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.

Freschetta GF pizza, Four Cheese, is absolutely, hands down, the best GF pizza I've found. In my area all of the pizza shops sell one......ugh.....and very high in price. Shop Rite has the Freschetta for 9.99. Less than take out. I add a few toppings and have a great pizza. My Friday night dinner "go to." ( Every other week.) I add a nice tossed salad and have a great meal with little effort.
