Taste Test: Dr. Oetkers Pizza

Risto-USA-Mozzarella-Web.jpegI recently participated in a fun online chat with The Motherhood about preparing dinner at home for my family. The event was sponsored by Dr. Oetker’s pizza, a company that boasts the #1 selling frozen pizza that’s sold in Italy. If that’s not a ringing endorsement, then I don’t know what is! Following the chat, we were informed that within a few weeks, we’d get the chance to try out Dr. Oetker’s pizza since it’s now officially available in supermarkets nationwide. And last week, a special delivery arrived on my doorstep.
Let me first say that as someone who was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York, I pride myself on being a pizza connoisseur. I particularly love a good slice of pizza that has the perfect blend of crust, cheese and sauce. I am also a huge fan of thin sliced pizza – perhaps it ties into my fixation with weight loss – the thinner the crust, the less caloric intake. I first sampled the traditional pizza mozzarella which includes tomatoes, edam cheese and a flavorful mixture of herbs. I have to say – the taste is unlike any frozen pizza I’ve ever tried. The crust is thin and crispy, there’s a perfect amount of sauce and cheese on the pie and the herbs give it a flavor that’s completely unique. Trust me when I tell you that you definitely can’t mistake it for any other frozen pizza brand.
The next pie we sampled was the Quattro Formaggi, which features a blend of mozzarella, Edam, Emmental and blue cheese, complemented by basil seasoning on a crispy thin crust. Since my husband is the resident cheese lover in the family, I gave him the dubious honor of tasting this pizza and the overwhelming consensus was that it too was muy delicioso!
So if you’re like me and you’ve hit the end of the week dinner doldrums, bring home a Dr. Oetker’s pizza pie and get ready to please all the palates in your family!
