Consumer Reports: Frozen Pizza with Pizzazz

Posted: Updated:

 

Americans spent more than $3 billion last year on frozen pizza. That's a lot of dough! 

How tasty are the offerings in your grocery store's freezer? Consumer Reports just evaluated 16 individual-sized frozen pizzas, both pepperoni and cheese. Testers are happy to report that you can get takeout taste in your own home.

Home Run Inn Classic was top-rated-both cheese and pepperoni. In fact, tasters said it was higher quality than Domino's and Pizza Hut. It is available in 25 states.

The Home Run Inn Classic pizzas were loaded with fresh-tasting sauce and lots of stretchy cheese. But they are a fat and calorie splurge compared with others in the freezer case.

Red Baron Singles Deep Dish are Consumer Reports Best Buys and fared a bit better for nutrition. The pastry-like crust had noticeably crispy edges, with slightly spicy sauce and stretchy cheese.

Many of the individual pizzas tested are also microwaveable and have packaging specially designed to crisp the crust. But testers found that they're better when cooked in the oven.

The good news is that pizza can be an excellent source of calcium! But no surprise- Consumer Reports found that pepperoni pizzas tended to be less nutritious than cheese pizzas because of their fat and sodium levels.

In fact, according to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 90 percent of Americans eat more sodium than is recommended for a healthy diet.
