I never dumpster dived for food, but I used to live in a community with a large population of privileged college students. When school let out for summer, dumpster diving was a local sport. I got some really nice tables and lamps that way.
When I was a kid we would go to Little Caesars on Tuesdays and the pizzas were like $3 or something crazy. We’d get like 15 and freeze them. There were a lot of us. We loved it. I know now that was probably disgusting. But you gotta do what you gotta do. And at the time we loved it.
Tried a Mama Cozzi pizza from Aldi and it was gross. I’ll buy Freschetta or DiGiorno when they’re on sale, but Dominos and Pizza Hut have great deals, like $5 for a pizza. DiGiorno sells here for almost $7.
If frozen is the choice, then it's only DiGiorno supreme rising crust for us. I add a thinly sliced tomato, pepper, onion, and mushrooms before placing into the oven. Once it comes out I add oregano and fresh shredded Parmesan cheese and place on a warmed plate with black olives. Must be accompanied with a craft beer.

I have only had frozen pizza probably less than 5 times in my life. I grew up in Chicago where I had access to the most AMAZING Pizza places Gino’s, Giordano’s, UNO’s & my Favorite Home Run Inn. Then moving to the Burbs, I lived 10 minutes from Home Run Inn. Now I’m in NW Indiana, I have UNO’s Pizza a Chicago Icon 5 minutes away and Giordano’s is 10 minutes away. Otherwise, I use Flatout pizza crust and I can whip up an Amazing pizza in less than 30 minutes. If I want one from home. I keep pizza sauce, Italian sausage, cheese, frozen tri colored peppers, and hot peppers on hand.
