I love pizza, but if you’re gluten-free like me, you know that eating pizza outside of your home is a dangerous sport. It’s like playing Russian Roulette with your health.
While many restaurants offer certified gluten-free pizza (select Pizza Huts and all California Pizza Kitchen restaurants), very few, and I do mean very few, prepare their gluten-free pizzas in a manner safe for someone on a strict gluten-free to consume.
Most pizza restaurants place their gluten-free pizza crust on the same surfaces as the wheat crust. Most use the same toppings, putting their glutenly little hands in the same toppings used to make the gluten-free pizza. On top of that, many restaurants cook their gluten-free pizzas on the same surfaces as their regular pizza, and then cut the gluten-free pizza with the same pizza cutters used to cut the wheat pizzas.
As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities for your gluten-free pizza to get coated in wheat flour and make you sick to your stomach.
I very rarely eat pizza outside of the home. Doing so has made me sick before. I’ve learned my lesson the hard way. No thanks to painful bloating and embarressing gas and diarrhea – gulp!
Instead, I prefer to either make my own pizza (I made an amazing doughy gluten-free pizza crust!) or I buy it frozen at the grocery store.
I searched Safeway, King Soopers, Sprouts, Costco, Trader Joe’s, and Lucky’s Market to find 10 frozen gluten-free pizzas to try. I purchased, tested and ate them all (with the help of my family, of course).
10 Gluten-Free Frozen Pizzas #NimaTested
Below I share 10 gluten-free frozen pizzas, all which I tested with my Nima Sensor. The Nima Sensor is a portable gluten detecting device. Scroll down to read more about it.
(1) My favorite, and what I’d say is the absolute BEST tasting frozen gluten-free pizza is Freschetta. This pizza is certified gluten-free by the National Celiac Association, so I had a feeling Nima would not detect gluten (it didn’t).
I love the overall taste of this pizza. The sauce is savory and has a wonderful savory flavor. The crust is thin but still generous. And on top of it all, it offered a generous portion of cheese. I baked it according to the instructions on the box and it baked up perfectly in the oven.
(2) The SECOND BEST frozen gluten-free pizza is the four-cheese gluten-free pizza by Sabatasso’s.
This pizza offers a generous portion of cheese and bakes up well. It tastes like I remember frozen pizza tasting without any weird textures or after tastes. On top of it all, I got this gluten-free frozen pizza for a steal at Costco – three pizzas come in one pack for about $20.
The following pizzas are listed in order of enjoyment, but I did not officially “rank” them:
About the Nima Sensor
The Nima Sensor is a portable gluten detecting device. You put a small portion of the food you’d like to test inside the test capsule, then put the capsule inside the Nima Sensor. Within three minutes the Nima Sensor will either display a smiley face (no gluten found) or a wheat sign (gluten found).
I was pleasantly surprised to find that ALL gluten-free labeled frozen pizzas passed the Nima Sensor test. I’ve heard Internet rumors that frozen pizza was exposed to cross contamination during the manufacturing process, but I’ve determined that it is not the case at all (and that you can’t believe everything you read on the Internet).
Now, when I’m craving pizza, I know just where I can find a safe pizza to eat. While it would be nice to enjoy pizza at a restaurant, the pain and suffering that might come with it just isn’t worth it. So, for now, I’m skipping restaurant pizza and enjoying these safe gluten-free frozen pizzas from the comfort of my own home.
