Literally translated from Italian to "whip", at Trader Joe's a Frusta is a little something we've whipped up to make it easier for you to enjoy something yummy without having to put much effort into it. Trader Giotto's 5 Cheese Frusta starts with a uniquely-shaped pizza crust - stretched to an oval shape and topped, then pinch-folded in the middle, by hand, with the toppings exposed on either end. It's like a figure-8-shaped pizza for one. More importantly, it's a great-eating figure-8-shaped pizza for one. It's topped with a light, tomato-herb sauce and five cheeses - Mozzarella, Emmental, Edam, Provolone and Rebekase. It's wood-fired, rustic-looking, and entirely enjoyable from first look to last bite.
5 Cheese Frusta heats in a 400º oven in about 10 minutes. Cut it into slices and serve it as an appetizer course, or add a green salad and make it your dinner. Dinner in about 10 minutes? We did say the Frusta was going to make yummy a bit easier. And affordable, too. We're selling each 6.5 ounce 5 Cheese Frusta for $2.29, every day. You'll find it in our freezers.
