Doctor Veggie: Quorn joins Dr Oetker for pizza range

TWO big hitting brands from the frozen food aisle have teamed up to make the most of growing demand for vegetarian options with the launch of a new pizza range.

Frozen pizza brand Dr Oetker Ristorante is the latest firm to offer veggie-friendly options after teaming up with meat substitute brand Quorn to launch two new pizzas.

Ristorante Pizza Pesto is a thin and crispy pizza topped with Quorn Vegetarian Chicken, red onion, peppers and a pesto garnish sauce, while Ristorante Pizza Royale has Quorn Vegetarian Bacon and mushrooms on top of a garlic sauce.

With a 20% year on year increase in spend within the gluten free and vegetarian sector, the new partnership is targeted at the 2.1m meat-free buyers who don’t currently purchase frozen pizza.
