What is the DiGiorno Meatless Monday Meatless Sausage Supreme Pizza
Well, for starters, it’s a bunch of words. So going forward, I’ll probably refer to this as DMMMSSP, or “dimsup” if I’m saying it aloud. This is the frozen pizza maker monolith’s ode to fake meat, which has been quite the rage for the better part of recent history.
How is it?
It feels as though this review should be split between “how’s the fake sausage” and “how’s the product, overall?”
So, to answer the first one — it’s great! Made with pea protein, you’d be hard-pressed to discern these crumbles from the real deal. (At least in terms of, you know, frozen pizza sausage.) There is a very convincing chew and real sausage-like seasoning. It’s peppery without being spicy.
The pizza, however, is just okay. If you’ve had DiGiorno, you’re familiar with the bland, muted veggies (in this case, red and green bell peppers and onions), the overly sweet sauce that gets applied with a sauce cannon, and the crust which is thick and uncompromisingly bread-y.
Anything else you need to know?
“Meatless Monday” was started in 2003 by Sid Lerner, who advocated that people give up meat one day a week for both their health and the health of the planet. Is it weird that this was the first time I’ve ever heard of it? And I say this as someone who’s been a vegetarian for brief spurts in the past and regularly consumes meat-alternatives.
While I used to think DiGiorno was tops in terms of the frozen pizza empire, it feels as though they have recently been passed on all fronts by multiple competitors. But while brands such as Urban Pie and Screamin’ Sicilian may best DiGiorno in most ways*, their meat-alternative options are, for now, nonexistent. Kudos to DiGiorno for taking the leap; hopefully, we’ll soon see more brands do the same.
*The best option, if you have it in your area, is Brew Pub Lotzza Motzza frozen pizzas, by the way.

I am very disappointed that this is a supreme meatless sausage pizza and not a plain meatless sausage pizza. I despise cooked bell peppers and cooked onions, so I’ll give this one a miss. I am very, very glad that there are more faux meat products on the market. I always feel like a monster whenever I eat meat.
You can always just buy your own meatless sausage crumbles and add them to any other type of frozen pizza?
Watch out people. We got the next Emily Dickinson over here.
Thanks for the review of this dimsup pizza, dat whats up.
Now you’re on the trolley!
Haha! Love it. 🙂
I agree, those Lotzza Motzza frozen pizzas are the best ones I’ve tried!
I have a lot of vegan friends that get really irritated with stuff like this because why not just make this completely dairy free and use veg cheese shreds, and I TOTALLY get that sentiment but I’m just happy to see a mainstream brand offering meatless products that look amazing. If this helps someone pivot to a more plant based day-to-day, then great. If not and you just like meatless stuff sometimes, that’s great too! Can’t wait to try.
Very true; I think most of these mainstream companies are just testing the waters though. If plant based eating continues to pick up steam and stand the test of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if they started producing wholly vegan items.
Yes!! There are already so many chains offering things like Follow Your Heart and Daiya shreds, like Mellow Mushroom pizza and Blaze Pizza. I think that’ll increase with demand for sure.
I’ve never understood why someone would want pizza, but only wants barely any sauce on it.
Spot-on about the veggies, though. Never, ever get a frozen pizza with frozen veggies included, just get a non-veggie pizza and then add your own by taking the pizza out of the oven when it’s a little over half-way done so they don’t burn.
DiGiorno is garbage overall and I really wish more national brands would move in to give them a run for their money.
Their pizza is glorified BREAD with sauce and toppings.
Thank you. Although I did enjoy DiGiorno’s in the past, I had a pretty big gap of not eating one until recently. It didn’t taste nearly as good as I remembered, so I thought it was just an outlier that I bought. After not liking the second one either, I thought that either I didn’t quite remember how these tasted, or they were different. Now I know it’s the latter.
