Pizza. A word that makes The Boy’s heart sing 🎶 . Croissant Pizza. Not exactly what he was thinking of. But I have very different pizza dreams. In the 90’s Pepperidge Farms revolutionized the Pizza Game (in my mind) when they introduced their line of Croissant Pizzas. Flaky croissant dough, with a slightly sweet, tangy sauce, delicious toppings, MICROWAVED in minutes (this was Jetsons-level science here) in its patented micro-sleeve (woooo… more science!)! I mean… LOOK AT IT 👀 Wow.
Alas, one day (POOF) they disappeared from freezer shelves. There was no internet to speak of, so no way to find out why, and no eBay to use to track down that last box of perfection 😢
Well after years of lamenting the loss of this culinary wonder, and without the benefit of a time machine (as a child I was sure I’d have one by now) I decided I HAD to recreate it as best as I could. I went with really traditional toppings, like you’d find on a 90’s frozen pizza, but hey, classics are classics for a reason! But you can really do whatever you want! Have fun, try different sauces, different toppings, whatever you want! I mean, how good does salsa as a sauce, spicy ground beef, jalapeños, and monterey jack cheese sound?!
