Short Reading Roundup and Pizza Poll

Here’s a few things that I highly recommend you check out. I’m currently biding my time waiting for the Drunken Noodle to open. I’m hearing rumblings, but have not heard that it’s actually open yet. It’s open now.

In the meantime, WDAZ anchor Molly Thorvilson has a great post to read at her blog “Blogging Molly,” about the newly open Fuji Japanese Steakhouse and Seafood on Washington St. From the pictures she took, I can already tell I’ll love the place. I’ve heard only good things so far and the parking lot was packed full on Wednesday night.

Ok. Enough of the linkage.

What I really want to know from you is your favorite frozen pizza. What once was nowhere near quality, you can now find a pretty dang good pie in the freezer isle. There is a huge selection of higher-end pizzas that cost a pretty penny, but what can you do when you need the fix of cheese and crust and nobody’s delivering? You buy frozen.

Green Mill has a line of their pizzas in frozen form. Freschetta I’ve found to be good. But one brand, Pizza Corner,  stands out for me because of their high quality ingredients and its regional history. It started in Valley City in 1977 and has bloomed to be a full service pizza supplier in the upper Midwest.

What I had the other day was their four cheese variety. It comes out bubbling with tons of orange and white cheese. The different cheese flavors combine to make gooey cheesy perfection.

I used to pick one up more often than I should have at a nearby gas station. They’re pretty cheap and always good.

They come vacuum-packed to seal in flavor and make the shelf life a bit longer.

What you absolutely have to try is their Chicken Alfredo pizza. It comes with Alfredo sauce, chicken, cheese and some red pepper. It’s got the perfect amount of garlic to offset the creamy sauce. It’s highly recommended.

What do you buy for frozen pizza? Or do you wholeheartedly avoid it?
