Summary:

The allergen-free convenience is hard to beat with these handy heat and serve pizzas. We overall enjoyed them, polishing off one pizza between the two of us without coming up for air. That said, they do taste like frozen pizza without the bold flavors of fresh, and are a little bit of an indulgence for the pocket book.

While frozen pizzas aren’t something that we miss in our house, I have to admit that it was kind of nice to have a couple Daiya dairy free frozen pizzas on hand.

I received a couple of free product trial coupons for Daiya dairy free frozen pizza, and decided to give their two newest flavors a trial: Supreme Pizza and Pizza Bianca.

The Bianca was LOADED with roasted garlic – a bit too much for us, but great for warding off vampires this time of year. Aside from the garlic, it was generously coated with Daiya mozzarella shreds, had a fair amount of cooked spinach, and a small smattering of sliced mushrooms – all atop a thin crispy crust (that didn’t shout gluten-free). We liked it, but found the flavor a little underwhelming. Aside from the garlic, it was a rather mild pizza, relatively speaking. I’m also not sure how they make the cheese alternative look so stretchy in their pictures. It has a nice, gooey consistency, but I wouldn’t expect the super-stretch you get with traditional dairy cheese.

We had the Supreme late in the evening, so sorry, no picture! It looks similar to the Bianca above, but with a central smattering of more boldly colored toppings and a red rather than white sauce peaking out from beneath. The toppings were pleasant, and honestly, I don’t think either of us even noticed that the “meat” was vegan. That said, with a supreme-style pizza, I expect a smack in the face with flavor. Like the Bianca, the flavor was mellow – good, pleasant, but almost a little lackluster.

Overall, we enjoyed the Daiya dairy free frozen pizzas, devouring every last bite (don’t believe them that these little pizzas serve three!). But as Tony pointed out, “they taste like frozen pizza.” A nice top allergen-free convenience to have on hand if you can pick some up on sale, but certainly no substitute for a freshly made pie.

  1. I get one of these pizzas about once a year, which is apparently how long it takes me to forget how awful it is. Got one today after getting home from a trip and not having much to cook. The crust, if it can even be called crust, ruins the entire pizza. There’s just nothing to it, and it tastes like what I can only imagine cardboard tastes like. I’ve tried baking it too long, too short, exactly what the directions recommend, and it doesn’t seem to matter. It comes out the same every time – bendy and chewy, in all of the ways you don’t want your food to reflect those words. Also, now that I’ve been eating nut cheese, I forgot how much the coagulated oil version of cheese grosses me out and gives me a tummy ache. I think I’m going to put a piece of the box on my fridge and write “never again!” on it so I’ll have a reminder. I miss pizza as much as the next dairy free person, but putting myself through another one of these is some sort of twisted self-torture.

  2. We tired the Daiya pizza, and it was probably to grossest thing gluten-free that I have had to date. Even our dog spit the crust out. Would definitely never recommend this pizza.

    I missed pizza so much after cutting out dairy since having my daughter. I tried this and expected the worst. But it was amazing!!! I had the cheese lovers. So good. Will definitely continue buying

  4. i think it should be pointed out that they taste like… make that worse than… a $2 frozen pizza. I’m not a fan of cheese substitutes but regardless of that the rest of the this pizza was just awful… the sauce is not noticeable and the crust is like cardboard. Amy’s pizzas are MUCH better.
