We’ve talked about the fact that Tim and I regularly make our own pizzas at home. It is cheap, it’s kind of fun, and after tweaking our recipes here and there, it is also quite tasty!
But it is certainly more work than picking up a frozen pizza while I’m doing some grocery shopping. So from time to time, we do get a frozen pizza. Several years ago, we experimented with lots of different types of frozen pizzas, trying to determine which one was the very best for the price. There was a CLEAR winner, people. Like, by a landslide. It was FRESCHETTA. Other than trying out some organic options and the Nutrisystem fare, we haven’t had any other brand of frozen pizza in YEARS. There’s no reason to…FRESCHETTA is just that good, in my opinion.
So today I’m excited to tell you about a very interesting new product the FRESCHETTA has on the market, called By the Slice. It is a single slice cut from a whole FRESCHETTA pizza. There’s nothing different about the ingredients in a By the Slice pizza. But what IS different is that it can be microwaved, so that you can get your yummy pizza even faster.
We tried By the Slice, and here are my thoughts:
- In terms of overall quality, I am very pleasantly surprised. Yup, it tastes just like the FRESCHETTA that I know and love!
- The portion is generous and the flavor choices are quite good (six cheese medley; bbq recipe chicken; chicken, spinach and mushroom; vegetable medley)
- If Tim had to work through lunch at his job, this would be a great option for him to bring along. Pizza is one of his very favorite foods, and getting to have a slice of FRESCHETTA instead of a cup of soup or a peanut butter sandwich would really be a treat.
Since Tim almost always eats lunch at home, this particular product isn’t the right fit for my family. We eat 2/3 of a pizza in one sitting, so we’d be microwaving quite a few By the Slice pizzas slices for one meal. For us, it just makes more sense to cook an entire pizza. But I do see this as a great choice for people who find themselves flying solo for lunch or dinner, or who want to eat something tasty very quickly.
