Pizza Party with Gluten Free Freshetta

I don't know about you but by Friday night I am done. My energy is gone and the last thing I want to do is cook dinner. Which makes Friday night the perfect night for a family pizza party night, And yes, it still counts as a party if we have a pizza party every Friday night. I received a Freshetta pizza kit as a Smiley360 blogger in exchange for this review, all opinions are mine and no further compensation was provided.

I teach special ed preschool and I'm a mom to three young kids. By the end of the week I am fried. I don't want to cook dinner and worry about what I can make that everyone will like. Which is why Friday is pizza and movie night in my house.

Camping out in front of the movie is a fun treat!

There is nothing like snuggling up with my family and watching a movie at the end of the week. We always make pizza for dinner. It's easy, no one has to order or answer the door when you make pizza. We just pop two pizzas in the oven and eat in front of the TV. It's really the perfect way to end a work week with my family. There's almost nothing to clean up, good bonding time, and everyone can relax. What else could you want on a Friday night?

A few years ago my twins were diagnosed with Vitiligo and they went gluten free as part of their treatment. Let me tell you, going gluten free is a hard transition. It's not impossible but it is tough. Especially for kids who love things like pizza, pasta, and bread. If there's a gluten free product most likely we have tried it.

Of course not all gluten free products are made equal, especially when it comes to pizza. We've tried every gluten free pizza on the market and the Freshetta pizza got rave reviews from all 5 of us. Like all gluten free pizza it's a thin crust. Unlike many gluten free pizza's it does not taste like a cracker. The crust is thin and very crispy but it has a more breadlike texture than a cracker texture. This is very important for my twins.

As a mom I liked that the pizza wasn't greasy when it came out of the oven. There is nothing worse than pulling a pizza out of the oven and seeing tons of grease. I took this picture straight from the oven, no blotting needed.

My kids said they liked that it didn't taste gluten free. Which means that they are used to gluten free products being inferior and this one wasn't. Trust me that is high praise coming from my picky kids. My husband and I really liked it too. Our oldest liked the pizza but didn't like the crust. That was the only complaint that the pizza got from the five of us.

So now you know, you don't have to give up flavor to get a great gluten free pizza. Freshetta Gluten Free pizza is available at your local Wal-Mart. Pick one up today for your pizza party.
