 Cooking instructions: 

FOR A PERFECT BRICK OVEN™ CRUST
Keep pizza frozen prior to baking.
For Crispier Crust:
1.  Preheat oven to 400°F.
2.  Remove the pizza from box and overwrap. Place pizza directly on center oven rack.
3.  Bake for 15 to 19 minutes
For Softer Crust:
1.  Preheat oven to 425°F.
2.  Remove the pizza from the box and over wrap.
3.  Place the pizza on pizza pan on the bottom oven rack. Bake for 17 to 21 minutes.
Refrigerate or discard any unused portions.
Due to oven variances, cooking times may require adjustment. Best results when one pizza is baked at a time.

My Experience



               If you are a big pizza lover, you know you cannot just eat one slice and go. We don't keep pizza in the freezer for this reason. When the opportunity came for me to try a new brick oven pizza by Freshetta, my first reaction was curiosity. I wanted to know what's so good about this frozen pizza. Well,  my experience with Freshetta was a good one. Last Sunday after church, I stopped by the store and picked up the one with Italian sausage, pepperoni, and a variety of vegetables. I heated the oven to 400 degrees,  laid the pizza flat on the middle rack, and let it cooked for about 18 minutes. My nephew had baseball practice and we wanted to feed him before leaving the house. We all like this pizza. From the meats,  the vegetables, to the last piece of crust, everything tasted so fresh.  Did I taste the "Brick Oven Crust"? Yes, I did! 
While the amount of fat was comparatively low, I found the pizza to be too salty. 780 micro-grams of salt is a lot of salt. Both my husband and my son thought that the amount of salt was just right.  I was also given two coupons to share with friends, and they liked it to. My daughter can't have pizza because she is allergic to both dairy and wheat, but my son really enjoyed it. 

              I think this  a pizza that you can keep in your freezer for a quick after school snack or a quick bite before practice.  Portion control is very important when it comes maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As for me? I'm not a big fan of frozen food. But if you are, the freshness of this pizza is worth every penny.  Have you tried this pizza before?

  4. I know what you mean! I use to purchase a lot of frozen pizzas, but when I started paying attention to the salt and sodium contained in them I stopped. It's really a lot and can cause you to swell.
