Frozen Friday: DiGiorno - Pizzeria Thin Supreme Speciale Pizza

DiGiorno's Pizzeria Thin Supreme Speciale Pizza features a thin, crispy crust topped with Italian sausage, pepperoni, red and green peppers, and caramelized onions.

An 18.8-oz pizza was $3.99 on sale.

The crust isn't what I would think of as "thin." It's more like thinner crust and is actually thicker than some other regular-crust pizzas, frozen or otherwise.

I initially undercooked the pizza. The dough was cooked through, the cheese was melted, and the crust was golden, but when I bit into it the end-crust was crispy but also a tad too chewy. Toasting it later yield a much crispier crust without the chew, while keeping the crumb soft and airy. It's just something to keep in mind regarding baking times; you might want to bake it for longer to the best results.

Beyond the crust, there's good coverage of melted mozzarella cheese and a robust, thick tomato sauce. Highlights among the toppings include a strong note of fennel from the sausage, thick, slightly spicy pepperoni, and an extra sweetness from the onions. The peppers weren't very impactful.

Overall, DiGiorno's Pizzeria Thin Supreme Speciale Pizza turns out very well as long you bake it sufficiently. The contrast between the crispy crust and airy crumb is really nice and the toppings add some subtle bells and whistles to a classic combination. I just wouldn't call it "thin crust." Even when compared to their regular Pizzeria line it's just slightly thinner.
