Banza, a company that has developed chickpea-based pasta, rice, and mac & cheese, announced its largest category expansion to date with the introduction of frozen pizza made with a chickpea crust.
Banza's new pizzas have more protein and fiber, and fewer net carbs and sodium, than traditional (wheat-based) and better-for-you (cauliflower-based) frozen pizzas currently sold in the market. With a high-quality and minimal ingredient list, Banza relies on whole ingredients like chickpeas, olive oil, yeast, and oregano to deliver the taste and texture consumers crave when eating pizza.
The new line is available in three ready-to-eat varieties including Four Cheese, Roasted Veggie and Margherita, and a two-pack, build-your-own Plain crust option. Each pie cooks in the oven for less than 15 minutes and provides either eight servings (for Plain Crust, which comes with two crusts per package) or two servings (for others).
Since launching five years ago, Banza has become the fastest-growing pasta brand in the US and is currently sold in more than 13,500 stores. The company now offers 16 different pasta shapes, four varieties of chickpea rice, and six varieties of mac & cheese.
Banza Pizza is now available nationwide at Target, Whole Foods Market, Wegmans, and Heinen's, as well as online at Amazon and EatBanza.com, with an SRP of $8.99.
