Kontos Foods, Inc. a U.S.- based manufacturer and distributor of traditional artisan breads and Mediterranean specialty foods, announced the launch of a new two-pack size of Kontos Personal Pizza Crust. Targeted at traditional retailers as well as discount grocers throughout the U.S., the package contains two 7-inch, hand-stretched pizza bases with olive oil baked into the crust for extra crunch.

“Our marketing research shows that when it comes to making food choices, consumers are trending toward ‘individualism,’ which means they are eager to tailor their meals to their own particular tastes,” says Steve Kontos, vice president at Kontos Foods. “We developed Kontos 2-Pack Personal Pizza Crusts for home cooks who may want to present a varied, mix-and-match assortment of flavors for family dinners or social gatherings, creating a unique experience for everyone at the table.” 

Personal Pizza Crusts are also an easy meal solution for busy families with varied tastes. “You can feed the kids exactly what they enjoy, and even engage them to create their own pizzas with whatever toppings appeal to them,” adds Warren Stoll, Kontos Foods’ marketing director. 

Personal pizzas, adorned with traditional toppings such as tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese or pepperoni, are also delicious when served with more adventurous ingredients such as spicy shrimp, buffalo chicken, salmon, Thai or pesto sauce. Cut into wedges, they make ideal party appetizers. Kontos Personal Pizzas cook in approximately five minutes in a conventional oven. For recipes, visit www.kontos.com/recipes/.

Kontos Personal Pizza Crusts are fully vegetarian and weigh 79 grams. The product’s recommended retail placement is alongside pizza fixings such as bottled pizza sauces and cheeses.

Kontos sells its products to retailers and foodservice establishments across North America and several other countries.
