Every once in a while, mommies (& daddies) want a break from cooking. Well, Friday afternoon we had parent-teacher conferences for our oldest two children. Afterward, my husband and I both wanted another option for dinner. Marco’s “Ah!thentic Italian Pizza” was top on our list.
Marco’s Pizza is a combination of Italian and Mediterranean flavors! I was given passes to try their new Grilled Chicken Florentine Pizza and this was the perfect day for it. It’s made with tender grilled chicken, parmesan garlic sauce, four cheeses, fresh spinach and sliced tomatoes, with chopped red onions on dough made daily.
Marco’s introduced this pizza on March 24th, right in time to celebrate National Spinach Day. They’re now adding fresh Spinach Pizza to their menu in addition to new chicken pizza specialities. Mushrooms and Spinach are my favorite toppings on a pizza, so I was delighted to learn I could try a Spinach & Cheese too! As you see in the picture, I added Mushrooms to mine. I couldn’t help it. What’s with all this Spinach you ask? Well, March 26 was National Spinach Day! I didn’t know Spinach was actually celebrated but you learn something new everyday. I eat spinach on pizza every chance I get, in my salads and blended in my smoothies!
Benefits of Spinach:
- Good Source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids:
- Loaded with Vitamins: A, K, D & E
- Anti-Cancer and Anti-Inflammatory Antioxidants
- Strengthens the Bones:
- Nourishes the Eyes
When the pizza came to our table, we were all ready to grab and devour! It smelled so good. We opened the boxes and whalaaa – two totally different pizzas with two different taste. The Grilled Chicken Florentine Pizza was very good. My husband and children immediately chose that pizza to eat first!
That’s fine, because that left the Spinach and Mushroom pizza made with a three cheese blend of fresh never frozen cheese on fresh never-frozen dough made daily all too myself. Until, they were ready to give it try of course.Marco’s Pizza founder Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco moved to the U.S. from Italy when he was nine years old and grew up working in his family’s pizzeria. The first Marco’s Pizza store opened in Toledo in 1978. Today, there are more than 470 franchised and company-managed Marco’s Pizza stores.More than 1500 new Marco’s locations are on their way, which means the company will quadruple its store count in the next few years.
