Best Gluten-Free Frozen Pizza: The 5 Best Store-Bought Gluten-Free Pizzas

The best gluten-free pizza should make you forget all about a flour crust. It should be crispy, chewy, and flavorful. But gluten-free pizza is also a wonderful opportunity to embrace the full flavor of vegetables, so in this taste test, we were hoping for some veg-forward taste whether it came from chickpeas, cauliflower, broccoli, or even sweet potato. Of course, we were also looking for excellent cheese and awesome toppings. Five pizzas we tried brought the goods.

I love frozen gluten-free pizzas, which is not something I would have said a few weeks ago. The additional vegetable flavor you get from a cauliflower or chickpea crust nourishes and satisfies in a way that flour doughs often cannot. Also, I left this taste test feeling much more energetic than I would have if I’d eaten a regular pizza. Pizzas made without gluten are easier to digest, and so I didn’t feel all tired and bogged down. Most of the pizzas we tried tasted quite good, too. In my year at Sporked, one thing I’ve realized is that gluten-free products are killing it. They’re full of wonderful flavor and texture, and the best gluten-free frozen pizzas are no exception.

Best of the Best

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 is Banza’s Four Cheese offering, without a doubt.

Best Veggie Pizza

Milton’s Roasted Vegetable Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Milton’s (a Costco product) brings out the best in cauliflower pizza. The crust is quite pronounced; it’s vegetal and somewhat funky like you expect fresh cauliflower to be. But, 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 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 it down to their deliciously made cauliflower crust. If you’re a Costco member, this is the best store bought gluten-free pizza to stock up on.

Best Unique

Amy’s Veggie Crust Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza

This is my sleeper pick. As far as personal taste goes, I’d rank this up near Banza 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 another pizza that I  recommend slopping into some ranch. The cheese blend is lacking, which is why it comes in at third on 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.

Best Meat

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 cauliflower crust is crispy, yet quite chewy and dense. The undercarriage of the pizza is spot on, too—perfectly foldable and 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.

Best Value

Kirkland Signature Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Kirkland Signature’s supreme 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. I think it needs a bit more flavor and maybe some spice, but the value here 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.

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

  • 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!
