Know before you buy it, is the Freschetta gluten-free frozen pizza worth the money? Let's find out just how this gluten-free pizza stacks up.
When it comes to gluten-free pizza, it's usually hit or miss. I will admit that I am pretty picky when it comes to gluten-free pizza, though. Finding not only gluten-free pizza that tastes good but is also as simple to make because pizza nights are supposed to be easy; well, it isn't always easy.
Is it actually gluten-free?
Yes, the Freschetta gluten-free frozen pizzas are actually gluten-free. According to their site, Freschetta says that their gluten-free pizzas are certified gluten-free by the National Celiac Association. This makes them safe to consume for those on a gluten-free diet.
The Freschetta gluten-free pizza crust is made with rice and tapioca starches.
Note that while the Freschetta gluten-free pizzas are gluten-free, they do contain dairy as well as soy.
Freschetta gluten-free pizza flavors.
According to their site, Freschetta actually makes four different varieties of gluten-free pizza.
- Four Cheese
- Margherita with Roasted Garlic
- Spinach and Roasted Mushrooms
Personally, I have only seen and tried the four cheese and pepperoni varieties of the Freschetta pizzas.
What I liked.
- This frozen gluten-free pizza was pretty easy to find. - I live in a smaller area, and I can find it at all of my local stores.
- Easy to cook. - Cooking a Freschetta gluten-free pizza only took about 10 minutes which means dinner is ready fast.
- Flavor and texture - While the flavor didn't blow me away, it wasn't bad. The texture of the crust did get crispy, which is better than a soggy gluten-free pizza crust.
What I didn't like.
- Kind of small. - This is more of a frozen food in general thing. The box of Freschetta gluten-free pizza says it has four servings, but I tend to make a salad or some other vegetables to go alongside it. If you're just serving this, then I would say it probably serves closer to 2-3 for the average-sized adult.
- A little expensive. - As with most gluten-free convenience foods, the prices are higher than their gluten-filled counterparts. The Freschetta gluten-free pizza typically runs around $10.00 at my local store. It's certainly not as expensive as some other brands, but it still can add up when feeding a family.
- Read the box for full instructions.
- Cook to your liking.
- Add additional toppings. - My kids love me to add mushrooms and olives to their pepperoni pizza.
Personally, I still prefer the flavors and textures of homemade gluten-free pizza.
But yes, the Freschetta gluten-free pizza is actually gluten-free. While it isn't the best gluten-free pizza, it is a good one to be able to grab at the store when you want something easy to make on busy days.
