SOLON, Ohio, June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DIGIORNO®, the leader in oven-ready pizza, is launching two products to help you get the most out of moments that matter. Perfect for date night in or binge-watching your favorite summer flicks, DIGIORNO Artisan Style Melts and new pizzeria! thin pizza flavors were developed by the bakery experts at DIGIORNO, who are passionate about putting more into their pizzas.
The DIGIORNO experts intentionally crafted Artisan Style Melts as smaller-serving pizzas that can be enjoyed as a snack or small meal without leaving you too full. The experts tapped that same passion to develop the latest pizzeria! thin pizza flavors – the perfect choice for anyone looking for a premium pizza with a thin, crispy crust and delicious toppings. The pizzas come out of your oven hot and fresh-baked in about 20 minutes, or in just minutes in the microwave with Artisan Style Melts, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time focused on the fun.
"At DIGIORNO, we tap into trends and consumer demand to continually provide products that help us maintain our leadership in the category," said John Carmichael, President of Nestlé Pizza and Snacking. "Snacking occasions are on the rise, and our Artisan Style Melts will satisfy consumers because they offer a great solution for that occasion– a snack-size pizza made with artisanal-style focaccia bread."
Artisan Style Melts
DIGIORNO Artisan Style Melts are made with focaccia bread and flavorful seasonings like rosemary, garlic and onion. Each crispy and airy crust is drizzled with pure olive oil and topped with carefully selected, high-quality ingredients including a blend of 100 percent real, fine cheeses, sauce from vine-ripened tomatoes, premium meats and vegetables and no artificial flavors – so all you'll taste are the delicious ingredients.
Artisan Style Melts – which can be prepared in the microwave in just minutes for soft, pillowy bread or oven-baked for a crispier texture – come in four varieties:
- Spicy Sausage Pomodoro: Rosemary focaccia bread with arrabbiata sauce, Italian sausage, fire-roasted bell peppers, and reduced-fat mozzarella, Romano, Parmigiano and Asiago cheeses.
- Quattro Formaggi: Rosemary focaccia bread topped with creamy Alfredo sauce, reduced-fat mozzarella, and smoked gouda, fontina, Parmesan, Asiago and Romano cheeses.
- Pepperoni Speciale: Garlic and onion focaccia bread topped with pepperoni, marinara sauce and three types of mozzarella cheese.
- Chicken Bruschetta: Focaccia bread topped with white meat chicken, roasted garlic, Roma tomatoes and a premium blend of cheeses and basil.
DIGIORNO Artisan Style Melts are available at grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 (prices may vary by retailer). Each box includes two servings so you won't be left feeling too full – or hungry for more.
