The Frozen Pizza Taste Test: We Tried 12 Brands and Ranked Them — Shopping

We are living in a frozen-pizza-lover's paradise. Walk into any supermarket and you'll be dazzled by the bevy of options with various styles of crust (thick, thin, and even cheese-stuffed!) and a bounty of meat and veggie toppings. Just picking one to toss in your cart can make your head spin.

If you're anything like me, you have a stash of frozen pizzas in your freezer for when you're either short on time or are too tired to deal with pots and pans. I usually stick to the same brands out of habit (Trader Joe's and Amy's are my favorites), but I was curious if I was missing out on a superior frozen pizza experience. So, I tried a dozen kinds to see how they measured up.

Cauliflower crusts are all the rage these days. They're made from vegetables, after all, and are a low-carb option for those looking to cut back or who can't eat gluten. Trader Joe's brought a pre-made cauliflower pizza crust to its supermarkets earlier this summer, which quickly gained cult-favorite status, and now they're going the extra mile. The grocer is back with a ready-to-bake gluten-free cheese pizza featuring a cauliflower crust.


Recipe: Farmers Market Pizza — Farmers Market Suppers

During the summer, the best time for pizza night is whatever day you hit the farmers market. Whether you shop with a plan or simply buy whatever looks good in the moment, this template teaches you how to transform your haul of fresh veggies and herbs into an irresistible pizza that tastes like summer. It will be cheesy and indulgent, thanks to a layer of herby ricotta and stringy mozzarella, and balanced with a mess of fresh toppings.


This Is the Wine I Always Drink with Pizza — Wine and Dine

My husband and I enjoy pizza night at home almost every Friday night, and it's a tradition we don't plan on shaking anytime soon. It usually starts with sipping Americanos and munching on marinated olives on the couch while the pizza stone preheats in the oven. Then, as we assemble our pies, we pop open a bottle of wine. It's the same kind of wine each and every time because, in my opinion, it's the best bottle you can drink with just about any kind of pizza.

Summer and the thrill and ease of eating outside means that we should all be grilling as much as possible. So to help make that possible we're sharing these super-easy chicken and pesto flatbreads. They start with my favorite shortcut, pre-made naan bread, and get topped with basil pesto, grilled chicken breast, and corn. Make these for a quick weeknight dinner or appetizer from the grill and count on them to be done in as little as 15 minutes.


The 5 Best Pizza Places in Philly, According to a Local — Summer Vacations for Food-Lovers

Philly is known for its gooey cheesesteaks and soft pretzels, but we've been known to sling a mean pizza pie, too. Within our city limits you'll encounter a range of styles, from wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizzas to Brooklyn-style thick-crust pizzas.

My husband, who was born and raised in Philly, insists that no roundup of Philly's best pizza places would be complete without mentioning two legendary pizza institutions: Tacconelli's Pizzeria, a brick-oven pizzeria in the Port Richmond neighborhood, and South Street's Lorenzo & Sons, where $3.50 gets you a humungous, no-frills New York-style slice of cheese pizza served on two paper plates.

While many adore these old-school places, there's no comparing them to the newer pizza restaurants on the scene, at least in my humble opinion. Not only do these new pizzerias have serious accolades, but each place either honors classic pizza traditions or pushes the envelope, elevating the art of the pie.

Here are five places that are currently making the most transcendent, best-reviewed pizzas in Philly.
