Pepperoni Pizza Twist {$150 Visa Card Giveaway}

pizza twist

March is the 30th annual National Frozen Foods month! In the spirit of frozen foods, I went ahead and caved a few weeks ago and bought a little deep freezer. We had several when I was a kid, and I wasn’t going to get one for my own home, but I am so happy I did. I can’t tell you how much easier it makes my life. I can store the other half of the buy one get one free sale loafs of breads, extra meats I buy at Cosco, and so many other things. It’s so nice having a large spacious freezer where everything is neatly organized too.

I can also stock up on out of season frozen fruits and vegetables to make stir fries, smoothies and even sorbets. The freezer section is where you will find the best price on those out of season goodies that you crave. I also buy fish sticks, chicken nuggets and fries for my son for snacks. They make great after school snacks to accompany fresh fruit and cut up veggies.

But there’s so much more in the freezer isle. Did you know that the freezer aisle comprises 3,700+ different, delicious foods ranging from nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables to decadent ice creams and novelties?

  • Captured at the height of ripeness
  • Prepared and seasoned by expert chefs
  • Designed to meet a wide variety of tastes and menu needs
  • Convenient and no waste (i.e., perfect portions)
  • Are a variety of different cuisines represented in the freezer aisle, including options that cover snack-time, breakfast, lunch, dinner, entertaining and specialty food occasions
  • Asian and Hispanic cuisine is increasingly popular across the country, and you can find a wide variety of these flavors in the freezer aisle
  • Frozen foods offer great value, from perfectly-portioned meals to ingredients and produce that leave nothing to waste
  • Freezing is the best method for preserving food
  • It’s been a natural, trusted practice for centuries
  • Preserves foods at the peak of freshness, from the moment they’re harvested or procured

Here’s a infographic that I found very informative about frozen foods and their path from farm to table.

But back to dinner. I don’t know why I have waited so long to share this easy recipe with you. It’s one of our favorite quick and easy meals, and is perfect to make for company too when you have picky eaters coming over. It looks cute and it’s just simple peperoni pizza. If your making it just for your family, you can add any of your favorite pizza toppings and make this pizza twist all your own.

For this pizza twist, I just started with frozen Bridgford bread dough right from my grocer’s freezer.


Then I halved a piece of dough lengthwise, rolled it out and filled with pizza toppings.

After topping the dough with sauce, pepperoni and cheese, I pinched the dough together around the toppings and twisted the dough together. Then I brushed with a whisked egg and topped with grated Parmesan cheese.

Then after baking, you get a large, soft pizza foll, perfect for your family’s dinner. I served this roll with a fresh Caesar salad.

    I like making a veggie soup using frozen veggies, such as peas, carrots and corn.

  4. MaryB — March 19, 2013 @ 7:30 pm

    My favorite frozen food to make quick and easy meals is either frozen bread dough or puff pastry. Either makes a great base for a tasty meal. Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  5. Elyse — March 19, 2013 @ 8:31 pm

    Frozen peas to make speedy soup- cook in a little stock add some pesto and blend till smooth! Delicious!

  6. Stacey B — March 19, 2013 @ 9:08 pm

    You can do a lot with frozen grilled chicken

  7. Paula - bell'alimento — March 19, 2013 @ 10:18 pm

    I always keep a bag of frozen peas in my freezer! They cook up in a flash and go with almost everything.

  8. Cassie | Bake Your Day — March 19, 2013 @ 10:35 pm

    Fun recipe, Angie! Great for kids, too.

  9. Julie H. — March 20, 2013 @ 12:22 am

    I like to make a triple batch of pizza dough and roll out individual-sized pizza crusts to keep in the freezer. (No one around here wants the same stuff on their pizza!)

  10. Leah B — March 20, 2013 @ 9:45 am

    Frozen Veggies are our go to – for stir fry or just with dinner.

  11. Ali | Gimme Some Oven — March 20, 2013 @ 9:57 am

    This looks so delicious! Cheers to all ways to enjoy pepperoni pizza!

  12. Super fun, my family would love this twist on pizza!

  13. rachel — March 20, 2013 @ 1:09 pm

    Frozen veggies, like corn — so easy to throw into soup and the crockpot!

  14. Rachel @ Baked by Rachel — March 20, 2013 @ 1:57 pm

    Such a fun way to serve up pizza! My kids would love this.

  15. Veronica — March 20, 2013 @ 3:01 pm

    I love to use frozen blueberries for homemade blueberry muffins! The blueberries stay in tact much better instead of a giant mess! Yum.

  16. Veronica — March 20, 2013 @ 3:03 pm

    Whoops I misread the instructions! I like to use frozen veggies (instead of canned) for stews; better for you and less preservatives and such. Especially since cans are getting a bad rap these days. The stew would have beef, peas, potatoes, carrots, peppers, onions, garlic, parsley. My mouth is watering at the thought!

  17. Marissa Kubinski — March 20, 2013 @ 3:05 pm

    I always keep a bag of frozen veggies in the freezer. I can use them for soups or side dish to a meat.

  18. This recipe looks great. I want it now!! 🙂

    I rarely ever use frozen products, but one quick and easy meal (not so nutritious) is waffle fries topped with rotisserie chicken, shredded cheddar and jalapenos. We usually pour homemade salsa on top. Yummmms. 🙂

  19. Nancy Bowers — March 20, 2013 @ 10:25 pm

    I like many frozen vegetables but use frozen peas the most in chicken pot pit and other meals.

  20. Michelle — March 20, 2013 @ 11:25 pm

    I love having chopped onions & peppers in the freezer. Thy are so handy, and you don’t always feel like cutting vegetables or a meal.

  21. Tara @ Unsophisticook — March 20, 2013 @ 11:31 pm

    I’m sure my kids will be thanking you when I make this. Pizza rolls are one thing they can all agree on, and this is similar!

  22. tina m — March 21, 2013 @ 8:49 am

    I like Frozen veggies

  23. Mb — March 21, 2013 @ 12:36 pm

    frozen veggie burgers! good plain, cut up on salads, with veggies, on a bun…

  24. Heather — March 21, 2013 @ 1:02 pm

    I like to cook up frozen fish fillets when I need to eat something quick.

  25. Belinda @zomppa — March 21, 2013 @ 1:52 pm

    Frozen fruit and veggies are a good way to go, especially in winter months when local produce is bit harder to get.

  26. Liz King — March 21, 2013 @ 1:55 pm

    Birds Eye Steamfresh Frozen Whole Grain Brown Rice

  27. Julia — March 21, 2013 @ 2:11 pm

    Now these look delicious!! Great recipe for kids.

  28. Mary E. — March 21, 2013 @ 4:19 pm

    I only shop once a month, so keep several bags of frozen veg in my freezer for when the fresh produce is used up. And several quarts of homemade chicken and/or veggie stock, always! 🙂

  29. Holly — March 21, 2013 @ 7:17 pm

    I like to keep a bag of turkey meatballs in the freezer for a fast meal. While the sauce is simmering, I put the frozen meatballs in so they can thaw and heat up.

  30. Shelly — March 21, 2013 @ 7:37 pm

    I always have frozen veggies on hand.

  31. J — March 21, 2013 @ 11:04 pm

    Frozen chicken broth cubes, with herbs or onions in them. Makes for a quick, easy soup base, and adds a little zing to other recipes too 🙂

  32. Dani H — March 22, 2013 @ 8:25 am

    I keep frozen stir-fry vegetables on hand all the time ~ they’re not only great in a chicken teriyaki stir-fry, they’re great sauteed toward the end when you are pan frying fish, pork, beef or chicken. With or without rice, I love them.

    Thanks for a chance at the giveaway!

  33. Meryl — March 22, 2013 @ 4:50 pm

    I like to use frozen peas in salads, rice dishes, etc.

  34. Louis — March 22, 2013 @ 4:51 pm

    I use frozen spinach for vegetarian lasagne.

  35. Barbara Montag — March 22, 2013 @ 8:06 pm

    I’m going to try this – oh yum!
    I add frozen spinach to my soups and on top of pasta.
    And I prefer frozen veggies over canned.

  36. Jeffrey — March 23, 2013 @ 4:08 pm

    I make my own dough, freeze it and on those busy days full of sporting events we can use it for pizza, calzones or garlic bread.

  37. Kate D. — March 23, 2013 @ 5:13 pm

    My favorite frozen food ingredient to make a quick and easy family dinner is frozen veggies that I toss into soup, stir fry or casseroles.

    My favorite frozen food to cook with is veggies. I eat that a lot.

    I keep frozen bread and/or roll dough in the freezer most of the time. Use the roll dough frequently to make up a pan of Christmas Morning Rolls at night to bake in the morning for a weekend treat.

  42. Carolyn Hubatka — March 25, 2013 @ 5:16 pm

    I always have frozen vegs and fruit for a fast meal.

  43. Kamaya T — March 25, 2013 @ 8:35 pm

    My favorite frozen foods would have to be veggies and chicken breast. I love to make chicken and vegetables quesadilla’s.

    Frozen Veggies, Great For Casseroles And Soups 🙂

  48. Robin Wilson — March 27, 2013 @ 9:42 pm

    We keep frozen chicken tenderloins on hand to make pounded, breaded, pan fried “patties”. They cook up fast and we add parm cheese, Italian spices, pepper flakes whatever the mood strikes to the breading to change things up.

  49. Kimberly Johnson — March 28, 2013 @ 12:48 am

    I live alone with my best friend Spencer my black lab. He likes it when I buy a veriety of good frozen dinners. He especially loves the ones with chicken.We share, he gets a bite then I get a bite. Thank you for the exciting givaway, Kim J
