Pizza + Art = PIZZART is in Kota Kinabalu!

Anchor is mostly recognized by bakers and food enthusiasts 
for their world-class butter and milk.

 But did you know they also produce a wide array of cheeses and cream ? 

Fonterra’s leading dairy food services segment, Anchor Food Professionals celebrates the festive season with a lot of cheesiness by elevating the pleasures of pizza to a whole new level.

This PizzArt campaign takes the enjoyment of pizza a notch up by infusing global food trends into local favourites. With the meat-endowed-cheese-oozing PizzBurger as one of its main attraction, the other four pizza inventions created by Anchor Food Professionals include an ambitious all-meat-based UltiMeat Pizza, a spin on Chicago’s authentic Deep Cheese Pizza, a hearty Cheese Pretzza as well as delicate Pizza Rolls.

Speaking at the unveiling of the second PizzArt campaign in Kota Kinabalu recently, Director of Anchor Food Professionals Malaysia, Ms Linda Tan spoke about how the brand taps into their New Zealand-based research and going beyond their role as consultants to their partner restaurants and clients. She added that the team is always ready to take up the challenge of drawing inspiration from worldwide trends and adapting them locally to help their partners stay ahead of the culinary curve, using only the best dairy by Anchor. With AFP’s New Zealand based research and expertise, the team is able to help them achieve a competitive edge.

“We want to excite the market and take the enjoyment of pizza a notch up by infusing global food trends into local favourites. This round we are working with 18 outlets in Peninsula Malaysia and East Malaysia. In Kota Kinabalu, customers of The Chubs Grill and Mad Ben Café are in for a treat with these one-of-a-kind pizzas just in time for Chinese New Year,” said Ms Tan.

In Kota Kinabalu, The Chubs Grill (non-halal) will be introducing the Ultimeat (RM33.80 per pizza), Pizza Rolls (RM23.80 for 4 pieces) and Cheese Pretzza (RM28.80 for 3 pieces). Mad Ben Café will be introducing Ultimeat (RM45) and Pizza Rolls (RM18).

She added, “These inventive pizzas under PizzArt were conceptualized and created by our own Anchor Food Professionals’ Hot Cooking Chefs. These pizzas can only be made by kitchen crew with advanced culinary skills, and in restaurants with pizza ovens. 

Anchor Food Professional hopes to trail blaze the increasingly popular innovative pizza movement in Malaysia. The likely Malaysian favourite, PizzBurger features a succulent grilled minced meat patty stuffed with Anchor Mozzarella Shredded Cheese, Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese and baked in light crust with Anchor Butter. The Deep Cheese Pizza draws inspiration from the Chicago-authentic deep dish pizza, featuring an elevated layer of stuffing filled with creamy, delicious Anchor Shredded Mozzarella Cheese and Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese with a hearty Putanesca filling. The Pizza Roll oozes cheesiness with every bite as it’s stuffed with Anchor Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Anchor Shredded Parmesan Cheese and Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese, Masala meat and spinach – perfect for breakfast and as snacks. The wholesome UltiMeat Pizza ambitiously features a pizza base made entirely out of ground meat deep fried to crusty perfection before being baked with Anchor mixed cheeses on top, great for sharing with loved ones. The meat-filled Cheese Pretzza, as the name suggests, incorporates Anchor Cream Cheese, Anchor Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Anchor Colby and Cheddar Cheese and Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream into the dough before it is baked and served with a side of pizza dipping sauce.
