Annie's Mac & Cheese Rising Crust Pizza Review + Giveaways! #MacAndCheesePizza

As a busy mom, I know how we all need meals that are easy to prepare or don't require us to spend too much time in the kitchen on those hurried days.  Like most families, we buy and eat frozen foods on a semi-regular basis. Although we like to order pizza for take-out or delivery from our favorite local pizza shop, we also like the convenience of having frozen pizzas that we can just grab from the freezer anytime.  Just stick the pizza into the oven to bake, wait less than 20 minutes and voilà, we have a meal in an instant!

Recently, I have had the great opportunity to try the new Annie’s Rising Crust Macaroni & Cheese Pizza with my family. My kids already love Mac & Cheese and pizza, so a combo of these two sounded really tempting to me!  We have already tried the other flavors of Annie's Rising Crust Pizza (Pepperoni Pizza and Supreme Pizza) before and we loved them. The new Annie's Mac & Cheese Rising Crust Pizza was well loved not only by my kids, but also by me and my husband! 

Recently,  Annie’s put kids’ temptation to the test to see if the mac & cheese and pizza combo was worth waiting for.  The results were adorable! Check out this short video: 

My personal take

First, I love that Annie's products are made with whole grains and organic ingredients- which means, no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives are used in making them. Second, I am a bit iffy when it comes to artificial cheese flavors in packaged or processed foods. I just don't like the taste of artificial cheese in any food, period. So the fact that Annie’s Rising Crust Macaroni & Cheese Pizza has 100% real cheese in it gave me another reason to try this new product! And I am glad that my family got to try it. It's delicious, convenient and quick to prepare and we like that it has zero trans fat too! For me, healthier choices in food are better. This product is definitely something we'll buy again in the future!

Annie's pizza and other Annie's food products are available in most grocery stores with an organic food section or you can go here to locate a store near you that carries them.
