but the crust is so thin I could easily snap it in two with my bare hands! It's not as precise as cutting it in half, but it's certainly a workable way to not have to heat up the whole thing.

If you're in the market for frozen thin-crust pizza but don't want to eat the whole thing or reheat the rest later, I recommend giving it a try.

To cut frozen pizza, first heat the knife blade. If you have a gas range, heat it until it's red hot. But don't use your best knife this way.

Another thing that works for me about 90% of the time (but with some risk of shattering) is using a very heavy, very sharp knife, and slicing very, very slowly.

We used to eat this all the time! I'm sorry I never suggested it. I didn't realize it might address your pizza problems.

(The only reason we don't eat it anymore is we're not eating frozen pizza.)
