It was Monday night… pizza night… but my pizza buddy had a project deadline to meet… so instead of making some homemade pizza, I stopped by the store to indulge in a treat. And by treat, I don’t mean ice cream for dinner, but my other favorite thing in the freezer aisle: frozen pizza!
On days when my Dad was on shift (as a firefighter), my mom and I would “treat” ourselves to fun meals every so often… and frozen pizza was definitely one of those treats. But now my cravings are a bit different, so the giant pepperoni pizza with cheese-stuffed crust just doesn’t look as appetizing as it used to. Luckily I had a free coupon to try out one of the new FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™ pizzas… and opting for the Bruschetta pizza was a mighty smart decision!
(First off… I have to say something about this packaging! It’s my pet peeve that I have to throw away so much packaging from frozen pizzas, since none of the cardboard can be recycled, but this case is so much better! Still a bit evil… but we’re getting there people with 30% less packaging!)
The frozen version of the pizza actually looked really nice and fresh…
And the cooked version came out super crispy (cooked directly on the oven rack) and quite flavorful! I was honestly a bit surprised how much flavor was in it, and how filling just a few pieces were! Because… when you indulge in frozen pizza on your own… it usually ends up entirely devoured by that one singular person too… oy! Overall I was really impressed with this brand, and would definitely try another one of the 7 other varieties in the future.
