Micah Fredman, a chef, and Joshua Brau, who worked in food sustainability, believe in frozen food. Since early 2020, their company, Ipsa, has been selling ready-to-heat preparations like 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 has spent a year and a half making and selling pizza under the name Pies Upstairs, from his Crown Heights apartment, is their collaborator. Pop a fully baked frozen pizza (margherita, white with potatoes and onions, and a monthly special liberally laden with greenmarket goods, all baked in commercial ovens) into 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 its bubbled edge. Limited delivery is available only in the New York City, Westchester County and parts of New Jersey and Connecticut.
