Everyone Is Making This "10/10" Trader Joe's Pizza

A couple of weeks ago, Trader Joe's had a huge hit with its sold-out kimbap. Now, the beloved store has another hit with a pizza recipe made by fans that people are giving "10/10."

Trader Joe's is the only store that has the items for this spicy pizza recipe. Pie videos have become very popular on TikTok, especially in the last few weeks, as fans make the dish again and rave about it. 

But the trend goes all the way back to September 2022, when Blair Cooley (@blaircooleydietician), the founder of TikTok and a dietitian, shared a video recipe for pizza that has nearly 140,000 likes and 1.5 million views.

Trader Joe's already-made Garlic & Herb Pizza Dough is pressed into a greased glass pan by Cooley at the beginning of the movie. Cooley doesn't use regular pizza sauce on top of the dough.

Some meats from Trader Joe's Spicy Uncured Charcuterie Collection and sliced Fire Roasted Red Peppers are also put on top of the cheeses by Cooley. The pizza is baked at 450 F for 20 minutes. 

As a result? Cooley calls this a "perfect" pizza because it's doughy on the inside and crispy on the outside. In the past few weeks, other makers have also made the pizza and loved it just as much as the first person did.

Cooley wrote her own e-cookbook of simple, healthy recipes with few ingredients because she loves getting other people to cook. Seeing so many people make and enjoy the recipe has been a wonderful experience for her.

"It makes me so happy when people make my recipes because I grew up cooking with my Italian mom. Watching her cook encouraged my love of cooking, and we made so many memories together."

In 2023, this isn't the only recipe with Trader Joe's ingredients that has gone popular on the internet. These lazy Trader Joe's meals take very little work and ingredients. In fact, they have become very popular on social media this year.
