I recently discovered that a company in Hebron Illinois has been making frozen pizzas since 1981.


I had no idea that every time I take a drive to Country Thunder on route 173 that nestled in the town, known for the 1952 high school state basketball champs, that another champion was being made.

It's that of their Champion frozen pizza.

Since 1981 Champion Pizza has been churning out several varieties of frozen pizzas. Including:

  • Cheese
  • Sausage
  • Pepperoni
  • Combo (Sausage & Pepperoni)
  • Garlic Alfredo with Sausage
  • Supreme (Sausage, Mushroom, Pepper & Onion)

They also offer several seasonal styles of pizzas of "Garlic Chicken Florentine, Sausage & Pepper Cayenne, Meat Lovers, Sausage & Mushroom, Bacon and Veggie Delight."

Can you say, yum? All of those sound delicious.

I know I just have to try one.

Where can we find them?

According to their website, Champion can be found at the following retailers in Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois: Sentury, Festival Foods, Jewel, Walmart, Woodman's and Piggly Wiggly.

I honestly had no idea. I must be living under a rock to not have known about this.

I need to try these pizzas that have been around since I was in first grade. Geeze that's a long time.

I mean they have to be good. Look at a few of the comments people have made on their website.

"A frozen delight..." - Pat F, Rockford, IL
"I have wondered for some time about Champion Pizza and finally had the opportunity to try one.  WOW, what a great pizza...  The sauce is great and the toppings and crust work great together. Thanks!" - Jimbo, Lake Geneva, WI
"I care what I feed my family! The frozen pizza isle at our store seems to get bigger and bigger all the time, but if it's not real bread, not real meat, not real cheese, how's that pizza or good food at any price? I only buy Champion Pizza, it's just great quality pizza, and happens to be frozen." - Remi, Kenosha, WI
"We have tried many different frozen pizzas at our tavern in the past, but none compares to Champion.  Not only does the product sell itself, the customer service we receive is outstanding.  I am a Champion Pizza customer for life!" - Don W., Walworth County, WI Tavern Owner

Alright I'm sold on getting a pizza. I guess I'm going to make a stop at woodman's tonight and do a taste test.

According to their TV commercial all the pizza are handmade with fresh ingredients.
