Pizzeria Picco’s Frozen Pizzas

by arnold on September 17, 2008

We went back to Pizzeria Picco a couple weeks ago when my sister in law was in town. (She ate really well during her stay with us.) As we were enjoying their sublimely delicious pizzas, I was reminded that they also sell frozen versions of some of their most popular pies, so we bought a few (Marin, Cannondale, and Seven) so we wouldn’t need to drive to Larkspur for our next Pizzeria Picco fix.


Pizzeria Picco's Frozen Pies

You can tell by the black char spots in the crust that the pizzas are par cooked, so you only have to heat them up in a 500F oven for about 3 minutes…it’s that simple. The crust isn’t quite the same as a fresh pizza, but it’s still the best frozen pizza I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, the pics I took of the Cannondale came out blurry, but here’s what it looks like fresh from the oven at Picco.


Cannondale

We haven’t eaten the Seven (seven mushroom pizza) yet, but the Marin (roasted garlic, young potatoes, mozzarella, parmesan, rosemary oil) was nearly as good as the fresh pie. (This pic is also from one of our Picco visits)


Marin

I used to hate white pies, but between Mozza’s Bianco pizza and Picco’s Marin, I’m definitely a convert. Next time we go back to Picco, I think I’m going to stock up on the Marin.

@JT: same price as their regular pizzas, just frozen…so between $9—15.

that’s gotta be the best looking frozen pizza I’ve ever seen. Way too steep for frozen, though. $15? No way.

@Jude: I know what you mean, but you’d pay that much for it in the restaurant anyway. There’s no preservatives or other chemicals since everything is housemade and fresh, and that’s worth something too. Plus buying it frozen saves me the 55-mile drive out to Larkspur whenever I get a craving (the Bay Area is a bit pizza deprived).

Unfortunately, our current stash has been depleted, so I won’t be having any more of these fine pies until after our next trip to Pizzeria Picco…whenever that is. :-)
