Jack’s Pepperoni thin crust frozen pizza

Best Cheap Thin Crust

Jack’s Original Thin Pepperoni ($3.49)

If you like a thin, crispy, crackery pizza (think Chicago tavern style), then you’re gonna love this cheap frozen pizza from Jack’s. The cheese and pepperoni go all the way to the edge of the crust, so you get more bang for your buck. The crust style really accentuates the savory, spicy flavor of the pepperoni, too. For less than four bucks, you can’t afford not to toss a few of these in the freezer.

Best Cheap French Bread

Red Baron French Bread Singles Supreme Pizzas ($4.29)

If you always thought Stouffer’s made the best French bread pizza, you have always been wrong! That’s right: Red Baron makes the tastiest French bread pizzas. And you get two supremes in a pack for less than $5. Incredible. The bread is perfectly squishy on the inside and crunchy on the outside; plus, the combo of veggies, smoky pepperoni, and fennel-forward sausage bits makes this cheap frozen pizza taste especially deluxe. These are a supremely good deal, if we do say so ourselves.

trader joe's organic roasted vegetable pizza

Best Cheap Veggie

Trader Joe’s Organic Roasted Vegetable Pizza ($4.99)

Veggie pizza can be a real watery mess, but not this roasted veggie pizza from Trader Joe’s, which also happens to be a great cheap pizza at less than five bucks a pop. This thing is loaded with red onions, eggplant, zucchini, and red and yellow peppers, but the real draw is the creamy cheesy condiment that dots the pie. It contributes so much flavor and makes this cheap frozen pizza taste way more expensive than it actually is. Also, we now firmly believe that eggplant should always be on veggie pizzas!

best thin crust pepperoni pizza

Best Cheap Pepperoni

Red Baron Thin & Crispy Pepperoni ($5.49)

When we taste tested pepperoni pizzas, this one couldn’t quite contend with the pepperoni-piled pizza from Screamin’ Sicilian, but it was our lead pepperoni pizza taste tester’s personal favorite. It’s practically a dupe for a thin crust pie from Domino’s. Even though the crust is thin and crackery, it’s still pleasantly buttery. This pie is not dry. And it’s loaded with plenty of pepperoni slices, especially for the very reasonable price.

Roasted Garlic & Pesto Pizza with Deep Fried Crust

Best Cheap App

Roasted Garlic & Pesto Pizza with Deep Fried Crust ($5.99)

Serving frozen pizza to company might sound like a party foul, but this cheap frozen pizza from Trader Joe’s comes off as much fancier than your typical frozen pie from the grocery store. The crust is doughy, stretchy, and crispy, and the glut of cheese and oily pesto really makes this a decadent delight. It could use a little more garlic, but for $5.99 a pie, we’re happy to add our own.

  • Target has an amazing Thin crust nearly like Jack’s pizza 🍕but holds up better in a toaster oven 😋

  • I was 100% that person who grew up eating Stouffer’s and thinking it was the best frozen French bread pizza, and only a few years ago I tried a Red Barron and was immediately like, “Why have I missed out on this for 45 years?”

    Red Barron is CLEARLY superior in every way. Bread quality, sauce quality, meat quality, veg quality.

  • Did you try DiGiornio’s? How did you find it? I would be curious to hear about what didn’t make the cut and why!
