Here’s another entry in this rad blog that I invite you to file under “Things You See at Kroger.” This box of Strawberry Frosted Shredded Wheat Cereal caught my eye when I was grocery shopping with my sister while visiting California at Christmas. Because the search for Pink Things observes no Holiday!

You may recall Previously Reading about Better 4U Pizzas here on The Gig, because they are a super delicious, guilt-free way to enjoy pizza conveniently at home. Happily, our friends at Better 4U are keeping us in the loop with all of their new products, as we recently received a shipment of their latest pizza creations with a thin and crispy Sprouted Grain crust!

Like all Better 4U Pizzas, the new Sprouted Grain Pizzas are made entirely with All Natural Ingredients, and that includes everything that goes into making the crust and the sauce, plus all of the delicious toppings. The sprouted grain crusts do contain wheat, however, so they are not ideal for those on a Gluten-free diet.

Bruschetta Style Pizza Box

Better 4U Sprouted Grain Pizzas come in three mouth-watering varietes:

Bruschetta Style: Topped with Mozzarella, Feta Cheese, Tomatoes, Garlic, Olive Oil and Basil

Old World Veggie: Topped with Mozzarella, Feta Cheese, Tomatoes, Spinach, Onion, Garlic, Diced Red Peppers and Oregano

and

Mediterranean: Topped with Spinach, Artichokes, Red Onions, Red Pepper, Kalamata Olives, Oregano and Feta

Bruschetta Style Pizza Cooked

Here is the Brushetta Style pizza coming out of a hot oven. It is normal for the crust to be brown like that, so don’t worry that the dark color indicates overdoneness. As expected, the crust is light and crispy but supports the toppings well. With a salad, this is a pefect light summer dinner for two.

Better 4U’s Sprouted Grain crust is a delightful departure from traditional crust – or even their excellent Gluten Free crust offerings – in that it has a distinctive whole grain taste with a delicious nuttiness that I’d compare to 7 Grain toast. Very delicious!

I wanted you to get a good idea of how thin the crust is, thus, this pre-cooked “elevation” photo!

I happened to have a few leftover slices of Pepperoni, so I just threw them on the pizza before popping it into the oven – no harm no foul! Look how yummy and caramelized the onions get and yet the spinach maintains its bright green color, because the pizza cooks so fast. You can almost, as they say, “Taste it with your eyes.”

Better 4U Pizza Nutrition Facts

Indulging in these delcious pizzas is not going to lay waste to your diet plan either. One serving (half a pizza) is just 220 calories for the Old World Veggie and Mediterranean styles, and 230 calories per serving for the thin crust Bruschetta Style variety.
