Pizza, wine, & a Netflix session

Do you ever have those days when you just need to be completely by yourself? Not even in a negative way, but your body is just starving for some good ol' quality "me" time? You don't want to cook, delivery would take too long, and you maybe-also-sort-of don't feel like putting on pants? I had one of those days last week, and I gotta say, me time is pretty freaking wonderful.



It was kind of gloomy out, I was super exhausted from an event the night before, and I just needed to have a zen moment with a few of my favorite things: pizza, wine, and a nice deep Netflix session. California Pizza Kitchen Oven-Ready Pizzas recently launched a new style of oven-ready pizzas coming in five different varieties. Being a fan of the chain, and the pizza snob that I am, I had to try the Gluten-Free Crispy Thin Crust BBQ Recipe Chicken Oven-Ready pizza, thats perfectly topped with premium toppings like zesty red onions, white meat chicken and smoked Gouda. I have to say, I was a little skeptic that this pizza would pass the test that is my mouth.


I'm happy to report that my initial thought was wrong, and I was pleasantly surprised at how great this oven-ready pizza is. It's perfectly inspired by something you can get at a California Pizza Kitchen restaurant, except in the comfort of your own home. The flavor goes above your ordinary oven-ready pizza, and I was extremely impressed by the luxurious feel it had to it. I never thought I'd say that about a frozen pizza, but here I am.


I decided to pair this bad boy with another love of mine, Chardonnay. The crisp flavor really helped to bring out the flavor of the BBQ, so I highly recommend pairing it up with either a Chardonnay or a Rose of sorts. California Pizza Kitchen's website also has a ton of other great pairing ideas, and you can view that here.


To say my day was great is to say it in the least accurate way possible. It was amazing, and definitely needed. I was able to enjoy my pizza, my wine, and my Netflix all in my favorite place: my bed.
