    I know...we all like to cook. But what about that day of the week where we just can't pull a recipe out of our...well..our hats. So whuddiya do?

    Frozen pizza time!

    I tend to stay to the pizzas that you actually have to bake in the oven. The ones that you nuke are awful.

    I have found two that are excellent, and geography might play a role in having it available.

    The first one is California Kitchen. Great frozen pizza, comes in 5 orsix toppings (I recommend the Thai topping).

    The next is Mystic Pizza. Yeap, this pizza is from the shop that was used a a location in "Mystic Pizza" the movie. Great, GREAT pizza! It cooked up terrific, had a real pizzeria taste, and the crust was flour powder-y (you know?) on the bottom.

    If you can find it, buy one and stash it for a non-cook night.

    Yup..Mystic Pizza is actually in, of all places Mystic Connecticut. If you haven't been to Mystic, is truly embodies the sea-faring by-gone days of American history. It's a little touristy now, but it still remains very historical.

    The pizza joint is legendary. The story goes that the writer, while on vacation, became so enamoured with the restuarant, thgat she chose to use is as the backdrop for her story.

    There is another Mystic Pizza near Cambridge, Mass. It's a funky little place nestled on a corner. I'm not sure if they are related.

    I like Freuschetta (sp?) supreme, with roasted veg's. The crust is very lite. I also like Digorno (sp?) , the sauce is a bit better, but the crust is heavier. But for cheap and dirty, I like Totinos. Not much to them, taste wise, but its nostalgia food.

    Totoinos pizza is what I usually eat and enjoy but lately running a close second is Red Barons 5 cheese and Garlic french bread pizza.

    Totino's is the ultimate pizza like product. Okay, so the average Totino's party pizza has only been within 30 yards of an actual pizza, but for $1.00 on sale and 8 minutes in the oven, you can't beat them.

    Palermo's Thin crust ain't bad, and after a night of drinking, Tombstone pizza tastes like gourmet cuisine.
