Tip #3: DIGIORNO Artisan Style Melts are a perfect snack for your movie night and other 2-person occasions! The artisanal-style focaccia bread, infused with flavors like rosemary, garlic and onion, is drizzled with pure olive oil, then topped with carefully selected, high-quality ingredients, including a blend of real, fine cheeses, sauce from vine-ripened tomatoes and premium meats and vegetables.
We tried DIGIORNO Artisan Style Melts flavors: Pepperoni Speciale and Spicy Sausage Pomodoro, and they were delicious! DIGIORNO Artisan Style Melts are also available Quattro Formaggi and Chicken Bruschetta flavors. We can’t wait to try them as well!
Serve delicious DIGIORNO Artisan Melts as is, or bake a few different flavors to cut into pieces to share!
Tip #4: Don’t forget to make a sweet treat to enjoy after your pizza! Try these Sea Salt Chocolate Pretzels for a delicious dessert!
Sea Salt Chocolate Pretzels

Melt the chocolate chips. Drop a mini pretzel in the melted chocolate and be sure to coat on all sides. Tap fork on edge of bowl to remove excess chocolate.
