Best Frozen Pizza

Best Frozen Pizza

If you’re looking for the best frozen pizza in the world then you will have to think outside of the box. Don’t get me wrong, the best frozen pizza still comes in a box, but I mean something else. By thinking outside of the box, I mean a pizza that is made with something other than wheat flour for crust. Milton’s frozen, thin&crispy, cauliflower crust pizza rivals some of the best non-frozen pizzas I’ve ever had. Before you scoff at the idea of a cauliflower crust like I did, you will have to give it a try. Trust me, I am no big cauliflower fan. I can take cauliflower or leave it as a vegetable, but it makes a darn, nice, tasty and crispy pizza crust. In fact, it doesn’t taste the least bit like cauliflower. Milton’s frozen pizza crust tastes like something that came out of one of those big, hot, New York pizza ovens. The ingredients are fresh-tasting and it is 100% gluten-free. It comes in two flavors:

Best Frozen Pizza

Margherita Four Cheese

This is the flavor that I get from my local Costco store. It is topped with mozzarella, provolone, Romano, and Parmesan cheeses, plus tomatoes and basil. What I usually do is add my own pepperoni, sausage, or other meat topping.

Second Best

Roasted Vegetable

I have not tried this one, but it sounds close to being equally delicious. The toppings are roasted zucchini, red & yellow bell peppers, onions, and a blend of 3 cheeses; mozzarella, Romano, and Parmesan. My personal hunch is that I’d rather stick with the Margherita. I don’t mind sauteing my own bell peppers and toppings.

Is Milton’s Pizza Paleo-Friendly?

If you’re on a strict, paleo diet than the answer is no. If you look at the full list of ingredients, you will see that Milton’s crust includes rice flour, rice starch, and brown rice; all which are grains. However, if you’re only concern is to avoid gluten and wheat flour, then you’ve gotta give Milton’s frozen pizza a try.

Best Cocktail Shaker

best cocktail shakerThe best cocktail shaker should be able to make your martini ice cold without giving your hands and fingers a case of frostbite.  The typical martini shaker is stainless steel. Stainless steel is a great temperature conductor and is perfectly suited for making your drink super cold very quickly. The problem, however, is that you can only shake so long before you fingers and hands are so ice cold that you can no longer hold on to the shaker. There is something to be said about stainless steel cocktail shakers. They give you the classic look, sound, and feel of a 1940’s bar where the sound of Martinis, Manhattans, Rob Roys and Cosmopolitans being shaken all around you make you feel important and sophisticated – and well, happy too. Is there any other way to make a classic cocktail? I’m here to tell you there is.

Cassava Chips by Siete

If Cassava Chips by Siete weren’t so expensive, I’d be eating a bag of them a day. These chips really are remarkable because they have just the right amount of salt and a very light and thin texture that makes them very hard to stop eating. I’ve always loved snacks, but have discovered in the last couple of years that the artificial oils and modified corn in these products is a common trigger for migraine headaches. While I’m not on a strict paleo diet, I now force myself to keep away from snacks that cause headaches and other, undesirable, unhealthy side effects. Cassava Chips are made from three ingredients: Cassava, avocado oil, and sea salt.  Like the Siete Almond Tortillas I reviewed several months ago, Cassava chips give you a healthy alternative to grain-based foods and snacks.  What is Cassava and how are the chips made?

Plantain Chips

Plantain ChipsPlantain chips are a perfect snack for those who are on a Paleo-diet or at least trying their best to stay away from less, “healthy” snacks. If you need something to crunch on, the Artisan Tropic Plantain strips are perfectly roasted and have a very satisfying texture and crunch. They are neither hard, nor soft; neither salty, nor sweet, yet they give you just the right amount of both snack characteristics. Some might prefer them a bit sweeter; others might want them saltier so fortunately, they provide them in either flavor; naturally sweet or with sea salt.

What are Plantains?

Plantains are a member of the banana family. In fact, they look like a big, green, yellow, or black banana on the outside.  I’ve been told that the green plantains are the best for making chips, so i would assume that the Artisan Tropic brand of Plantain strips are in fact made from the green ones. The green ones are also the sweetest, though still not as sweet as a banana. When I crave a salty snack, I don’t want it to be too sweet, so in a way, making chips from plantains makes a heckuva lot of sense.

Dare Maple Creme cookies. A 10.6 oz box of these maple creme delights includes about 18 cookies.

Dare Maple CremeI was skeptical when my wife first brought home a box of these. I had not heard of the brand, Dare Foods before. The box advertises that that these cookies are made from real maple.

These maple cream cookies really do taste fresh, from the cookie dough to the maple cream filling that is inside. I will not lie and try to tell you these are paleo friendly or make a healthy snack. The first ingredient is wheat and they are made with hydrogenated coconut oils, vegetable oils and high fructose corn syrup.
