I remember the first time the hubby and I watched the big game together on TV. It was a small gathering, just us and one or two other friends. I really wanted to show off my cooking skills, so I had planned a game time feast. Apple Pie a la mode, baked potato skins, homemade nachos, and from-scratch cookies were only the beginning of my recipe list. And for those of you wondering if I pulled it off, I certainly did. However, I don’t remember seeing a minute of the game. By the time I had made all the food and cleaned up the kitchen, I was too tired to socialize and all the good spots on the couch were gone. Much has changed since those first days of dating bliss. Now I don’t have the energy or the time to make a game day feast, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a blast eating and watching the action. DiGiorno Pizzas are by far our favorite game time food, and since they are on rollback at Walmart for $4.50 I definitely stocked up for the upcoming weeks! Most of the pizzas have a 17-28 minute cook time, so rolling out game day snacks in 30 minutes or less has never been easier.
Here are a few tips to get your DiGiorno feast game day ready!
- Buy a large variety of pizzas. With selections such as Rising Crust Pepperoni, Rising Crust Sausage, Rising Crust Supreme, Three Meat or Four Cheese, there can be a variety to satisfy everyone’s pizza craving.
- Don’t forget about the kids. Even if they are too young to stay up the entire night, chances are there may be some kiddos around at least for a bit. Most kids are a fan favorite of cheese pizza, so pick up a Four Cheese DiGiorno for them.
Surprise the kids with a no-crust pizza. Simply cook the Four Cheese DiGiorno Pizza as directed on the box, then once it is finished let it cool for seven to eight minutes. Using a pizza cutter, cut off the crust. Separate the crust into three to four inch lengths, and include them on a plate with marinara sauce for instant bread sticks! Break out the cookie cutters to make fun pizza shapes for the kids with the no-crust pizza that is left.
- Experiment with different pizza cutting styles. I like long and thin pizza stick shapes. The hubby and his guy friends want traditional triangle shapes. Since DiGiorno is so much cheaper than carry-out pizza, there is no reason not to satisfy everyone!
I am sure Walmart’s rollback price of $4.50 on these DiGiorno Pizzas won’t last forever. Found conveniently in the frozen food section, I may have to head back and stock up again. There are advantages to having a stand alone freezer.
You are so smart to point out food for the kiddos! Our parties are always kid-friendly, and the menu should reflect that too! These all look so yummy – we always get DiGiorno. The crusts are the best!
I agree- their crusts are awesome!
They look yummy! And I love that statement about all the good seats on the couch taken. I’m always afraid of getting up because someone will steal my seat!
I guess every group has a “seat thief!” 🙂
Those kid shaped pizzas are adorable!
I love the kid-shaped pizza slices! My girls would go nuts for that!
I love Digorno pizzas! They’re great for those nights that I just don’t really want to cook anything major!
