Dr Oetker’s Panbello pizzas and a bakery bundle giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dr. Oetker for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Last weekend, I was excited to try out the new range of pizzas recently launched by Dr Oetker in Canada.

Panebello Bakery Crust Pizzas are a new line of frozen pizzas with “an exquisite crust that could only have been created by a master Baker.”  Made with a variety of high-quality ingredients, the pizza crust is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with the taste and texture like that of freshly baked bread from an artisan bakery.  The pizzas are available in four different varieties: Country Pepperoni, Classic Canadian, Vegetables and Goats Cheese and Bruschetta and are available at all major grocery retailers across Canada with a suggested retail price is $5.99 to $6.49.  Please visit oetker.ca for further information, including nutritional content and ingredients information.

We tasted these pizzas over the long weekend amidst a flurry of travel and garden/ landscaping action – so frozen pizza was the perfect quick-fix meal for a busy holiday Monday.  We don’t often buy frozen pizzas but when we do, it’s always Dr Oetker’s Ristorante range.  We’re generally not fans of the thicker crust pizzas so I was curious to see if these were as “light” as they sounded. We tried both the vegetable and the bruscetta versions.

As with all Dr Oetker pizzas, the flavours were tasty and we were pleasantly surprised by the  thicker-than-we-prefer-crust – actually much better than we had expected.  The outside is crispy and the inside fluffy so it does not have the unfortunate doughy quality that many other thicker crust pizzas do.

For me, it’s definitely a pizza that requires a knife and fork, though! Overall we were impressed and it’s good to know there’s a decent thicker crust pizza on the market now.

  1. Okay I know this might sound like paid advertising – but I have to say, this new pizza did – pleasantly – surprise me.

    I generally dislike thick, doughy pizzas. The bonus on these was leftovers for lunch, reheated in a microwave. I mean, what a way to take the life out of a pizza – right? Well not with these. In fact, the crust seems to stand up better than most in this respect, so I’m a fan.

    Mardi’s wrong on the knife & fork deal, though – she’s just trying to be “continental”. Totally not needed. 😉

    All the veggie & chevre one needed to be sublime was a bit of meat to be added…

  2. Looks pretty darned good for a frozen pizza – not that I’ve ever bought one. I’ve always been a believer, that like most cereals, the cardboard box would be more nutritional!!

  3. I have to say, for a frozen pizza that looks quite delicious! I usually make my own, but every once in a while when I’m feeling lazy it is good to know there are decent frozen options!

  4. I bet if you didn’t say “frozen pizza” that nobody would have been wiser. Seriously, that first image looks like a homemade pizza with lots of great toppings! Who knew?!

  5. My experience with frozen pizzas has always been dismal, and I’d rather have an egg and soldiers for a lazy dinner than one of the horrors offered by the supermarket.

    But these actually look and sound like a decent compromise for a lazy dinner. I’m not a thick base fan either so these have definitely piqued my curiosity.

    Not that I can try them here anyway, but now I will at least give frozen pizzas another go one day. With a knife and fork 😀

  6. I never knew they made pizzas! I enjoy Dr. Oetker’s other products from time to time… in a pinch when I’m feeling super lazy, the chocolate cake mix is almost as good as homemade (and doesn’t have any “weird” ingredients)
