For many aeons, frozen pizza has been mostly disgusting, a form of cuisine that has seen little innovation despite the rapid technological advancement of society and the global love for pizza. After all, Brooklyn-based Table 87 (“Home of the Coal Oven Slice”) has chopped frozen pizza in a way that caters to those who may live alone, don’t cook, don’t order, want good pizza and don’t want a whole make frozen pizza for yourself. (I am that person.)
Each Table 87 frozen pizza slice is sold individually and is a large New York style slice that is bigger than my normal size head. Currently, Margherita is the only variety available in slice form. Pepperoni, mushrooms with white truffle oil and ham, and margherita are options in the frozen whole cake variety.
According to Thomas Cucco, the owner of Table 87 who appeared on an episode of Shark Tank in 2015, his frozen pizza is superior to others because it is cooked for two minutes and then flash frozen. Impressed, the Haie entered a bidding war; Cucco received a $ 250,000 investment from Lori Greiner after negotiating a 19% takeover of the business.
After about 10 minutes in the oven, a frozen pizza slice from Table 87 is not an entirely fresh (or fresh) dollar piece. It’s something in itself that I think is a formidable rival to a street piece and superior to a frozen Roberta pizza, which I always find unsettlingly chewy and dry. No, this is a slice of panache – a plate is necessary to catch a sloppy mozzarella or no-frills tomato sauce. It’s also the perfect thing to eat when you’re extremely hungry and want something hot that isn’t toast.
A few precautions: the cooking time on the package is eight minutes, but I find 10 more satisfactory, and of course that doesn’t include the time it takes your oven to preheat. Plus, each slice costs $ 5 (prices are higher when you buy online, but the pizza arrives quickly in a bed of dry ice). Five dollars for a piece of frozen pizza? Yes I know. However, when you factor in the time it takes to build and the satisfaction and satisfaction that comes with it, I estimate the cost to be around $ 2 per slice. In New York prices this is basically free.
