6 Frozen Pizzas That Taste Amazing And Aren’t Horrible For You

Some nights, cooking a three-course meal for dinner just isn’t in the cards and there’s nothing more appealing than popping a frozen pizza in the oven instead and calling it quits. But a lot of the options you’ll find in the grocery store’s frozen aisle aren’t exactly the picture of health.

That’s why we did some digging to find healthy frozen pizza options that also happen to taste pretty damn satisfying. We tried to pick pies with 300 calories or less per serving because we all know we won’t stop at just one serving of pizza. We also aimed for each option to keep the fat content at 12 grams or less, the sodium content at 550 milligrams or less (which is tough for frozen pizza) and the protein content at 10 grams or more.

Who’s ready to dig in? There’s a flavor on this list for everyone’s taste buds.

1. California Pizza Kitchen Crispy Thin Crust Hawaiian Recipe

  • Calories: 250
  • Fat: 9 grams (4 saturated)
  • Sodium: 470 milligrams
  • Protein: 13 grams

Transport yourself to a tropical island from the comfort of your own kitchen with this thin crust Hawaiian pizza from California Pizza Kitchen. The calories are modest, the fat content is entirely reasonable, and the sodium content is the lowest on this list. Plus, 13 grams of protein is nothing to gawk at. From its restaurants to the frozen food aisle, CPK is on its game.

2. Newman’s Own Organic Margherita Thin & Crispy Pizza

  • Calories: 260
  • Fat: 9 grams (4 saturated)
  • Sodium: 470 milligrams
  • Protein: 11 grams

It turns out that Newman’s Own can do a lot more than make a solid salad dressing. This organic, thin crust Margherita pizza checks all the boxes for us. The only thing that ranks it lower than CPK is its slightly smaller protein count (due to the lack of Canadian bacon) and a measly 10 additional calories. Should we just call this one even?

3. Amy’s Kitchen Pesto Pizza

  • Calories: 310
  • Fat: 12 grams (3.5 saturated)
  • Sodium: 480 milligrams
  • Protein: 12 grams

Oh, how we love Amy’s Kitchen. And this frozen pie certainly doesn’t disappoint. It’s covered in the perfect amount of mozzarella cheese, garlicky pesto and tomato slices to feel both indulgent and healthy at the same time. The calories are a little on the high side, but with the fat within reason and the sodium and protein content on point, we easily give this pizza third place.

4. Tombstone Original Deluxe Pizza

A post shared by Gwoww (@gwowwramon) on

  • Calories: 260
  • Fat: 11 grams (4.5 saturated)
  • Sodium: 510 milligrams
  • Protein: 13 grams

We kind of expect the classic frozen pizza brands to fare not so well in the nutrition category, but this deluxe option from Tombstone did a surprisingly good job (especially considering that sausage is one of its toppings). The calories are entirely reasonable, the fat is lower than several pies on this list, the sodium is in check and the protein exceeds expectations. What else could you want?

5. DiGiorno Ultra Thin Four Cheese Pizza

  • Calories: 280
  • Fat: 12 grams (6 saturated)
  • Sodium: 560 milligrams
  • Protein: 13 grams

We couldn’t leave this list without an option for the pure cheese lovers out there. And DiGiorno’s thin crust, four-cheese pizza definitely hits the spot. Despite all the cheesy goodness, the calories and fat are acceptable, and the sodium is only a tad bit high. Plus, we think it kinda makes up for it with the added boost of protein. Good job, DiGiorno.

6. Whole Foods Market Marinated Grilled Vegetable Pizza

  • Calories: 260
  • Fat: 10 grams (4 saturated)
  • Sodium: 720 milligrams
  • Protein: 10 grams

Surprisingly, Whole Foods comes in last on our list because it just couldn’t get their shit together in regards to sodium. Come on, 720 milligrams is kinda crazy. But we didn’t want to swear them off entirely — especially with their whole wheat crust and marinated grilled veggies. Plus, the fat, calories and protein all do what we need them to do. We just can’t help and appreciate the irony here.
