Nutritional values

This pizza is well suited for filling and enjoying! Besides, the daily requirement of potassium (for the regulation of the water balance in our body), zinc (for our immune system) and many B vitamins (for a smooth energy metabolism) is covered.

It is best to drink freshly squeezed orange juice with your pizza - then your body can absorb the iron it contains particularly well. One portion of pizza covers 85 percent of your daily iron requirement! The trace element is essential for the formation of blood pigmentation and oxygen transport.
