Boboli Pizza Crust {Review}

Boboli logoI don't know about you, but I feel like each year it takes me a little longer to recover from the holidays. Even though it is halfway through January already, there seems to be a considerable portion of my brain that is still grasping for a few more days of rest and relaxation.

So when it comes to the kitchen, I've found myself even more on the hunt for quick, easy and tasty meals than usual. I want to spend less time cooking but have it result in creations that my whole family is going to enjoy... is that too much to ask?

Not when Boboli ready-made pizza crusts have made it possible to customize your pizza perfectly, whether for a family night in, quick appetizers for dinners with friends or a great starting slate for those leftovers from last night’s dinner. Simply personalize, prepare, bake and eat!

Boboli pizza crustsDelicious Boboli pizza crusts are just the thing to help with all of my home cooking needs, from tasty pizzas to delicious desserts. Whether the menu calls for veggie pizzas or fruit pizzas (or anything in between), Boboli products can help get you started and on your way to a meal that will receive rave reviews.

There's no need to compromise on toppings and families can create pizza recipe options to satisfy anyone's craving or need, from fun and cheesy to nutritious and delicious. The versatile crusts, available in 8" and 12" sizes and Original, 100% Whole Wheat and Thin Crust, offer endless customization ideas. Plus, all Boboli products are cholesterol-free and have zero grams of trans fat. It's a win-win!

Fortunately for me, not only was I given the opportunity to feed my family a tasty pizza, but Boboli's Chef Mark (a Brooklyn-born chef that has worked in a 5-star restaurant) helped point me towards Boboli's A Taste of Italy recipe when I told him pizza toppings that I typically enjoy. All that was left to do was put this custom pizza together and give it a try!

Boboli recipeA Taste of Italy

12" Boboli Original Pizza Crust
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 tsp salt
Fresh basil, sliced
Pinch of Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 450°. Brush pizza crust with olive oil. Drain fresh Mozzarella and thinly slice. Place cheese slices on the crust. Spread diced tomatoes over entire crust. Sprinkle salt and Italian seasoning over all ingredients. Snip fresh basil leaves to cover the other ingredients. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and enjoy!

I love the taste of basil, so I left my pieces nice and large as I put together this quick and easy recipe.

homemade pizzaI ended up taking my pizza out of the oven at the 8-minute mark because the cheese was melting and dripping off (mental note: next time don't place the cheese so close to the edges), but I think it could have used to have stayed in a little longer to fully brown.

But even with the early removal, the results still looked delicious!

pizza at homeMmmm! We sliced this up and the sound of contented munching was all that was heard.

Boboli reviewThe combination of the toppings with the tasty Boboli crust was a perfect match and we weren't even done with the meal before Big Sister E was asking when we were going to have this pizza again. I'd call that a hit!

With the easy customization, quick assembly, and mouth-watering results, I have no doubt that we'll be having Boboli again in the future. Available in major supermarkets nationwide, keep an eye out for these pizza crusts in a store near you and be sure to connect with Boboli on Facebook for coupons, offers, recipes and inspiration for your next dinner.

(Other than the information and sample that I was sent by Boboli, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my opinion of this company and their tasty products.)

Boboli is my go-to pizza crust. Their whole wheat is yummy. Kids love their thin crust. That pizza looks delish!
