Virtuoso reflects Dr. Oetker’s many years of baking expertise and never-ending passion for ensuring that perfection is baked into every pizza we make. The Virtuoso is someone who excels above and beyond in the performance of their chosen art form. In our case, it’s crafting best-in-class, premium pizza by applying very deliberate techniques, imagination and creativity to produce a frozen pizza that is so good you will forget it was ever frozen.
The recipes remain exactly the same as they were when they were Ristorante flavors. The pizzas have the exact same delicious taste but with a new brand name and updated packaging to more accurately reflect the best-in-class, quality pizza that has always been inside the box.
