    Anybody that maintains a gluten-free diet might find it hard to find pizzas that they can eat, especially frozen pizza. If you have the room, it's a very good idea to keep a gluten free pizza in the freezer for those times when an unexpected gluten-free guest lets you know that they can't eat the meal you've prepared. If you have kids and host a lot of pizza parties, this is especially thoughtful since it prevents that child from feeling left out. 

    After testing a big array of gluten-free pizzas, these were the favorites. The differences between them were notable, and both flavor and texture really came into play. Most of these frozen pizzas can be found at most major grocery stores. If you have trouble finding them, check online or ask your grocery store to consider stocking them. 

    Note: Some of the gluten-free products were received from the manufacturers, some were purchased. This had no bearing on the results of the article.

    Ian's Gluten Free Uncured Pepperoni French Bread Pizza

    (c) Ian's

    If you’ve been longing for French bread pizza, then this is for you. The other big dietary claim Ian’s can make is that there is no milk (casein) in the pizza, so it’s ok for those with dairy allergies. Therefore, the plain cheese version is also vegan. People who are allergic to both dairy and gluten probably never thought they’d have pizza again. Cheese, pepperoni, and supreme versions are available from this brand.
