Imported from Italy
Pizza may not have originated in Italy (Greece is the most likely source, though history is still unclear), but the Italians most assuredly get credit for elevating a mere flatbread to an art form. Trader Giotto's Arugula Pizza, the newest in our array of imported Italian pizzas, further elevates this humble pie.
Our Arugula Pizza features a hand-stretched, wood-fired crust, topped with five ferociously flavorful formaggios: mozzarella, grana padano, manchego, provolone and pecorino. Cherry tomatoes and arugula are placed atop the cheeses, making a colorful statement that, when paired with the white of the cheeses, begins to resemble the color scheme of the Italian flag? Coincidence? Hmmmm…
Because the pizza is flash frozen immediately, both the arugula and the tomatoes look and taste fresh when you bake it at home—which takes less than 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven, by the way. We like to rev up the fresh flavors even more by drizzling some of our Fat Free Balsamic Vinaigrette atop the freshly baked pie. Trust us; it’ll make your taste buds tingle. Serve Trader Giotto’s Arugula Pizza with a salad for dinner, or cut it into smaller slices and serve as a memorable appetizer course. Memorable, too, is our price of $4.29 for each 15.3 ounce Pizza. You’ll find it in our freezer case.
