Newman’s Own Thin & Crispy Supreme Pizza

A supreme style, complete with roasted peppers, onions, Italian sausage, and uncured pepperoni. We loved the crisp multigrain crust. Also trim and tasty from Newman’s Own are their Roasted Vegetable and White Pizza varieties.

Pizzeria Italiana Organic 4 Cheese

Decadently creamy, with a hearty hit of Gouda, provolone, mozzarella, and Parmesan. Test panel pronounced it too good to be frozen. It offers a perfect base for salt-free toppers like veggies, sliced tomatoes, or a lightly dressed salad.

Whole Foods Market Buffalo Mozzarella with Cherry Tomatoes

This tasty pie keeps its ingredient list fresh, simple, and authentic. Plump cherry tomatoes nestle in a creamy layer of buffalo mozzarella—a scrumptious contrast to the hand-tossed crust. Top it off with fresh basil.

Balsamic-glazed portobello mushrooms, fire-roasted zucchini, and onions make for a sweet-salty balance. A hint of garlic accents the bright tomato sauce. Crust is cracker-crisp.
