Family Pizza Night (Product Review)

Recently I partnered with the Hormel Pizza Ready Blogger program. They provided complimentary product in exchange for my review. All opinions, as usual, are my own!

Last Friday night was make your own pizza night around our house. We tried out Hormel's new line of ready make sauces and pizza flatbreads called Hormel Pizza Ready. For once, everyone got to make the pizza that they wanted, instead of just dealing with the majority choice. Nice, huh?

Superman showed up to be the primary cheese applicator. I took care of the messier job of spreading the sauce. There are some things I don't think it's necessary to be a "yes mom" about, and red sauce is one of them.

My little guy loves helping with supper, so of course he was all over this.

The kids and I had mini pepperoni. We split two of the rustic white flatbreads between the three of us and let Mr. G have his own. He decided on supreme. He and I were really impressed with the taste of the tomato sauce, and of course, Hormel always has great pizza meat toppings. The kids just cleaned their plates, which speaks for itself.

I calculated the Weight Watcher points on these, because that's always how I measure what I'm eating, whether I'm following the plan or not. The Pizza Ready mini pepperoni was 3 points per serving (about 1.5 servings filled the entire flatbread), and the flatbread was 4 for the entire piece. Once I added mozzarella cheese, the entire flatbread was around 12 points. That's a fairly generous amount of pizza, and paired with a salad, it made a great Friday night supper.

You place the flatbreads on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 for about 5 minutes, then remove them and add your choice of toppings before baking again to melt the cheese to golden brown. We have enough supplies to make a few more, so I'll get creative and add fresh veggies next time.

My husband, the camping loving Eagle Scout, pointed out that this would be awesome for camping out. I never would've thought of that, but he's right, and the flatbread package even shows grilling instructions on the back.

We're looking forward with great anticipation to an awesome football season ahead, and with that comes lots of football watching parties. Using these products as a base to build your own pizza during football watching would be a creative way to have pizza to please everyone we have over.

(That's a spoiler alert to my friends. You will be seeing this at a future Aggie football watching party.)
