Great Cheese Makes Great Pizza

Great Cheese Makes Great Pizza

February 9 is National Pizza Day! We love pizza in all forms, but an easy peasy pizza is always a great pizza.

We had fun using a rectangle pizza shell from Trader Joe’s to create pizza bites that would be great for game day snacks, after school pick me up, or a quick dinner.

We used our creamy fresh Olive Garlic Fromage Blanc as the base layer, added pepperoni in a grid, and topped each with a small pile of shredded Monterey Jack.

Pop it onto a pizza stone (or in our case, the back of a rimmed stoneware sheetpan) that has preheated in a 450° oven and we had a perfect, crunchy, melty, cheesy pizza in 9 minutes. We let it sit for a few minutes and cut it into a grid using the pepperoni as a guide.

This round didn’t even make it to a serving tray so we’d say it's a hit! You can find ready-to-bake pizza shells in all kinds of formats, and any of our cheese flavors would be great on this so have fun experimenting. 

All four of our Fromage Blanc flavors are on sale for 15% off in February. Stock up in our online store, and put some Monterey Jack in your cart while you’re there!
