Best Dairy-Free Frozen Pizzas: Top 7 Vegan Pies Most Recommended By Foodies

If you follow a milk-free diet, you no longer have to avoid frozen pizzas. There are more choices than ever at the grocery store. Traditional cheese is replaced with vegan cheese alternatives made from ingredients like nuts, soy, coconut oil, nutritional yeast, and various seasonings to mimic the flavor and texture of cheese. But which are the best dairy-free frozen pizzas? Luckily, we’ve done the research, so you don’t have to waste money trying them — only to toss out the ones you don’t like.

How much pizza do you think you eat every year? A new poll finds most of us underestimate our love for pizza. The average
American eats enough pizza each year to stuff a full-sized suitcase. As for how we like to eat our slices, a quarter of us eat it tip-first, followed by crust-first, and then folding it in half. Eight percent admit they eat pizza with a knife and fork.

No matter how you eat your pizza, milk-free versions often have fewer calories and lower fat content, making them a more health-conscious alternative. They are also ideal for those who are lactose intolerant or have a sensitivity to lactose, a sugar found in milk. On the flip side, dairy-free pizzas don’t have as much protein, calcium, or Vitamin D as their dairy counterparts.

Whatever your reason is for wanting a dairy-free pie, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice taste. Fortunately, the market has responded with everything from classic margheritas with melty, dairy-free cheese to more exotic varieties topped with veggies, meat substitutes, and even plant-based cheeses. In the quest to find the best dairy-free frozen pizzas, we’ve explored a variety of brands and flavors, considering factors like crust texture, sauce richness, quality of toppings, and, of course, overall taste.

The List: Best Dairy-Free Frozen Pizza, According to Experts

 

1. Amy’s Vegan Margherita Pizza

The Beet says “If you love a plain cheesy pizza without a lot of whistles and bells, this one hits the spot and you could fool the most discerning cheese lover by not even telling them it’s made of non-dairy cheese.”

According to Six Storeys, “The pizza’s magical concoction of organic basil and garlic tied together with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil transported me to the Italian countryside with every bite. The delectable vegan cheese melted on an exquisite gluten-free crust, creating an amalgamation of flavors so good it would make a dairy aficionado give it a try.”

Make It Dairy Free writes, “We liked this one overall when it comes to comparing it to the others.”

2. Daiya Cheese Lover’s

The Beet says, “Daiya’s crust is the crunchiest crust of them all. If you like your pizza well done, grab this from the frozen aisle section. The cheese didn’t melt the way that we wanted but we loved all the combos of mozzarella and cheddar. If you have any sort of allergy, this choice of pizza is a great brand since it is free of dairy, soy, gluten, fish, eggs, and nuts.”

Sporked says, “At the risk of sounding like a 1990s commercial for some kind of diet dessert for ladies, this pie is sinfully gooey. The crust isn’t particularly flavorful, but this is like that good (if not terribly nuanced) cafeteria pizza you’ve been craving since you graduated from middle school. And besides being dairy free, it’s also gluten and soy free.”

According to VegOut, “Daiya has the hookup on gluten-free, vegan frozen pizza!”

3. Tattooed Chef Plant Based 2 Cheese Pizza

Sporked says, “Like, honestly, they could call it a 16-cheese pizza and no one would know the difference—it’s all water, oil, and starch—but Tattooed Chef is better than that! Just like Daiya, they went with creamy mozzarella- and cheddar-inspired shreds on this pie, but I’d say opt for this pizza if you’re into cauliflower crust pizza like I am.”

VegOut adds, “Tattooed Chef is coming in hot with the vegan frozen pizza! This brand stocks three cruelty-free ‘za flavors. Choose from vegetable, pepperoni, and cheese. Oh, and these inclusive pies are also gluten-free and made with a cauliflower crust.”

According to Pick Frozen Foods, “The crust was thin and crispy, and the toppings were flavorful and plentiful. Overall, I would definitely recommend this frozen vegan pizza to anyone looking for a quick and easy meal that is both delicious and nutritious.”

4. Blackbird Supreme Pizza

Make It Dairy Free says, “The taste of the ingredients, cheese, pizza sauce on this one was great. The crust was thicker than the others and had the perfect balance of soft and crunchy texture. This was on the top of our list. There are other varieties also available.”

5. Banza Plant-Based Cheese Pizza

According to The Beet, “Banza’s Plant-Based Pizza is made with chickpea-based crust and Follow Your Heart cheese that melts like the real thing. Banza pizza contains 10 grams of protein and 56 grams of carbs. Banza’s plant-based pizza makes a great meal that exceeds expectations.”

This is precisely what happened when the ever-popular chickpea pasta brand Banza decided to launch its offerings of frozen pizzas. This pizza not only manages to successfully balance taste and nutrition but makes it a thrilling experience.”

6. American Flatbread Vegan Harvest

The Beet writes, “Vegan flatbreads can be hard to come by but luckily, American Flatbread has us covered. The Vegan Harvest flatbread tastes fresh and is restaurant-quality pizza. The cheese alternative was perfectly melty and creamy. We especially loved the garlic and fresh herbs that were all over the flatbread.”

Plant-based options include the Vegan Harvest, Vegan Meat Lovers, Vegan Pepperoni, and our personal favorite—Farmers’ Tomato Pie. It’s the vibrant bruschetta and balsamic topping for us!”

7. Sweet Earth’s Veggie Lovers

“If you like to load the veggies on your pizza, this one is for you,” writes The Beet. “This pizza has the cleanest ingredients and has broccoli, corn, brussels sprouts, and mushrooms on top. The cheese doesn’t melt well but the veggie overload makes up for it. Keep this pizza in the oven a few minutes longer to make the crust crispier.”
