“Although the pizza market has been fairly reliant on commodity inflation and the thriving chilled sector for underlying growth, this report identifies tangible NPD opportunities to potentially encourage stronger volume growth and expand the user base. These include a clear demand among parents for pizza designed for children, strong interest in gluten-free and microwaveable pizzas and – in the wake of the horsemeat scandal – an appetite for British –sourced meat in toppings, peaking among the lower usage yet fast-growing over-65s demographic.”

Some questions answered in this report include:
The UK pizza market recorded an increase in value sales between 2008 and 2013, primarily fuelled by commodity inflation and also the thriving chilled sector, with its higher shelf prices. Overall volume growth climbed over the period, partly reflecting the popularity of the market and, also, demand for chilled pizza, which remains the driving force in both value and volume terms. Chilled pizza boasts a healthier and better quality image among consumers, whereas frozen has yet to remedy its association with being processed.
There are tangible NPD opportunities, however, with around a fifth of users showing interest in British-sourced meat while 23% of parents believe there is a lack of pizzas for children. And half of pizza users would like to see better quality microwaveable pizza.
