DiGiorno's new 200 Calorie Pizza and even happier when I found it on sale at Giant Eagle - bringing the total price down to $1!
DiGiorno's 200 Calorie Pizza comes in three flavors - Chicken with Peppers & Onion, Pepperoni, and Cheese & Tomato. I chose Cheese & Tomato. I was surprised that the box contained two 200 calorie pizzas and that, well, they were rather small. Each individual pizza is rectangular and about 6" long x 3" wide.
They suggest two different preparation methods - microwave or traditional oven. I tried both methods and, although I appreciate the ease and speed of a microwave pizza, the oven method produced a better crust.
The thin crust was very good - when cooked in the microwave, it was slightly tough, but when cooked in the oven it was crispy and even seemed to taste better. The sauce had a herby flavor with lots of garlic and large chunks of tomato. The pizzas were topped with loads of gooey and good mozzarella cheese.
The pizza was very good for a frozen option, especially at the bargain sale price ... but it just wasn't big enough! I had intended to only eat one of the pizzas, but after eating one slice, I was still hungry. I started to wonder how many calories are in a typical slice of pizzeria pizza and how many total are in the three slices or so that I usually eat. Maybe I'd rather just enjoy and not know.
