DiGiorno Is Rolling Out A Frozen Pizza With A Croissant Crust

This Candy Cane Pizza Is Causing An Outrage On Twitter (Photos)

Crimes large and small have been committed this past year — enough to cancel Christmas altogether. It looks like everyone’s on the naughty list and if you check it twice, you’ll find this Twitter user, David Sanchez, serving up a deliberately horrendous pizza pie made of DiGiorno pizza and melted candy canes. It’s not DiGiorno, it’s revolting.

“‘Tis the season… to be jolly, my dudes,” Sanchez wrote on Twitter on Dec. 2.

Sanchez posted a peppermint cheese pie topped with a dozen or so melted candy canes, then served lovingly to his partner who appears to be enjoying herself a slice.

The candy cane pizza comes after an equally distasteful DiGiorno pizza combo that went viral on Twitter earlier this year: Candy corn pizza.

DiGiorno weighed in on the issue.

The frozen pizza company tweeted later, “First candy corn. Now candy canes. Next PLEASE STOP DOING THIS.”

Others just couldn’t figure out why anyone would ruin a perfectly good pizza.

Other users were in on the trending joke, suggesting even grosser festive pizza toppings such as eggnog, pumpkin spice, Lucky Charms and Valentine’s Day candy hearts — which we can bet will make its way into someone’s kitchen by February. But nobody actually expects anyone to eat it, do they?

“It was excellent,” Sanchez told The Daily Meal. “Probably making another for Christmas dinner (winky face emoji).”

One person on Twitter noted, “Breath gonna smell like cheesy Colgate.”

Sanchez falls among a half-dozen others who reverted back to toddlerhood when squashing random food toppings together was cute. Revisiting the gross dishes, you’ll find the guy that baked candy corn into a DiGiorno pizza; the bored college student who made a Pop-Tart cheese sandwich, claiming it was an “Iowan” thing; and the Illinois-native enjoying his state’s “classic” mustard Pop-Tart.

Santa’s giving coal to all these food vandalizers (not to be made into a coal-fired pizza). Just coal. Let’s try to bring in the new year with our food toppings exactly where they belong; the candy canes on the tree, the mustard and cheese on sandwiches, and the candy corn … well, who really eats those, right?

Step Aside, Pizza Rolls, Because Pizza Buns Are In Town


By Cooking Panda

Totino’s Pizza Rolls and Ore-Ida Bagel Bites have been around for years, and DiGiorno finally has an answer: Pizza Buns.

Soft, golden brown and bubbling with rich cheese and zesty sauce are the company’s new snack, rolled up into miniature buns, cinnamon-roll-style, to be eaten by hand. The doughy snacks are brushed with pizza sauce and toppings, baked and eaten while hot, and they’re available in four varieties.

First is a standard yet bold pepperoni flavor, stuffed with pepperoni pieces, mozzarella cheese and DiGiorno’s chunky tomato sauce. I’d suggest dipping the bites in Ranch for a cooling contrast.

Bachelorette number two is a five-cheese variety, sporting Asiago, Romano, parmesan, mozzarella and ricotta cheeses in one convenient bite of crust. Share these with your cheese connoisseur friends.

Then we have spinach-artichoke buns, reminiscent of the popular dip and flavored with the green veggies and a three-cheese blend. They’d make a scrumptious gamed-day snack.

Last is an option for meat lovers only: the Italian-style supreme bun. Those bad boys pack Italian sausage, pepperoni, onions, black olives, mozzarella, and green and red peppers into hearty dough bites. Sounds like dinner.

Pizza Buns mark DiGiorno’s first foray into the bite-size pizza market, and the online reviews are mixed. Some say the buns skimp on flavor, while others say the cheese and tomato sauce taste pretty pleasant. Some complain that the cheese isn’t gooey and melty enough, but that means, fortunately, that the sauce won’t burst and burn your mouth with every bite. Some say they’re not a very filling snack, but they’re easy to make and turn out well both baked and microwaved.

As for how much you might like them? It sounds like that’s something you’ll have to determine for yourself.

You can snag Pizza Buns in boxes of six for around $4 at your local supermarket. If you think you can master them better on your own, here’s a recipe for homemade pizza buns.
