    I've never heard of that version of a wedgie.  Is it similar to calzone?

    I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but no frozen pizza could touch the original Wolfgang Puck's.  I believe Linda McCartney (RIPx10) had one too in her frozen vegetarian line.
    It’s more like a panini.


    There’s a local chain near me called “Fox’s Pizza” that has wedgies, they’re pretty good but I rarely get one. I think my favorite is this one that has shaved beef, bacon, and cheddar cheese.

    I don't think I've ever had that.  But it's funny how the only "with everything" pizzas I eat are of the frozen variety.  Mama Celeste!

    Took my son to a 5 yr old bday party at a bowling alley today. “Pizza” was served. Let’s just say they’re not making it from scratch in the back. Lol

    I can honestly say I haven't had frozen pizza for over 20 years.

    I remember at university we would spread ragu over pita shells and place cheddar and black forest ham for toppings- thinking we were pizza cooking gurus.

    My 10 year old daughter has recently discovered the cook book isle of her school library. We've been experimenting with 80's recipes for weeks. Tonight's menu is a pizza fondue. I'll keep you posted! :i_dunno:

    So has anyone ever heard of mountain pies? I think they might have other names in different regions, but they’re very popular here in western PA, and the best kind is pizza. You cook them on a campfire and they are the shit. This was last night at my uncles camp. 1 pizza mountain pie and one lemon/blackberry.

    Looks for like a hot pocket or calzone than a pizza.

    Yeah we just call them pizza because it uses pizza ingredients. They are waaaaay better than hot pockets though.

    You make them using one of these, just put a piece of buttered bread down on one side, load the ingredients on it, then put the other piece of bread on, close it, then put it in the fire.

    that ham and cheese is making me hungry. I would now add dill chips.

    Nice. I usually make some of these when having a fire. We always called them hobo pies. Best one i ever had was one i made in a early morning camp fire. I used the previous nights steak and potato leftovers. It was legendary. My wife and I still talk about it once in awhile, and it was years ago. Lol.

    “legendary”? you still talk about it?

    Reminds me of a mix between a grilled cheese and a montecristo.

    I just brought it up with the wife, "aghhh, so good" she said.Then she said," the steak , the potato. Will you make that for me again sometime?"
    I dont think it can ever be repeated.

    That sounds good! I like the name hobo pies, that’s funny. 

    We’ve came up with a list of about 30 different ones that we want to try making, but haven’t actually gotten around to trying most of them. The closest we came is when my sister wanted to have a mountain pie birthday party, my uncle came over and we made 20 each of pizza, cheeseburger, and Mac & cheese. Then we made 50+ pie filling ones, so well over 100 mountain pies in one day. ‘‘Twas legendary.

    Yep, hobo pies!
    Big staple in scouting.  I haven't had any hobo irons since I was a preteen, time to get some more now that I have a boy of my own.

    Yum! Top secret trick, get a paper plate and put a healthy dose of powdered sugar on it, then when your pie is done, put it on that plate and shake it around on both sides. It’s like icing on the cake.

    Pro trick back atcha, use Hellman's instead of butter on all your savory pies.
    I really like leftover potroast with onions and carrot shavings and cheddar and americAm cheese.

    Unfortunately I hate mayo, I will share that with my family though, I’m sure some of them will be eager to try it. Thanks!

    That device is called a pie iron. It is how we got the kids to enjoy camping.  Killer.

    When you grill it the mayo flavor disappears, it makes the bread taste like sourdough.
