I do believe that cooking from scratch is cheaper and healthier.
You might be able to find a cooked chicken for cheaper than uncooked, but if you make it yourself it's healthier and tastier.
Regarding frozen veggies, sometimes I think the plain frozen veggies are cheaper than fresh. But then it depends on if you want organic or not. Organic frozen veggies I haven't seen in bulk, and they're not cheap.
Soups are incredibally marked up when you buy them pre made.
Baked goods, as well, i.e. your pot pie crust you mentioned, bread, cookies, bars, etc.
The freezer will become your friend because you'll cook a lot and have leftovers to freeze for another time.
