White pizza is a lot like a white suit. It needs to be perfectly crafted to be good because there’s no tomato sauce to hide any topping or crust flaws. Unlike a white suit, though, it is perfectly acceptable to enjoy a white pizza after Labor Day. So we taste tested ten different tomato sauce-free frozen pizzas in order to find the best frozen white pizza on the market.
The category of “white pizza” is broad. It could mean a pie topped with white sauce like alfredo sauce. Or it could mean a sauce-less pizza—almost like a focaccia covered in cheese. Essentially, as long as the only color on the pizza came from the toppings, we counted it as a white pizza. Like any other frozen pizza taste test, we looked for gooey, cheesy cheese, flavorful crust that’s either crackery and crispy or delectably chewy, and vibrant toppings that don’t get all watery when you bake them. (That last thing is extra important for a pizza with no tomato sauce.)
Here’s the best frozen white pizza in the freezer aisle.
- Cappello’s Spinach Caramelized Onion White Pizza
This grain-free frozen white pizza is made with an almond flour crust, so it looks a bit different from a traditional flour crust—it’s a much darker color. But it doesn’t taste much different from a classic crust. It’s chewy and just slightly denser than a flour crust. The cheese is savory (pizza cheese should taste like something, BTW, it shouldn’t just be a stretchy blanket) and the white sauce is subtly garlicky and cheesy. The onion is sweet and does exactly what caramelized onion should do, but the real star is the spinach, which manages to not get too wet or too crispy in the oven.

- Feel Good Foods Truffle Mushroom Square Pan Pizza
Usually, gluten-free bready products tend to try and focus on something other than the actual gluten-free product. But not this white pizza. This is puffy and doughy and all about the crust. It’s practically fluffy focaccia. And, straight out of the oven, you might not know it was gluten-free. (It’s a different story after it gets cool, though.) The truffle flavor is mild, the cheese is reminiscent of fondue cheese (even though it’s mozzarella), and the mushrooms are perfectly tender. It is ever so slightly dry, though, so I would recommend serving this white pizza with a dipping sauce—even ranch dressing would do the trick.

- Urban Pie Truffle Mushroom
I love how much the rosemary flavor comes through in this frozen white pizza. It really tastes like something you would get at a gastropub or from some guy’s retrofitted pizza oven/van outside of a brewery. The crust is crispy, thin, and buttery—and it actually has flavor. The mushroom slices are big and meaty. The cheese blend (fontina and parmesan) is punchy without being overwhelming. And the onions provide a delightful sweetness that contrasts against the otherwise very savory pie. If you love a thin crust pizza, this is the best frozen white pizza for you.

- Newman’s Own Stone Fired Crust Quattro Formaggi
This is a pizza with no tomato sauce—and it is proud of it. It’s everything you love about a Neapolitan-style pizza—the chewy, bubbly crust, the creamy, stretchy cheese—without the sauce. And it’s fantastic. Seriously, I think about this white pizza a lot. It’s a real feat of baking science to make a frozen white pizza that puffs up so yeasty and crusty in the oven—as if it was homemade dough. And the cheese has an incredible stretch. You could put this cheese pull on Insta and rack up the likes. While it’s great on its own, it’s also ripe for dressing up. Drizzle on a balsamic reduction. Scatter some fresh basil and prosciutto. Rip off pieces and dip it into some tapenade. It’s the best frozen white pizza to keep in your freezer at all times.
