Austin's Pizza Review & Giveaway!

Hey guys, guess what? One of Austin’s best known pizzerias is now selling pies in a freezer aisle near you! I was thrilled when I was contacted to try their new frozen pizza line that just became available at H-E-B this past month! Austin's has been a local favorite since 1999 so it makes sense that they would branch out and start selling their pies in stores across Austin, San Antonio, Houston and San Marcos.

The new pizza line includes innovative flavors all named after well-known Austin streets and places such as:

-Pepperoni (not a street name but that would be awesome!)
-Brazos (Canadian bacon, pepperoni, onions, green peppers, jalapenos and feta cheese)
-Downtown Special (pepperoni, sausage, black olives and mushrooms)
-MoPac (Canadian bacon, pepperoni, sausage, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and olives)

And just because it's frozen doesn't mean they compromised on quality, each 12-inch pizza is made with real ingredients and 100 whole milk mozzarella with a classic tomato sauce.

Frozen pizza is a favorite go-to dinner at our house, it's so easy to whip up and serve with a simple side salad and I feel like we're still getting a nutritionally rounded meal. So what do I look for in an ideal frozen pie? I couple of my must haves are: a flavorful tomato sauce, a thin crispy crust, and of course, it has to have quality toppings aplenty. So did Austin's live up to the hype?! I will say I was really impressed with the amount of toppings on the pizza, usually with frozen brands, it looks like one thing on the box and then you open it up and there's like 5 pepperonis and a sprinkle of cheese on there. I tried the "MoPac" and it was overflowing with veggies and meat. The crust was nice and it didn't become soggy as you ate it which is optimal for a prime pizza eating experience. My only complaint was that I wish it had more tomato sauce on it - next time I will try the simple pepperoni.
