The song goes when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore. You know what true amore is? Pizza pie.

It's a stereotype that pizza is one of the staples of the college diet, but really, there's a lot of truth to that. Once you split the pie amongst friends, dinner's pretty cheap (a college necessity), and if you keep the pizza to yourself, you have leftovers that should last you a few meals.

Delivery pizza may be more convenient, and in some cases, better tasting than the frozen variety. But a good frozen pizza is a great way to get a few filling meals for cheap. The risk is being stuck with a poor-tasting pie. And that ain't amore, that's disaster.

Store Brand Scorecard tried out four different brands of frozen four-cheese pizzas -- one national brand and three store brand equivalents -- to find the best pizza for the price. All products were purchased Sept. 18 in the Chicago area. Prices are subject to change.
