Safe Frozen Pizzas? - Peanut Allergy Information

Safe Frozen Pizzas?

I was wondering what pizzas anyone has found to be safe for PA, TNA and egg allergies. We have successfully used Bagel Bites 3 Cheese but have not deviated from that. I'm looking to give my daughter some variety!

Thanks!

My son eats Tombstone cheese and pepperoni constantly. Also eats Red Baron, Stouffers French Bread, and Bagel bites with pepperoni.

American specific, yes?

Totinos (made by General Mills) lists "Wheat, Milk and Soy" as their allergen statement. We have never had any problems. My son has a PN, TN allergy. Please don't take my word for it though that it is egg free. I don't see anything about egg in the ingredients, but I am not an expert in looking for egg/egg by-products.

So happy to hear there are possiblities for EA/PA for pizzas!! Dgood, did you happen to call the bagel bites company about x contamination? Just wondering.

On Nov 16, 2004

I did call about the Bagel Bites - I forgot which company they fall under but it's one of the big ones that swears they list any allergens if applicable. My daughter loves them!

My PA dd eats DiGiorno all the time. I don't have one in the freezer right now to check about eggs though. She loves the cheese stuffed crust ones.

My son eats the Tony's individual pizzas. I believe I read on here somewhere that Tony's was a PN/TN free facility.We have had no problems with these.

On Nov 22, 2004

My PA son eats Red Baron frozen pizza practically everyday! They have a few different choices, big, individual, or mini pizzas. He eats the plain cheese flavor and loves it!

I have a very strict comfort zone and a picky eater too!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

we eat Freshettta brand...sorry, I don't have one handy to see if it contains egg, however, as I recall, they DO use 'allergy labeling' hope that helps, Diane

On Feb 14, 2005

I called Freshettta brand's pizza today, they don't suggest us to use their product since they produce peanuts on the same line.

On Feb 14, 2005

We have used Elios with no problems.

On Feb 14, 2005

We used to use Kraft frozen pizza. However, I found a very quick pizza recipe with a simple crust, so now we use that instead. I posted it over in the Snacks & Recipes forum, labelled "Quick & Safe Pizza at Home," just in case anyone is interested.

On Feb 14, 2005

We use Ellios, Shaw's unfrozen, and bagel bites.

On Feb 15, 2005

Confirm for yourself, but I am pretty sure that it was Freschetta that has the Thai Peanut Pizza that I saw at the grocery a couple of weeks ago.

On Feb 15, 2005

We use Tonys and Stouffers French bread pizzas with no problems. peg

On Feb 17, 2005

My son has been eating Celeste for years with no problems. They even have the bold allergy warnings on them for milk, soy and wheat. So I know they are allergy aware.

On Apr 7, 2005

does Freschetta have MAY CONTAIN statements on them. i also called a few months ago and the women was not informed at all. they do have CONTAINS statements i think??

On Apr 7, 2005

Mystic Pizza (same as the movie) is safe

On Apr 7, 2005

We are avoiding peanuts, tree nuts, egg and milk. We have been using Mama Mary's pizza crust (fresh in shelf stable package) and adding our own toppings. There is a 12" size and a personal size. The crust works well frozen, too.

I haven't called the company, but here are the ingredients:

Enriched flour, water, soybean oil, yeast, salt, dried honey, calcium proprionate, potassium sorbate, l-cysteine.

On Apr 7, 2005

Oh, but the deep dish version contains butter.

On Jan 4, 2006

Per "Jamie" @ Freschetta 1/4/06, "all Freschetta products are made in a peanut free facility"

On Feb 19, 2006

Just wondering about safe frozen pizza??? How can the Freschetta be peanut free pizza if they make the Thai style pizza which does contain peanuts according to the website??? Not condemning anyone, I'm just asking and wondering since we have used this brand before. Does anyone know any details about this??? The only thing I can think of is the peanut pizza is made in another facility. Has anyone called on this lately?

dont trust Freschetta. when i called the woman was not informed at all. they do make peanut pizza so the facility CANNOT be peanut free.

On Feb 19, 2006

Red Barron

On Feb 19, 2006

we have used the bagel bites by heinz, digiorno and tonys, i believe. now we just buy mama marys crusts, kraft shredded cheese and contadina pizza sauce and make our own. dont use boboli crusts, i called on them and they said i shouldnt use it.

On Feb 20, 2006

Interesting about Boboli. I called them a year or so ago and they indicated they were safe. We have had them a few times, but not recently. Won't anymore. Thanks.

On Feb 20, 2006

We use Kroger Brand and Mr. P's. Kroger taste better.

On Feb 20, 2006

I eat those tombstone individual microwave pizza's all the time. They come 2 in a box. No problems.

On Mar 17, 2006

I just talked to someone at Freschetta and they assured me that both facilities that make their pizzas are now peanut & tree nut free. The customer service reps just recieved the memo about this last month. The thai peanut pizza was discontinued about 6 months ago - that is why they didn't used to be safe. Jennifer

On Mar 17, 2006

DS eats Tony's pizza weekly at school. Wednesday is pizza day, and it has been Tony's every week, although I check every time in case the distributor switches brands on them.

Just a heads up for the egg allergic, Mama Mary's now has a warning, "manufactured on shared equipment with eggs".

my two local stores are replacing mama marys with longos. called longos and they said there may be problem with oil used to spray pans they cook crust in. probably will use pillsbury dough next. the freshetta is nut free now. talked to them last week.

On Mar 18, 2006

mama marys are safe, i called company. you would think that boboli was safe too though just by reading it. i called boboli and they recommended i didnt use it. all my grocery stores are getting rid of mama marys though.

warning: [i]BAD MOMMY[/i] alert! I'm not recommending in any manner or form. I'm just stating what my own family's personal highly individual, and potentially unique situation. My family and I could be doing it all wrong.

We (*my family*) use some "Boboli" crusts, "Home Run Inn" cheese and four cheese and pepperoni, "Uno's" pepperoni and cheese, I think we tried some others, but I'm really funny about [i]garlic smell[/i] when they cook. Those are the one's the entire family can tolerate. (and we usually load up one of the Boboli's with "adult" toppings, including zuchinni and other greenery.) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] Occasionally, we make our own crust, but what a mess! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Oh, and we use a certain brand and flavor of square bagels for "bagel pizza".

We also order from about 4 other pizza places. Saturday is usually pizza night in some form or other.

Anywhooooooooo, I could be taking a risk. Endangering. But personally, and not as advice to anyone else, *we* have no reason to change. It's working for us. I never found a reason to believe it wouldn't, either. Individual Mileage May Vary.

I could be wrong. doing it all wrong. KWIM?

I'm completely addicted to Tony's pizza! I use to buy the big, original crust pepperoni, but I'm the only one who eats it, so I buy myself a few personal pizzas each week. I blame this odd craving on pregnancy! *I usually hate pizza!*

On Apr 28, 2006

I have a plain cheese original Tony's pizza in the freezer staring me in the face. Would you guys feel comfortable giving this to your PN, TN, EA child? I am very scared to try new foods but I do get a lot of relief/confidence reading your responses! Thanks!

On Apr 28, 2006

we have used heinz bagel bites, digiorno and totinos i believe. got a call re: freshetta and red baron and they are supposedly nut/sesame free after discontinuing their thai peanut flavor. oh and we dont avoid egg totally so i cant remember if they have eggs or not

Does anyone have contact info for Tony's? The camp my son is going to serves Tony's and Betzio's (totally safe, btw) and I want to confirm the latest on Tony's since there seem to have been some changes.

Their website seems to be down, so I can't get any contact info. Thanks all!

Amy

On Jun 14, 2006

couldnt email them either. number is 888-465-8324. i thought they were safe but schwans is iffy in my book. good luck

On Mar 22, 2007

So is Tony's still okay? I noticed the labeling is a little different, I think they just moved the contact info on the right side.

On Mar 23, 2007

The labels on their bulk boxes haven't changed (DS's school serves Tony's once a week, and I check the label each time).

I called Tony's (Schwan's) 2 weeks ago because they were serving the individual personal size pizzas at a birthday party my girls were going to. I was told that the personal size are made in a peanut/nut free facility. She did say that some of their foods are not made in peanut/nut free facilities and to call and check. There is a code on the side of the boxes that indicate the manufacturing plant which they will ask you for.

On Apr 1, 2007

Oh and almost forgot, they do not label with "May contain" or "processed in" on their packaging. It is best to call first!! Shelley

On Apr 1, 2007

doesnt schwan make red baron and freshetta. i was told that they were nut free??

On Apr 1, 2007

My kids love the Trader Joes cheese pizzas and the cheese pizzas from Market Day.

On Apr 1, 2007

We eat McCains pizza's here in Canada... anyone know if they are safe/unsafe for PA/TNA? Also I read somewhere here that bagal bites from heinz are okay for PA/TNA is this still true and also apply to Canada? Thanks

Stacey

On Apr 1, 2007

xoxstacey, I am in Ontario. I use McCains, Kraft (I feel that both label well) and PC wood oven pizzas ( I always call about these.

Ali

On Apr 1, 2007

I usually buy the DiGiorno by Kraft. i like the microwave one because its quick!!

On Apr 1, 2007

I don't know if these are "safe", according to other peoples standards, I just know my family eats them.

Homerun Inn (YEAH, CHICAGO!!!)

Palermos

Gino's East (from the supermarket shelf and restaurant)

Red Barron

I know there are a few more, I just can't remember the names.

No advice, just personally. I could be doing the "BAD MOMMY" thing and not even realize it.

On Apr 1, 2007

I'm definitely going to be calling about the Tony's. I ate them for a long time, then quit, then when I went to buy them, their labeling looked different, so I'm calling in the am.

On Feb 10, 2008

So MommyMegan, did you call and get an answer from Tony's?

On Apr 1, 2008

I just called McCain a few days ago, even though I have always trusted them for some reason. The girl told me McCain has adopted a policy of not only not using ANY nuts in their products, they also won't buy ingredients from anyone who uses nuts. So, cakes, pizzas, etc by McCain should be a-ok!

I also use Kraft pizzas, and an occassional President's Choice, but only if I buy it during the day so I can call them before I make it :) So far, they've been safe everytime.

On Apr 2, 2008

i heard on here tonys is safe so i bought today. didnt say eggs by the way. anyway it was like 3 dollars cheaper than others. anyone use this

On Apr 2, 2008

Hi Tidina We use it 3 or 4 times already, cheese pizza and meat pizza. I actually did call them, they said it's peanut free, but did not ask about tree nuts or eggs..etc. Honestly, it's not that good, but I am happy to add another choice to my 2 year old's menu. Sometimes I do miss that "greasy" store pizza, haha, but safety is the priority!

On Apr 3, 2008

well i have been letting my son eat most pizzeria pizzas. i just tell them to keep pesto away and ask what kind of oil they use. once we got whole pizza from place that uses pesto and asked them not to cut it and we used our own pizza cutter at home.

On Apr 4, 2008

Tostino's and Freschetta Cheese pizzas for us. Never had a problem.

On Apr 4, 2008

we have eaten those too.

By Meshell5579 on May 13, 2013

I know this post is old, but I just got off the phone with Tony's Frozen Pizza. Mitzy said "we use them in the same line, but we wash the lines" after I had asked her if the individual cheese pizzas were safe for someone with a Peanut/ tree but allergy. Glad I called. We do not use them ever, we use Red Baron.
