Pizza Capers launches low-fat pizza

Posted by Nicole Eckersley on 2nd March 2010

Pizza Capers - The LouisianaGourmet pizza franchise Pizza Capers has announced a new range of four low-fat pizzas, containing less than 3% fat and less than 400mg of sodium per 100g.

Pizza Capers co-founder Scott Geiszler said he hoped the rest of the pizza industry would follow Pizza Caper’s lead and create low-fat options for their customers.

“For the past 14 years Pizza Capers has been creating healthy and delicious food, with only 1.64 per cent of our menu featuring food that is over 10 per cent fat. Other well known pizza chains have menus with up to 50 per cent of the items over 10 per cent fat,” said Pizza Capers co-founder Scott Geiszler.  “It is time for the industry to stop talking the talk and start walking the walk.”

The pizza range, which has been in development for 12 months, consists of four flavours: Louisiana Chicken, Provencal Beef, Thai Barramundi and Prawn and Rustic Fruit and Veg.

Pizza Capers, recently ranked 9th-fastest-growing franchise in Australia by outlet in BRW Fast Franchises 2009, opened in 1996 in Kenmore, Queensland.  A second store in 2002 led to quick growth and franchising opportunities; Pizza Capers now operates a dozen corporate stores and 66 franchised outlets around Australia.
