REVIEW: DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza

DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza

Phew. Thank goodness it’s over.

We decided to lift the self-imposed ban on food reviews here at the Impulsive Buy, because we would like to get rid of all these empty boxes and bottles of food products that we couldn’t review because of the stupid ban.

So that means food reviews up the wazoo for the next few weeks.

Also, sorry about yesterday’s “review.” We know it really wasn’t a “review.” We just wanted to be political like many other blogs, so we pretended to be interested in politics, like Ben Affleck does.

We know. We know. If all the other blogs jumped into a volcano, would we jump into the volcano too?

No we wouldn’t.

So we’re back to real reviews and the subject of today’s review was requested by Impulsive Buy groupie worshipper follower, Alisa.

She asked if we, in her own words, “review geniuses” could review the new DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza. After consulting with each other to determine if she did an adequate amount of sucking up, we decided to go though with the review and picked up the Three Meat Pizza version.

Just to let you know, microwave foods aren’t our best friends. From the exploding TV dinners to burnt microwave popcorn, we haven’t been successful whenever using the microwave. Oh, and let’s not forget the microwave pork grinds. Man, that smell lingered for days.

Although, we have to admit we’ve had some recent successes, like this one, but 99 percent of the time we screw up somehow.

Included with the DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza was a…Um…Crisping contraption, which we think is a black paint job and a few spikes away from being a S&M collar, but that might only be us.

After putting the pizza in the crisping contraption, we put all of that into the microwave and baked it for the recommended six minutes on HIGH. We wanted to watch it to see if the crust would rise, but we remembered what our moms said growing up, “If you stare into the microwave, your palms will grow hair.”

Or was that something else.

Anyway, we let the pizza sit for the few minutes after it was done baking. After tasting it, we have to say that this is the best microwave pizza we ever had that we didn’t screw up. It was like we baked it in a conventional oven and didn’t screw up.

The only major problem we had with it was the price. Spending $4.29 for a seven-inch pizza (don’t ask how we measured it) seemed a bit expensive. If they were on sale or cheaper, we would definitely buy them more often.

We wonder if Alisa will reimburse us.

Item: DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza: Three Meat Pizza
Purchase Price: $4.29
Rating: 8 out of 10
Pros: Crisping contraption worked well. Oven baked taste. No, really, it had an oven baked taste. We didn’t cause it to burn, melt, or explode.
Cons: Outer crust was kind of hard. Expensive.

  1. Did you make enough to share? Thanks for the review. I have alwyas been of the mindset that microwaves and pizza don’t go together.

  2. Busy Mom – We would’ve shared, but we’re still waiting for our iPod Photo.

    Eliza – Your welcome.

    Killthesmiley – Pizza addiction? Um…Are we going to have to have an intervention?

  3. Could you guys BE any cooler? I think not. Thanks so much for risking life and limb to bring me this review. Your adoring public is ever so grateful. You are lucky in that I am recently employed so I actually have $4.29 (ouch) to reimburse you. Get yourself a Paypal button or snail mail address and prepare to receive your rolls of pennies.

  4. Alisa – Um…Could you say that first part louder? You know that “Could you guys BE any cooler?” part.

    No, louder than that.




    As for reimbursement, keep the money. You’re gonna need it if you wanna afford the DiGiorno Microwave Rising Crust Pizza.

  5. I ate a piece of this at the supermarket that they had out for samples but it was all cold. Glad to see a real review of it 😉

  6. Heather – Should’ve asked if you could reheat it in the microwave.

    mai – If only we could get Apple, Mercedes Benz, and Rolex to sponsor us and give us free stuff. Oh to dream.

    Alex – Don’t say stalk. It brings back bad memories. 😉
