Frozen pizza is one of those foods that’s just so convenient to have on hand for emergency snacking. It's also great for meals when more complicated cooking just doesn’t fit the schedule. Cooking a frozen pizza is simple, and some might even fit your toaster oven, so when the parents are out for the evening, teens, older kids, or the babysitter can easily cook a pie for an after-school snack or an evening treat.
They’re versatile, too. When you’ve got a few frozen pizzas in the freezer, you can easily customize them for individual tastes by adding extra toppings, cheese, or a drizzle of hot sauce to suit your taste. While you can certainly find frozen pizzas at your local grocery store, sometimes the brands and varieties you love best aren’t available, so buying online makes sense. You can stock up on those favorites, so they’re handy any time you want them.
The downside to buying frozen foods online is that shipping can be a bit expensive, since the products need to arrive quickly so they stay frozen all the way to your door. To offset some of that shipping cost, these are sold in larger quantities, so make sure you’ve got plenty of freezer space before the pies arrive. Either that or have the oven preheated and ready to cook for a crowd.

Best Overall: DiGiorno Pizzeria! Quattro Formaggi/Four Cheese
DiGiorno makes many different varieties of frozen pizza, but this pie wins for its rustic-looking, hand-tossed crust, its sauce made from crushed vine-ripened tomatoes, and its delicious blend of four types of cheese (fontina, mozzarella, parmesan, and Pecorino Romano). Also, with just crust, sauce, and cheese, you have the option of dressing it up with your family's favorite toppings, from anchovies and pepperoni to pineapple and ham. However, picky eaters can rest assured that it's just as delicious baked plain.

Best Vegetarian: SKINNYPIZZA Cheese Pizza Frozen
Super-thin crust with both mozzarella and provolone cheeses make this a great basic pizza for everyone. The fact that it’s just 310 calories per half-pizza makes it perfect for anyone who is counting calories. It’s also a great blank slate for anyone who wants to add their own mushrooms, onions, green peppers, or olives. This is a pack of four pizzas that ships frozen, so you don’t have to worry about using it right away. Gluten-free pizzas and other topping options are also available.

Best Deep Dish: 6 Lou Malnati's Chicago-style Deep Dish Pizzas
These are authentic deep dish pizzas, straight from Chicago and ready for baking. This combo includes six cheese pizzas and six with pepperoni, but other combinations are also available, as well as fewer pizzas—but we think the 6-pizza option is the best value. The pizzas are 9 inches in diameter, which is smaller than standard frozen pizzas, but the thickness makes up for it.
When ordering, these will ship on the next available Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, for delivery in two days, so they arrive frozen and ready to stash in the freezer. This includes an aluminum pizza dish for baking the pizza, but some users noted that they used a heavier pizza pan, which they felt produced even better crust results.
Deep dish pizza is completely different from most and has an interesting history. We can tell you all about it, so you’ll sound like a pizza expert on the next pizza night.

Best Splurge: Truffle Pizza with Mushrooms and Black Italian Truffle
Not your usual pizza, this one is topped with truffles and mushrooms for a special treat. The truffles are supplied by Urbani, which is known for its truffle products. Urbani partnered with an Italian frozen pizza company to create this special pizza that’s a real treat. This is a 14-ounce pizza, so there’s plenty for sharing. For even more indulgence, there is an artichoke and truffle version and a cherry tomato and truffle version.Continue to 5 of 6 below.

Best Variety Pack: Nutrisystem Pizza Party 3-Pack
Nutrisystem may not be the first name you think of when frozen pizza is mentioned, but it's certainly a brand expert when it comes to frozen foods for people on a diet. This three-pack includes pizzas in three different varieties: Italian Sausage and Turkey Pepperoni Pizza, Chicken and Bacon Ranch Pizza, and a Pepperoni Pizza Melt.
If those don’t appeal, Nutrisystem has a range of other pizza flavors, as well. These are small pizzas at less than 6 inches in diameter if you'd rather purchase them individually.

Best Cauliflower Crust: Cali'flour Foods Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza Crusts
Cali-flour Foods is making a name for itself in the world of cauliflower pizza crusts. This single box includes two super-thin cauliflower crusts you can top and bake at home. The original Italian version includes herbs to give it extra flavor, but a plain version and one with jalapeno are also available for variety. The single pack is great when you’re trying this out, but if you’re already a fan, there are three-packs and six-packs, each with two crusts per box.
