Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza Review

We are a family who loves pizza. Pepperoni, Hawaiian {this is only the Husband – I don’t believe fruit & bread should be combined & cooked!}, BBQ chicken, plain old margarita! So…yeah, we love pizza. It’s such an easy dish to pop into the oven, and out comes something that can be shared and can give your taste buds a little party in your mouth. 

I’ll be honest, this was our first time having a Dr.Oetker Ristorante pizza and I was impressed by the range of toppings available – they have also re-released an old favourite, the Pizza Spinaci which was originally launched as a limited edition flavour back in 2013. Some of the other flavours available include; Speciale, Funghi, Hawaii, Mozzarella, Spinaci, Pepperoni – Salame & Pollo. For our family, I chose the Pepperoni – Salame & the Hawaii pizzas for us to enjoy. 

Ristorante is all about sharing that fresh Italian pizza taste, even if it’s been frozen and as a busy Mum, I love nothing more than being able to unwrap a frozen pizza and effortlessly put it into the oven to cook. It takes as little as 10-13mins to cook and before you know it, you have food in front of you. Super handy when you have a herd of hangry kids too! Which I often do! 

When I took my first bite of the pizza I couldn’t help but be impressed. I think it’s quite hard to find a frozen pizza that tastes as though it’s just been made in a restaurant kitchen. The flavours were so intense and amazing and I also loved how thin the base was. I find with a thin base that you don’t get too stuffed {with that horrible sluggish feeling afterwards} – it’s the right amount of food to make you feel satisfied and happy. A true taste explosion for me – and the pepperoni – salame has now shot up to be my favourite pizza. 

My husband {who had an entire Hawaii pizza to himself} said that his pizza was delicious as well. Really flavoursome and he also appreciated the thin base.

We both did say however that these pizzas are more of a date night pizza – they aren’t something for the whole family due to the cost of them, in our opinion. Each Ristorante pizza at our local Supermarket was £4 each – which I would never normally pay for – however, I was kindly supplied with two vouchers to help towards the cost of them. But then again, you do get what you pay for and after tasting these pizzas we can understand why they cost so much because they really do taste amazing. 

Have you tasted Ristorante pizzas? I’d love to know which flavour is your favourite!

    We often buy pizzas in on the rare occasions that my husband and I go out to feed our kids and the babysitter and the Hawaii pizza from Dr Oetker is definitely a favourite of theres!

    I have to admit we do like having a pizza in reserve for lazy evenings but I don’t think we have tried these ones from Dr Oetker, I am going to have to perhaps give them a whirl next.

    My boyfriend loves these pizzas! They are a reasonable price compared to some of the other brands as well.

    I’m so with you….I think frozen pizzas are better then 75% of the pizza places we have around me. And they are much more affordable as well!

    I’m not a fan of pizza, but I know the rest of my family likes it, so I might give this a try 😉
