DiGiorno’s Cinnamon Roll Croissant Crust Breakfast Pizza “combines the buttery, light, flakiness of a croissant with real cinnamon, sugar, and cream cheese.”


The cinnamon may be real, but your “buttery” breakfast pizza consists largely of white flour, margarine (palm oil is the first ingredient), “cream cheese flavored chunk” (more sugar and palm kernel oil than cream cheese), “churro pieces” (mostly sugar and white flour), “cinnamon flake blend” (mostly sugar and palm and palm kernel oils), and “cinnamon cream” (more sugar, buttermilk solids, and cornstarch than cream cheese).

Assuming you stop at just ¼ of the pizza, you swallow 460 calories, 8 grams of saturated fat, 550 milligrams of sodium, and 15 grams of added sugar. That’s roughly 25 to 40 percent of a day’s worth of each. And not a vegetable, fruit, bean, nut, or whole grain in sight!

DiGiorno’s Eggs Benedict Inspired and Sausage & Gravy Croissant Crust Breakfast Pizzas have 330 to 350 calories per serving...but only because the labels show Nutrition Facts for just 1/5 of each pizza. (That’s the FDA’s serving size for heavier pizzas. So easy to slice a pie into fifths!)

“Perfect for breakfast or dessert!” says DiGiorno about its Cinnamon Roll pizza.

That says it all.
