Pizza is one of my favorite foods, so I like to keep frozen pizza on hand incase dinner/lunch plans go array.This past weekend I really felt like pizza so I opted to pull out a new pizza to give it a try.While grocery shopping a few weeks ago I purchased the DiGiorno Thin & Crispy Pepperoni and Peppers Pizza.
I was surprised to see a true thin crust pizza on the shelf by DiGiorno. I realize there are frozen pizza companies that sell “thin crust” pizzas which truly aren’t what thin crust pizza is supposed to be. What interested me even further is that the pizzas for the most part contain 2 servings.I opted to go with the pepperoni and pepper figuring my boyfriend would share it with me (which he did).
The pizza itself is pretty good. The sauce although isn’t what I typically expect from DiGiorno (or perhaps their Pizzeria! line has totally spoiled my taste buds).It’s mediocre in the sauce department, meaning it tastes more on the plain side than packed with flavor and seasoning.Topping wise it’s on point. There’s a good amount of cheese and the pepperoni and peppers are plentiful and are scattered over the whole pizza. The crust is thin, but thick enough to give you a nice moderately puffy crust (which is my favorite)!. Size wise, it’s smaller than an average DiGiorno pizza, it’s about the size of a medium pizza. Alongside a side salad it’s a perfect meal.
A serving is ½ the pizza, which is 370 calories or 9 points plus values.
Have you tried any of the new DiGiorno thin and crispy crust pizzas?
The last time I had DiGiorno pizza has been probably 3 years ago. Whys that?Well, DiGiorno used to be my favorite frozen pizza and that’s because during the time in my life where I didn’t read nutritional information and I solely went on what I liked to eat.Well, I liked DiGiorno pizza and I ate about ½ a pizza on my own.Well, fast forward to joining Weight Watchers and I realized that a serving in a rising crust DiGiorno pizza is 1/8th of the pizza.Around the time I calculated it out and it was 9 points per SLICE of pizza (1/8th).Needless to say, I hadn’t purchased another DiGiorno for myself to eat in a VERY long time.
That is, until I saw the new Pizzeria! line launched to my local Target and I checked out the points plus values. 1/4th of a pizza was 9 points plus? Say what?!I was running a ton of errands around the beginning of April and wasn’t going to be home for 3+ hours so I didn’t buy it.So when I did want it (by mid-April) I was sending everyone on Pizzeria! hunting missions and all were coming up empty handed.
We found the DiGiorno Pizzeria! Supreme Speciale Pizza at Walmart and paid $3 for it after a coupon.My boyfriend and I had it for dinner one night and I swear … this is THE best frozen pizza I have ever had!
I am a pizza officiando (I think I can accurately wear that hat – because I’ve eaten many pizzas in my hay day and even post-Weight Watchers start).I order out pizza at least once a week, and if we don’t order it out, we’re either making our own or heating up a frozen pizza.This takes the cake where frozen pizzas are concerned.It’s got a moderately thick crust. The sauce is delicious. The vegetables are sautéed and just delicious – they’re not that plain jane throw frozen veggies on the frozen pizza and call it a supreme.This is the bad mama jamma of frozen pizzas.They’re so good we now have 2 more in the freezer for whenever a moment of pizza weakness arises.
