Micah Fredman, a chef, and Joshua Brau, who worked in food sustainability, believe in frozen foods. Since early 2020, their company, Ipsa, has been selling ready-to-eat preparations such as Moroccan chicken, beef and kimchi stew, and pozole verde, of particularly high quality. Now they have introduced pizza. David Kay, a former Gramercy Tavern cook who spent a year and a half making and selling pizza under the name Pies Upstairs, from his apartment in Crown Heights, is their collaborator. Put a fully baked frozen pizza (margherita, white with potatoes and onions, and a monthly special, generously loaded with vegetables from the greengrocery market, all baked in commercial ovens) in a 450 degree oven at home and in about eight minutes you have a really good pizza with a thin but chewy crust tinged with char on the bubbling edge. Limited delivery is only available in New York City, Westchester County, and parts of New Jersey and Connecticut.
Pizzas, $29 to $33 for two (free delivery on orders over $95), eatipsa.com.
