Big surprise. Miscellaneous ingredient-free food items (gluten-free, fat-free, sugar-free, etc) are usually pale immitations of the real (or maybe “standard” is the right word) thing. This pizza holds up just fine. Not as good as the best non-gluten-free (double-negative, I know) pizzas out there, but as good as you’d expect if you randomly grabbed a pizza off the shelf without checking the brand.
The issue is the price. I paid $9.38 for a 17oz pie. That’s $.55/oz, or 66.7% more expensive than the average frozen pizza. Although not the most expensive brand I’ve tried, the other brands at or above this price range are significantly tastier.
I don’t fault Daiya. I’ve noticed that gluten-free pizzas are expensive and imagine it has something to do with the ingredients and/or process of making such pizzas being more expensive. However, the higher than average price tag combined with not higher than average taste means I cannot recommend this to anyone lacking a gluten-allergy.
Purchased at HEB for $9.38. 17oz, $.55/oz.
