Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain Review and Giveaway #MyBlogSpark


All of you busy moms are going to appreciate this one. Have you tried Pillsbury’s Artisan pizza crust with whole grain yet? If not, you are missing out.

Not only is this pizza crust easy to prepare, it bakes to perfection. Crisp, yet moist and flavorful. Mmmmm! Hubby and I were both impressed with the taste, texture, and flavor of this pizza crust.

So let’s start from the beginning. The dough comes in the standard Pillsbury refrigerated packaging.


After opening it up, the dough will roll out into a rectangle shape.

At this point, the dough is very thick. We like our pizza crust thin—so I rolled it out. You stick it in the oven to crisp for a few minutes before adding your toppings.

I picked out form fresh ingredients to top the pizza and stored them in the the handy food storage containers that General Mills sent with this package.

Put the toppings on, and bake!

Like I mentioned before, this pizza turned out absolutely wonderful.

The nutritional information isn’t too bad, as far as pizza crusts are concerned. Is this recipe full of clean and nutritious ingredients, no. But it’s a convenience food—not something I would use all of the time, but something I would use when I’m in a hurry or just need a break.

There are 190 calories for 1/6 of the crust, but I never cut my pizza into six slices, usually 8—so that would be about 143 calories per slice, before toppings. Plus, this dough was so easy to work with, that I was able to cover the 15.5” Farberware Pizza Crisper that General Mills sent me. We had plenty of leftovers!
