For Immediate Release: December 16, 2020
Dierbergs and Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria are announcing the launch of Katie’s wood-fired, frozen pizzas now being sold exclusively at all St. Louis area Dierbergs Markets locations.
“We have always been huge fans of Katie’s Pizza. Being able to support entrepreneurs of vibrant local businesses like Katie’s – especially those that share our passion of giving back to our local community, is a win-win for our customers,” said Greg Dierberg President and CEO of Dierbergs Markets. “During a time in which many people are restricted from going out and enjoying restaurant-quality dining options, Katie’s is the perfect solution for them to bring Katie’s delicious creations home.”
The frozen pizzas made available to Dierbergs’ customers include Wood Fired Burrata Margherita, Wood Fired Meatball, Wood Fired Super Ezzo Pepperoni, Wood Fired Fig, Squash & Bacon Pizza, Wood Fired Extra Creamy Tuscan Kale Pizza, and Kid's Wood Fired Cheese Pizza. Each pizza is hand-stretched and baked in the restaurants’ 800-degree, wood-fired ovens. Chef Katie Collier uses the highest quality of scratch and specialty ingredients, then immediately blast chills them.
