My family loves pizza, especially my husband and two boys. This weekend they managed to eat pizza for three meals. I have a soft part in my heart for pizza as well. Not just ordinary everyday pizza, but pizza with a great crust and quality toppings. Finding new products that I can use at home to save time, while still having great taste on my pizza is something that is important to me. I hate it when I find something that looks great on the shelf, but fails to live up to expectation once I prepare it at home. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try American Flat Bread and Rustic Crust products in my home kitchen.
The products that I tried were:
- Basil and Sea Salt Ciabatta Flat Bread
- Twisted 6 Cheese American Flat Bread Pizza
- Farmer's Tomato Pie American Flat Bread Pizza
- Sliced Tomato and 5 Cheese American Flat Bread Pizza
The picture above is of the Farmer's Tomato Pie. Since I don't eat gluten my two boys and husband were my taste testers. They were very happy with the opportunity to help out! All three of them really enjoyed all the pizzas. My youngest and husband were big fans of the Twisted Six Cheese while my oldest preferred the Sliced Tomato and Five Cheese. They all agreed that they had a great crust and tasted like they contained high quality ingredients.
For the Basil and Sea Salt Ciabatta Rustic Crust I thought outside the box. My family loves my homemade Cincinnati Style Chili Pizza, so I decided to try it with this product. Here is the recipe:
- 1 Basil and Sea Salt Ciabatta Rustic Crust
- 1/2 can of Cincinnati style chili (Skyline, Dixie, Gold Star)
- 6-8oz of mild shredded cheddar cheese
- French fried onions
Preheat oven to temp specified on package (450 degrees). Pour off fat layer of chili. Spread chili over crust. Sprinkle cheese evenly over chili. Turn oven down to 425 degrees and place pizza in oven directly on rack. Allow pizza to cook for 10 minutes. Add french fried onions to top. Place back in oven until crust and onions are browned. That's it, so yummy! My husband and two boys thought this was the best store bought crust that I have used for making Cincinnati style chili pizza. It was definitely a hit.
All the products that I tried were great. They would definitely be something I would try again, especially when I was short on time.
Interested in learning more about their products? Here are the links to their facebook pages, it would really help if you could give one or both of their pages a like. They are trying to increase their facebook likes, so every like would help!
