Freedom Pizza a different kind of pizza and definitely a different kind of pizza company
Regular readers of DoinDubai will know that I’m not big on fast food and I certainly don’t order pizzas for my dinner, but last Christmas I got a gingerbread house in a Pizza box from Freedom Pizza. They were really happy with the video and the social media exposure I did for them in relation to this so we stayed in touch.
It’s not only about pizza at Freedom Pizza…
Their Super Foods Salads are made up of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. They also have a very helpful nutritional guide on the website that gives you the calories of all the items and they’re honest about it too. They’re not afraid to point out that sometimes your organic salad dressing is slightly more calorific than your salad! So watch that…
Whether you’re one of the 55,000 Freedom Pizza fans here in Dubai or you’re ready to give Freedom Pizza a try for the first time, be ONE of our SIX lucky winners.
The toppings on this newly created Beetnik pizza include organic beetroot, spring onion, fennel, parsley, thyme, caramelized onions and a bit of creamy goats’ cheese. When we sampled it, it was deliciously different!
They also have an amazing new Mango Pasho pudding that
I would serve at a dinner party as my own creation if I could get it neatly out of the box!
Freedom Pizza was born in April 2015
The Freedom Pizza owners used to operate under the franchise of NKD pizza in Dubai, but from April 2015, they broke ‘’free” from that contract and now own and run Freedom Pizza with 6 branches in the UAE including an outlet in VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates. They are also opening in Abu Dhabi in February 2016.
Freedom Pizza Philosophy
One of the owners of Freedom Pizza is Ian Ohan, a Canadian expat living in Dubai and a dad of 3 himself. He’s really conscious of what his kids eat (if you were a kid, imagine if your dad owned a pizza delivery company!) so that’s why he decided to cut their Chocolate Brownie (also gluten free) into 4 sections – who has the 4th bit then? Each portion is 80 calories and costs AED 17.
Can we have this in a re-sealable bag please Ian?
Sourcing healthy foods and supporting local companies
The owners are partnering with companies they feel have the same approach as them in promoting good health. Essentially sourcing as much locally as possible, but they also do source some ingredients from overseas.
Some of their cheese is from a dairy farm in the UK. The mozzarella they use from here is made from half whole milk and half low-fat milk and only has 4 ingredients. Their chicken is from M&J Chickens in Australia, and is hormone free.
Their partnership with Greenheart Organic Farms here in Dubai means they even have a Freedom Pizza garden that supplies almost all of the fresh produce for their menu items!
Last Christmas they teamed up with a dessert company called Savarin and produced the Gingerbread house in a pizza box! Freedom Pizza was Savarin’s first client.
More recently they’ve teamed up with Coco Yogo (based in DIP) that make gluten free and vegan desserts. I didn’t know you could get vegan cheese but you can, so of course there is also a vegan pizza available with cheese!
What makes the Freedom Pizza different?
It’s the high fibre and diversity of ingredients in both their bases and their pizza toppings. Their pizza base is multigrain and it’s this diversity of ingredients and high fibre content that encourage a healthy balanced bacterial environment where disease is less likely to prevail in the gut. The slow, sustained release of energy from the high fibre base avoids the post meal ‘crash’ experianced by some from eating single grain, highly processed pizzas.
