Frozen Pizza Friday : Review of DiGiorno Pizza and Wyngz

So I decided to start a new series on my blog called Frozen Pizza Friday (or FPF as my husband keep calling it tonight.) Why? Because I needed a justification for my frozen pizza addiction. I usually avoid packaged food, eat local, and try to keep it healthy. Except when it comes to frozen pizza. This quick, cheap, fast dinner gets me every time. The kids will eat it, my husband loves pizza, and I am a sucker for pepperoni.

So why not turn it into blog fodder? I’ll be working my way through the frozen pizza aisle and plan to post a review on Fridays. First up? DiGiorno Pizza and Wygnz . Yes, Wygnz.

When I first saw these combo packs in the store, I rolled my eye. I mean who needs cookie, breadsticks, or chicken “wings” with their pizza. But when I saw them on sale for $5.49, I couldn’t resist. Plus a single frozen pizza is rarely enough to keep the four of us fed at one meal now that the girls have stopped eating like birds. I figured the extra food couldn’t hurt.

The pizza itself was decent. Good pepperoni and cheese, but not enough sauce. The crust is where it failed for me. It was doughy and sweet and left me feeling like a lead balloon. Next up was the wyngz. The spice level of the sauce was right on. But the wyngz themselves. Yeah, no. Small chunks of chicken coated in a thick breading. I am a buffalo sauce fanatic and I still stopped after two. This is actually a pretty great concept, pizza and wings together, but the execution fails.

Comments

  1. I saw that and was thinking of getting it. That’s a great price.

  2. your right, not that great, the box said approximately 7 – 8 wyngz, We got five. Would not buy again.

    • I would email or call them. I bet they would send you a few free product coupons to make up for the missing “wyngz”.
