Hi, friends!

Wedding planning is going great! I just never realized how much time it takes. We are at the 5 month mark now so I need to keep the momentum going. I promise I will share the upcoming wedding stuff with you all!

Since weekends have been so busy, I was happy when I was asked if I wanted to review Freschetta’s newest gluten-free pizza.

Although I eat gluten, it is always nice to be knowledge about different products. But Kristen, this is pizza and you are an RD?? Yes, that is true. But like all other things, pizza CAN (and should in my opinion) be enjoyed in moderation.  I mean, who wants to live in a world where you can’t have pizza?

The stats aren’t all that bad if you are looking for a quick Friday night dinner (but be sure to serve alongside some veggies to round out the meal :) ). ¼ of the pizza comes in at 320 calories. Not shabby! And although the ingredient list is a bit longer, all the ingredients are recognizable.

Tony was about this since he LOVES Freschetta pizzas. They sent me the 4 cheese medley variety to sample which is a combination of mozzarella, fontina, parmesan, and asiago. The cheese lover in me was super excited since all those cheeses get an A+ in my book!  I swear, as soon as I opened the box swanky fiancé insisted we put one in the oven now to sample. Ha. The perks of being with a food blogger.

Now, I have tried many a gluten-free product before. I have liked some and some I have not.

For a pizza, I really wasn’t too sure what to expect.  Let me tell you, our minds were blown! This pizza was just delicious. The crust was thin, crispy and flaky.  I really would have a difficult time telling it apart from a thin crust pizza with gluten.

And of course, I have to point out the ooey gooey cheesiness that is on top. YUMMM!

Tony raved that it lived up to any other Freschetta pizza that he has tried.

We really enjoyed this treat! It so nice that people with gluten-free allergies can still enjoy some delicious foods…especially pizza!  Since many are still weary that a product labeled gluten-free might still contain gluten, this brand can put your mind at ease. This pizza is approved by the Celiac Sprue Association.

A big thanks to Freschetta for letting me try this product. If you are interested in trying it out, Freschetta has a great search link to find specific products in your area.

*disclaimer: This product was sent to me for free. As always, my opinions are honest and my own.

What is your favorite gluten-free product if you have tried any?
