Stouffer's Three Meat French Bread Pizza
These French-bread-based mini pies are topped with sausage, pepperoni, and bacon, creating a small pizza that has more sodium than 12 McDonald's Chicken McNuggets. Yikes.
DiGiorno Croissant Crust Three Meat
DiGiorno took things up a notch with the introduction of its croissant crust. While it might make for a lighter, flakier pie, it's still high in calories and sodium.
Red Baron Thin and Crispy Pepperoni Pizza
Red Baron's thin-crust pies aren't actually worse than the classic crust options. Just one slice of the Thin and Crispy Pepperoni Pizza will set you back 1,010 milligrams of sodium. The classic version? It's still pretty scary, coming in at 810 milligrams of sodium.
Tombstone Original Supreme Pizza
The presence of peppers, olives, and onions don't really help make things better here. This pie, which is also topped with the classic processed meats combo of sausage and pepperoni, is scary high in sodium.
Celeste Pizza for One, Sausage and Pepperoni
If you thought going for the "personal pan" option would be a safer bet, this sausage and pepperoni pizza from Celeste proves otherwise. Coming in with 900 milligrams of sodium and a very long list of ingredients that includes fattening palm oil, this one gets a skip.

DiGiorno Bacon Me Crazy Pizza
The fat and sodium in this pie are way too high! Even if you are splitting this pie, one serving alone is packing 920 milligrams of the salty stuff.
Red Baron Classic Crust Four Cheese Pizza
You might think that since this pizza is thin crust and just topped with cheese and no meats, you would in the clear. But don't be fooled! It's still high in calories, fat, and sodium.
California Pizza Kitchen BBQ Chicken Pizza
While this pizza gets some points because the chicken it's topped with is grilled, there are still plenty of red flags. The fact that there are a few different sugars listed on the ingredients is not the best when it comes to finding a healthier pizza option.
Screamin' Sicilian Brazen Buffalo
This spicy Buffalo chicken pizza is simply drowning in salt. One slice sets you back 1,300 milligrams, making the whole pie clock in at more than 5,000 milligrams. Keep in mind that The American Heart Association recommends the average person have no more than 2,300 milligrams a day of sodium, moving toward an ideal limit of no more than 1,500 milligrams.
Tombstone Original 4 Meat
By now, it should be clear that any pizza that is topped with multiple processed meats is going to be bad news for your waistline. And that's all this 4 Meat pie from Tombstone is—trouble!
