Best Pre-Made Pizza Crusts to Buy Online

One of our Favorites

A delicious way to have homemade pizza in a pinch when you don’t have any fresh dough available. They’re about 12 inches and are made with wheat flour, so be aware of that. They also have kits available that include other ingredients, but we don’t recommend those. Come on!

Without a doubt, everyone knows that homemade pizza is better than store-bought. Even so, there are a lot of reasons to use store-bought pre-made pizza crusts. Maybe you decided to have a last-minute pizza night or are tired from a long week.

There is no shame in using store-bought pre-made pizza crusts. While we love homemade pizza dough, there are times when timing and convenience have us reaching for a pre-made crust. 

We have tried many different brands; some are really good, some are ok, and some we placed directly in the garbage. So in the spirit of sharing and helping others find good pre-made pizza crusts, we thought we would put together a list of our favorites, and because it’s 2022, all of these are available online. 

We divided our list into three sections: traditional, thin crust, and non-traditional. 

Traditional Pre-Made Pizza Crusts

Boboli, Original Pizza Crust

Boboli is the original store-bought pre-made pizza crust. The crust is the right balance of chewy with a light airiness, the consistency is perfect, and they taste great. Sometimes they are sold in a kit with pizza sauce which is doubly convenient.

We usually have our own homemade pizza sauce in the freezer, so we just grab these yummy crusts. Boboli also has personal-size crusts, and they offer thin crusts too. Unfortunately, they don’t offer deep-dish, but they should. We actually didn’t find any deep dish crusts on the market.

So if you are craving a Chicago deep-dish, you will need to get yourself to Chicago or get yourself in your kitchen and make it yourself.

Mama Mary’s Traditional Pizza Crust

While Boboli is our absolute favorite for traditional, not too thin, not too thick pizza crusts, Mama Mary’s is a close second choice. The dough has the right balance of chewy to crispy with a nice flavor.

We have used these several times, and the crust is strong enough to hold up to soggy ingredients like pineapple and artichokes but has enough texture to balance thick slices of pepperoni and melted cheese.

Thin Pre-Made Pizza Crusts

Molinaro’s Thin Crust Pizza Kit

If you are looking for a delicious thin-crust pizza, this is it. It’s light and crisp and comes with sauce packets, so all you need to do is put on your favorite toppings, making it a very easy pizza night.

On their website, they also offer deep-dish, cauliflower, zucchini, and organic crusts too. If you really want an easy dinner, Molinaro’s frozen pizzas are available at Costco. All you have to do is open the box and throw them in your oven; Molinaro’s takes care of the rest.

Golden Home Ultra Thin Pizza Crust

Probably the healthiest pre-made thin crust is Golden Home. We hadn’t even heard of the company before but decided to take a risk on this one, and it was good. The company boasts their pizza crusts are low-fat and low-carb pizza, but we only care about if it tastes good, and it does.

Pastorelli® Ultra Thin Pizza Crust

We really liked how thin these crusts were, perfect for making St.Louis-style pizza. They also make whole wheat crusts too. The only drawback to these is that you have to buy thirty at a time, which is a lot of pizza crust to have lying around your kitchen.

We ended up gifting some of these crusts to our friends because it was a lot. But if you have a big family, eat pizza for every meal (no judgment), or have extra freezer space and like a crispy, crunchy crust, this is a great option. 

Non-Traditional Pre-Made Pizza Crusts

We decided to include non-traditional pizza crusts on the list because nowadays, many people have dietary restrictions or follow specific diets like gluten-free, vegan, keto, and plant-based, just to name a few. We wanted to include some variety in our list of pre-made pizza crusts.

Rustic Crust Classic Sourdough Pizza Crust

For many people, sourdough is easier to digest than regular flour, so we were glad to see that these are available, and then we were even happier to report that they taste good too.

Sourdough often has a bit of a tanginess, and this had the perfect amount of tanginess but without being overpowering. If you like sourdough, then you will definitely want to give this a try.

Angelic Bakehouse Flatzza Pack

Angelic Bakehouse makes these 7-grain sprouted flatbread pizza crusts that are so good. We heard about the company through a friend and decided to give them a try, and we are so glad we did. They are very thin and make a good and healthy pizza

If you are looking to get more fiber in your diet, try these out. The company claims the product has a couple of months shelf life, so make sure to use them quickly or just pop them in your freezer.

Rich’s Home Zucchini Pizza Crusts

This company has several different types of pizza crusts, from cauliflower to zucchini to vegan. They have something for every diet. We tried the cauliflower and zucchini crust which were both really good.

To be honest, once we had our sauce, toppings, melted cheese, and dipping sauces, they tasted great, and the texture was chewy. There was not an overpowering taste of zucchini or cauliflower. 

If you are gluten-free or vegan, you need to know about this company. Of course, you can make your own gluten-free pizza at home, but this is convenient and tasty. They even make focaccia and unique broccoli and cheddar gluten-free crusts. We love their creativity and their crust.
