Ok...lets face it: most pizzas are bad diet plan items. But, a) eating in moderation; b) buying thin crusts and topping with vegetables and c) eating in smaller portions like having a salad ready to go with it : all these together help you enjoy something you probably love!
After evaluating 38 frozen pizzas (no super thick crusts were evaluated), the top 4 readily available frozen pizzas are (as it happens, they are all "all natural"):
Table 5: 4 cheese pizza
Pro: 4 cheeses make a great taste
Con: crust a little thicker than others + no wood fired oven crust (I think a con) and of all the pizzas tried, this has the lowest grams of food/point...meaning you're taking a big point hit for less food (13 grams food/point). An average sized portion will cost you ~14 points (half pizza- its small).
American Flatbread cheese & herb
Pro: wood fired oven crust making it taste so good!, 3 cheeses that taste great with herbs to make it even better!
Con: 16 grams food/point
Home Run Inn - ultra thin crust
Pro: Falls in the middle of all pizzas tested in grams/point at 19. Uses only mozzarella, but somehow it still maintains a lot of flavor. Toppings are lean.
Con: Crust is the worst of the 4 ...a little cracker-y (basically, you traded off crust for some yummy toppings as other pizzas are cheese only)
Targets Simply balanced 3 cheese pizza
Pro: This pizza is the overall winner in terms of how much food you get per WW point AND value (21g/point). Outstanding wood fired crust, 3 cheeses.
Just a feeling, but I think this may be our Mandia pizza many of us loved at Kroger (now gone), reformulated with sauces.
