Rustic Crust and American Flatbread Review and Giveaway

I love pizza.  Just about any kind of pizza.  Cheap, expensive, homemade, takeout, delivery, frozen, I like it all.  Luckily, so does my family.  In fact, Joey asks me if he can have pizza for dinner every night.  Imagine his excitement last week when my answer was, "YES!  We can have pizza tonight!"

I made the pizza we had myself.  Well, no, actually I didn't make it myself.  I assembled it using already-made ingredients.  I was recently asked to review two delicious products: Rustic Crust and American Flatbread Frozen Pizzas, which came in quite handy for Joey's requests for pizza.


I used my Rustic Crust coupon at our local Whole Foods Market and decided on the Cheesy Herb variety.  Anything that has "cheesy" in it's name is a go in my book.


I loaded it with some sauce, cheese, and mini pepperoni.  Here's a shot before it went in the oven:
Ten minutes later, dinner was ready:


It was a hit.  Katelyn licked the plate, Joey asked for more, Ron ate 3 pieces, and Olivia pushed all the pieces into the corner of her tray, but ate the crust with delight.



A few days later we tried the American Flatbread Frozen Pizza for lunch.  (Joey loves this whole blogging thing because it allows him to get pizza twice in 1 week!)  Also at Whole Foods, I didn't have much of a choice, so I took the only kind that was in stock: Ionian Awakening.  (3 other varieties were sold out!)  This individual sized pizza has red onions, garlic, fresh rosemary, feta cheese, and olives on it.  I'm not a huge fan of olives, but I was willing to pick them off for the sake of reviewing what sounded like a fabulous product.  And it surely was.  This tasted like a real greek pizza that you would order in a restaurant.  The toppings tasted fresh, the crust was crispy but not overly so, and the pizza had lots of cheese on it.  Even Joey liked it despite it's unique flavors that are quite different from his usual peanut butter and jelly lunches.
Are you wanting pizza yet?  You are?  Great!  I've got a prize pack including coupons for FREE Rustic Crust and American Flatbread products, as well as other goodies for a lucky reader!  All you have to do to enter is tell me what your favorite kind of pizza is.  Then do some or all of the following to earn up to 10 additional entries! (leave an additional comment for each entry.)

We go to the restaurant every year when we go up to VT. It was their first restaurant and one of the places they make the frozen pizza! I've never tried it frozen but I might have to now :)
