Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust Review and Giveaway

Being from NJ means several things:

1. I tawk like this. In case you missed it, there was an accent there. It seems people from NJ sound different from the rest of the world. Maybe, but it sounds normal to me.

2. I know the quickest route to any mall because there is a Turnpike or Parkway exit every mile.

3. I know what pizza and bagels are supposed to taste like – usually the exact opposite of the way they taste in Florida – with the exception of those few places that actually ship the water in from up north.

My knowledge of good pizza pretty much makes me qualified to  review all things pizza. While I love real NY style pizza, it can get expensive. And if it isn’t authentic why pay those prices for a cheap imitation? Sometimes I prefer to make pizza in my own house. Besides, the little people like to help and love adding their own toppings. Pillsbury makes it easy to enjoy healthier pizza made in my own kitchen at a reasonable cost.

Pillsbury’s artisan crust has whole grain so it is nutritious while it tastes great. It has 16 grams of whole grain per serving. This dough is availablePB_FreshIngredients in the refrigerated section of most grocery stores and big box food retailers; here in Florida I got it at Publix. With fresh ingredients from the local farmers’ market or grocery store produce section, I can create gourmet pizza in minutes while spending quality time in the kitchen with the family. Spinach and mushrooms with lots of garlic are my absolute favorite! Bruce is easy and simple – just cheese and a little bit of sauce for him. Ryan prefers white pizza with fresh ricotta and mozzarella.

Pizza is one of the few things we can make together as a family. Bruce loves “make your own pizza” nights.  And anytime I can get help in the kitchen, I won’t pass up that chance. This also allows everyone to get the perfect pizza without spending $50 for 3 large pizzas no one can finish.

The artisan crust isn’t just for pizza night dinners. We often have appetizer palooza days at my office. This dough makes the perfect base for any appetizer. Pillsbury has lots of recipe ideas here.

Pillsbury and My Blog Spark sent me an entire kit to help me with family pizza night. I received the following items (retail value = $64):ArtisanFreshIgredients_PrizePack

    Sometimes we make our own dough and add a little garlic butter atop our pepperoni, feta, spinach pizzas. Yummy!

    Anna says:

    Italians like to keep it simple. We combined the following three toppings to derive an exquisite flavor explosion. All on a whole wheat crust:

    Fontina cheese

    Fennel and onions are caramelized, of course. Drizzle with herbed olive oil and you won’t remember why you never ate fennel before.

    This sounds interesting! We usually make our own dough, but I’d definitely be up for trying this time saver! I think we like pretty “normal” toppings- veggies, meat, various cheeses. Making pizza on the grill is always a treat. One of our favorite things to make is a dessert pizza with the leftover dough. The kids’ favorite is sprinkling the dough with chopped chocolate and mini marshmallows and then sprinkling graham cracker crumbs on top. They call it a sm’izza.
