Freschetta Flatbread Giveaway

by on May 17, 2010 · 131 comments

A few weeks ago the Freschetta team sent our family a pizza gift pack.  They’ve set one aside for a reader, and if you’d like a shot at it then read on.

The point of the coupons was to introduce Freschetta’s line of flatbread.   There are four flavors in the line, but Freschetta recommended two in particular – Italian Style and Roasted Garlic.

First we tried Italian Style. It had a sweet and spicy tomato sauce topped with pepperoni, Genoa salami and sausage. The sauce had a distinctive blend of flavors and the crust was light, flakey, and rich – almost like a cross between pie crust, a croissant and pizza dough.  I liked the flavors in the sauce and thought the crust was interesting. 

Next up was the Roasted Garlic and Spinach flavored flatbread.  Our family usually eats pizza as an entrée, so I cut the pizza into thirds and served each section with large salads. This flatbread, with the creamy white sauce, sweet roasted garlic, spinach and cheese was a surprise winner in that the family liked it even better than the Italian style.   It seems like a crowd pleaser and since the flatbread is light yet rich, I may start serving it thinly sliced as an appetizer or party snack.

 

If you like frozen pizza, the new Freschetta flatbreads are worth a try. And if you’d like to a chance at the gift pack (with free coupons), here’s what to do.

Write a comment below telling me what you drink with pizza.  I like Sangiovese — especially with tomato based pizzas. I also like Root Beer.

I will pick a comment at random tomorrow night (Tuesday the 18th) at midnight, so if you post after midnight your comment will not be eligible for the gift pack. You can still tell me what you like to drink, though!

By the way, if you’ve already tried Freschetta pizza and want to say something about it, check out Freschetta’s Facebook page and let them know your thoughts.    You can also follow Freschetta on Twitter.

Also, as I write this there’s a dollar off coupon on the Freschetta web page.

Hmm…I usually drink water just in general but if I’m drinking a soda, I like root beer and coke with pizza. My dad is a Dr. Pepper guy and my mom likes Diet Rite.

Becki May 17, 2010 at 2:54 pm

DIET Dr. Pepper–it’s all a matter of balance!

Pamela M May 17, 2010 at 2:55 pm

Sauvignon Blanc! Thanks for offering this Anna!

Debbi Does Dinner Healthy May 17, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Diet coke would be my favorite but I’ve given up pop. :-( So I pretty much only drink water. Boring but healthier.

Maureeb May 17, 2010 at 3:04 pm

Grape Soda. Not sure why, but it is a MUST that whenever we have pizza, mom gets a grape soda. Ya know, it is the ONLY time I drink a sickly, sweet grape soda.

Stacie May 17, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Either sparkling water (Perrier is really good with pizza!) or cream soda! Yum! There’s something about drinking soda and eating pizza that makes you feel like a kid again!

Suzy May 17, 2010 at 3:09 pm

Either diet coke (at lunch) or beer (at dinner!)

Janetta May 17, 2010 at 3:11 pm

I’ve got to agree with Stacie, I love eating pizza with sparkling water or even ice water with lemon!

Tracy M May 17, 2010 at 3:17 pm

As strange as this may sound, I actually enjoy a nice tall glass of ice cold milk with my pizza. Ginger Ale runs a close second though;-)

Tina May 17, 2010 at 3:17 pm

Diet Dr. Pepper

Katrina May 17, 2010 at 3:19 pm

Well, I’m as boring as can be, but I drink water. I have to save where I can and I try not to drink my calories. I love diet sodas, but try not to even drink those and don’t hardly ever.

Sarah May 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm

i feel like i’m 5, not 25, but milk is great w/ pizza :)

Cupcake Activist May 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm

I agree, Root Beer is my favorite pizza drink too.

Juli May 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm

Coke with a squeeze of lemon

DMR May 17, 2010 at 3:21 pm

Ah… Carona or a glass of white zin!

Kim May 17, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Red table wine mixed with Diet Coke, Yum!

valen May 17, 2010 at 3:24 pm

I just drink water nowadays, but as a kid I loved oj, yes that does sound gross and it is gross to me now, but as a kid I loved it.

Katrina T May 17, 2010 at 3:25 pm

Sounds great! I love pizzas AND flatbreads.

Amy May 17, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Beer or red wine!

Kim May 17, 2010 at 3:28 pm

I love to drink sprite or anything grape!

Jeanette May 17, 2010 at 3:28 pm

The garlic and spinach pizza sounds delicious! My fingers are crossed! We like to eat pizza on Wednesday nights after soccer practice. It’s always quick and easy. We usually just drink water, but often with pizza we have root beer or sprite. Thanks for the chance, Jeanette at thealldays@msn(dot)com

Gwen Howell May 17, 2010 at 3:30 pm

Diet Coke!

Beth May 17, 2010 at 3:30 pm

I drink milk! My husband drinks coke with it.

Kerstin May 17, 2010 at 3:38 pm

What a fun giveaway! I’m a Diet Coke fan!

Chris Mower May 17, 2010 at 3:42 pm

I usually just drink water with pizza… but when I’m feeling like splurging I might pair it with root beer or coke.

Carol G May 17, 2010 at 3:51 pm

I like a nice red wine…..Merlot, Shiraz. They will do.

Caroline May 17, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Cabernet! Or a good ol beer.

Annika May 17, 2010 at 4:11 pm

We have pizza every Sunday night! I normally drink sparkling water with my pizza, but for a treat I really like a milkshake!

amy c May 17, 2010 at 4:17 pm

soda, which means caffeine free diet coke =)

Penny May 17, 2010 at 4:47 pm

I usually drink plain old water, seltzer water or homemade iced tea with meals. On special occasions we have diet root beer or cream soda.

karen May 17, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Grape koolaid!

Martha in KS May 17, 2010 at 5:00 pm

Ooh, pizza is my favorite food & Freschetta brand is a fave. I enjoy Coke with a squeeze of lemon & Sierra Mist.

NC May 17, 2010 at 5:13 pm

I tend to drink white wine with everything…probably means I should branch out a bit more

Meryl May 17, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Iced tea.

itsrenee May 17, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Depending on the company I am keeping: beer, red wine or Diet Dr. Pepper caffeine free . . .in no particular order . . well maybe just the first two in no particular order (grin).

Niki May 17, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Cherry Dr. Pepper!

Judy May 17, 2010 at 5:27 pm

We like Root Beer also. Sometimes we switch to Orange Soda.

yatesy May 17, 2010 at 5:37 pm

I’ll be honest, I love drinking beer with pizza. Magic Hat’s Circus Boy is a good one, something light that swirls around my stomach well with the pizza sauce :)

Jane May 17, 2010 at 5:44 pm

I drink diet Coke with my pizza, but every once in a while I go crazy and throw in a shot of Jameson. Okay, 1/4 shot. I am a lightweight.

Valentina May 17, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Beer all the way!
