A TikToker went viral on the platform after uploading one showing the bizarre texture of a frozen pizza Jack bought.
User Dan (@hananddan9) opens the pizza to reveal a cardboard disc topped with frozen shards of mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.
“Looks good, doesn’t it? Yes, if you want to eat cardboard!” he says, lifting the cake in the air and revealing the bottom of the pizza, revealing that there is no dough. It seems whoever built the frozen pizza missed a crucial step and put the bread under the cardboard instead of the other way around.
“That’s the pizza,” he says, before slicing at the dough on the counter, “The dough. The pizza… on the box. Look at that.” Dan then flips the bread on the counter, driving the bug further home before slamming it against the table. “Look at that. What the hell is going on here?”
In a caption for the clip, Dan writes, “No wonder it was on sale.”

There are several videos online showing how frozen pizzas are made, and unsurprisingly, it’s a mechanical assembly line that feeds prepared balls of dough through a machine that slices them. Excess dough is then fed back into the machine which breaks it up to make more dough discs and another fixture houses sauce containers which then fall onto the discs and a third machine is used to spread the cheese.
It’s not known what type of assembly process Jack’s Pizza, the brand Dan demonstrates in the video, implements, but it’s believed there was a mistake in production that resulted in the dough being placed under the cardboard, sauce, cheese, and Peperoni, on the other hand, is delivered as assembled.
Viewers in the comments on Dan’s post noted that if he decided to just eat the cardboard, the pizza probably wouldn’t taste that different.
“Honestly. Tastes the same,” said one user.
“Actually the same,” added another.
The TikToker added that while they tried to transfer the contents of the box onto the bread, that attempt was ultimately unsuccessful.
