Smoked Sausage {cassouleet} Pizza - heathersfrenchpress.com #buy3save3

Does your family have a go-to meal?  One that you make and EVERYONE enjoys,NO complaints.

For us that is PIZZA.

I have been making 3 pizzas, EVERY Friday, for probably more than 10 years.


I’m not good at math, but that is A LOT of pizza.

I don’t mind because the kids love it. It always leaves leftovers for breakfast {yes, my kids eat pizza for breakfast}, and lunch. You cannot beat the cook once eat three times meals. They are a busy mom’s best friend.

BUT…when you make the same thing over, and over, and over again, it can get boring.

This week I was desperate for a pizza change-up. I found a terrific Cassoulet recipe from my friend Meghan  at  The Tasty Fork. My first thought was this would make a great pizza.

So how lucky was it that Safeway had a  Just  For U deal on Hillshire Farm products.

buy 3 save 3

If you are signed up for Just For U, you automatically save $3 when you buy 3 Hillshire Farm products.

Not wanting to disappoint the kids {they are PLAIN pizza types} I made a cheese for Stella, and a hot dog pizza with cheddar  for Charlie {he’s my burger and dog kid}
