“Pizza is a great choice for party guests,” says Jacquie Downey, Director of Sales and Marketing at Shindigz.com. “To help moms and dads deliver crowd-pleasing dinners, we conducted informal taste tests to discover the top five, tastiest, store-bought pizzas.”
We asked Moms and kids to suggest their favorite contenders. Online friends chimed in with recommendations. While not a scientific survey, this list gives a great sampling of what real people judged as their tastiest choices.
Nothing brings out opinions like asking tween girls about their favorite store-bought pizzas. Jack’s won the tween girl vote. The cheese was the key reason. While not fancy, young girls liked Jack’s pizza and moms liked the price.
Trader Joe’s private label, Margherita pizza received support as the best Italian-style pizza. It’s imported from Italy and delivers gourmet flair.
3) Newman’s Own Thin and Crispy
Even though Newman’s Own is a newcomer to the frozen pizza market, their thin crust was singled out for being very good when baked according to directions (425 degrees for 10-12 minutes). One commenter stated, “When done, it looks like the picture on the package and tastes good.”
Tie 1) DiGiorno and Freschetta
These market-leading frozen pizza makers were often named together as favorites and have earned the top spot in this casual survey. Mentions for their crusts and varied flavor combinations help set these two pizza makers apart from the crowd.
