Dough powder, cheese powder, oily bright orange sauce in a can--delicious! Only in the very loosest interpretation is this stuff pizza. Still available, and can't beat the 80s nostalgia price of .50!

I beg to differ. This is my favorite kind of pizza. The sauce makes it. I only hope it never leaves the shelves.

It may not have been the best pizza, but was likable. Maybe, I enjoyed it for bringing everyone together. The entire family would eat it with no complaints. Frozen pizza's seemed less popular, with varying opinions on taste, texture, and toppings!

It was quite good, and you can still buy it cheap ($3.49, enough to make two pizzas). You need to buy some real cheese topping on the side to make them really good though. Still, a lot cheaper than going out to eat.

I've had this myself and unless I'm doing something hideously wrong when I make the "pizza" it doesn't turn out as good as I would hope. The crust is all messy and when it comes out of the oven it hardly resembles a pizza. I'd rather just buy the ready made crust, sauce and cheese because that always works out better.

My mom used to make this every Sunday night - one "cheese" only and the other had sliced hot dogs on it. We ate it while we watched the Wonderful World of Disney. (Yikes - could that have been the 70s?)

I'm not sure if my mom ever made this for us (maybe once). I always wanted to try it - I was a Chef Boyardee kid, for sure. Now I feel like getting the kit and seeing if I remember anything...

I recently made one for the first time. I hate chef sauce and whats with the mini pack of cheese powder? I dumped a bag of mozarella on it and still couldent make it edable.

I remember my mother scouting every store within a 50 mile radius trying to find one of these kits about 10 years ago- for the sauce alone. For months that box sat in our cupboard with the crust mix, and no sauce. Im glad to see that they are alive and well though!

Just made one of these 2 weeks ago. I always add sausage, green peppers, onion,and mozerella cheese to mine. Sometimes, I make cheese burger pizza with it too. The pizza kit ROCKS!!!!

Love this!!! Grew up on it and now fix it all the time. Ok, I am dating myself, but as a kid, use to watch reruns of the Andy Griffith show and the Odd Couple while eating the pizza!!

Love these! My mom couldn't cook, so this is my childhood comfort food. We still have them back home in IL, but I haven't checked here in Southern CA.

They still make these, I live in GA and they are in every grocery store.

I have to say I am a Chef boyardee pizza fanatic! I've been eating them ever since I was about 5 years old. My mom would make them on Friday nites, I'm from Cleveland Ohio and there used to be these horror movie show hosts called Hoolihan and Big Chuck and also The Ghoul. We would watch these terrible movies and eat the pizza. I still make them to this day, they are the best!!! You can also buy the sauce in cans, it is the same as what you get in the kits, I always add more sauce. When I got married we recieved 4 double pizza kits as a gift, just goes to show you how much I love these things.

contd 13x9 glass pan (like the kind you use for lasagna) then she would put the sauce and powder cheese on top and some more reg mozz cheese and hamburger meat and it was so freakin good. that sauce and the powder cheese is why its soooo remarkable. im gonna go make it right now and its 4 in the morning.

I've always loved these, but nowadays there isn't enough sauce in them to adequately cover the crust, which makes them awful.

I am SO over Chef Boyardee Pizza Maker. The sauce doesn't keep very long. It grows mold and smells nasty over time. Plus, the crust is pretty awful.

I ate the sausage pizzas in the 70's and still eat the pepperoni pizzas. Love them! I would almost give my right arm for one of the sausage kits!

The Sausage kit was the best! Does anyone know exactly when they stopped selling it. It was Dad and my favorite, but now Mom can't remember it and swears they never made a Sausage. I've been searching for some history of it to prove it to her. I remember when I was a kid there were only two kinds, Cheese or Sausage. Then later they came out with the Pepperoni kit and the Sausage was phased out, much to our dismay. It was so much better!

The pizza kits have been around since about 1955. A small packet of parsley also came with. Those with sausage had the meat in the sauce can. We had these quite often in the late sixties, because frozen pizza was sparse at stores, and going out for pizza was more expensive. Chef Boy At Dee did sell frozen pizzas from 1962 to 1965, but sales were lackluster.

From the prime time TV vault, an earlier Chef Boiardi Pizza kit spot featuring a post-nuclear family of four. Sausage and plain cheese boxes shown. Slogan at the time was, "Meal In a Minute the Chef's Way." Actually, it took 20 minutes to make one from scratch, including crust prep. Commercial aired on "Untouchables" over ABC (5/14/63). Jiffy Pop, Anacin, Dristan, Goodyear and Dodge were other sponsors. Also, Ad Council PSA for Radio Free Europe.

Made one last night! Still delicious, though I think they've changed the sauce. It could be that I've forgotten what it tasted like (hadn't had one in close to 20 years). My husband had never had Chef Boyardee pizza. He liked it. We'll buy more soon!
