Dr. Oetker Professional has unveiled a Deep Dish Cheese & Tomato Pizza that counts as one of your five a day.
The new lighter dish has more tomato sauce, a two-cheese blend of reduced saturated fat cheddar and mozzarella, as well as diced tomato under the cheese – for a vegetable boost.
A foodservice first, the Deep Dish 1-of-5 a Day Pizza is ideal for operators looking to meet consumer demand for healthier dishes when eating out – especially children’s menus.
Richard Cooper, senior brand manager, Dr. Oetker Professional (UK) explains: “Families are eating out more and more and parents are asking for better options their children will want to eat and most importantly enjoy. Unlike ready-made dishes, our new Deep Dish 1-of-5 a Day Pizza is low in sugar, fat and a source of protein. That’s a very strong message for family focused operators to put on their menus and show customers – especially parents – their children can still have a portion of vegetables even when they’re treating them.”
The 5-inch pizza is vegetarian, easy to cook in the oven and has a holding time of 45 minutes. It comes frozen in a 24 x 170g case.
