Food Villains #22: Frozen Pizza

Aside from Red Baron's pizza, I've never met a frozen pizza I truly enjoyed. With Pizza Pockets, you're at least expecting both the bun and filling to be soft, but with a frozen pizza you're hoping the crust will be crispy while the cheese and toppings will be nice and hot. It's rare that you get the perfect pizza when cooking frozen pizza, but you usually get either a soggy crust or molten lava cheese.

  • 200 Calories (It's a tiny little thing, but packed with calories)
  • 480 milligrams of sodium (roughly 25% of Sodium DV)
  • 8 grams of fat
The crust is made from nutritionless white flour, filled with additives to make it taste light and fluffy, and generally going to wreak havoc on your poor intestines. The greasy toppings give you a LOT of sodium, saturated fat, and trans fats. My advice: MYO pizza (Even Domino's is better than frozen pizza!)
