Banza, a US producer of chickpea-based products such as pasta and rice, has entered a new category with the introduction of a new range of frozen pizzas featuring chickpea crusts.
According to sources, the new line includes three varieties – Four Cheese, Roasted Veggie and Margherita – as well as a two-pack with a plain crust option. All variants are claimed to be made with minimal, “high quality” ingredients.
Banza CEO and co-founder Brian Rudolph said: “Chickpeas are one of the most nutrient-dense and environmentally friendly foods available, yet we consume far less of them than we should. At Banza, we’re demonstrating the versatility of the ingredient and increasing consumption by using them to upgrade some of America’s favourite foods – pasta, rice and now, pizza”.
Banza’s pizza is available throughout the US in a range of retailers at a price of $8.99.
