REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Dr. Oetker Ristorante Frozen Pizza


We only joined the frozen pizza train recently and I don’t know how we didn’t try this convenient option sooner!  Not only are the super faster to make, but they are also incredibly cost effective for the same pizzeria taste!  Recently we were invited to try Dr. Oetker’s Pizza Ristorante.  Dr. Oetker is new to the states but has been a long time favorite in Europe.  They make everything from cake mixes to pizzas, as well as an extensive organic line.  Dr. Oetker Ristorante Frozen Pizzas, although from Germany, is the #1 Frozen Pizza in Italy!  Who knew?!

We got to sample two of the six choices available, Pizza Mozzarella and Pizza Funghi.  I love thin crust pizza and Dr. Oetker did not disappoint.  While my Pizza Mozzarella arrived cracked, it didn’t harm the flavor at all.  A quick 10-minutes in my toaster oven, which fit a perfect 12″ pizza pie with not problem, and it was ready!  The cheese was melted just the right gooey-ness and the tomatoes were as fresh as can be.  I particularly loved the little globs of what I thought was pesto, but simply a mixture of herbs.  It was light and delicious!

Later on in the week, I tried the Pizza Funghi as a late afternoon snack and it hit the spot nicely.  So nicely I ate the entire pie by myself!  Yes, label me PIG.

So here was the true test.  Now a frozen pizza addict/connoisseur, while out and about at our favorite Target, I looked for Dr. Oetker and was sadly disappointed they did not stock it there.  I decided to settle and try their store brand which looked similar and hoping to satisfy my craving.  Sadly, it was far from similar and if Target is reading… please stock up on Dr. Oetker’s Pizza Ristorante!  I just visited their store locator page and why am I not surprised that Stew Leonard’s is a carrier?!  Yippee!  They are also at Shoprite and Stop & Shop too!

Guess who’s making a trip to Stew’s this week?
