As you know you are on a Paleo/Primal diet, but there is one night each month were we cheat a little and indulge...family pizza night! We are a family of 4 pizza lovers! When I was pregnant with my daughter pizza was my food craving and my husband and I ate pizza at least once a week! So of course my daughter loves pizza, it's what she ate the most of when she was in the womb. She is now 8 and can almost eat a medium all my herself! Her second birthday party was a pizza themed party complete with a giant cookie cake decorated like a pizza. See I told you we love pizza! After our son came along we decided to start our once a month pizza and movie night family tradition. It's the one night the kids are allowed to eat at the coffee table in the living room!
But finding the perfect pizza can be a challenge sometimes. I don't know about you, but I prefer authentic Italian pizza with lots of gooey cheese. fresh ingredients, hearty sauce and delicious crispy crust! Well after years of searching we found our perfect pizzeria, Marco's Pizza.
Marco's Pizza is headquartered in Toledo, Ohio and is the fastest-growing pizza company in the U.S (based on the number of stores signed into development since 2007). Marco's was founded in 1978 by Italian born, Pasquale Gimmarco. "Pat" thrives on making Italian Pizza with only fresh ingredients! The company has grown significantly over the years and now operates more than 425 stores in 32 states, and the Bahamas. They were even recently ranked 11th place in the "2012 Pizza Industry Top 100 Movers & Shakers" by PizzaMarketPlace.com.
Why do we love Marcos?
We love Marco's Pizza because of their fresh NEVER frozen ingredients and classic, authentic Italian taste. During our most recent family pizza night we tried out Marco's newest pizza (released March 24th) the Grille Chicken Florentine Pizza. This pizza combines authentic Italian and Mediterranean flavors, creating a whole new take on traditional pizza. We couldn't wait to dig in when we saw the pizza! The pizza has tender grilled chicken, parmesan garlic sauce, four gooey cheeses, fresh spinach, large sliced tomatoes, and chopped red onions all piled on top of fresh handmade dough! The pizza is so filling that you only need 1-2 slices! It was delizioso!
For our second pizza we went with a three cheese blend pizza topped with fresh spinach. Did you know Marco's Pizza is now offering fresh spinach as a topping on ANY pizza? We all loved this pizza too. It was simple, yet tasty and amazing.
Because the pizzas are so hearty and filling we actually had leftovers (which hardly ever happens). So the next day we had Marco's Pizza for lunch. It tasted great the second time around too, even cold!
I highly recommend Marco's Pizza for you next family pizza night.
