DiGiorno Just Released a Cinnamon Roll Pizza, Plus Two More Breakfast Pies

If savory breakfast pizza is more your speed, there are also eggs Benedict or sausage and gravy options.

The frozen pizza brand has given a morning spin to their existing Croissant Crust Pizza.

Americans love pizza, even for breakfast. In fact, a 2019 poll found that over half of those polled would rather have a cold slice of pizza than their usual breakfast options. Of course, you don't have to eat a cold leftover slice: Breakfast pizzas do exist. And yet, despite our love of a good pie, breakfast pizza has never seemed to catch on as a regular morning option.

But the frozen pizza specialists at DiGiorno are hoping to bring breakfast pizzas to the grocery shopping mainstream with a new line of morning pies. And even if your a.m. sweet tooth can't stomach the idea of eating a savory pizza for breakfast, DiGiorno still has you covered: One of their new pizzas is inspired by a cinnamon roll! (As opposed to a donut.)

Rolling out to stores nationwide this month, DiGiorno's Breakfast Croissant Crust Pizzas are part of the brand's Croissant Crust Pizza line — which they launched last year — but with a breakfast spin. Whereas Croissant Crust Pizza previously only came with standard toppings like Four Cheese and Three Meat, the new Breakfast edition comes in three varieties: Eggs Benedict Inspired, Sausage & Gravy, and Cinnamon Roll (the latter of which DiGiorno says is their "first-ever sweet pizza").

If you're wondering how a cinnamon roll pizza is not just a giant cinnamon roll, well, if it's shaped like a pizza, cut like a pizza, and served like a pizza, apparently it's a pizza, even if the toppings sound very un-pizza-like. The package describes this breakfast pie as offering "cinnamon cream sauce, cream cheese crumbles, churro pieces, and cinnamon flakes on a croissant crust."

As for the other two breakfast pies, the Eggs Benedict Inspired pizza features "scrambled eggs, diced ham, cheddar and mozzarella cheese with hollandaise style sauce on a croissant crust," while the Sausage & Gravy variety has "sausage and gravy style sauce, cheddar and mozzarella cheese on a croissant crust."

DiGiorno adds that these pizzas are made with "high-quality ingredients like 100 percent real cheese, cage-free eggs, premium pork sausage and real cinnamon." And just in case you were wondering, the brand says they are "the only croissant-style breakfast pizza available nationally in the frozen aisle."

But do they beat a cold slice of regular pizza? I feel like the best way to find out would be a head-to-head morning taste test. I wonder what percentage of Americans would agree with that?
