#Freschetta Pizza...A Review and Giveaway #Win

Freschetta FlatBread

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mention the word pizza at my house and everyone's happy. That includes mom. I mean, aside from my not having to slave over a  hot stove, it's a crowd pleaser. When we went out shopping for this pizza to be able to do this review I was amazed at the varieties. We were at one freezer and had made our selections, but we went down a couple more freezers and there were even more. We ended up exchanging some of the ones we had already picked out for some others. There are selections for meat lovers as well as vegetarians. From naturally rising to flatbread crusts.

The first pizza, I didn't get more than a bite. My husband took it out of the oven, just slightly overcooked, and cut it and before I knew it, my children had claimed about 2 slices each. I did asked them how they liked it, and they said it was great. On to pizza number two. My husband popped it into the oven and set the timer, but somehow it ended up somewhat over-cooked too. I don't know if it was just our oven, or if we needed to do the minimum time recommendation, so based on it being too done, I can't give a decent thought on it, but what I can give an honest review on is the one above. It's the Portabella Mushroom with Spinach Pizza that Freschetta makes.  I put this one in the oven myself. I had to tweet about it, because when I removed it from the packaging, it already looked delicious before it was even baked. I set the timer, and I guess my son opened the oven , before the timer went off, and let me know it was done. I would recommend that if you're setting a timer, to use the minimum baking time.

As you can see from the picture above, we caught this one just at the right time. The crust was the perfect combination of crispiness with a bit of tenderness. I wouldn't have thought of putting mushrooms and spinach together, but i'm so glad the folks at Freschetta did. It's an awesome combination. I wanted to save my husband a piece, because he was set to come home from work a short while later. I thought I wanted him to be able to try it too, but I wanted it for myself and gave him a call and talked him out of it, so that he wouldn't come home disappointed that I didn't save him any. Before he could say it was ok good, i'd picked it up, even before I got off of the phone with him, and started eating. I didn't want him to have time to change his mind. Maybe next time. Maybe.
