Product Review: Pizza Fit 'n Free - Fat Free Pizza!

A few weeks ago I got an email from Robyn after she listened to my podcast about Whole Wheat Pizza Dough. She wanted to bring Pizza Fit ‘n Free to my attention–a fat free pizza. I immediately requested samples so I could review for the site. It’s pizza people. PIZZA. You know how I feel about pizza. I even devoted a complete page with my pizza inspired creations.

The company was nice enough to send me a few samples. I have to admit–I didn’t have high hopes. I’m not the biggest frozen pizza fan. I’d much rather make my own on homemade whole grain pizza dough or Trader Joe’s whole wheat dough. But.. MAN.. it would be nice to have some single serves to pull out for a quick meal whenever the pizza urge strikes–which, for me, is often.

The Pizza Fit ‘n Free is a good size–about that of a standard tortilla pizza. I was actually surprised at the amount of cheese on top. Considering it’s "fat free" I just assumed there’d be minimal cheese.

According to the cooking instructions, you are suppose to cook the pizza frozen in a 400 degree oven for 8-10 minutes. So I fired up the oven and got working on my toppings. You didn’t think I’d leave the the pizza as is, did you? :) I decided on peppers and turkey pepperoni.

Pizza Fit 'n Free - Fat Free Pizza - the toppings

The company only offers plain pizzas and they actually encourage you to top them yourself. There’s even a whole page devoted to topping ideas straight from their customers.

Even though cooking instructions said 8-10 minutes I cooked mine for about 12. It came out looking like this…

Crispy crust, gooey cheese and complete pizza goodness!

I was seriously surprised how good it was. The cheese was amazing! I’ve never seen fat free cheese melt like real cheese before. I didn’t think it was possible! It’s why I don’t buy fat free cheese, ever. According to the web site…

How is your cheese fat free?
We have developed a way to process the fat out of the cheese, similar to the way they process the fat out of skim milk. The cheese is 100% real dairy mozzarella cheese with no fat substitutes.

Curious… but I must admit tasty.

The crust was ok, but like the cheese, it surprised me. I didn’t expect to get that "crunch" when I bit into it but I did. It made each bite very satisfying.

Nutritionally we’re looking at 248 calories, 0g of fat, 41g of carbs, 3g of fiber and 20g of protein per pie. That’s 4 old WWP and 6 new WWPP. Add a ton of "free" toppings and or a side salad and you got yourself a great pizza centric meal for pretty low points.

You guys know I feel about making your own meals–I do devote a whole site to it–but I’m also a big believer in planning and convenience. There will be times when you don’t feel like cooking dinner. When you are in a rush and have no desire to make a lunch for work the next day. There will even be times you just feel like having some pizza. It happens. :) When it does I’d rather have a few of these in my back pocket then pick up the phone and order in or hit a drive thru.

That’s why I’m joining the Pizza Fit ‘n Free affiliate program. I love when I find products I like and that I can work with. That means if you are interested in trying the fat free pizza and purchase it by clicking a link from my site I’ll earn 10% commission. I only partner with companies and recommend products that I have tried and enjoyed. It’s one way for me to earn money through the site, especially now that this is my JOB! :) Click here to check out other ways to shop and support Roni’s Weigh.

All that being said, I really do love the pizza, of course I do, again… it’s PIZZA! :) Has anyone else tried it before?

    Wow – this sounds delicious and we as well keep pizza in freezer for quick meals, for ‘those’ days. We add our toppings as well. Will have to check into availability in Canada. Thanks for great post.

    Sounds so good… yum! Zero grams of fat per pizza? I can just picture you in my mind, crying out of joy and laughing histerically while eating it LOL

    I’ve definitely heard of it before, though I’d never tried it. I’m definitely inspired, though! That WHOLE pizza for 6 points??? Love.

    Never heard of this before- wonder if I could find it in my area. There seems to be a real lack of these types of things! :(

    Well you CAN make your own, you just don’ t want to. ;)

    Sodium not too too bad.. 380mg for the pie.

    I’ve never had this pizza but when I was doing weight watchers I really wanted to try it. I love pizza and was looking for something (points friendly) to consume.

    My husband is now doing WW and pizza happens to be one of his favorite meals. Just might have to look into these,again, for him.

    I have to admit that I rolled my eyes just a little =) when I read “fat free pizza.” That was one of my biggest problems with weight watchers, the fat free movement. There is A LOT of research showing that the fast free movement has made us fatter. Most fat free foods have to substitute taste in some way since there is no fat in the meal so they add fillers, additives, processed chemicals, sugar and carbs. They are highly processed foods. I don’t know it might just be me, but I feel like pizza should have fat in it. I would rather make my own that is healthy and has ingrediants I can stand behind and have the fat than those that are hightly processed. But, I do understand where you are coming from with the mindset that if you don’t have time to make your own pizza this would be a better option that other freezer brands. I hope I have not offended you or your job opportunities. I just wanted to give a differing opinion on fat free foods. =)

    Lindsay – NOT AT ALL! And I totally agree. Fat free means nothing. But I do like that you can have a few tricks up your sleeve to handle cravings without going overboard. I think it helps with the all or nothing mindset… “If we don’t have have time to cook then we might as well binge on fast food and meat lovers pizza”

    That’s how I used to deal. Now I do the best I can and when I don’t have it in me to hit the kitchen I like to have options available that help me still feel in control.

    December 16, 2010

    Totally agree =) We cook every night, but there are those few nights that I am driving home trying to think of a fast food place that I could stop by and make good decisions. To have a frozen pizza that is a better option would be nice to have.

    It certainly looks good and yea, I never buy the fat free cheese either for the same reasons. I agree with you… for practical purposes, it would be great to have these little discs in the fridge for when the pizza craving hits.

    I trust you roni so I’m gonna give them a try.

    I’m so glad you reviewed this! I’ve been wondering about this pizza myself but was afraid to try it.

    Wow, that is amazing!! For the same amount of points I could have a meager bowl of mini wheats, or an ENTIRE pizza! Thanks so much for this info! :)

    Given how much obesity is becoming a problem in our society, I think that it is tips like this that really make a difference — where people only have to make minimal changes to the types of food the eat (eg pizza) and yet make substantial improvements to their diet. Thanks.

    Looks intriguing. I’m with you on the fat-free cheese, though. I don’t buy it because I hate the way it doesn’t melt … but I’ll give this pizza a try, if I can find it around here.

    I have ordered these pizzas. They are expensive but yummy (in a better than nothing sort of way). I plan to buy them again.

    So glad you liked it and that you’re an affiliate now, Roni! I also like the crunch of the crust and I think it’s a great alternative to fast food!

    These pizzas are not 6 WW points plus. They are 7. I used to order these a couple of years ago when they were 4 WW points. I decided that they would still be worth it at 6 so I ordered them and yes they are incredibly expensive. The nutritional fact sheet on the website is incorrect. Talk about false advertising. The label that I received on my pizzas does not match the one on your website either. WTF? How many different labels are floating out there. I just hope we don’t find out that the entire thing is BS! My label reads 18g protein, 0 g fat, 47 g carbohydrates and 2g dietary fiber. Very disappointed!

    It’s amazing to know that i can actually eat a fat-free pizza. This only means that i can eat my pizza without worrying about adding weight. I will see if i could try it too. Great discovery and thanks for sharing.
