Dr. Oetker launches its first Ristorante vegan pizza in UK super markets in delicious Margherita Pomodori flavour


Calling all pizza lovers! The nation’s top frozen pizza creator Dr. Oetker is launching its first vegan pizza today in the UK.

The Margherita Pomodori promises Italian inspired fresh pizzeria taste whilst delivering great flavour and texture from its fully plant-based recipe. Delizioso!

Furthermore, the Vegan Certified pizza features Ristorante’s signature thin, crispy crust and tomato sauce. Topped with grated ‘cheese’, juicy sundried and cherry tomatoes, it’s finished with a basil ‘pesto’ style garnish and priced only at £3.69.


Authenitc Restorante Pizza Flavour

Pizza experts at Dr. Oetker have worked hard to deliver the highly anticipated Margherita Pomodori by bringing in a panel of vegans and flexitarians to ensure the plant-based formula delivers the authentic Restorante pizza flavours whilst be completely plant-based.

According to the brand’s research, the UK saw a 17% increase in the number of plant-based meals since January.

In addition, the last year has seen a 42% increase in vegan frozen pizzas bought in retailers across the UK, compared to the previous year.


“Wanted to offer the best tasting, Italian inspired vegan pizza”

Dr. Oetker Senior Brand Manager Josephine Skinner, shared with Vegan Food and Living “While we are seeing more and more pizza options for vegans and flexitarians,

“There are few inspiring Italian-style options.”

Vegans have seen a rise in plant-based frozen pizzas, with brands such a Chicago Town and Pizza Express becoming increasingly available in UK supermarkets. Eager to compete with these brands, Skinner explains “We worked hard perfecting this recipe,

“We really wanted to offer the best tasting, Italian-inspired vegan pizza possible.”

For perfect results, Oetker recommends cooking the Ristorante vegan pizza by simply preheating the oven then bake for 10-12 minutes at 220 °C / 200°C fan / Gas Mark 6. Serve with fresh salad or even potato wedges for a week-day dinner treat.

Dr Oetker’s vegan pizza is rolling out to UK retailers now and you can check your nearest stockist using Dr Oetker’s handy store locator.
