The DIGIORNO® pizza brand is owned by Nestlé, the world's leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness Company. The Nestlé mission of "Good Food, Good Life" is to provide consumers with the best tasting, most nutritious choices in a wide range of food and beverage categories and eating occasions, from morning to night.

The Nestlé Pizza brands strive to carry on the “Good Food, Good Life” mission as well through our DIGIORNO®, TOMBSTONE®, and JACK’S® pizza brands, as well as with our licensed brand, CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN®. Below, you will find out more about the DIGIORNO team’s commitment to our Quality, Health & Wellness, and the Environment.

Our Commitment to Quality

All DIGIORNO pizzas are proudly made in the Midwest. We have two pizza bakeries in Wisconsin that have been cooking up delicious DIGIORNO pizzas since we launched in 1995. But their pizza-making history goes even farther back, as both bakeries have been in the pizza business for over 50 years and they’re cornerstones of their respective local communities. Proud of what we do? You bet we are!

Facts on Little Chute, WI Bakery

  • Most DIGIORNO Multi-Serve pizzas are made in Little Chute

Our great-tasting pizzas are created with care by a team of “seasoned” pizza professionals. Here’s the scoop on what’s cooking in our pizza kitchens on a daily basis:
  • Our Crust: We make our dough fresh daily from flour ingredients sourced in the US. The dough is aged 30-90 minutes (proofing/fermentation step) to allow the dough to rise and develop each DIGIORNO crust’s characteristic flavor and texture.
  • Our Sauce: Our flavorful sauce is made with 100% California-grown tomatoes and is freshly blended every day with spices and seasoning, creating our signature DIGIORNO sauce.
  • Our Cheese: The mozzarella cheese used on our pizzas is shredded fresh daily in the bakery and 100% is sourced in the Midwest. In fact, the majority of our cheese is sourced in Wisconsin, very close to our two Wisconsin bakeries.
  • Our Toppings: Our veggie toppings are picked at the peak of ripeness and flash frozen to lock in flavor, aroma and nutrients. Our seasoned meat toppings are all USDA-inspected and approved and never contain MSG.
Our Commitment to Health and Wellness

As part of Nestlé USA, we are committed to Nutrition, Health and Wellness (NHW). “Good Food. Good Life” is in all that we do. And that means that we believe that the enjoyment of food and beverages is harmoniously linked to life and living at its best. Through our commitment to NHW, Nestlé can offer best-tasting products that nourish the body, raise the spirits, honor the environment and provide consumers with the knowledge they need to make thoughtful and healthful choices for themselves and their families.

And when it comes to DIGIORNO, we know that our oven-ready pizza is a delicious food that’s easy to prepare and fun to share. In fact, it often brings people together whether for a shared meal or feeding the gang during a fun gathering. And our pizza varieties really deliver on great taste, solid nutrition and helpful convenience so that you can always choose the DIGIORNO variety that’s right for you and your pizza-eating occasion.

We have been actively working to improve the nutrition profile of our pizzas while ensuring our pizzas always taste great.

Some of our work includes:

  • Reducing or eliminating artificial trans fats from our product varieties
  • Reducing sodium
  • Reducing or eliminating artificial flavors and preservatives
  • Reducing calories from saturated fat

Our new pizzeria!™ from DIGIORNO® is a great example of our work so far on this front. This delectable pizza is created with care using fresh ingredients and features a preservative-free crust, no artificial flavors and zero grams of trans fat per serving.

We also believe pizza can be enjoyed as part of a well-balanced diet. Our recommendation for the perfect portion: Enjoy a slice of pizza (300-400 calories) with a salad, roasted veggies, fresh fruit and a glass of water.
