The Evolution of Pizza

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FRESCHETTA® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a pizza guy. It is probably my favorite food. As a pizza delivery guy, I get to eat my fair share of fresh pizzeria pizza. It is the perfect food.  With the right toppings, you can get all four food groups on your pizza.  You have your crust from the bread group, cheese from the dairy group, tomato sauce for your veggie group, and of course pepperoni and sausage from the meat group.  A completely well balanced meal.

Sometimes, though, finances make picking up a pizzeria pizza more of a treat than a staple.  That is why every now and then I like to pick up a frozen pizza. In a previous life, I was a frozen food category manager, and frozen pizza was one of my categories.  I got to see frozen pizza go from bland cardboard tasting pizza to the delicious rising crust style of pizzas.

Freschetta was one of my favorite brands of rising crust pizza, usually the three meat variety.  Now, I will eat just about any style crust of pizza, but my wife is partial to thin crust pizzas.  Thankfully, the folks at Freschetta were not content to rest on the laurels of their rising crust pizza and have now introduced FRESCHETTA® Simply…Inspired™

The folks at Freschetta gave me the opportunity to try one of their new thin crust Simply Inspired pizzas by sending me a coupon for free pizza.  My wife and I tried the Classic Bruschetta variety which consists of four cheeses, real tomatoes, and a tomato and garlic pesto sauce.  It was very tasty.  I think I would also enjoy their Hawaiian Style or Southern BBQ Chicken.

One look at the package of the Freschetta Simply Inspired pizza and I knew right away that this was not your daddy's frozen pizza.  They use their unique FRESCH-TASTE-SEAL package to help seal in the unique flavor offerings.  For those of you who care about waste, the package uses 30% less material than a typical frozen pizza box.  That is a good thing.

The other good thing is that Freschetta is giving me the opportunity to let one of my readers try one of the eight delicious varieties of Freschetta Simply Inspired pizzas.  In addition to a coupon for a free pizza, they have given me a round bamboo cutting board as well. For the next two weeks, everybody who comments about which variety they would want to try will be entered into a drawing to win a free pizza and the cutting board.  You can follow them on Twitter @FreschettaSI or "Like" them on Facebook.
