SOLON, Ohio , June 24, 2014 (press release) – New DESIGN A PIZZA™ Kit Lets Everyone Create Their Own Personalized Slice

How's this for a personal touch? DIGIORNO®, the leader in premium frozen pizza, is giving everyone the chance to come together, and for the first time ever, create a truly customizable and delicious DIGIORNO pizza with its new DESIGN A PIZZA™ kit. Regardless of your pizza-eating personality – hold the veggies, pile on the meat or kick up the spice – the DIGIORNO DESIGN A PIZZA kit lets you customize a pizza with a personal touch based on each person's individual tastes.

"Whether it's through fashion, finger painting or building craft-stick houses, everyone is looking for ways to express themselves, and food is no different," said Todd Macsuga, Director of Marketing for Nestle Pizza. "With the new DIGIORNO DESIGN A PIZZA kit, everyone's an artist. We are making it easier than ever to show off your personality in a creative way, while customizing mealtime to fit specific tastes and to please everyone around the table."

The new DESIGN A PIZZA kit includes a full-size DIGIORNO cheese pizza with individually wrapped premium meats, veggies, shredded cheese and seasoning packet. Everyone can create their own perfect slice with these three flavorful varieties:

Pepperoni and Sausage with Peppers & Onions: features pepperoni, sausage, red and green peppers and onion strips

Spinach, Tomato & Red Onion with Pepperoni: features pepperoni, chopped spinach, diced Roma tomato and red onion

Chicken, Green Peppers & Red Onions with Pepperoni: features herb-seasoned chicken, pepperoni, green pepper and red onion

"I don't know how many times I've heard my family say, 'I want extra cheese or I don't want those green things on my pizza.' The beauty of the new DIGIORNO DESIGN A PIZZA kit is I can cater to my entire family's food demands without having to cook multiple pizzas. I simply pick up a DESIGN A PIZZA kit, select the toppings I know my family will enjoy and bake it up in 20 minutes. At the end of the day, dinner is served and everyone's happy, including me," Christy Denney, food blogger and creator of The Girl Who Ate Everything.
