This Just In

DiGiorno Dates

DiGiorno

It’s become a bit of a running joke in my family — if it’s Friday, it’s time for a DiGiorno date! Lucas and I may be the reason that our local grocery stores keep the frozen pizzas in stock because we buy so many, so often (Publix usually has them two for $10!).

We love, love, LOVE this pizza and have even turned down opportunities to eat free pizza elsewhere if it competes with our own pizza night at home. It’s the only one we’ve found in the frozen aisle that doesn’t taste frozen — the ingredients are rich and well-spread out, the crust is buttery in a way that I don’t KNOW how they pull off, and it goes from freezer to table in about 30 minutes.

Is this a sponsored post? Yes. But imagine the glee on the delight on my face — and on Lucas’ — when I found out we’d been picked to try out and review four new Pizzeria! Thin Pizza flavors from DiGiorno. It felt almost too good to be true. So believe me when I tell you it was nothing but a pleasure to work on this delicious review.

So, what is the big news?

  • these Pizzeria!™ Thin pizzas are a brand new line, joining the Rising Crust variety
  • the pizzas have preservative-free crusts that are proofed for nearly 90 minutes before they’re baked in a 700-degree oven (that’s what makes them so thin and crispy)
  • they come in a square shape rather than the traditional round pizzas, and each crust is drizzled with extra virgin olive oil before it gets topped with a from-scratch sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, basil, thyme and oregano
  • the cheese, meets and vegetables are 100% real — no artificial flavors
  • the New DIGIORNO Pizzeria!™ Thin pizzas come in four flavors:
    • Supreme Speciale: Topped with caramelized onions, red & green peppers, premium pepperoni, Italian sausage
    • Primo Pepperoni: Topped with premium pepperoni
    • Margherita: Topped with diced roma tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella, parmesan, romano and asiago cheeses
    • Spinach & Mushroom: Topped with spinach, garlic, mushrooms

DiGiorno

And all of the pizzas come with a “Love It Or It’s Free Guaranteed” Refund, so let DiGiorno know what you think on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #YouBeTheJudge.

So…what did we think?

Our DiGiorno date nights have turned into family nights, now that we have another hungry little pizza fan in the house. So on the first try-it Friday, we popped a Margherita in the oven — I was a little concerned that it might be too small for us (did I mention we love pizza?) but it was just the right size!

{Plus, I was able to put the pizza in the oven and on our plates much faster than if we’d picked up or had pizza delivered. That’s BIG for us when the carseat leads to a meltdown and stingy Widricks hate paying a delivery fee and tip.}

The tomatoes stayed sweet and firm, the crust was incredibly crispy and the flavors were better than those I’ve found at many pizzerias. We sometimes eat it as-is, but often add a little spin, and in this case, added some onions and avocado to about half of the slices.

DiGiorno

And we were able to make a game out of eating each slice, counting how many tomatoes we each had, or naming all of the colors we could see. Audrey also loved looking at the empty box and screaming out all of the letters she found.

The next week, it was time to try the Spinach & Mushroom — always a tricky one in my house because I love mushrooms but Lucas is…ambivalent. If they taste canned or slimy, they won’t make the cut.

DiGiorno

But these veggies were delicious and firm and truly tasted fresh. We threw some avocado and goat cheese on this one for an extra kick. YUM.

DiGiorno

And I’ll admit…we waited until Audrey went to bed to eat this one. I know it’s important to share but Mama is very protective of her pizza! Even so, I was surprised at how well one serving — 1/4 of the pizza — filled me up.

Are you hungry yet? I hope you’ll try these new pizzas and if you do and don’t like them — don’t forget about that guarantee! Enjoy your date night (or family night)…

Coming Up Short (My Second Stitch Fix Review)

This is my second Stitch Fix and honestly, it was not a great fit (literally, actually — you’ll see in the pictures and review). I’m still hopeful for next month, and I’ve made some adjustments that I think will give my stylist a better idea of what I’m looking for.

My Style No Longer Needs a Fix

I recently went on a shopping spree at Style Encore (in Orlando, with locations nationwide) and now I’ve dumped Stitch Fix for good. Not only are the prices much, much better — you can work with a stylist for free to build the perfect outfits for your size, your lifestyle and your budget.

Spring Clean Your Blog in Ten Steps

I’m fairly good at making sure that my site is free of extraneous crap, but I’m not immune to put-all-the-things-in-my-sidebar-itis, or the dreaded dated About Page phenomenon. So I’m taking some time to audit everything, and to get rid of any content that no longer works or fits my blog.
