Princess Nagger is a picky eater, and in some ways she may have gotten that picky mode from me. I’m not a fan of frozen pizza, my preference is fresh baked or homemade – or ordering it from a specific pizza place that actually has pizza that doesn’t taste like cardboard.
There are only a couple of pizza brands that I actually do like their frozen pizza – and like to keep them on hand in our downstairs freezer for those nights when we’re in a rush and I don’t have time to make dinner. Or just for fun.
Ellio’s Pizza happens to be one that not only the kids love, but I do too:
Ellio’s uses fresh ingredients like vine-ripened tomatoes, 100% real cheese and a freshly rolled crust. I usually get the biggest box available at BJ’s:
That way there’s always some available for a quick weekend lunch or when time has gotten away from me and I’ve forgotten to stop doing whatever I’m doing to get dinner started. Ahem. We love the cheese version because then we can each add our own toppings at will – the hubby and Little Dude prefer adding pepperoni (especially if it’s extra spicy) where Princess Nagger and I will leave it in its cheesy state or add Canadian bacon and pineapple. Or mushrooms and olives. Or just about anything we think sounds good.
They’re handily packaged so you only have to take out three slices at a time (three rectangles that you break apart from each other) – which works out great because if it’s just me and the kids, three is all we need. Or if the hubby is joining in on the fun, he usually needs two slices to fill his belly, which makes Little Dude decide he wants two slices – whereas Princess Nagger and myself stick with just one slice each. See? Still works out perfect.
Even though we pretty much stick with just cheese, you might be interested to know Ellio’s Pizza is available in other varieties:
- Italian Sausage and Pepperoni
- Extra Cheese
The hubby said he might want to try the Italian Sausage and Pepperoni or the Supreme next time, so I’ll probably be getting him his own box.
