Written by Summer…..
We’re footfall fans! My husband and I both love to watch it and we do so as a family with our two young sons every weekend. My husband also plays on a flag football league during the fall and spring. So I guess we actually live football in the fall.
The games start on Saturday with college ball. Our alma maters are UCLA and Nebraska (UNL). DVRs have changed our watching strategy and we can watch live games and record what we need for later viewing.
To marry my husband I also had to promise to also love, honor and cherish da Chicago Bears. I’ve learned to be pessimistically hopeful every season. The only thing in the NFL that’s better than Thursday night football is all day Sunday football and better than that is the “extra game” on Monday (like a shot to cure the hangover) and the only thing better than that is THE SUPER BOWL!
When we’re busy all weekend we find ourselves munching on quick foods. This past Sunday we made an easy and quick at home meal with Boboli’s Special Edition Football Shaped Pizza Crust topped with sauce and mozzarella. Our family enjoys Boboli; this is not the first time we’ve eaten it though this is the first time I’ve had a shape besides the typical circle.
If you’ve never had Boboli, their crust is bready, but not too much so. It’s actually the perfect compromise for my husband and I; I like regular crust and he likes deep dish. Boboli seems to have the perfect sustenance that each of us likes to bite into.
When I plan our meals I do like easy and quick; Boboli has both of those covered, but what about nutrition? Here is the 411 on Boboli nutritional information.
Not too shabby though I’d prefer a whole wheat option (which they do offer in their normal circle crusts) with no artificial colors and natural preservatives (which they may or may not use, it’s not specified). On the upside their crust has very few ingredients for a processed carbohydrate. You can’t go wrong with the nutrition of pizza as you can get your family to eat some of those “dreaded” fruits and vegetables. My youngest son and I love to eat pineapple (fruit), ham (protein), and artichoke (vegetable) with tomato sauce (vegetable) and mozzarella (dairy) on top of crust (grain).
But what would you do with a football shaped Boboli? PARTY TIME! Just in time for the bowl games and the end of local leagues. The host can provide the cheese and sauce and have every attending family bring enough Boboli Special Edition Football Shaped Pizza Crusts for their family and one topping with enough to share. Then simply set out all ingredients and allow everyone to create their own perfect pizza! Cook pizzas using both the oven and grill for maximum cooking capability. No more guessing what to order for your big game celebration! Boboli also offers Boboli Tips & Ideas as well as Boboli Recipes which you can include on your party evite to get people thinking about what they might bring.
