BzzAgent, which means that I get to try and review stuff and then share my opinion with you! The first campaign I got to participate in was for Dr. Oetker's Ristorante Pizza. First off, it's pronounced "oht-ker." Second, it's a brand that's been around since 1891. In 1891, Dr. August Oetker started out developing and selling baking soda in his pharmacy in Bielefeld, Germany. Five generations later, the company has grown quite a bit, but it still relies on the finest, freshest ingredients and restaurant-quality results. Its Ristorante Pizza has been a European favorite since 1985, but it wasn't until 2009 that it arrived stateside.
There are six pizza varieties: Mozzarella, Spinaci, Funghi, Quattro Formaggi, Vegetale, and Speciale. I tried the Speciale: pepperoni, cooked ham, and spicy herbs. It only took about 10 minutes to cook in the oven and when it came out, it's thin crust was super crispy! This was really good pizza! It wasn't too tomato-ey and really not spicy at all, despite the "spicy herbs" in the description. I really enjoyed it. (Unfortunately my husband could not enjoy it because it is NOT gluten-free, but that just meant there was more for me!)
Right now, Dr. Oetker's Ristorante Pizza is found in the frozen aisle of most major grocery stores on the East Coast. So if you live on the East Coast, visit oetker.us or ristorante.us to find specific grocery stores that carry the brand. (The websites also tell you what pizza varieties are available at what store.) The pizza retails for about $4.99.
BUT I want some lucky readers on the East Coast to try Dr. Oetker's for less than the retail price. I have eight coupons for $1.50 off one Dr. Oetker Ristorante Pizza. That means, I'll pick four lucky readers to each win two coupons! All you have to do is visit oetker.us or ristorante.us, pick which flavor of pizza you'd like to try, and let me know in the comments section by February 29. I'll use random.org to help me pick the winners and announce them shortly thereafter.
(Sorry to everyone who is not in the U.S. or on the East Coast. Hopefully they will expand the brand into other regions.)
