FRESCHETTA® Pizza By the Slice {review & giveaway} CLOSED

This post brought to you by FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

How do you like your pizza? Pan crust, thin crust, mushrooms, extra sauce, ham, onions or pepperoni? I personally really like a thick crust pizza with extra sauce and just plain cheese. My kids love pan crust with pepperoni. Then there is the hubby who loves BBQ chick pizza, Hawaiian style pizza and just about anything you can think of to top a pizza with.

When we make pizza for dinner I often have to make several pizzas to keep everyone happy. Then we are eating pizza for days due to the extras. Times like those would be perfect for pizza by the slice.

Freschetta, has created a single serving slice of pizza that can be prepared and ready to eat in a few minutes with their new FRESCHETTA® By the Slice options. FRESCHETTA® By the Slice is a single slice cut from a whole pizza with the same ingredients found in all FRESCHETTA frozen Pizzas. These single serving pizzas are available in BBQ Recipe Chicken, Vegetable Medley, Chicken, Spinach & Mushroom and in a Six Cheese Medley. FRESCHETTA® By the Slice serves up one perfect slice of pizza in minutes, with fresh-tasting goodness straight from the microwave.

I know what your thinking! Microwaved pizza? Really? We have all had the pizza that is reheated in the microwave that becomes soggy and mushy. Or have tried to cook a frozen pizza in the microwave only to find the pizza mushy and no where near as good as an oven-cooked pizza would be. Surprisingly the FRESCHETTA® By the Slice Pizza is NOT soggy when cooked in the microwave!

I recently had the opportunity to review the new FRESCHETTA® By the Slice Pizza. Since I am a plain-pizza lover I opted for the Six Cheese Medley for myself and grabbed a BBQ Recipe Chicken for my husband to try out.

After about four minutes the pizza was cooked and the crust was crispy! Not overly crispy but similar to an oven cooked pizza. I can honestly say I am impressed at how well the pizza tasted after being cooked in my microwave. I am not sure how FRESCHETTA has pulled this one off, but it is yummy!

The Six Cheese pizza is made with two different styles of mozzarella and provolone, cheddar, fontina and Romano for a rich flavor. I generally do not care for provolone cheese, but mixed with the other cheeses it was good.

The BBQ Chicken pizza is made with white meat chicken, red peppers and red onions. The mozzarella and cheddar cheese come together in a zesty combination with a savory BBQ sauce. I am not an onion fan, but it smelled so good when it was cooked. It only took my hubby a few bites to have his entire slice gone!

The pizza tasted fresh and the crust was great. I also really like how convenient the By The Slice pizza is, especially when I am the only one eating. I would love to see the FRESCHETTA® By the Slice Pizza available in other varieties. Maybe a pepperoni (my kids would love), ham with pineapple or even a bacon.
