11. 365 Three Cheese Mini Pizzas

In last place is the Whole Foods’ mini pizza bites. While the size is perfect for a party, your guests may sneer at these ”doughy” frozen pizzas. Across the board, tasters found the cheese to be particularly offensive, calling it “mushy” with a “fakeness that is potent.”

10. Tombstone Original Pizza

Though most of our tasters agreed that this frozen pizza had a classic look and feel, it appears that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Most described it as “generic” and that most of the problems were in the sauce. Apparently to our tasters it had a “good look and feel” but didn’t measure up in taste at all.

9. Celeste Personal Pizza

Making it personal doesn’t make it perfect. The nice “tang” to the sauce, which many described as sweet, wasn’t enough to bump this pitiful pizza any higher up. The biggest flaw? A cheese that is almost creamy without any flavor to speak of.

8. American Flatbread Tomato Sauce & Three Cheese

Sure it may be healthier and crispier than many of its competitors, it really didn’t give their taste buds much to rave about. Although it had “good herbs” it wasn’t considered pizza or even a good substitute for pizza. One taster summed it up quite nicely: “looks like pizza, tastes like Chinese food.”

7. Newman’s Own Margherita Pizza

Despite their use of semi-fresh ingredients, our tasters found this one “mushy” and “soggy.” While it was cooked at the same temperature and time as the others, one comment that seemed to summarize the overall consensus was “soggy bar pizza.”

6. Ellio’s Cheese Pizza

Ellio’s almost made it into the top five of this list but fell a little short when it came to being a taster favorite. However, we can say that this was the most easily identifiable slice of frozen pizza. Most picked up on and noted the “sweet sauce” and stated it was a “classic frozen pizza.”

5. America’s Choice Original Pizza

It appears that this frozen pizza almost lives up to its name. Despite having a “chemical aftertaste” according to one taster, most people appreciated the sauce and the crispiness of the dough.

4. DiGIorno Original Rising Crust Pizza

In our top five is the commercial favorite DiGiorno, with its “complex” herbs, delicious crust, and acceptable cheese to sauce ratio. Although it received a lot of positive feedback, it was definitely noted that the sauce was “very sugary” and that it isn’t exactly what they would call a classic pizza pie.

3. Amy’s 4 Cheese Pizza

Everyone loves a good cheesy pizza and our tasters were no different. They all noted that it tasted “close to the real thing” and felt it had a great variety of complex herbs. One taster even said it had a “good look and feel” and pleasantly reminded another of garlic bread.

1. Trader Giotto’s Handmade 4 Formaggi

The pizza that won the hearts of our taste testers was none other than Trader Joe’s four-cheese pizza. The sauce was flavorful, the cheese was perfect and the crust was perfectly crispy. Overall, tasters thought that it tasted the most like pizzeria pizza and was the best to serve a crowd.
