Best Frozen Pizza

Today I am going to talk about some of the best-frozen pizza that is currently being sold on the market today. If you are new to my blog welcome. Recently I’ve done what i call an accidental series. The series is called the best and worst of something. If you are new and are curious about what I’ve covered thus far all the links will be provided at the end of the blog.


Amy’s Cheese

Nutrition (⅓ pizza, 123 g): 290 calories, 12 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 590 mg sodium, 33 g carbs (2 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 12 g protein

Amy’s pizza is made with organic tomatoes, which is important as scientists have found this pesticide-free version of the red fruit actually has higher levels of cancer-fighting lycopene. Bonus: There’s no refined wheat or sugar, which means this pie offers more nutritional bang for your buck. Curious about carbs?


Trader Joe’s Wood Fired Uncured Pepperoni Pizza

Nutrition (⅓ pizza, 144 g): 390 calories, 19 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 840 mg sodium, 40 g carbs (3 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 16 g protein

When nabbing a good ol’ pepperoni pizza, we’d recommend a pie that uses uncured pepperoni. Uncured just means the meat is free from chemical nitrates, which have been known to form carcinogenic compounds under conditions of high heat (like, say, a 400-degree oven).



Newman’s Own Thin & Crispy Pepperoni

Nutrition (⅓ pie, 125 g): 320 calories, 16 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 800 mg sodium, 31 g carbs (2 g fiber, ), 15 g protein

Newman’s also skips out on the pepperoni laced with nitrates—which, besides serving as a precursor for carcinogenic compounds, also may interfere with the body’s natural ability to process sugar and increase the risk for diabetes. Those who have had the pleasure of tasting this “better than takeout” pizza love that the crust is crispy and thin without tasting crackery and is full of grains and flax seed.


Newman’s Own Thin & Crispy Roasted Vegetable

Nutrition (⅓ pizza, 135 g): 240 calories, 9 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat), 550 mg sodium, 33 g carbs (3 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 11 g protein

A fire-roasted trio of bell peppers, mushrooms, and red onions top this multi-grain thin and crispy crust pizza. It’s also higher in fiber and lower in sugar than its alternative.


Digiorno Italian Sausage

Nutrition (⅙ pizza, 143 g): 330 calories, 14 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 760 mg sodium, 37 g carbs (1 g fiber, 5 g sugar), 15 g protein

We don’t typically recommend grabbing a slice with an equivalent amount of calories as a personal pie, but in this category, we’d rather you go with Digiorno than the alternatives. This pie has better nutrition and better ingredients.


Smart Flour Classic Cheese

Nutrition (½ pizza, 143 g): 350 calories, 14 g fat (7 g saturated fat), 850 mg sodium, 43 g carbs (3 g fiber, 5 g sugar), 13 g protein

This thin-crusted pie is the real deal; you won’t even realize it’s gluten free! Smart Flour has their own proprietary blend of nutrient-dense ancient grains, including sorghum, teff, and amaranth. They were a little heavy-handed on the sodium, though, so be sure to drink water while you’re eating a slice.

Eat This: It’s a TIE! Udi’s GF Three Cheese Pizza

Nutrition (½ pizza, 142 g): 360 calories, 15 g fat (9 g saturated fat), 570 mg sodium, 45 g carbs (2 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 12 g protein

Udi’s pie has similar nutritionals to Smart Flour, but it’s lower in sodium. Pick up this GF standard, made with brown rice flour, and a blend of mozzarella, fontina, and romano cheeses.


Amy’s Light & Lean Cheese Pizza

Nutrition (1 pizza, 142 g): 270 calories, 6 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 480 mg sodium, 38 g carbs (3 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 14 g protein

One of the best frozen pies on the market, Amy’s lightens up a classic pizza by using a low-fat mozzarella but still keeps all the flavor you know and love.


Amy’s Pesto Pizza

Nutrition (⅓ pizza, 128 g): 310 calories, 12 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat), 480 mg sodium, 39 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 12 g protein

Organic basil and pine nuts make up the traditional pesto that flavors up this pie. Meanwhile, all of the nutritional safe reasonable and allow you to responsibly indulge.


 American Flatbread Tomato Sauce & Three Cheese

Nutrition (½ pizza, 128 g): 300 calories, 10 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 700 mg sodium, 37 g carbs (2 g fiber, 1 g sugar), 15 g protein

If you want a farm-fresh pie without stepping in manure, pick up this pie in the frozen food section. American Flatbread uses mostly organic ingredients as well as sources cheese from Vermont which is made with milk from Jersey cows.


Newman’s Own Thin & Crispy BBQ Recipe Chicken

Nutrition (⅓ pizza, 133 g): 290 calories, 9 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 750 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (2 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 17 g protein

Newman’s Own uses real diced white chicken meat (instead of the rib meat you’ll find in CPK’s version). They also use an actual barbeque sauce rather than a mixture of molasses and food dye.


Annie’s Mini Pizza Bagels Uncured Pepperoni

Nutrition (4 pieces, 84 g): 200 calories, 6 g fat (2.5 g saturated fat), 500 mg sodium, 27 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 10 g protein

Pepperoni pizza bagels are genius; they combine three culinary favorites that are often considered to be diet no-no’s to create a tasty snack that’s fairly easy on the waistline. They’re even more so when they’re made without nitrates like in this version. Kids and adults alike are sure to love their compact, portion-controlled size and big flavor.


Newman’s Own Thin & Crispy Supreme

Nutrition (⅓ pie, 139 g): 320 calories, 15 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 750 mg sodium, 33 g carbs (3 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 14 g protein

When going deluxe, you have to be willing to sacrifice something if you want to stick to your body goals. Luckily, this pie subs out an unnecessary carb-laden crust for a crispy base, allowing you to indulge in the extra meat and veggies, guilt free.
