With the end of the school year in site and the warmer weather finally arriving, my family is turning to easy dinner options that we love and that allow us to quickly put together a meal that the entire family enjoys while saving time. For as long as I cam remember, pizza night has been a weekly event in my home – after all, I live with three guys who love their pizza. While I’ve always tried to keep pizza night easy, I’ve recently discovered that planning an easy family pizza night is a breeze with a little help from Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizza, a simple corn and avocado salad and 30 short minutes. Pull up a chair and let’s talk about everything you need to know to plan and execute a perfect at-home family pizza night this spring and summer without breaking a sweat!
Before we get to my tried, tested and true easy family pizza night ideas, let me share with you a little more about our end of school routine. Right now it seems like one of the boys have sports every night. I’m pretty much running around like a the crazed mama that I am trying to make sure that everyone is where they need to be and that dinner is still on the table. Add to that the fact that my kids think if the sun is shining they need to be outdoors and it can present quite a few challenges for me. As a family, we don’t want to sit in a restaurant. We don’t want to wait for delivery. We want family pizza night to fit in with our busy schedule while still being simple and delicious. That’s where Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizza from Publix comes in.

Whew! Now that you’ve stocked up on Freschetta Pizzas at Publix AND found out how to save on your purchase, let me share with you my best mom tips, tricks, hacks and even a simple pairing that makes family pizza night the easiest and most delicious night of the week. Since you can obviously tell that Freschetta Pizza is the most important part of family pizza night, let’s start there. I’ve already shared that I choose frozen pizza for our family pizza night because it’s quick, easy and I can make it at home but let’s just be real, I’m picky when it comes to the frozen pizza I serve my family. Since quality and tastes truly matters to me, I reach for Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizza from Publix. This fluffy and delicious pizza is made with no chemical leaveners which means that the dough rises from real yeast, delivering a signature crust that rises perfectly in the oven and cooks up to be crispy on the outside and tender on the inside (pizza perfection I tell ya!). It smells seriously amazing while it’s cooking and it always comes out of the oven perfect and ready to be cut and enjoyed.
Plus, since there are a variety of Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizza options like the hubs and my favorite Supreme and the kid’s favorite Four Cheese, I can give everyone in my family the pizza they want while offering up a perfectly cooked Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizza that’s made with 100% real cheeses (like mozzarella, Parmesan, provolone and cheddar), whole vine-ripened tomatoes in Freschetta sauce and premium toppings that are made from the finest ingredients available. Now, if that doesn’t have you drooling already, let me show you how Freschetta pizza that not only tastes better but IS better due to the fact that it’s scratch made with all those yummy toppings helps make our family pizza night simple. You already know that Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizzas are the highest quality but what if I told you they are also easy to turn into a whole meal in just 30 short minutes (or less)? Seriously, ya’ll, this is life changing. All I have to do is pop my Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizzas into the oven (I always cook at least two!) and let them cook while I whip up a quick and easy Corn and Avocado salad to complete my meal.
- 3 ripe avocados
- 2 cups of corn (cooked)
- ⅔ cups of diced red onions
- ⅔ cups of diced peppers
- ½ cup of diced cilantro
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of lime juice
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Cube the avocados and add them to a bowl with the cooked corn.
- Mix in the red onions, diced peppers and cilantro.
- Pour the olive oil, lemon juice and lime juice over the top and combine well.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Serve with pizza.
This easy corn and avocado salad is the perfect side for Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizzas because it’s cool and fresh and just compliments the quality Freschetta ingredients so well! To make it I simply diced up my avocado, red onion, peppers and cilantro and cooked my corn.
Then I added all my ingredients a bowl, poured my olive oil, lemon juice and lime juice over the top and stirred it all together. After seasoning with salt and pepper, I had a perfect side to serve up with my Freschetta Pizzas to complete my family pizza night.
Now that all the food is taken care of for family pizza night (wasn’t that easy?) all that’s left to do is serve up an evening of fun and delicious food for my family. Remember how I told you we love being outside this time of year? Well, pizza night can totally be outside! I love to simply clean off my outdoor bar area, grab a few pizza stands and throw together an easy family pizza night that’s really impressive.
Then all that’s left to do is call the whole family (even grandma!) to the porch for a quick and easy dinner that’s great for weeknights, fun on weekends and always a guaranteed hit!
Everyone grabs a few slices of delicious Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Pizza and a few spoonfuls of my Corn and Avocado salad for a meal that gives them warm, crusty pizza with quality toppings and a cool, crunchy salad to balance it all out.
The adults generally go for the Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Supreme Pizza (it’s seriously loaded with amazing toppings) and the kids munch down on the Freschetta Naturally Rising Crust Foud Cheese Pizza.

In fact, with help from Freschetta, this busy mom can always serve up a quick and easy meal that satisfies, delights and makes dinner the best time of the day.
