Freschetta By The Slice - Review & Giveaway!


When I'm working at home, I tend to dive in deep. Sometimes I get so involved in my projects that I lose track of time and work right through lunch. When that happens, I want a quick, tasty lunch that doesn't take forever to prepare.

Recently, I was given the opportunity to try Freschetta's new By The Slice pizza. When it comes to pizza, I'm picky. I like a crisp crust and fresh ingredients. Many times, crisp crust and microwave pizza just don't belong in the same sentence. Usually, one just doesn't come with the other. 

I was really surprised that this wasn't the case with Freschetta By The Slice pizza. The crust was crisp and the slice was really delicious. Now, I've always been a fan of the Freschetta brand, but I never cooked the pizzas in the microwave. I always used the oven. The additional wait time was worth it for great tasting pizza. I was so thrilled to get that delicious, oven-cooked pizza experience from the microwave!

 The new Freschetta By The Slice pizzas come in 4 different varieties:
  • BBQ Recipe Chicken
  • Vegetable Medley
  • Chicken, Spinach & Mushroom
  • Six Cheese Medley
I love veggies on my pizza, so I chose the Vegetable Medley to try. The medley includes black olives (my favorite!) and mushrooms, as well as red, green and yellow peppers. I was really impressed with the quality of the slice I made. It was delicious and the veggies tasted really fresh!


Freschetta is offering a great prize package to one of my readers! One reader will receive a free coupon so they can try Freschetta's By The Slice for themselves and a 3 piece Freschetta storage container set!
