Poll: Red Baron vs. Digiorno (90 votes)

Red Baron 38%
Digiorno 60%

@rorie started the fight on twitter, now the community must decide: Red Baron Pizza or Digiorno.

For me, Red Baron Pizza is the best frozen pizza.

Where's the option for "actual pizza"?

#2 Posted by JayEH (534 posts) -

I'll eat either, so I vote both.

Red Baron ain't bad.

#5 Posted by Animasta (14730 posts) -

Freschetta is superior to both, but if I had to choose it would be digiorno.

#6 Posted by AiurFlux (902 posts) -

Digiorno. That animal abuse makes the cheese taste sweeter.

Clicky.

Digiorno, hands down. Hell, just by those pics, the Red Baron's look like a hot mess compared to the Digiorno.

Not to be a snob, but I get my own ingredients and make my own pizza.

Can I get Banana and Mango on my Baron pizza?

#12 Posted by Turambar (6898 posts) -

I thought for a moment there was an Italian WWI ace called Digiorno that I didn't know about.

#13 Edited by ShaggE (6724 posts) -

Digiorno all day. Frozen pizza is barely pizza, but I love it, and Digiorno rules the roost.

I undercooked one once, though... it tasted weirdly great at the time, but I felt like I was going to give birth to myself for the rest of the day. And if you overcook it? Fuggeddaboudit. Still tasty, but the regrets come hard and fast. Don't listen to the box, either... the perfectly cooked Digiorno only comes with practice and a bit of luck. *nods sagely*

If I want cheap shitty pizza I get Lil Caesars. If I want cheap shitty pizza and I don't want to leave the house, I eat a Totinos, because in that scenario I already hate myself, no sense in wasting the extra buck or two.

I hate pizza. all pizza.

What the hell is Red Baron pizza?

You have no soul! Begone foul demon!

#18 Edited by TyCobb (1975 posts) -

The best frozen pizza is this (I am completely serious):

If you want a super cheap and awesome pizza, it is this:

Depending on the store, the Totino's pizza is only like $1.50 to $2.00.

EDIT: God dammit! I am fucking hungry now and drunk, but have nothing in the house to eat. Fuck you! D:

#19 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1482 posts) -

Freschetta really is the best frozen pizza, the cheese always tastes off on Digiorno and most ofther brands...and the crust is pretty good. Good all round frozen pizza.

Also Totinos are the best when they get nice and crispy and you are inebriated.

#20 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2178 posts) -

Digiornos new Pizzeria! brand is really good. Better than anything short of going to an actual pizza place to get a freshly made pie.

#21 Edited by GalacticPunt (1111 posts) -

Digiorno or Freschetta are both fine frozen pizzas. I stock up on whichever one is on sale.

All other frozen pizza are gutter trash and beneath my contempt. *adjusts monocle*

#22 Posted by ILikePopCans (776 posts) -

God all these food forums tonight! I will eat any frozen pizza but I have more experience with Red Baron, so them.

#23 Posted by alwaysbebombing (1652 posts) -

Anyone who eats Digiorno is unrefined, swine.

#24 Posted by Animasta (14730 posts) -

@tycobb: are you kidding? Totino's is trash. Tony's is the better cheaper alternative (and where are you shopping? Totino's is like a dollar and Tony's is 2)

this. 2 dollar pizza is the best pizza.

It takes a half hour to make pizza from scratch till it is in the oven. Why would anyone pay a 500% markup on the cost of a pizza that is so inferior to the real thing?

#27 Posted by joshwent (2353 posts) -

Yup. Maybe I'm spoiled by living on the east coast, but neither of those food products are pizza.

Not that they're horrible either. I've been known to dig in to a Digiorno in my time and thoroughly enjoy it, but it just tastes completely different than actual pizza. It's its own lovey doughy mess.

Also, completely on topic, this guy always reminded me of Jeff...

Dough + sauce + cheese + whatever the hell you want. Making a pizza that isn't ass is effortless.

#30 Edited by CrazyBagMan (859 posts) -

@monetarydread: because when the difference is $4 vs 25 minutes, I'd rather spend $4 more dollars. Though, if I'm getting a pizza, it's papa murpheys.

#31 Edited by tsutohiro (364 posts) -

As far as frozen pizzas go, I'm good as long as its of the "supreme/deluxe" variety.

I voted Red Baron though because it's so damn cost effective.

#32 Posted by Vuud (2035 posts) -

The frozen pizza hole is a dark and smelly hole to go down. I think they are all equally terrible. I'd take the shittiest takeout pizza over any frozen pizza.

The upside to frozen pizza is that its on demand and able to be "doctored", buy some shredded mozzarella for extra-cheese, or whatever additional toppings you like, etc., and you have a masterpizza whenever you want it.

Digiorno garlic crust for me.

#35 Posted by ThunderSlash (1969 posts) -

Out of those 2 I prefer Red Baron. Digiorno's has this weird aftertaste that I don't particularly like. Costco Take And Bake is the best out of any frozen pizza though.

So many fake pizza snobs in here that probably actually eat frozen pizza all the time. Do ya'll go into threads asking what your favorite JRPG is and say "Skyrim cause I play RPGs that are decent lololol"

Anyways, I eat frozen pizza a LOT, and I have to say Red Baron is probably one of the worst. Digorno is one of the best (especially the cheese stuffed crust and the Pizza + Wingz, as well as the Pizzeria or whatever they introduced).

#37 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (529 posts) -

Red Baron all the way. Digiorno has always tasted too doughy to me, even when cooked to the point of burning.

Of the two listed brands, i choose this one, although the strange smell of the pizzeria brand can get old if you have it too often.

Still, I think Freschetta is the best of the classic pepperoni (back when they had sauce stuffed crust that was amazing), followed by CPK for its bbq chicken.

And while pizza rolls and bagel bites are in their own class i choose them over standard frozen pizza because I live da OG neckbeard lifestyle and wont bother with triangular pizza varieties when i can grab and gobble bite-sized greaseballs in between games with ease.

That's my professional lazy unemployed college dude opinion.

Sainsbury's Taste The Difference

Get on my level.

#40 Edited by notdavid (842 posts) -

This is my favorite. Cheep as fuck, and super delicious. Unfortunately it's a Walmart brand, and the only Walmart near me seems to have stopped carrying it.

#41 Edited by ShadowConqueror (3089 posts) -

I've only had Diogiorno a few times because it's more expensive, so I guess Red Baron.

#42 Edited by MAN_FLANNEL (2462 posts) -

The italian digiorno pizzas are fucking delicious. They have extra herbs, better toppings, and olive oil on the crust. It doesn't even taste like a regular digiorno pizza.

#43 Posted by SMTDante89 (2588 posts) -

For those that are saying Freschetta, you're all my favorite people.

#44 Posted by Demoskinos (15180 posts) -

I find red baron to be a serviceable gentleman.

#45 Edited by Hosstile17 (769 posts) -

I avoid Digiorno. The pizza part is awesome. But, their crust is way too dry. So, Red Baron.

#46 Edited by StrainedEyes (1335 posts) -

Neither. After extensive testing, Freschetta is the best brand of frozen pizza.

#47 Posted by chiablo (1000 posts) -

Red Baron thin crust or fire baked.

Digiorno takes too long to cook, and the "rising crust" always feels kinda doughy.
