A Great Frozen Pizza Alternative

Surely, you're familiar with pizza. It's one of the most popular frozen foods out there. But, what about empanadas? They're like mini-pizzas that are more portable and can be eaten on the go! Empanadas are a great food to have in your freezer for when you want something quick or need to bring a dish to someone's party.a plate of food on a table

And since they come in so many flavors, it'll be hard not to find an option that suits your taste buds completely! 

Benefits of Empanadas Over Pizza

While they are similar on the surface, there are actually some big differences between empanadas and pizzas.

Empanadas Are Great For Dietary Restrictions

A pizza has cheese, meat, and sometimes vegetables. But, an empanada can have any filling you want!. What about if you're the health-conscious type? Pick from one of our vegetarian options and feel good knowing that we use the best local ingredients in our empanadas!

They're More Portable Than Pizza

This is especially helpful if you have picky eaters who only want to eat finger food. Imagine them having to eat a pizza with a knife and fork; it would be quite messy. A cookie cutter-shaped empanada is much easier for kids to handle, especially on the go!

They Taste Better!

Finally, if you don't believe us, just try a bite of a freshly made empanada. There's nothing quite like it! When it comes to reheating, Frozen empanadas reheat much better than pizzas because the crust isn't soggy! They are crispy on the outside and cheesy or meaty on the inside. The pastry melts in your mouth, and you will be left wanting more!
