Review: Score great game food with DiGiorno

We had a little gathering for the Detroit Lions game on Dec. 26 and needed some food to go along with the festivities. I headed to Walmart for some food that would make the game.

To see more on my shopping trip, view my Whrrl on my visit to Walmart for DiGiorno pizzas.

I didn’t have time to make a list or otherwise prepare, but my goal was to feed all of us for about $5 per person. Our party was going to have four adults and two children.

Now, my first mistake was shopping at Walmart on Dec. 23. Most of the town was in the store loading up on last minute gifts, food for holiday parties and some were even getting home improvement supplies. I made my way to the frozen food section and checked out some of my options. I made my way down the long aisle of frozen pizzas. There were so many and then there were a few cases of different kinds of bread sticks. As I rounded the corner to the next aisle, I saw the end cap with DiGiorno Rising Crust Pizza. Bingo.

With a $4.99 price tag and all the toppings we could ever want, the DiGiorno was cheaper than  our $5 pizzas at the local pizzeria. I went with the supreme style.

I knew I had to find some beverages and side items to complete out meal. I went toward the soft drink aisle and saw the big yellow Walmart low price ticket of $1 for a two-liter of Pepsi. I picked up that and a Mountain Dew and figured we also had water and some beer at home.

To finish off the meal, I picked up some lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and carrots to make a salad. I had a few dressings at home that I would share with our guests.

I got the pizza home and kept it frozen until out gathering. When it was time to eat, I followed the directions for a softer crust pizza. We cooked it for the recommended time, but took it out and realized it needed just a few mote minutes as the dough was still a little raw in the middle. After a little extra time in the oven it was perfect. We served it up with the salad and some pop and the meal was complete.

The pizza was really great. The supreme pizza with all the toppings was definitely the way to go. The cheese was tasty and the crust was plump and soft, just the way I like it.

The next time we are opting for a party meal, we’ll grab a few DiGiornos, a couple sides and serve up the fun.

And now the fine print: I was compensated by Collective Bias for this review.
