Yes, it’s true. There is now a delicious way to enjoy pepperoni pizza and mac & cheese together. And you can thank Trader Joe’s for this new food mash-up masterpiece.
“There are foods you eat every day, and there are foods you dream about eating,” food retailer Trader Joe’s explained. And so, the company thought about combining two of America’s most favorite foods. Eventually, they came up with the Trader Joe’s Pepperoni Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl or as the company likes to call it, the Pizza Mac & Cheese.
Trader Joe’s started with a basic mac & cheese recipe before bringing in the pepperoni.
“With every bite, your palate will puzzle the answers to: Is this pizza? Is this mac & cheese? We assure you; it’s both! You’re welcome,” Trader Joe’s explained. The way Trader Joe’s approached coming up with their recipe was pretty straightforward. First, they started with a classic recipe of mac & cheese using elbow macaroni and some good cheddar cheese. After working that part out, Trader Joe’s proceeded to tackle the pepperoni pizza part.
Trader Joe’s: Pizza Mac & Cheese is not fancy, but fantastic!
To make this possible, they topped the classic mac & cheese with a few more delicious ingredients. That includes tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and of course, several slices of uncured pepperoni. This food creation also comes with garlic, basil, salted butter and extra virgin olive oil. The result was what some may call fast food heaven. “It’s not fancy; it is fantastic!” Trader Joe’s exclaimed.
You can enjoy this in no time because it only takes a few minutes to heat up.
The best part about the Pizza Mac & Cheese? Trader Joe’s says it only takes six minutes in the microwave for you to have an epic meal. If you happen to be using a conventional oven though, you would need to heat it up just a little bit longer.
The Trader Joe’s Pizza Mac & Cheese Bowl is selling for $2.99. One pack weighs 12 ounces and is guaranteed to leave you satisfied.
