Ristorante Pizza by Dr. Oetker = Delicious!

Yummy yummy yummy.

That's all I was thinking when eating up my first slice of Ristorante Frozen Pizza from Dr. Oetker. Now I'm not just saying this to promote a product. As a BzzAgent I'm required to be completely honest when I spread the Bzz about a product and this is my honest opinion even though I did get coupons to try the pizza for free.

I am 1/2 Italian and my Uncles/Aunts/Grandparent's etc. have owned and still own several Italian restaurants and pizzerias in New Jersey so I KNOW what I'm talking about when I say that is good pizza. I typically don't buy frozen pizza since I can get fresh pizza from any of the above restaurants, but I decided to give Ristorante pizza a shot and it is amazing.

My favorite part is how crispy the thin crust comes out. The key to getting the crispy crust is putting the pizza directly on the oven rack. Then we usually put a piece of foil on the bottom rack to catch and drippings. So far I have tried three different kinds, Spinaci, Vegetale and Speciale. I love saying those words since I'm currently taking Italian II at college and can actually pronounce them correctly haha.

Spinaci has lots of spinach, mozzarella and a garlic sauce.
Vegetale is loaded is tomates, peppers, onions, chilies and sour cream sauce.
Speciale is perfect for meat lovers with pepperoni, cooked ham and spices.

It is hard to pick a favorite since they were all really good but I think my favorite is the Vegetale or Spinaci one. I love pizzas with vegetables on them, it gives a little extra crunch.

As you can tell by the description the pizzas are not your typical cheese and red sauce. They are unique, thin crust, and just like fresh pizza. They are on the smaller side. As a main dish I'd say one pizza is good for no more than two people although the serving size is 1/3. If you're feeling like pizza but don't want to go out, buy some Ristorante Pizza! Another thing to note is that this pizza is a famous frozen pizza of Italy itself.

Don't argue with Italians! You'll never win haha. (;

Let me know if you try it. I believe they are only on northeast coast right now, but I could be wrong. See if you're grocery store is on the list here:

Talk to you soon!
