I was recently contacted by Freschetta to do a review of their new FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™ pizza line, and I have to say I was THRILLED!
Lucky for them, Freschetta has been our absolute go-to frozen pizza choice for several years. Ever since we discovered the mushroom/roasted garlic/spinach pizza, we pretty much always have one or two in the freezer for those nights when we just don’t feel like cooking. Plus, even without a coupon, they’re only $6 at max – who can beat $6 for a pizza!? In fact, here’s my messy freezer now:
Needless to say, we’re really impressed with the flavors and the quality of Freschetta (the proof is in the pudding, er freezer!), so a *new* line of Freschetta gourmet pizzas is right down our alley.
To try out the Simply Inspired line, we chose the Harvest Supreme variety, which is not exactly your standard “supreme” pizza… but I’ll get to that.
The first thing I noticed was the packaging – Freschetta is using a new type of packaging that not only keeps the pizza fresh, but it’s 30% less material than their standard packaging. For those of us always looking to throw less into the landfill, this is really great. The fact that companies are now taking notice and making efforts to minimize packaging is even greater!
If you only had smellavision, you would understand when I say that when this pizza is cooking, it doesn’t smell like a “supreme” pizza. It smells like a gourmet pizza oven restaurant where you walk in and marvel at the mixture of herbs and veggies and meats making up the Italian bouquet of aromas (seriously.)
Something about the spinach, feta cheese (mmmmm), and the sun-dried tomatoes really kicked it up to primo status – those particular toppings really sealed the deal for me. I’ll even admit that I don’t care for “supreme” pizza in general, but I loved this version. I think calling it “supreme” actually detracts a little, because it’s way better, and had I not looked closely at the toppings, I probably would’ve passed it up for another variety. To add to the experience, the crust is thin and crispy – just the way I like it (because you don’t fill up on bread and can eat one more slice!)
Did I also mention the gorgeous cutting board I received from Freschetta? (I have a cutting board, yes, but it’s not nearly so classy as this one.) Made of bamboo, it has slots for utensils and a cute little dish for say….some olive oil and balsamic for our next Italian night?
Alright, alright, so you know I really liked this pizza. And you know I got a cool, new cutting board that really adds a certain panache to my kitchen…
BUT – did you know YOU CAN WIN A FREE PIZZA AND CUTTING BOARD, TOO???
That’s right! Freschetta sent me an extra cutting board and a coupon for a free Simply Inspired pizza to give away to one of my readers so you can experience it for yourself! Your cutting board is a little different style, too – check it out…
First, it’s a cutie round cutting surface:
And then BAM – it slides open to reveal some neatly tucked away utensils (talk about a storage solution!)
