Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain {Review & Prize Pack Giveaway}

Pillsbury logo
While out with friends recently, I marveled when one of them commented about how often her family eats homemade pizza.

We're just tired of delivery or store-bought, I guess, she shrugged. So we make our own.

Well, sure. That's understandable. Spreading some sauce and cheese on some pre-made dough isn't really all that difficult, it's something even my limited cooking skills can handle.

But, wait... you don't make the crust yourself too, do you?

Sure enough, she does.

I bow down to you, efficient, productive, inspiring mother. (I also want to know where in the world you find the time?)

For the rest of us, it is easy to not only enjoy the fresh, flavorful taste of homemade pizza right at home, but we can now also rest easy knowing that our family is getting 16 grams of whole grain per serving thanks to Pillsbury and their Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain.

Fresh Ingredients

Feel like celebrating the return of barbeque weather? How about whipping up a BBQ Chicken Pizza with Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust?

Or maybe something a little more unique to mix things up at dinnertime? I'm loving Pillsbury's idea of a Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza with Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust! The combination of the sweet pear, creamy cheese and baby spinach is making my mouth water!

If fruit on pizza isn't your thing, then how about mixing in a different side dish and trying Pillsbury's Potato Pesto Pizza with Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust? Small red potatoes, mozzarella, garlic and pesto sure sound like they would create a pizza that is packed with flavor to me!

Potato Pesto Pizza

There were so many of Pillsbury's Artisan Pizza Recipes that sounded tasty to me that, upon the arrival of an Artisan Fresh Ingredients Prize Pack, I wasn't sure which one my family would try first!

Pillsbury prize pack

After finding a package of Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust in the refrigerated section of our local grocery store, the kids and I got started following Pillsbury's recipe for Chicken Pesto Pizza... without the chicken for the vegetarians in the household.

homemade pizza

Chicken(less) Pesto Pizza

Ingredients

1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated artisan pizza crust with whole grain
½ cup refrigerated basil pesto (from 7-oz container)
2 cups shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese or Italian cheese blend (8 oz)
1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast
2 large plum (Roma) tomatoes, thinly sliced
Fresh basil leaves, if desired

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F for dark or nonstick pan (425°F for all other pans). Spray 15x10" pan with sides with cooking spray.

Unroll dough in pan; starting at center, press dough into 15x10" rectangle. Bake about 8 minutes or until light brown.

Pillsbury pizza dough

Spread pesto to within ½ inch of edges of crust. Top with 1½ cups of the cheese, the chicken and tomatoes; sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese.

Bake 5 minutes longer or until edges of crust are golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with basil. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 3 rows.

Basil pesto pizza recipe

This was so incredibly easy and the results were so incredibly tasty! I love the way that each of the topping ingredients work well with each other, while the soft and chewy crust pulled it all together!

After the positive reaction that this dish received from the whole family, I have no doubt that we'll be having this again - not to mention that slicing it into small rectangles made me think that it would be a great appetizer or dish for a future gathering or party. Yum!

Basil pesto pizza

Whether you like tomatoes or spinach, sausage, fresh peppers or onions, let a package of Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust turn your favorite ingredients into a hearty, tasty, filling, whole grain-filled meal that the whole family is sure to enjoy.

I love this giveaway, and use Pilsbury on occasions because my husband uses it when he cooks. However, like your friend, I make homemade pizza crust at least every two weeks, often once a week. It takes about a minute to whip up, let it sit 10-30 minutes for the gluten to rest, then pat out..it really is a quick easy way to make pizza and tastes as good as restaurant at a much lower cost. Pilsburry is very tasty though, and much easier than my easy crust :)

It would depend on my mood. If I was feeling traditional, it'd be pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, red pepper, and lots of cheese.

Otherwise, I might have a seafood pizza, where I add horseradish to the tomato sauce, and top with shredded white cheddar, onions, red pepper, shrimp, scallops, and imitation crab and lobster.
