About Alive & Kickin'


We're crazy about pizza.

Alive & Kickin’ Pizza Crust, a division of Port City Bakery, Inc., started in 1989 when a group of friends turned their passion for pizza into a business we’re still crazy about. We’ve evolved quite a bit since those first days when we focused solely on custom dough for a handful of customers. Over the course of several years, we expanded our expertise to answer customer requests for self-rising and par-baked crusts, and frozen dough balls.

Today, Alive & Kickin’ is the supplier of choice for restaurants, food service and manufacturers across the country, offering a full line of remarkably good pizza doughs – so good, in fact, that customers confidently stake their reputations on them.
