Frozen Friday: DiGiorno - Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza

This week's Frozen Friday brings us DiGiorno's new Cheese Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Pizza which brings stuffed crust pizza to the microwave.

An 8.5-ounce pizza sells for $3.99 at my local supermarket or around $2.00 to $2.50 on sale.

Having never seen stuffed crust frozen pizza done before, I tried this one with a fair bit of interest. The pizza is relatively short in diameter with a fair bit of crust but is thicker than most pizzas.

Picking it up, there was nice bit of give and softness to the crust which has a warm bread-like texture that I found myself liking quite a bit.

Biting in, there was a satisfying amount of melted mozzarella cheese nestled within the crust and quite comparable to Pizza Hut's version. The sauce, and cheese were pretty decent. And the pepperoni was thick and flavorful. I wanted a bit of baked crispness from it but, hey, it came out of the microwave.

Overall, I enjoyed DiGiorno's Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza very much and place it at the upper spectrum of microwave pizzas.

  2. Relented and tossed to the winds temporarily my self-banning of carb-laden comestibles; specifically, pizza.

    Did not grab frozen fare.

    Plunged headlong into fast-food-type chain store pizza with a speech impediment, apparently.

    Not naming firm since that is irrelevant to this message.

    After hauling the pizza home I slathered it with large amounts of seasonings out of the plastic containers.

    Oregano, Italian-style seasoning pre-mixed mixture, dehydrated onions and parsley flakes.

    I yummified the pizza.

    Tasted better that way.

    To me.

    Spices are personal.

    Even more so than dames with their smell-good concoctions they pay HUGE sums for with, so often, a mere few pennies worth of smellable liquids mass-produced within factories for pennies per gallon.

    Silly gals.

    They could buy a horde, a herd of pizzas for what they pay for those stinky volatile chemicals.

    Back to heating and eating frozen veggies.

    Tonight?

    Maybe green beans, french-cut and maybe broccoli.

  4. I think there are two sizes, one kind of personal sized like this, and then the more normal frozen pizza size. Both good, but the other one's much bigger. And the other one's definitely not "new", it's been around at least several months.

    This is a great frozen pizza though, but not usually cheap. Worth the money if you want good frozen stuffed crust.

  5. The actual "pizza" part looks so small. It seems mainly crust
