Crust: Enriched wheat flour, water, vegetable oil, yeast, salt, sugar.

Sauce: Tomato puree, water, vegetable oil, salt, sugar, modified corn starch, modified palm oil, garlic powder, hydrolyzed corn protein, mono and diglycerides, dextrose, spices, caramel colour.

We find it crazy that a simple food item like pizza has over 20 ingredients!

Food Story...

On the packaging, we see a "SOS children villages" sign. It is a non-profit organization which works towards protect the rights of children. This food's story affects the health of the environment by helping and supporting the rights of children. If you "like" Dr. Oetker on facebook, 5 cents goes towards SOS. If you "like" Dr. Oetker you will receive a pin. If you enter that pin on the Raise Some Dough Facebook page, 25 cents will go to SOS. This is kind way to give back. Dr Oetker is using some of their profits to give back!
