Ellio's Cheese Pizza

My favorite food in the entire world and I kid you not is Ellio’s Pizza. I grew up eating Ellio’s at my house and at my friend’s house. I can still remember my friend’s mother making Ellio’s for us and splitting up the slices between the two of us. Since Ellio’s comes in an easy to break off 3 piece design, it was simple to share. Her mom always put it in the oven and it tasted delicious. When I would make it at home by myself, I would just pop it in the microwave oven but it never tasted the same. Mine always came out wet and soggy, while my friend’s mom would always make hers nice and crispy.

When I got married and had my son, I still continued the tradition of making Ellio’s pizza for the family. Just until recently, I finally started cooking the Ellio’s in the conventional oven. It seems as though my son prefers it in the oven than the microwave too. You can buy the microwavable Ellio’s now but even that doesn’t come out as good as the regular Ellio’s made in the oven. My son likes when I make him the Ellio’s and some French fries. To him that is the perfect meal. To me it is a simple meal.

How to Cook:

Toaster Oven:
PREHEAT TO 425°F. TO ENJOY A CRISPY CRUST PUT PIZZA DIRECTLY ON OVEN RACK. BAKE FOR 10-12 MINUTES OR UNTIL CHEESE HAS MELTED. IF YOU PREFER A SOFTER CRUST, PLACE PIZZA ON A NON-STICK BAKING SHEET. BAKE 12-14 MINUTES.

The regular Ellio’s pizza is not designed to be cooked in the microwave. You need to buy the special Microwavable version in order for it to come out tasting halfway decent.

Taste:

If you make the microwavable version, I think that it comes out too crispy. My son has a difficult time chewing the pieces even though my husband and I cut them up so tiny. We prefer to cook the regular Ellio’s in the conventional oven. When you cook it, make sure to keep checking it. If you don’t check it often, then you risk the chance of it coming out burnt and dried out. If you catch it at the exact moment it is finished, it comes out perfectly. The cheese mixed with the sauce on a little crispy crust is so delicious. It definitely doesn’t taste like your favorite local pizza joint but it is still tasty. My husband like to sprinkle a little extra mozzarella cheese and some oregano. I like mine plain, so does my son.

Where to find and cost:

I buy these at my local supermarket and at Target. I find them to be much cheaper at Target. They usually cost $2.50 at Target compared to my local supemarket for almost $5.00. Sometimes the supermarket will run a sale, two for $5.00. You are probably better off trying to find them at a superstore instead of a local supermarket. They are always in stock. I have never had a problem finding them. I only buy the cheese pizza version and the microwavable version. I prefer the regular version but the microwavable one isn't too bad in a pinch.
