Frozen Friday: DiGiorno - Pizzeria Primo Pepperoni Pizza

Pizzeria (stylized as "pizzeria!") is DiGiorno's latest line of pizzas meant to offer a pizzeria-style crust that you can bake at home. The Primo Pepperoni is topped with "premium" pepperoni and promises a "crispy outside, soft & airy inside, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil" crust.

An 18.7-ounce pie cost $5.49 at Target. I was actually hoping to pick up a Supreme, but this is the only variety they had.

Let's start with the crust: it had a thin but satisfyingly crispy shell. The crumb is soft and airy as described, but not quite to the freshness level of a just-baked crust. I would say it's 90 percent there though, which is really good for frozen pizza.

The pepperonis were pretty thick and flavorful with a bit of heat. Like any other frozen pizza I've eaten, it never quite develops those desirable crispy edges. I think that's more due to the low temperature of a home oven compared to a pizza oven though.

The cheese is pretty standard. Not quite the ooey, gooey stretchy mess I want, but there was decent coverage.

The sauce was surprisingly robust and zesty without being excessive.

Overall, DiGiorno's Pizzeria Primo Pepperoni Pizza is really good for a frozen pizza. It's crisp without being dry and there's a good amount of quality and tastiness to be had.

  3. Agreed. I tried the cheese one, and it was surprisingly good for a frozen pizza. I'd buy one again (and have).

  4. We had the pepperoni one last night, it was great. The regular listed price was around $8, which is too high for a frozen pizza in my opinion, but thankfully it was on sale for $5... I'd definitely get it again if it's on sale.
