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!!

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 WONDER IF THE BUITONI COMPANY WOULD BE WILLING TO SELL THE RIGHTS TO PRODUCE THE TOASTER PIZZAS. THEY ARE NOT USING THE FORMULA ANYMORE. IT WAS A GREAT PRODUCT.

Definitely more of a 70's food
Debbie - May 28, 2014 - Report this comment
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.
