Digiorno Pizza

I’m sure you have seen the Digiorno commercials with the slogan about their pizza being so good it is mistaken for delivery. Well guess what. It really is about as good as delivery. And the cool part is that it is at a lower price than the pizza chains. I have tried several frozen pizza brands over the years but for now our family favorite is Digiorno’s Cheese Stuffed Crust. We usually get the five cheese option but there are one or two other choices in their stuffed crust pizza which include the pepperoni and three meat options. There are a lot more choices in the original crust than the cheese stuffed crust.

I actually did not eat frozen pizzas much before I met my husband ten years ago and when I did I chose a lower priced brand such as Tony’s. I still think Tony’s is a good way to go if you are on a really tight budget. Ah, the pizza of the college years. My husband introduced me to Digiorno pizza several years ago and I am glad he did because I think they taste great. I use these pizzas as an alternative for the occasions that I do not feel like cooking from scratch as I normally do.

With that said, I honestly would not recommend eating these pizzas often. Well at least not the cheese stuffed crust version that my family normally gets. Clearly not because of taste or quality but due to health reasons. I am no health expert but they probably are not the best choice if you are trying to control or maintain your weight. I almost hate to say it but they are one of those foods that taste good but is not good for you. The five cheese stuffed crust pizza comes in at a whopping 390 calories for 1/5 of a pizza and has 160 fat calories. The pizzas are about the size of a medium pizza at pizza chains. It may not be the healthiest option but that will not stop my family from occasionally enjoying these delicious pizzas. Mmm…just talking about it makes me hungry. Guess what we’re having for dinner tonight.
