Have you ever had a Pizookie?!

What is your favorite kind of pizza?  Do you like pan, thin crust or stuffed crust?  How about toppings? Do you like pepperoni, sausage, ham and pineapple or maybe supreme?   Friday night is pizza and a movie night at our house. We usually make our own pizza, but every once in a while we enjoy ordering out. 

Last week, my hubby and I had the opportunity to try a new "brand" of pizza.  This new pizza was at a local restaurant in Mesquite, TX called BJ's Restaurants.  Their staff was wonderful!  They treated us as if we were royalty.  They even made sure we had the best waiter ever, Shaka!  He introduced us to the menu and guided us as we picked out our wonderful "Party for Two" meal deal that only cost us $19.95.  The deal included a wonderful salad or soup for two, a medium signature pizza, and a Pizookie (more about that later) for dessert.  This deal is actually available in your local restaurant until April 29th!

Bj's Restaurant has great soft drinks.  Dave tried a freshly made root beer, black cherry soda and a cream soda.  He was thirsty :) and very impressed.  I am a lemonade snob, so I had to try out their strawberry lemonade.  I do not like anything that tastes artificial; not even the strawberry syrup some restaurants add.  This was, by far, the best strawberry lemonade I have ever had!  Delish!  

We also enjoyed a "new to us" salad - Watermelon Feta!  This salad got a rousing 10+ points.  We both LOVED it.  

BJ's Restaurants pizza is different than any we have ever had.  The crust is deliciously light and airy.  Because the pizza doesn't feel heavy, we were both surprised that we were full after just a couple of slices.  

Now for the wonderful dessert - the Pizookie.  Basically a Pizookie is a cookie in the shape and size of a mini pizza.  Hence the name PIZza and cOOKIE.  I had heard many rant and rave about this famous dessert and was really looking forward to trying it out myself.  I wanted to see if it was as good as everyone was saying.   Well...they were right. Pizookies are delicious!  We had the peanut butter Pizookie and had no trouble finishing it, as you can see from the picture.  :0)  

You can see a lot more of their Pizookie desserts on their facebook page and on pinterest. 

BJ's Restaurants, you will definitely be seeing us again soon!  Thank you to BJ's Restaurants and Pollinate Media Group for this wonderful opportunity!
