Freschetta Simply Inspired, a review and GIVEAWAY!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Freschetta has a new line of frozen pizzas, and I was given the opportunity to try the new line.  This coincided perfectly with a crazy night in the Feisty home, so BAJ went to the store and picked up one of Freschetta's Simply Inspired pizzas.  He chose Chicken Bianco, because they only other variety available at our store had pepperoni, of which I am not a fan.  (I assume this lack of variety was because it's a newer product.  FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™'s website lists 8 kinds of pizza, many of which sound awesome to me!)



I have to say, I was dubious that this thin crust pizza would be enough for us.  The packaging states that a serving is 1/3 of the pizza, but we cut ours in typical 8 slice fashion, an with a side salad, 2 slices was enough for me.
We thought this was fantastic.  It's really tasty, and though we're not typically white pizza fans, I really enjoyed the sauce on top.  This variety was particularly great because you've got all your food groups on one pie--protein in the chicken, carbs, dairy, and veggies (olives, roasted red peppers, spinach).  It's also reasonable in the calorie department, coming in at 360 calories for 1/3 of the pie.  As New Jersey residents, we have a certain understanding of what pizza crust is all about, and thin crust typically doesn't meet it.  This was good anyway, because it wasn't cracker like, as so many thin crust pizzas tend to be.
As someone who tries to be mindful of reducing her family's impact on the planet, it can be hard to buy convenience foods.  But, Freschetta has a new packaging for this product, which their website claims saves paperboard, trees, and fuel because it uses 30% less packaging.  But you don't lose any of the quality, either.  The pizza tasted delicious and fresh.

There are few pizza toppings that I do not like, but my favorite are just cheese, basil, and garlic.
