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.
1/4th = 9 points plus. Totally worth it!
