I was lucky enough to be asked if I wanted to try the NEW Digiorno Design a Pizza Kit. Of course I said, 'Yes'. Who doesn't like pizza. When the coupons arrived I went to Winn Dixie, and picked up two. The one I am reviewing today is the Pepperoni and Sausage with Peppers and Onions.
The picture on the front of the box shows slices of pepperoni, sausage, peppers and onions, and plain.
I opened the box, and had the cheese pizza, and all the rest of the ingredients were packaged separately. I removed all the packaging, and then preheated the oven to 400 degs F.
I asked Len what he wanted, and he said anything but onion. I made one half of the pizza for him, a slice of pepperoni, one of sausage, and then a slice of each with the green peppers.
For my half I had a slice of pepperoni, one of sausage, and 2 slices with peppers and onions. I then sprinkled the mozzarella cheese, and pizza seasoning on top.
The oven was ready so I put it straight on the shelf in the middle of the oven. The directions says to cook for 20-22 minutes. I checked on 19 minutes, and it was cooked perfectly.
The pizza cut well, but was a little more well done than I like on the bottom. However, when we ate it, it was full of flavor. I love the variety of toppings that we used. It was much better than any other frozen pizza I have eaten, but fell short of the brick oven pizza we always have at Treasure Island beach. I really can't compare it to Hungry Howie's or Pizza Hut, as I don't eat chain restaurant pizzas.
Nutrition facts are for one fifth of the pizza: 360 calories, calories from fat 140, total fat 16g, saturated fat 7g, trans fat 0g, cholesterol 25 mg, sodium 730 mg, total carbs 39g, dietary fiber 2g, and protein 15g.
Without the coupon the price was $8.99, so it really wasn't much cheaper than having a delivery.
I am looking forward to eating my other pizza, and will share my thoughts with you. Right now I am undecided as to whether I would buy them in the future.
