Review: Sabatasso's Pizzeria Gluten-Free Pizza

I shop at Costco for some of our staples and love when I find new gluten-free items on the shelves. On this last trip I found frozen gluten-free pizza from Sabatasso’s Pizzeria. This may be a new addition to our Costco, or it may have been there for a while, as I typically don’t pay much attention to that area since we can’t eat the regular pizza.

Sabatasso’s Pizzeria Gluten-Free Pizza is $11.89/package, which contains 2 – four cheese pizzas. The product has the seal of the Celiac Sprue Association which means the manufacturer agrees to adhere to the CSA’s standards.

The box recommends baking the pizza directly on the oven rack, but I used a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet since the crust is so thin. This worked well and helped keep the crust from getting soggy. Keep a close on so that they pizza doesn’t overcook. I really think this pizza tastes great and the crust has a great texture and can see purchasing it again in the future, especially at that price!

Sabatasso’s Pizzeria is a subsidiary of The Schwan Food Company, which is coincidentally the parent company of Freschetta. Freschetta just debuted a frozen gluten-free pizza earlier this year as well. If you take a close look at the picture on the boxes, the pizza is just about identical, which explains why they taste a lot alike. The difference is the Costco version is almost 50% less expensive.

Have you tried Costco’s Sabatasso’s Pizzeria Gluten-Free Pizza?

    Bought this a while back at Costco, then went back in the next few weeks and it was replaced by Udi’s GF frozen pizza. While I love Udi’s, this Sabatasso’s was the best I’ve ever had. Anyone know where else it can be bought or their Costco still has it by chance?

    LOVE IT. BEST GF PIZZA OUT THERE! I LIKE BAKING IT IN A TOASTER OVEN THEN PUT ON TOP RACK AND BROIL IT FOR 3 MINUTES. LET IT SET FOR 5 MINUTES, SLICE IT AND GOBBLE IT DOWN! UUUMMMMMM GOOD!

  5. Karen says:

    This is hands down the best gluten free product I’ve ever purchased. Really good!

    This pizza is great. We will often add some onion and sausage (cooked on the stovetop first) as well as some more cheese, which makes it even more tasty and filling!

    I loved, loved, loved this pizza!! But after a short time getting it at the Costco in Brooklyn NY..it was gone. There is NO gluten free pizza at that Costco. So dissapointing. They really need to offer more gluten free foods. I hear that in the West Coast…the Costco carries gluten free pastas..the ones in the refrigerator…but not in NY.

    The best GF pizza yet! I do not Udis and a few others. Plus for the price the portions are supper small. Not this pizza great size and price!! I buy the cheese and add my own toppings!

    It has disappeared from our closest Costco in Portland, OR. it was my mom’s favorite. She’s had severe Celiac Disease for over 50 years. The gluten free penne pasta also went away. Disappointing, to say the least. Life is difficult enough, caring for a 93 year old, now I have to research where, and how, to buy those items.

    I was wondering if anyone knows if it is made in a gluten free facility? Thanks!

  11. stephani says:

    This is by far the BEST gluten free pizza EVER!

    Where else can I get your gfree product in Albuquerque? Costco only carries the regular and the bbq chicken gfree which my child will not eat. I need the gfree cheese please.

  13. Janine says:

    Love, love, love this pizza crust. I need to know where else I can find it. My Costco stopped offering it because of low sales. I live in a smaller market. Has anyone asked their local grocery store to stock Sabatasso’s GF pizza crust? Major problem here…
    Thanks!

    I have been Gluten- free for 9 years. I’ve had a few good GF pizza’s…this is not one of them. While the cheese & sauce are really good the crust (both prior to baking and after it was baked) was so hard my husband could not cut it with a large, sharp knife. It went in the garbage. perhaps we got a bad batch but since it comes in a 3-pack at Costco in Redding, CA it’s too expensive to experiment again.

    Last weekend I was unhappy to see that in our local Costco the display- cooking and giving it samples for the Sabatasso’s gluten free pizza there was obvious cross contamination with the regular nongluten free small personal pizzas. The lady server was cooking the wheat pizzas on the grill above the gluten free slices, same toaster oven obviously, no cleaning of the grills, cut the two kinds on the same surface with the same knife, and used the same utensil to take out and put in the two kinds of pizzas. Only one set of utensils, and no segregation of the areas the pizzas were cut which is necessary to prevent ingestion of Gluten. I talked to the vendor co manager and he promised to bring it up with his company, but he would not change the situation then, which really would have been easy. I emailed his company which never responded despite his promises they would. I spoke with someone in the Costco office about it. Outrageous that a company introducing gluten free item to the public is making them sick!!!!!! Stone Age!! Negligence to be sure.
