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.

Believe it or not, I love to drink milk with pizza. I just love it together. Weird huh?

mrsblocko May 17, 2010 at 6:13 pm

Root beer or iced tea.

Ronna Farley May 17, 2010 at 6:20 pm

We just drink water… that boring or what?! :)

Mary May 17, 2010 at 6:28 pm

usually iced tea but I often have to follow pizza with a glass of milk at the end of the meal … tomato sauces often give me heartburn, but the milk usually settles my stomach.

Sue May 17, 2010 at 6:33 pm

For me pizza and beer are naturals together. Now, I’m really interested in the wine you mentioned!

Evelyn @ cheers2healthy May 17, 2010 at 6:46 pm

I have to say, my favorite drink with pizza is a coke with ice. No messing around there!

Lexi Cotcamp May 17, 2010 at 6:56 pm

Water with a squeeze of lemon because it offsets the saltiness :]

Hannah May 17, 2010 at 7:19 pm

I love drinking milk with my pizza!

Tracy May 17, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Oh, the best beverage to go with pizza is Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi. I’m not fussy as to the brand. I haven’t tried that brand, but my family sure does eat frozen pizza!

CL May 17, 2010 at 7:41 pm

I like to drink Pepsi, with my pizza.

Allie May 17, 2010 at 8:58 pm

It depends on the pizza and where I am eating it. If in an Italian restaurant, I like to enjoy it with a glass of red wine, like a Pinot. If at home and enjoying a frozen pizza, I always like it with s big glass of sweet tea.

Sondra May 17, 2010 at 9:10 pm

Diet Dr Pepper for me.

Carole Resnick May 17, 2010 at 10:33 pm

Since I take so much medication I can’t drink beer or wine. Most of the time I drink I fruit flavored, calorie free diet drink. In the summer I drink a home brewed flavored iced tea, mango and passion fruit being my favorites.

Jennifer May 17, 2010 at 10:44 pm

Either a beer (Avery’s Ellies Brown is my favorite) or root beer.

Betsy May 17, 2010 at 10:50 pm

Beer or Little Boomey Cabernet. YUM!

Ice cold Coca-Cola all the way! If I’m at a restaurant that serves Pepsi products, I will have Sierra Mist. I dislike Pepsi that much!

Liz May 18, 2010 at 8:34 am

Usually I just drink water. But occasionally I like root beer or diet V8 juice (the fruit flavors – not veggie).

Diet Coke or a glass of Pinot Grigio – just depends on how the work day went!
