Let us take a wild guess: Right now in your freezer, you probably have a frozen pizza or two tucked away. Hey, we don’t blame you — we and many others do too. According to Consumer Reports, every day of the year, 1 in 8 Americans eat some sort of pizza, with 37 percent of us eating frozen pizza two to three times per month. Why? Because it’s delicious! Not to mention it’s probably the easiest, quickest dinner option for all of us busy, on-the-go types.
Indulging so frequently in frozen pizzas comes with its drawbacks, though. Typically, when we think of the best frozen pizzas, we think of those that are also the worst for you — yes, including DiGiorno, which can have around 1,800 calories per pie. But, if you’ve noticed lately, more and more healthier alternatives to frozen pizza have trickled onto the frozen food aisle shelves from brands like Caulipower, Cali’flour Foods and Daiya.
According to Mintel, a market research firm, more than half of frozen-pizza buyers said they’d buy more often if they weren’t as processed and 59 percent said they’d buy more if the frozen pizza had more premium ingredients. And frozen-pizza manufacturers have clearly taken note, as they’ve been cutting preservatives, lowering sodium content and even making pizzas with cauliflower crusts.
All that said, we’ve rounded up the 15 best-tasting frozen pizzas out there, including pizzas on both ends of the spectrum — from downright sinful (i.e., has many, many calories) to nearly guilt-free.
