COLUMBUS, Ohio — Today marks the launch of Sonoma Woodfired, a premium oven-ready pizza line that’s bringing a pizza style typically exclusive to restaurants and owners of fancy kitchens to grocery store shelves. The new line, introduced by the Jane’s Dough Foods culinary creatives behind Sonoma Flatbreads Gluten-Free and Donatos Edge-to-Edge pizzas, will be available in select stores nationwide, starting May 1.
Through an authentic wood-fire cooking technique, Sonoma Woodfired captures the signature smoky flavor and aroma of the style and ensures its pizza crusts are light and crispy, never soggy. The Sonoma Woodfired pizza crusts are made with just six natural ingredients, and are paired with a full-bodied sauce, made from sun-ripened organic tomatoes, and simple, yet flavorful toppings without any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.
Each pizza is topped with a unique, flavor-infused drizzle, specially crafted to complement the bold flavors of Sonoma Woodfired. The drizzle is a first in the frozen pizza category, bringing an artisanal flair to the oven-ready aisle. The wood-fired pizza line launches with three distinct varieties:
- Kickin’ Chicken: Tender grilled chicken breast, roasted zucchini, butternut squash, portabella mushrooms and roasted red peppers top the finest blend of aged, naturally smoked provolone and Asiago cheeses. Finished with a mesquite barbecue sauce drizzle.
- Tofumami: Zesty flour-crusted organic tofu, portabella mushrooms, caramelized onions, red onions atop aged, naturally smoked provolone and Asiago cheeses. Finished off with a rich, sweet balsamic glaze drizzle.
- Trill Pepp: Savory uncured pepperoni, premium natural pepperoni and diced pepperoni come together with delicious aged, naturally smoked provolone and Romano cheese. Finished with oregano and a roasted tomato-garlic drizzle.
“Consumers don’t want to sacrifice quality ingredients, bold flavors and clean labels in exchange for a night in,” said Stan Jacot, president of Jane’s Dough Foods, the creators of the Sonoma Woodfired line. “With this launch, we’re making authentic wood-fired pizza with natural, flavorful toppings more accessible to consumers who refuse to settle.”
