The Best Gluten Free Frozen Pizzas We’ve Tasted

The best gluten-free pizza should make you forget all about a wheat flour crust. It should be crispy, chewy, and flavorful. Of course, we also want excellent cheese and awesome toppings. We conducted two gluten free frozen pizza taste tests, and are pleased to tell you that even in the time between the first and the second, the frozen gluten free pizza options have improved by leaps and bounds. 

“I want you to quote me,” managing editor Gwynedd Stuart announced after our most recent frozen gluten free pizza taste test. “Some of these are better than gluten-full pizzas.” While our first gluten free frozen pizza taste test yielded GF pizzas with delightfully veggie-forward crusts, our latest taste test revealed frozen gluten free pizza that tasted like some of the best frozen pizza, period. Our newly added top three gluten free frozen pizzas taste so much like gluten-full frozen pizza, we dare you to identify them blindfolded. 

But maybe that’s not what you want. Maybe you came here looking for the best gluten free frozen pizza that tastes like chickpeas or cauliflower or sweet potato. You’re in luck. Because this list includes those kinds of frozen gluten free pizza, too. 

Every time we taste new gluten free frozen pizzas, we become less and less loyal to gluten-based crusts. Whether you’re totally new to the GF world or you are an old pro just looking to shake up pizza night, check out our list of the best gluten free frozen pizza. (And check out some of our other gluten free rankings too, like the best gluten free bread, the best gluten free pasta, and the best gluten free cookies.)


Kirkland Signature Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Best Value

Kirkland Signature Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Kirkland Signature’s supreme gluten-free cauliflower crust pizza is loaded with toppings. It lives up to the “supreme” branding with stacks of pepperoni, crumbled sausage, mushrooms, and peppers. The crust is quite crispy, and not too thick, either. This pizza is all toppings, which I know some people seek out in their frozen pizzas—especially gluten free frozen pizza, where the crust isn’t usually the main attraction. I think it needs a bit more flavor and maybe some spice, but the value of Costco’s gluten free cauliflower crust pizza is incredible. You get two big ass pizzas per box, bringing each pizza to a total of $7.46. That’s an awesome price for the great quality you get here—the best gluten free frozen pizza for Costco shoppers is Kirkland Signature. — Danny Palumbo

California Pizza Kitchen Uncured Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Sausage Cauliflower Pizza

Best Meat Lover’s

California Pizza Kitchen Uncured Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Sausage Cauliflower Pizza

CPK’s frozen gluten free pizza is a greasy, delicious meat lovers pizza with a cauliflower crust. The sausage is spicy and fatty, and the pepperoni is meaty and salty. Pair those two cured meats with mushrooms, and you’ve got an umami bomb of a pizza. I really enjoy how CPK’s gluten free cauliflower crust is crispy, yet quite chewy and dense. The undercarriage of the pizza is spot on, too—perfectly foldable but not too floppy. It might need a little something extra, but if you’ve got some shredded parmesan cheese and crushed red chili pepper at home, this pizza will be next level. — Danny Palumbo

Amy’s Veggie Crust Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza

Best Veggie Crust

Amy’s Veggie Crust Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza

This is my sleeper pick. As far as personal taste goes, I’d rank this up at the top based on how astonishingly good the crust is. Get this: The dough is made from broccoli, cauliflower, and sweet potato, and you truly taste each of those things in every bite. The sweet potato adds such a lovely sweetness to the uniquely cruciferous taste of broccoli and cauliflower. This is a pizza that I recommend slopping into some ranch. The cheese blend is lacking, which is why it comes in towards the middle of our best gluten-free frozen pizza list, but I think that the uniquely constructed crust is quite the accomplishment. This is the best frozen gluten free pizza for those looking for a pure vegetable experience. — Danny Palumbo

Milton’s Roasted Vegetable Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Best Veggie Pizza

Milton’s Roasted Vegetable Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Milton’s gluten free cauliflower crust really tastes like cauliflower. It’s vegetal and somewhat funky like you expect fresh cauliflower to be. And the way the toppings compliment that crust is just wonderful. They use a mix of yellow, green, and red bell peppers, which isn’t just lovely to look at, it also brings a welcomed amount of sweetness to the pizza. This is a pure joy of a vegetable pizza, and another one that I will be dipping and dunking into a big bowl of ranch dressing at home for maximum flavor. Veggie pizzas rule, and Milton’s embraces the concept down to their deliciously made cauliflower crust. — Danny Palumbo

Banza Four Cheese

Best Chickpea Crust

Banza Four Cheese

I love this pizza. Love it! It’s just so dang warm and hearty—maybe even more so than a regular pizza. The crust is made with chickpeas, so there is this additional savory, protein-rich quality to it that feels absolutely nourishing in a way that flour crust often does not. The sauce is warm, bright, and pungent, and the cheese is a tangy blend of mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, and white cheddar. The crust is crispy on the bottom but not cracker-like. It’s so good that I ate two slices during the taste test (I’m only required to take one bite). The best frozen gluten-free pizza with a chickpea crust is Banza’s Four Cheese offering, without a doubt. — Danny Palumbo

Udi’s Pepperoni 

Best Saucy

Udi’s Pepperoni 

I love how savory this frozen gluten free pizza is. The sauce really comes at you with a ton of umami flavor and a lot of oregano. I often dunk my pizza into more marinara sauce, so this extra sauce GF pie really satisfied my saucy cravings—it’s definitely the best frozen gluten free pizza for tomato sauce freaks like me. The pepperoni is extremely good and peppery. And the crust gets really nice and crispy around the edges. It has a really great, chewy-crispy texture that you’d never guess was gluten free. — Justine Sterling

Talia di Napoli Margherita Pizza

Best Neapolitan Style

Talia di Napoli Margherita Pizza

If you’ve been missing classic, chewy, doughy Neapolitan-style pizzas since you kicked gluten, then look no further for the best frozen gluten free pizza. It comes out of the oven looking like something you’d get at a fancy Italian pizza spot—complete with bits of charred crust. The tomato sauce tastes fresh and the cheese is gooey. And the crust tastes and smells deliciously yeasty. It’s also really well-seasoned. You won’t leave the crust behind on this pizza—it tastes like a really good breadstick. All of our taste testers agreed that they would never know this was gluten free frozen pizza. To make the crust, Talia uses not cauliflower or chickpeas or even tapioca, but ingredients like buckwheat flour, rice flour, and wheat starch that has been processed to qualify as gluten free, per FDA requirements. I implore you to try this gluten free frozen pizza—it would even impress a Naples native. — Justine Sterling

Mama Cozzi’s Cauliflower Pizza Pepperoni

Best of the Best

Mama Cozzi’s Cauliflower Pizza Pepperoni

Until our most recent frozen gluten free pizza taste test, Banza had the top spot on this ranking. But Mama Cozzi’s (yes, Aldi’s Mama Cozzi’s) wowed us so much with its crispy, chewy GF crust, that it blew Banza out of the water. Banza, you still have a place in our heart, but the improvements within the field of frozen gluten free pizza crust science cannot be denied. Mama Cozzi’s gluten free cauliflower crust gets so crispy and crunchy—but there’s still enough chew to keep each slice just floppy enough. And the cheese, oh my, the cheese. It’s gooey and thick and decadent and it goes all the way to the edge—this is birthday party pizza, right here. The pepperoni adds some meaty spice to the mix, but the real stars are the cheese and the crust. For whatever reason, the veggie Mama Cozzi’s cauliflower crust didn’t do it for us. But this one is a home run and the number one best frozen gluten free pizza you can buy. — Justine Sterling

  • That list is upside down. Banza makes one of the worst gluten-free pizza’s I’ve ever tried. Kirkland’s entry does need a little flavor boost but tastes most like a wheat-based pizza of the ones you tested.

  • I’m starting to think America may just not be the market for frozen processed GF foods. But, that can’t be with Companies like Katz that don’t operate in Canada. Either way try Oogie’s pizza gluten free. I’d say that would make top board. Though at the end of the day nothing beats my homemade one (which I also freeze).

  • The Digiorno Gluten Free Four cheese or pepperoni are top tier IMO. Super crispy crust, doesn’t fall apart and tastes like normal pizza.

  • Did you guys try the Freschetta gluten free pizza? It’s the best i’ve tried and my non gluten-free friends said it was better than a lot of regular frozen pizzas

    Reply
    • Agreed!

  • Did you try Against the Grain? It’s made in VT, but I’ve seen it as far away as North Carolina, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s everywhere.

    Amazing!

    • I came just to say the same! Even when my wife (not gluten free) and I each get our own frozen pizzas for dinner she opts for against the grain!

    • I came to say this! They sell it all the way over here in California, so the Sporked team can definitely get their hands on it. The pesto is my go to frozen pizza. So good! And my gluten eating, Italian husband and his family like it too, so that says something for how good it is!

  • Banza is top tier in pretty much everything they do. Their Mac and cheese is the best of the best!
