DiGiorno 200 Calorie Pizza and $200 Visa Card Giveaway!


This a compensated review from DiGiorno and BlogHer.


About a year ago, I started my food blog called "Cheat Day Cafe". I love to bake and cook (and eat), but I am also almost constantly on some sort of a diet. I've been like this for a long as I can remember. I called my blog "Cheat Day Cafe" because to keep my sanity, I would give myself one day of the week where I could eat, bake or cook whatever I wanted. A cheat day. And I have been a chronic cheater of late!

Instead of starting another diet that never works, I decided that this year I would just make healthier choices in my diet. I'll eat good things in moderation and not be obsessed with food. Well, I'm not sure if the latter will ever happen, but I have enjoyed not being focused on what I can't have and more focused on just eating what I want in moderation.

So, I was thrilled when I was selected to do a review of DiGiorno 200 Calorie Pizza. They came in 3 different varieties: Pepperoni, Cheese and Tomato and Chicken with Peppers and Onions. Each box came with 2 perfectly proportioned servings which were 200 calories each.












So here is my review:

I decided to make the pepperoni pizza and tomato and cheese pizzas with a salad for dinner. It was just me and the kids, and I knew they would love a pizza night. The servings were smaller than they were used to, but they really enjoyed the flavor of the sauce and the crispy thin crust. My son of course loved the pepperoni and my daughter surprised me when she said that she liked the cheese and tomato the most. She said that it had "pizzazz". I don't know if I spelled that correctly, but I actually agreed with her. There was a freshness to the ingredients that you rarely find in the frozen food section. And it didn't taste like 200 calories. But it was DiGiorno...so what did you expect!

The pizza was a big hit with my kids. With the problem of childhood obesity rising, it is nice to know that there is a delicious, portion controlled option that would fulfill that pizza craving and that a school kid could easily pop into the microwave.

Last but not least, I saved the chicken with peppers and onions pizza for me and me alone! It was in the freezer over the weekend and I took one of the servings to work on Monday. My husband actually begged me to take it because he had been having "to beat the kids off with a stick" to keep them away from my pizza that I need to review. Again, I was so pleased with the freshness of the ingredients and the crust....YUM! As I finished my lunch, I realized that I had eaten slowly, enjoyed the flavor and that I wasn't hungry for anything else. I can just have one piece and feel satisfied! Who knew?

So if it's not "cheat day" yet and you are looking for a single serving of a really satisfying pizza, I would highly recommend the DiGiorno 200 Calorie Pizzas found in the freezer section of your grocery store.

I would like to try the chicken and peppers. If I could find a nice animal protein source without the calories, it would do wonders for my family. I also like the way its labeled. It doesn't advertise that there is no sugar or fat, just it's calorie content. I haven't seen it in the stores in Gulfport, so hopefully it is coming soon! Glad I found this blog!
