We Found the Best Frozen Veggie Pizza

When it comes to frozen pizza from the grocery store, meat is king. For every veggie pizza you’re bound to come across five pepperoni, sausage, or meat-lovers pies. DiGiorno even makes something called a STACKED Piled High Pepperoni pizza that is quite literally piled with more pepperoni than it seems like a person should reasonably consume. In fact, more and more vegetarian pizza features some form of fake meat

For this taste test, we were looking for veggie pizzas, i.e. pizzas that are topped with vegetables and only vegetables. I know, I know. You’re like, “But so many veggie pizzas are not good!” And, yes, they can definitely have their faults. Frozen vegetables hold a lot of water, and when they’re heated in the oven, they can tend to release that water without crisping up. But we promise, the best frozen veggie pizza isn’t soggy and gross—especially if you keep it in the oven a little longer than the cooking instructions suggest. The vegetables are firm and flavorful. Honestly, if you’re not big on vegetables, veggie pizza is a good way to eat a bunch at once. These are the best veggie pizzas we tasted.

milton's cauliflower crust pizza

Best Cauliflower Crust

Milton’s Cauliflower Crust Roasted Vegetable

In my opinion, this frozen veggie pizza suffers from a lack of vegetables. But it makes up for what it lacks in veggie toppings by having a veggie-based crust that is just so good—thin, crispy, and flavorful, with just a little bit of chew. The veggies—zucchini, bell peppers, and onions—claim to be roasted, but they don’t really bring that roasty flavor or much of any flavor at all. That said, I think you can season this one up with some garlic powder and grated parm. It’s definitely not the best veggie pizza we tried, but it’s the best cauliflower crust option.

best mediterranean pizza

Best Thin

Open Nature Mediterranean Style Thin Crust Pizza

Open Nature is a generic brand sold at Albertsons (and its many, many sister stores) and, I gotta say, I generally really like their pizzas. Their Three Cheese cauliflower crust pie made our list of the best cauliflower crust pizzas and I always have one in my freezer at home to top as I please (usually with mushrooms and thinly sliced onions). Because Open Nature pizzas are generally cheaper than name brand frozen pies, I was absolutely stunned by the sheer amount of feta on this Mediterranean-style pizza. Seriously, the pizza itself probably costs around seven bucks, but there’s, like, eight dollars of feta on this thing. The salty bite of the feta tastes great with the veggies (spinach, onions, peppers, and mushrooms) and the creamy, garlicky sauce that’s smeared on the crust in lieu of tomato sauce. The crust isn’t anything to get excited about—it’s super thin, almost like a whole wheat cracker—but it’s a lovely bite of food all the same, and the best frozen veggie pizza by a mile if you really love feta.

rao's brike oven pizza

Best Crust

Rao’s Fire Roasted Vegetable

You know, I thought this frozen pizza would earn the superlative of “Best Sauce” because it’s Rao’s, and Rao’s makes some of the best tomato sauces at the grocery store. But while the sauce is very good—bold and salty and flavorful—the crust is the real show-stopper here. It’s stretchy, pillowy, and has just the right amount of crunch. My colleague Jordan Myrick said, “I would eat this crust as a breadstick if there were nothing on it.” The mix of veggies is really nice, too: red onions, mushrooms, peppers, and tomatoes (although, they could probably ditch the tomatoes, to be honest). Mostly, this loses points for being covered in so much dried oregano. It’s like the lid came off the shaker at the factory. Still, it’s one of the best veggie pizzas we tasted.

sprouts grilled vegetable pizza

Best Veggie-Forward

 Sprouts Organic Grilled Vegetable Pizza

If you like leafy greens, you’ll like this. It’s very earthy tasting because it’s covered in a lot of spinach. Maybe a little too much for my personal taste, but I appreciate the bold approach to a frozen vegetable pizza. Lean into it! Along with spinach, it’s topped with zucchini, eggplant, and peppers—with all those water-dense veggies, this one definitely benefited from an extra few minutes in the ol’ oven. The crust comes out nice and crispy and the cheese browned well, too. It’s the best veggie pizza for true veggie lovers.

trader joe's organic roasted vegetable pizza

Best of the Best

Trader Joe’s Organic Roasted Vegetable Pizza

When I told a vegetarian friend that this was the best frozen veggie pizza we tried during our taste test, her reply was something to the effect of, “I’m dubious.” Understandable! Trader Joe’s doesn’t always nail frozen pizza, but this one is sensational. They don’t even mention it on the front of the box, but it’s dotted with a creamy, tasty condiment referred to in the ingredients as “organic cheese sauce.” It’s a really nice touch that adds an extra layer of flavor to this veggie-rich pie. Along with mozzarella and the cheese sauce, it’s also topped with red onions, eggplant, zucchini, and red and yellow peppers. Even though the veggies looked a little raw and wet when we took the pie out of the oven, they were extremely flavorful (the eggplant spears were my personal favorite). The crust is crispy and well salted, and the tomato sauce is bright and fresh tasting. All in all, an excellent pie and the best frozen veggie pizza we tasted.
