Before leaving for our trip to Florida, the kids and I were anxious to try the new Pillsbury® Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain. Normally, when we make pizza for supper, we make a homemade crust. But, sometimes we want a quicker option – especially when we’re hungry for pizza at lunchtime. We’ve used Pillsbury® crusts in the past (in fact, let it be known right here, right now that I have a crush on the Pillsbury Doughboy and have since childhood! And I’m not ashamed to admit it!)
We found the Artisan crust at our local grocery store and got one to try. I wanted to try something different from our traditional pizza, so I went with a Mexican pizza theme. I rolled the crust out on a cookie sheet (we actually prefer our homemade pizza in a rectangular shape, for some reason, and these crusts are perfect for that). I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add pizza sauce or not – I ended up adding a thin layer of sauce. I browned a pound of ground beef, and added a taco seasoning packet and a little can of chilis to it. I spread the meat layer over the sauce. We topped it with a cheese mixture (the Mexican variety with the spices would be yummy for this) and baked it ‘til it was nicely browned. I added taco sauce to mine.
It was actually enough for lunch one day and several leftovers. I think some people would enjoy it topped with more traditional taco toppings – like lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. My kids tend to lean toward being picky eaters, so we left that off.
OK, can I just say that I loved this pizza?! It was enough of a change from the traditional pizza and made some great lunches! I would highly recommend the Pillsbury® Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain and will be purchasing it again for our family’s use.
