DiGiorno Announces New Mac & Cheese Pizza

Mac & cheese is a beloved dish for many a reason, but we can assume unanimously that its main appeal lies in its melty, cheesy goodness. The same can be said for pizza. Combine those two and you have yourself a pizza that I suddenly grew a massive craving for right in the middle of this sentence.

Well, thanks to Digiorno, this dreamy pie is a reality, as it was just announced its new Original Rising Crust Mac & Cheese Pizza, inspired by Stouffer’s signature Mac & Cheese.

Nationwide release isn’t for a while, though, being slated for Spring 2022. However, fans can win an exclusive first taste now during October’s National Pizza Month. Here’s how:

  • What: DiGiorno is giving away a preview of its new Original Rising Crust Mac & Cheese Pizza in an online sweepstakes.

This Guy’s Candy Cane Pizza Pissed Off DiGiorno And The Entire Internet

Twitter is infested with some of the worst food combinations, like strawberry-topped pizza and Pop-Tart cold cheese sandwiches. Now we can add a holiday treat to the list, as someone thought it was a good idea to make a candy cane pizza.

David Sanchez of Chicago, Illinois probably thought this pizza was a viral sensation waiting to happen, and it kind of worked, as he successfully disgusted anyone who saw this abomination.

The pizza consisted of pizza sauce, shredded cheese, candy canes, Santa candy, all on top of a DiGiorno crust.

It didn’t take long for the responses and GIFs to start rolling in, and they were priceless:







Shortly after Sanchez tweeted out his candy-based pizza, DiGiorno made it very clear that they did not cosign this Christmas disaster, with a swift response of “NO NO NO.”

DiGiorno didn’t stop there, as they could not let go of this atrocious pizza that was sweeping through Twitter, and asked that these tragic pizza experiments end.

That’s what happens when you have the power to easily create. DiGiorno recklessly gave out this kind of power, now they have to live with the consequences.

DiGiorno Savagely Clowns On Papa John’s Falling Stock

DiGiorno and Papa John’s might be in different pizza markets, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a good ol’ fashioned rivalry.

Papa John recently spoke on the NFL’s wave of protests, attributing the pizza company’s plummeting stock to the NFL not handling the issue immediately. Papa John is known for working closely with sports teams, particularly the NFL, but he recently pulled some ads, even though he’s always had a man crush on Peyton Manning.

DiGiorno wasn’t buying what Papa John was selling, though, and basically Tweeted out Wednesday that Papa John’s should just focus on making better pizza.


They didn’t stop with the snarky tweets though, as they upgraded their pettiness to reflect on their Twitter bio:


This isn’t the first time DiGiorno has gone after Papa John’s as they seem to be an easy target. There was a time in 2015 that Iggy Azalea tweeted out a complaint about Papa John’s, and DiGiorno was right on top of it.

Papa John’s tried clapping back with a dad joke-like Twitter bio that probably won’t go over as well. I kind of get what they were getting at, but the execution wasn’t that funny.

Not helping Papa John’s case, Pizza Hut execs came out to say that they’ve felt no impact over protests, and their sales have been just fine.

Whether protests really are the reason Papa John’s is suffering, or the fact that their crust is pretty mediocre, DiGiorno seems to be the high school bully that won’t let them live anything down.

Big Rig Full of Frozen Pizzas Crashes and Spills All Over Highway [WATCH]

Whenever an accident involving a big rig occurs, it’s not always as delicious as this saucy situation in Arkansas.

This out of the ordinary trucking accident involves lots and lots of pizza, and broken hearts all over America. According to Arkansas Online, a truck carrying an insurmountable amount of frozen Digiorno and Tombstone pizza was passing through Interstate 30 in Little Rock when it hit an overpass support beam, causing its cheesy contents to be splattered all over the pavement.

There was no one hurt in the accident—other than the pride of pizza lovers everywhere, but it did close the highway for four hours while officials cleaned it all up.

DiGiorno’s Facial Recognition Software Delves Into How Pizza Makes Us Happy

The joyfulness that pizza brings is a feeling ingrained in us since our earliest memories of ever having one. Childhood pizza parties in particular evoke the elation and wonder we all felt whenever we gathered with our best pals and dug into a cheesy slice or three. Fast forward to our grown selves and the equation of pizza and happiness still rings true.

Pizza makes us happy. Duh.

But have you ever wondered what exactly about it has us daydreaming about our next slice with a goofy grin on our faces? Could it be the toppings? Or maybe it’s the gooey, ‘Grammable cheese pull? Maybe it’s the intoxicating aroma of eau de deep dish?

DiGiorno pizza facial recognition

Well, thanks to a recent social experiment conducted by Digiorno Pizza, the levels of joy when pizza is to be had have been identified and pinpointed. The results? Quite surprising to say the least and can be observed through the video above.

To conduct this experiment, DiGiorno enlisted real folks to throw their own pizza party. During three separate parties, the room was set up with more than 40 high-resolution cameras that captured footage of guests throughout the affair. With the help of facial recognition and emotion-tracking software, the footage was then analyzed to identify patterns in emotion.

Yes, with pizza, everybody wins. But who knew there were levels to this kind of happiness?

DiGiorno Now Makes PIZZA MELTS

Spicy Sausage Pomodoro Artisan Style Melts

Digiorno has launched a new line of smaller serving pizzas called Artisan Style Melts. The melts are designed to be enjoyed as snacks, or a smaller meal.

The melts are made with focaccia bread and come in four different flavors: Spicy Sausage Pomodoro, Quattro Formaggi, Pepporoni Speciale, and Chicken Bruschetta.

Unlike most frozen pizzas, the new melts are designed to be popped in the microwave and be ready in just a few minutes. For those who would still prefer to cook them like most frozen pizzas, they can also be baked in the oven.

According to Digiorno, preparing them in the microwave will make the bread softer, while the oven will provide a crispier texture. Each box, priced at $3.99, contains two servings.

Additionally, the company announced the expansion of the flavors available in their line of pizzeria! thin flavors, with the addition of Spicy Italiano and Provolone, and  Chicken Parmigiana. These two new flavors join four previous pizzeria! thin flavors, and will be available nationwide for $6.99. The thin flavors are designed to cook faster, in about 20 minutes.
