Sometimes, two awesome things get even better when you put them together. Need proof? How about: Brad and Angie, book clubs and pinot, good hair days and selfies. And, maybe the most universally loved pairing of all time: pepperoni and pizza. According to the Internet, 36% of pizza orders in the US are for pepperoni pizza. Even people who are not typically pepperoni eaters love it on their pizza.
Allow me to get passionate a moment: pepperoni pxizza is the great love of my life. There are many occasions that call for immediate consumption of pepperoni pizza: celebrations, emotional eating, whenever I’m hungry…and, often, I am frankly not willing (or able) to wait on delivery to bring me a pie. That is why I make sure I always have the ingredients at hand for the world’s most delicious flatbread pizza.
Flatbread pizza is better than delivery, and I am happy to enlighten you on why. Putting aside the logistical hassles of ordering, paying and waiting, Flatbread pepperoni pizza is even more delicious, a lot healthier, and when you eat it all you can make more without having to face that delivery guy again (they can be so judgmental).
Let me take a moment to get a little more specific about my Flatout Flatbread Pepperoni Pizza and why it is the best thing you will ever eat. Starting with pepperoni and its forever soul mate, cheese. The combination of spicy, meaty pepperoni and creamy, gooey cheese is undeniably one of the taste bud’s greatest pleasures. But, while your mouth may enjoy a spoonful of mozzarella and pepperoni, complete satisfaction requires a texture equilibrium that is only achieved by adding something crunchy, and Flatout Flatbread Artisan Thin Pizza Crust is the perfect crispy canvas for the world’s most perfect flatbread pizza. It holds up – this is pizza you can eat with your hands without concern for sogginess or a floppy, sagging middle. Prefer a little bit of chewy goodness in your crust? These tasty delights are just as delectable when prepared on the grill. And, If you are one of those self-control types who has leftovers, you’ll be surprised how good this pizza tastes cold. Finally, there’s the fact that these pizzas take just moments to bake. Moments that I find are best spent nibbling on extra slices of cheese and pepperoni.
