Rush-hour remedies

March 26, 1997|By Maria Hiaasen

What you get: The small pizza (12.75 ounces) serves 3. The regular size (29.25 ounces) serves 6.

Cost: $3.69 (small); $5.69 (regular)

Preparation time: About 20 minutes in the oven plus 5 minutes of standing time.

Review: Which is quicker, having a pizza delivered or popping a frozen pie into the oven? If you chose the latter but shy away from frozen pizza taste, you'll be surprised by the pizzeria-like flavor of Rising Crust Pizza. The crust really does bake crispy outside and tender inside. Plus, there's no scrambling through your wallet in search of cash for a tip. DiGiorno's four cheese pizza beat Tombstone's Oven Rising Crust three-cheese pizza in my family's taste test, thanks to the zesty, not sweet, sauce. Look out, pizza man. The DiGiorno pepperoni beat any delivered to my door lately.
