Dining solo? Don't be 'so-so'

A recent survey revealed that nearly three out of four Americans (73 percent) occasionally dine solo.

If you've ever done it, then you know it's hard to cook for one.

The folks at DiGiorno have trotted out their For One pizzas and California Pizza Kitchen For One pizzas in single-serve portions that are ready in minutes.

In fact, nearly 70 percent of folks surveyed say that after a busy week, they’d rather spend a quiet night home alone than a night out on the town with friends. Two-thirds of Americans say they’d prefer to relax by eating dinner in their pajamas on the couch than head out to a fancy meal at a restaurant. But the food they eat alone is often disappointing. In fact, nearly half (48 percent) of Americans who cook for themselves say their meals are boring or mediocre at best.

(Ed. note: Notice our motto that we're always thinking about food and, by golly, life's too short to eat bad food.)

These new pizzas are microwavable. We haven't tried them yet, but as soon as we get our (oven) mitts on them, we'll fire off a review and see how they go.

DiGiorno For One pizzas and California Pizza Kitchen For One pizzas are available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $2.99 and $3.29, respectively.
