This was my favorite thing as a teen. It was a pocket, round flour crust with pizza filling YUMMY ! All you did was pop it in the toaster and when it popped up, it was done. I remember the inside being cold sometimes so I would have to throw it back in the toaster.. Sooo Good !

I too would poke my finger in the middle of them and re-toast them, and, most important, let them sit for a while before eating them or you'd burn the roof of your mouth! Buitoni Toaster Pizzas were the best!

I remember these from the early 70's. They were GREAT! After my toaster finished with them I put them in the microwave so the center would get hot. I'd then let them "sit" awhile so I wouldn't burn the roof of my mouth (too badly). I forgot about them until the early 90's but by then Buitoni had discontinued them. I would love to see them available again but according to Buitoni they won't be. Darn shame, in my opinion.

i loved them with a pizza-passion! from time to time I think about them again and wish they would magically re-appear in my store. after looking on-line (this is the first time that occured to me) I found there is a whole sub-culture of toaster pizza fans out there. Enough, you would think, for Buitoni to bring them back. I have experimented over the years with trying to replicate them, using fresh dough (no good- too much like a calzone) or Pita pocket bread (not bad, but not quite) Buitoni- BRING THEM BACK!!!

Loved those pizzas, lived on them. I look for them everytime I'm in a new grocery store. They should definately bring them back. I remember taking off one end with a fork then squeezing out the cheesy goodness through the hole and eating it then eating the shell. mmmmmm, so good.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, and even thou I had some of the best pizza parlors in my neighborhood, the pop up pizzas were awesome to me. They are part of my childhood and I am very nostalgic for them. We should start a campaign to write to Buitoni to bring them back. Bring them back with the same recipe. Sometimes companies bring a product back and it taste nothing like the original. I don't eat hot pockets or anything like that. It was a unique product and was a treat for us when my siblings and I were kids. Bring them back!!!!!

One of my all time favorites. Used to eat 3-4 boxes at a time. Please bring them back!!
sophia - September 28, 2012 - Report this comment
I used to eat them when I visited my Aunt Josie's house. They were delicious and yes, you usually had to put them back in the toaster, as the cheese wouldn't fully heat the first time. And I don't remember microwaves being popular at that time, so we couldn't use them to eat these. I wish they did come back, me watching the portions I eat, one of those were satifying enough not to indulge in too many pizza slices!

I wrote Buitoni an email about bringing the toaster pizzas back. I think everyone should write them an email and maybe the will bring them back!

Yes, yankees, I loved them, too. Yes, I think the "Discription Person" at the very top of this page and Jack from April 11, 2010 are correct! I, too, believe these treats were around in the early 1970's. A very big deal since not many folks had mircowaves. Therefore, Toaster Pizzas were the pre-curser to the "modern day" mircrowave foods that have hot stuff inside! And there person who just posted two days ago under "yankees" should check out the Reggie Candy Bar" page. And, like, nicole, I too, will write Buitoni. Sophia also brings up a good that you had to often had to reheat them in the toaster. But you know what ... they were so good, that only made the experience of eating them more fun!

I loved these too!! So unique...some salt...heaven!! Ate them all through the 1970's and 1980's. I have looked for them for years (now living in the south) and have asked supermarket managers to order them, now I know why they couldn't find them!I didn't know they stopped making them! I wish they would bring them back also.

My mother worked at ShopRite in NY. She would bring them home and I would ATTACK them! My cousins and I had the cooking down to perfection. Toaster...pop... poke a hole in the center and toaster again. I would split them in half at the seam and have two treats. Lava hot on the edges and slightly frozen in the center... PERFECTION. I want them back too!

I absolutely love this toaster pizza I remember my mother used to buy it like six boxes at a time and between me my brothers that my sister they would be gone in a day they were the best ever I'm 51 now and I still remember how good they taste and if I could find a way to get them I would buy them by the case again they are the best and I want them back!!!!!!

This was one of my favorite snacks when I got home from school from around 1967-1970. I wish they would bring it back. Like others said, the middle was often longer to heat up and the rest could get so hot one could burn their tongue. However, that didn't stop me.

I miss them sooo much! My mother would buy boxes of them and I swear me and my brothers would eat them all in like two days my mother used to get so pissed! I wish they would bring them back they were the best no other frozen pizza ever tasted that good again!
Janine - November 03, 2016 - Report this comment
This was my all time favorite. I couldn't wait to come home from school to pop an Instant Pizza into the toaster. It was the perfect snack food and you didn't need Mom's help. It was simple and delicious - There were always 2 boxes in our freezer. Hot Pockets don't come close to a Buitoni's Instant Pizza. Please bring them back. Please bring them back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They actually were not bad and what they had was the fact that they heated-up in the toaster in about 2 minutes ! They were a good fast snack or easy lunch. I enjoyed them as a child in the 1960's, long before microwaves !
Joey - November 01, 2017 - Report this comment
These were awesome! I especially remember eating these as a snack on weekends while watching things on TV like ABC's Wide World of Sports and NBC's Saturday Baseball Game of the Week. I was always too impatient as a kid to heat these up properly in the toaster on low or "Light", so I'd invariably crank it up to "Dark" (or maybe it was "Darkest")and end up burning them around the edges while they still be partially frozen in the center. I can count the number of times I burned the roof of my mouth and my tongue on these things. I loved them!

These little round Pizzas were made by Buitoni and the closest taste I found to them was a pizza puff. I just crave Toasterions.
Lisa - March 29, 2020 - Report this comment
Omg!! My best friend and I LOVED these and pretty much ate them EVERYDAY! Great after school snack, always burned our tongues and the roofs of our mouths because we just couldn’t wait long enough for them to cool off! I always thought they were by Thomas’ (the english muffin company.). In fact, both my mom who used to buy them and my best friend both say they were made by Thomas’ Maybe they were made by many manufacturers. But please bring those back! Just another reason I wish more than anything to go back to those good old days. We had it so good then!!

used to eat them every Friday for lunch. Im sorry there are many generations that won't experience how good those toaster piazza were. its a shame the company won't bring them back. Shame on Buitoni !!

WOW! I cannot believe it has been almost eleven years since I posted here (April 11, 2010). It also has been almost a year since the last post here by John C. It is really sad Buitoni will not bring them back but I guess they believe it will not sell good enough for them to make money on them.
