That’s right people the #Spinaciisback and I for one could not be more excited. There are never enough flavours and choices of fresh and frozen pizzas for vegetarians (some of us do like more than just Cheese and Tomato shockingly) so to have another choice and a favourite at that is a total winner in my book for sure!
“The UK’s no. 1 thin and crispy frozen pizza brand, Dr. Oetker Ristorante is delighted to announce the return of Pizza Spinaci to its menu of varieties.
Since originally launching as a Limited Edition variety in 2013, fans have continuously requested the return of Ristorante Pizza Spinaci through the brand’s social media and customer service channels.
Lucy Hurrell-Morgan, Brand Manager at Dr. Oetker Ristorante commented, “While we regularly introduce limited editions to our menu, we received unprecedented levels of feedback asking for the return of Spinaci and we felt the time was right to give pizza fans what they want”
To be honest they had me at Pizza! I did try the Spinaci when it was in stores previously and really love it then. A nice thin trademark crispy base from Ristorante, a nice tomato sauce, the whole pizza covered in yummy spinach and topped with cheese – what’s not to love?! With all that spinach I’d also go as far as saying this pizza has got to be so healthy and good for you right?!
So the lovely people over at Ristorante sent me some delicious Spinaci Pizzas for my family and I to try and we couldn’t wait – as I said, so nice to have a different style pizza. Cooking time was quick (about 12 minutes) although I do tend to go on when the cheese is just slightly golden, but then everyone loves their pizzas cooked differently don’t they? Nonna likes hers to look practically anemic and Alyssa doesn’t care as long as the cheese is melted and the tomato is sauce… just like her!
It’s a nice decent sized pizza and Nonna and I shared one and Bear had his own whilst giving a couple of thin slices to Alyssa who loves pizza and garlic bread possibly about as much as she loves Mimmie – I know, that’s A LOT of love! The base was nice and crisp as per all their yummy pizzas but not so crisp you need to see the dentist after. One thing I love about this pizza is they haven’t scrimped on the cheese. There is enough so that it spreads across the whole pizza and you don’t need to add any extra to it.
Honestly, it tasted better than I remembered! The spinach doesn’t taste like its been frozen at all and as I said it was deliciously cheesy. I think the tomato is quite subtle and Alyssa would probably have liked a bit more of it but as a whole we were so pleased to see these back. They’re currently available in Asda stores everywhere and last time I looked (because I had to go buy some more obviously… and the Funghi!!) they were on offer too – BONUS!
