Plant-based pizza crusts are on the rise thanks to forward-thinking companies such as Venice Bakery, Pie Five Pizza Co., and Caulipower. With 65% of consumers stating that taste is the primary driver of purchase of plant-based products, high-quality pizza crusts made with vegetables such as cauliflower, sweet potato, and beet root are appealing to them.
Another unique vegetable on the pizza crust scene is broccoli. Spinato’s Fine Foods, a leading provider of frozen pizza featuring crust made with broccoli, has announced expanded sales distribution of its Broccoli Crust Pizza, which is now available for purchase in grocery chains across the country.
These better-for-you pizzas feature nutrient-rich broccoli to create flavorful crusts and are made with ingredients such as rBST-free cheese, hormone-free chicken sausage, nitrate-free pepperoni, and sauce made with herbs and vine-ripened tomatoes from local farms.
Spinato’s Broccoli Crust Pizza is also certified gluten-free, MSG-free, and trans-fat-free. It comes in four flavors: Mediterranean Supreme; Primavera; Aged Asiago, Romano, Mozzarella; and Margherita with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes.
“After tasting our broccoli crust pizza, consumers are just as excited about our products as we are. We are thrilled that more shoppers nationwide will now be able to give our pizzas a try,” says Anthony Spinato, cofounder and president of Spinato’s.
