DiGiorno Pepperoni Pizza Buns Review

DiGiorno Pepperoni Pizza Buns

DiGiorno is one of our go-to brands for frozen pizza, so it should come as no surprise that we’ve also explored some of their not-really-pizza-though-still-pizza-themed items as well. And that includes their Pizza Buns, which are pretty much exactly what they sound like.

So here’s a quick rundown of the Pizza Bun flavors: We loved DiGiorno’s Five Cheese and Spinach Artichoke Pizza Buns, and the Italian Style Supreme Pizza Buns were pretty good though not exactly what we were hoping for. But Pepperoni, now there’s a classic, and before today it was the only one we hadn’t tried. So of course we took the Pepperoni Pizza Buns for a whirl — we owed it to ourselves and our readers.

These things come in little packets of two, and there are three of these packets per box for a grand total of six. The serving size is one packet, and there’s even an icon on the packaging that tries to steer you away from Cookie Monster-ing the whole box. Even so, we’re sure DiGiorno won’t be heartbroken if you do what we did and toss all six into the oven at once. This comes out to 600 calories (240 from fat), though, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.

A neat little detail here is that the flavor is written on each package.

So if you want to consolidate boxes to save room, you can mix and match flavors without worrying about getting them mixed up. It’s perhaps a feature that makes things easier for their factory workers, but it makes things easier for us as well, so we’re into it.

These things come out of the oven looking amazing (and smelling just as good).

They also taste great, though we should point out that they’re far more bun than pizza. There’s a little bit of sauce congregated near the center, and you might be lucky enough to find a tiny little piece of pepperoni or two. Our assumption is that the little yellowy textured portions on the top of the buns make up the entirety of the cheese content, so don’t expect a stringy, cheesy snack.

But even so, we can’t really complain. All the innards are great, so we’d have loved some more of the stuff, but DiGiorno makes a pretty tasty pizza crust as well. So having that as the primary ingredient here isn’t a bad thing at all.

DiGiorno’s Pepperoni Pizza Buns are a great snack that you should definitely try for yourself. They’re a bit high in calories and a bit less pizza-ish than you might expect, but they’re still pretty darn good.

Now, having tried all four flavors, what we’ve learned is that DiGiorno’s Pizza Buns are at their best when they keep things simple. They should focus on one flavor or flavor pairing and not go all-out, like the supreme buns try to do. Because such a large portion is bread, there’s very little room to go wild with a thousand different flavor combinations at once.

We’d also love to try dipping these in a sauce, like a sweet marinara. Or, because we’re true midwesterners at heart, we’d be interested in dipping them in a lovely ranch dressing. Of course, most people are going to find that last suggestion weird…
