Frozen pizza

What's behind our frozen pizza Ratings?

Experts at our National Testing and Research Center tested 16 models in frozen pizza to see which ones perform best.
We look for:
  • Overall score
    Recommended models are standout choices with high scores for taste. They may include CR Best Buys, which offer exceptional value. When narrowing your choices among models, consider taste, as well as nutrition, and price.
  • Nutrition score
    The Nutrition Ratings is based on values for energy density (calories per gram of food), total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, sugars, iron, calcium and dietary fiber per serving. Nutrient values are based on federal dietary guidelines. In determining the overall score, extra weighting may be given to nutrients which are influential, either positive or negative, to the food category.
  • Package size

We bought and baked more than 100 pies and cut them up into same-sized pieces. We chose cheese pizza because it's among the most popular types, according to the National Frozen Pizza Institute, a trade organization.

Frozen pizza buying guide

Frozen pizza buying guide

Sure, it's convenient--and cheaper than a pizzeria. But can frozen pizza truly satisfy anyone other than undiscriminating kids? Yes, according to our latest taste test of frozen cheese pies.

There's room for improvement among frozen pizza brands, as no pies were excellent. But half the pies in our Ratings were very good. Home Run Inn, sold in more than 20 states, was rated Very Good and the cheese version is tastier than deep dish and original cheese pizzas from Domino's and Pizza Hut. Red Baron pizza was also rated as Very Good and a CR best buy.
