Here are some tips to upgrade frozen pizza you should try!

Add different kinds of cheese

Almost everyone loves eating pizza. Who wouldn’t? There are pizzas that match every taste preference. For example, there are pizzas that are topped with veggies, which is perfect for health-conscious people. There are also pizzas with oozing cheese for those who really need comfort food. 

Of course, many people would agree that out of all ingredients that can be a pizza topping, cheese is the best. Nothing quite matches the salty, gooey melted cheese experience that pizza offers. So, upgrade your frozen pizza by adding more cheese, different kinds of cheese!

This is the most obvious one: add more cheese. Or rather, add better cheese. Throw in some of your favorite cheeses like ​​mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, parmesan, goat cheese, gruyere, or ricotta to get that stringy texture and mouth-watering flavor like no other.  

Tip: For melting cheeses like mozzarella, cheddar, gruyere, and provolone, it would be best to layer these on top of the frozen pizza before baking or heating. 

Top it with more chicken

If you happen to still have leftover chicken in your fridge, try using that as a topping for your frozen pizza. Chicken is delicious on its own and when used as a pizza topping, it becomes even more flavorful.  

For many people, frozen pizza is often considered an unhealthy food as well, and its toppings are typically the ones to blame. Topping your frozen pizza with chicken is an exception. Chicken is low in saturated fat and an excellent source of protein, omega 6 fatty acids, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, iron, copper, zinc, and more. 

If you need more healthy ingredients for your plain cheese frozen pizza, other leftover proteins like seafood and lean beef will work, too. Just make sure to slice these thinly.  

Add more vegetables

Add more vegetables

Adding more fresh vegetables to your frozen pizza can instantly make it taste better. This is also a sneaky way to get your little ones to eat their veggies. Some of the veggies that go well with pizza include mushrooms, bell pepper, olives, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, kale, and spinach. 

Want to add a bit of crunch to your dish? Slice your vegetables and toss them on your pizza just before going into the oven. You can also sauté your vegetables to soften them. Leafy greens like kale and spinach should be sautéed first.    

Heat it up more

Once in a while, you can ignore the heating instruction on the back of your frozen pizza pack and crank up the heat a bit more. You can match the heat of a brick oven, which is about 500 degrees for an ultra-crispy crust. Just be sure to be on the lookout because higher heat means the pizza will cook faster. The last thing you would want to happen is to burn your pizza. 

Include more spices

Adding a handful of spices can add more flavor that is missing from many frozen pizzas. Chop up some basil, oregano, chives, thyme, paprika, or garlic powder and sprinkle these on before serving the pizza. You can also blend all these spices by drizzling olive oil on top of the pizza. 

Try Filipino-style pizza

Us, Filipinos, absolutely love eating pizza as well. This is why you’ll find plenty of pizza restaurants in malls and just about anywhere else. But if you’re lazy or don’t have time to go out to munch on pizza, you can always stock up on frozen pizza. And if you want to upgrade your frozen pizza experience, you’d be glad to know that Filipinos are blessed with various flavorful ingredients that can be used as toppings. Topped with longganisa, tapa, corned beef, tinapa, tocino, or salted egg, a deliciously crispy, Filipino-style pizza will certainly make you want to eat more slices after just one yummy slice!
