Update 10:10 a.m. EDT Oct. 9: A spokesperson for Little Caesars told Delish the video, recorded by Vincent Romero, wasn’t actually depicting DiGiorno pizzas being sold at the pizza chain.
“Of course, Little Caesars only serves freshly baked pizzas made from fresh dough,” a spokesperson told Delish.
Romero was at a Litte Caesars at a K-Mart franchise location, where customers complained that they received expired DiGiorno pizzas.

“Because it was so close to closing time, the K-Mart manager directed his employee to temporarily store them in a cooler adjacent to the Little Caesars location for disposal in the morning,” the spokesperson said. “I can confirm that no DiGiorno pizzas were baked or served at this Little Caesars location.”
Original report: A Twitter user appeared to catch his local Little Caesars Pizza chain red-handed with DiGiorno frozen pizza, and DiGiorno is just as confused as everyone else.
“This can’t be happening right in front of me,” the Twitter user captioned the video.

The viral tweet got the attention of DiGiorno and Chissy Teigen, who is the author of two cookbooks.
