Pizza Fridays are the best! It’s the end of the work week and you’re ready to order take out. Although you don’t intend to, you end up eating too many slices and before you know it, you start a downward spiral of unhealthy eating for the rest of the weekend. If this sounds familiar, consider modifying your Pizza Friday tradition by making it at home with Brooklyn Bred Ancient Grains Pizza Crust!

Here are 3 reasons why…

Reason #1: You can have more for less!  Check out the comparison:
