Schwan’s Food Service (SFSI), Bloomington, Minn., introduced Big Daddy’s, a par-baked pizza featuring uncured turkey and beef pepperoni, providing foodservice operators a pepperoni option with no artificial preservatives, no BHA or BHT and no nitrates or nitrites.

“We’re tremendously excited to serve this pizza to students across the country who are asking for foods with cleaner ingredient lists,” says Wendy Osborn, K-12 channel marketing manager.

Each slice has 360 calories and offers 19 grams of protein and significant amounts of the daily recommended values of calcium, potassium and iron.

SFSI also expanded its Tony’s 4x6-inch Thick Crust Pizza line with new Turkey and Beef Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage varieties.

“These new pizzas offer customers expanded flavor variety and menu acceptance,” says Osborn.
