Anyone else here have a Dr 's Casa di Mama pizza addiction? :)

Anyone else here have a Dr 's Casa di Mama pizza addiction? I eat it once or twice a week...

I looked on the Dr 's Swiss website, seems you guys in CH have slightly different topping set ups to us in Canada...

Right now, the US only has the "Restaurente" Dr ', while we in Canada get Casa di Mama, Panabello and Restaurente crust versions.

Re: Anyone else here have a Dr 's Casa di Mama pizza addiction? :)

Why would anyone in Switzerland eat a frozen pizza made in some German factory when we can buy fresh, hot pizzas made by real Italians?

True...

I should have asked that half-Italian girl from Chur I went to college with to make me some pizza while wearing traditional GR dress

I sometimes buy frozen pizzas...

(It's not always easy to make myself a proper lunch when I've got a little one crawling about...)

I like the Dr. O's one with spinach on it, and then I throw some garlic and sliced sun-dried tomatoes on there as well. Yum.

If frozen pizza - than only Casa di mama When we lived in NL I used to buy 3 pieces for 5 euro (action). Here one costs 6,50 chf. Once in a while it is a quite tasty option for a quick lunch/dinner.

It's about the same price here, but every second week a grocery store around here will have them on for about half price.

Re: Anyone else here have a Dr 's Casa di Mama pizza addiction? :)

I used to be a bit addicted back in the UK. Then I got over it. They are still nice once in a while though. Not tried one here (mainly due to price) but I think toppings are different to UK too.

It really is bordering on violating the trade description law to call those things pizza.

TBH I wouldn't know, as I've not had a frozen pizza in years, but it's a fair assumption. Frozen pizza has always been bad, espcially in the UK (and presumably the US) where they seem to be judged on thickness and nothing else.

Actually, I tell a lie - when my sister and family were over for a ski week a couple of years back she decided to make dinner for us one night... frozen pizza bought from the village co-op. I was starving that night, and not only was the stuff virtually inedible but she'd only bought two, I think, or maybe three, between the six of us. Didn't have the heart to tell her, so went to bed hungry that night...

Or Serbians or Turks, as is the case with a couple of my preferred pizza places.

Re: Anyone else here have a Dr 's Casa di Mama pizza addiction? :)

All being said and done, Dr. Oetkers are probably one of the best frozen pizza, and always handy to keep a few in the freezer, for when the kids want a quick snack.

Thin crust are soooo much better than chewy, claggy, doughy thick crust.

Back in the UK in PizzaHut/Express/Land, it was always better to order thin crust - twice the diameter as thick crust for the same money = much more topping.

I know they aren't comparable to freshly-made pizza, but they sure fit the bill to feed the left-at-home teens/pre-teens when OH comes home on a weeknight and says, "Let's go out tonight, just you and me!"

Ya, it's still not the same as pizza from a decent pizzeria, but better than the rest of the frozen pizza available here.

There made in Germany for the Canadian market until 2014, when they will open in plant in Canada...

That one word tells you everything you need to know about frozen pizza.

Why don't you encourage your teens to make their own when you go out?
I'm being serious - teach them. Dough takes 10 mins to make & an hour to prove. Then they can muck around with toppings. They get to learn, have fun make, a big mess - hopefully have a stab at cleaning it up! & get to eat food that's not made in a 'plant', stuffed full of salt, saturated fat & god knows what else & along the way gain a bit more confidence & responsibility.

Indeed.

Mine have learned to make various pasta sauces, pasta from flour and eggs, cakes, cookies, pancakes, bread/pizza dough all from scratch, and how to operate the meat slicer.

And, they also know how to buy missing ingredients at the store.

Been doing that since they were 10/12, sometimes for a week or two at a time!
