Freschetta Brick Oven Pepperoni Pizza ($6.80, 21.75 oz. serves 4)
Testers "could really taste the different cheeses" — mozzarella and Fontina — in this delicious pizza. "Rich tomatoey flavor" in the sauce enhanced the "pizzeria taste" of this pie, which tied for first place with our next entry.

Red Baron Fire Baked Pepperoni Pizza ($5.60, 19.86 oz. serves 4)
This "spicy," "smoky," and "peppery" pie wowed our panel. With its "puffy crust," a "crisp bottom," and "plenty of cheese," what's not to love?

Stouffer's Pepperoni French Bread Pizza ($3.30, 11.25 oz. serves 2)
Tasters didn't prefer the bread-y crust or the extremely herbal sauce, but it had the familiarity of a childhood snack.

365 Everyday Value Uncured Pepperoni Pizza ($5, 13.9 oz serves 3; Whole Foods)
The good, thick crust had toppings too salty and greasy for our testers.

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Artisan Creations Stone-Fired Pepperoni Pizza ($3.30, 6.11 oz serves 1)
This pizza had tons of oregano flavor but overall was too soft and gummy for everyone. It may have had a disadvantage because the instructions require microwave cooking, while others can be baked in the oven. It might be fine, however, for those watching their fat intake.

Healthy Choice Pepperoni French Bread Pizza ($1.90 - $2.40, 6 oz. serves 1)
Another microwave sample. The French bread provided a very doughy crust, but no one was wowed by the flavor. However, for those on a diet, it might be worth considering.

South Beach Living Pepperoni Pizza ($3.50, 6.3 oz. serves 1)
Bland cheese and pepperoni atop mushy crust did not bode well for this low-carb microwave contender.
