Last night we challenged ourselves to a new pizza recipe inspired by Classico’s pizza sauces from their ‘Elevate Pizza Night’ challenge they sent out to us. Generally speaking, I had never been a fan of Classico sauce. If I used a can sauce it was Prego for quick family pasta or something that I could mix and add a ton of my own flavor to before it went on the table. But I had three little bottles of pizza sauce to taste test and give a go at….
And let me tell you, it that little jar of pre-made store bought pizza sauce was shockingly good. So much so that that’s how I wanted to approach this whole post – Shockingly Good Sauce by Classico. Box, canned and prepacked things just don’t often live up to my expectations any more. (I am not saying that with my nose in the air – I am totally down with Hamburger Helper and there is totally a frozen dinner just chilling in my freezer waiting for a night when I’m just too tired, but once you find a good home-made recipe to replace it, there’s simply no going back). We used the white pizza sauce. I had envisioned something a little more classy for my elevated pizzas, but Handsome had the idea of turning his cheesesteaks into a pizza topping and I kind of ran with it, while making it week night simple. So we came up withe this Philly inspired Thin Crust Cheesesteak Pizza.
We took one bite, and let’s just say, it was money baby.
(Truth, this pizza was made on Halloween eve. We were busy handing out candy to trick-or-treaters all night and keeping the dog from getting too excited. Proof is in the pudding, this meal works on a busy weeknight!)
Leave a comment for a chance to win a coupon to taste test one of these kicking jars of flavor yourself!

The fine print: PasstheSushi.com partnered with Classico for this post and was given products to test for the brand, however the recipe, photographs and opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine and I was not paid for participating in this program.
