How To Score DiGiorno's New Mac And Cheese Pizza Before Anyone Else

If pizza and mac and cheese are two favorite comfort foods on their own, then the new DiGiorno mac and cheese pizza must be the ultimate culinary mashup. At the very least, it's not the run-of-the-mill combination you'll see at just any pizza shop. The pie is made with the brand's signature rising crust and is topped with luscious macaroni and cheese that's inspired by the frozen classic, Stouffer's, according to a press release sent to Mashed.

News about the specialty cheesy pizza, which has a suggested retail price of $5.99, comes just in time for National Pizza Month. While it's not available in stores nationwide until spring of 2022, a few lucky people will get a chance to taste the creative pie before it hits freezer aisles. Starting now and ending on October 27, fans can enter an online sweepstakes to win one of a very limited quantity of free DiGiorno Original Rising Crust Mac & Cheese Pizzas. All you have to do is enter your name, email, zip code, and age range for a chance to celebrate the month of pizza with a nostalgic, macaroni-laden pie.

DiGiorno pushes the envelope of frozen pizza

This isn't the first time that DiGiorno has taken advantage of a national food holiday to showcase its pizza creativity. While the brand is using this year's National Pizza Month to hype its upcoming mac and cheese pizza, it delivered the DiGiorno donut pizza, also known as the DiGiornut, for National Donut Day this past June. The savory donuts were stuffed with mozzarella, topped with DiGiorno pizza sauce, and finished with lots more cheese, according to a press release sent to Mashed. Though they were only available via a Twitter sweepstakes and not in stores, the promotion got people talking about the brand and the inventive food mashup.

The expansion of pizza beyond the traditional crust, sauce, and toppings is something that DiGiorno continues to tackle. Food Business News included the brand's croissant crust pizza, for example, as one of the major retail trends in frozen pizza. While the toppings are traditional with cheese, pepperoni, and other meats (via DiGiorno), the flaky crust has people rushing to stores to try something out of the ordinary. It goes to show that while store-bought pizzas might be kept on ice, their flavor innovations cannot be frozen in the past.
