Freschetta adds sea salt, olive oil to sauce used in frozen pizzas

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — A frozen pizza brand has reformulated the sauce used in its Brick Oven pizza varieties.

Freschetta said the sauce used on its pizzas now feature sea salt and olive oil. In the brand's Brick Oven line, the five Italian cheese, pepperoni and Italian style cheese, zesty Italian style supreme, spinach and mushroom, and three meat medley varieties now feature sea salt and olive oil. The sea salt and olive oil sauce will be incorporated into the Naturally Rising line of Freschetta pizzas later this year, the company noted.

"Through the Freschetta brand we continue to make ongoing strides to improve upon our pizzas by offering the most flavorful, highest-quality ingredients in the frozen pizza category," Freschetta senior brand manager Stacy Bergmann said. "We have taken note of how consumers are continuing to seek out better, more flavorful ingredients like sea salt and olive oil, and are excited to have added these fresh-tasting ingredients into our pizza sauce."
