I was craving something carby for dinner (me? crave carbs? never (; ), so I decided to try the Glutino Chicken Pizza with BBQ Sauce I bought the other day at my Whole Foods trip. I really liked the Duo Cheese and Spinach & Feta pizzas that Glutino made, so I thought this one would be good too.  I set the oven to 375 degrees and let it cook while I steamed up some broccoli on the side.

Here’s how it looked frozen- there wasn’t a ton of cheese, and the crust was thin.

The pieces of chicken looked small, so I was a bit skeptical at first.
However, I found that they were just hidden underneath the cheese!

And here’s how it looked out of the oven

1 word. YUM.

I took a bite, and instantly fell in love. I honestly didn’t think I was going to like this as much as I did. It was AMAZING! The crust was crunchy yet soft, and there was a good amount of BBQ sauce on the pizza. The BBQ sauce itself had a tomato based flavor, and was sweet at first, but certainly left a bit of spice lingering. There was a good amount of cheese, which I liked because I personally am the type of person who would pull off the cheese on a slice of pizza (haha don’t hate me!!). The chicken was in small chunks, which were juicy, flavorful and chewy, but in a good way.

Honestly, this pizza rocked. I am SO buying it again, even if that means driving all the way to Whole Foods to get one (or 3…). Everything worked together, and tasted wonderfully together. I felt like I was eating something that tasted like it was from a restaurant, and I liked that the nutritional information was pretty good as well! This one deserves it – a 5 star rating!

What’s your favorite kind of pizza besides traditional cheese and sauce? I think this one is MY new favorite!

Glutino Gluten Free Spinach & Feta Pizza

Author: Healthnuttxo

First off, HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY! I am, indeed wearing Green as I type this.

Moving on to some more green , the Glutino Gluten Free Spinach & Feta Pizza! I tried the Duo Cheese Pizza and thought it was rather tasty, so I decided to buy the Spinach & Feta version.

First off, I thought it was funny how it came out of the box. Look how off centered the topping was!

Anyway, I cooked it in the oven and smeared the topping a bit more evenly on the pizza and paired it with some steamed broccoli. I felt all the green was appropriate for St. Patty’s Day.

Accidental butter on the crust. Oops.

First I looked at the pizza, and saw it was a bit greasy. However, not the best decision to blot the pizza, as some of the cheese stuck to my napkin, so I left it as is (oops!).

At first bite, I thought it was kind of bland. But as I continued to eat it, I actually really enjoyed it. The spinach and the cheese were very rich, and really quite salty. The cheese was stringy and with the spinach had a very parmesean and mozzarella cheese-like flavor. The edges of the pizza were very crunchy and crisped up fast. As for the flavor of the crust, it was okay. It was kind of like a plain breadstick.

Overall, a very different pizza than what I’m used to. I almost missed the tomato sauce flavor! However, it certainly was tasty, and a bit salty too. There was 840mg of sodium in one pizza, which I thought was a tad high. Yet, I would get it again. 4 stars
