Leave it to the gang at Heggies Pizza to come up with a pro tip that's pure genius!

Pizza has to be one of my favorite foods. In fact, it may be my FAVORITE food, the one I could probably eat every day and not get sick of it-- mainly because there are so many different kinds.

When it comes to frozen pizza, one of my favorites is Heggies Pizza, which was founded and is still made right here in Minnesota, up north in Milaca (which is northwest of the Twin Cities, a little over two and a half hours away from Rochester.)

Their pizza is loaded with tons of cheese (which I love) but also has a thin, crispy crust (which my wife loves.) And now, if you like a little extra crunch on your pizza, Heggies just came up with what has to be one of the most genius pro tips I've ever seen. (And I've seen a LOT of pizzas!)

Usually, when you make a frozen pizza, you bake in the oven (or cook it on the grill), cut it, and then dive in. (And if you're impatient like me, you always eat it waay too soon and end up burning your mouth because it's so hot.)

But Heggies just posted this pro tip that says you should cut the pizza FIRST. That's right, Heggies just blew my mind by suggesting you cut the pizza (and separate the pieces a bit) BEFORE you bake it. This then gives you even MORE crispiness-- because all sides of each piece are an 'end'. It's brilliant! Why didn't we think of this before?!?

Now, I'm perfectly happy making a Heggies Pizza the standard way-- because I'm not obsessed with those crispy edges. But if you'd like more crispiness on your pie, this looks like a pro tip that will change how you make a pizza from now on!

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
