Freschetta Pizza. Yummy Yum Yum! a Giveaway!

Is there such a thing as bad pizza? Of course there is! There's bland, flavorless, soggy, icky. There's low quality toppings, too many toppings, too few. Then there's frozen pizza. I'm not usually a big advocate for frozen slices- I make handmade dough, age it for days in the fridge, and carefully top it for pennies.

Freschetta may have changed my mind on frozen pies. They sent me a lovely review package- six sturdy containers, along with coupons for two products to try- the Simply Inspired line, and the nice, crispy By The Slice line.

I think I ran to the store. We selected a Hawaiian Style Simply Inspired Pizza, and a six Cheese By the Slice. The store only had three of the varieties of the pizza By the Slice, and I would have liked it better if there was a meat only option, like pepperoni and sausage. There wasn't. The closest slice that would suit my finicky taster was the plain- so that's what I chose.

It was yummy! The crust was surprisingly delicious and pleasantly crunchy out of the microwave. It has just the right amount of robust sauce, and the cheese is perfect. I hate when you get a slice of pizza and an oily landslide of poor quality cheese just oozes right off. Freschetta's By the Slice is delicious, although you should bring a salad or another snack to go with it to make a full meal. Altogether, though, it's a nice, fresh slice of pizza with an appealing taste and aroma.

You can sign up for coupons here.


The Simply Inspired pizza I would definitely spend money on. Thin crust, crispy pizza is my absolute favorite, and it had just the right amount of Canadian bacon, pineapples, and smoky bacon for a very reasonable calorie lode. Since I'm a bit of a bacon-o-phile, I was a little disappointed in the bacon bits. I would prefer large chunks of crunchy pork fat- these were the smaller ones you would put on a salad, but very plentiful and flavorful.

So far there doesn't seem to be a wide variety of flavors offered, but the ones Freschetta is offering sound good. The vegetable medley sounds the best to me.
