    Authentic Wood Fired Crusts.jpgFire and food. The combination arguably goes back thousands of years, but the recent spike in the popularity of wood fired pizza has made everything old new again. Customer demand for an authentic wood fired pizza experience has presented a challenge for entertainment venues, c-stores and delis since they generally lack a key piece of equipment: a wood fired oven.

    Now, the type of operation you run and the oven you have are no longer obstacles to serving wood fired favorites. The experts at Alive & Kickin’ Pizza Crust have perfected an innovative solution — Authentic Wood Fired Crusts:


    Not to be confused with “wood-fire flavored” or “wood-fired style” offerings, these genuine wood fired crusts are par-baked in a lava stone deck oven to provide the on-trend appeal customers want, and the business-building benefits you need including:

    • Ease of use. Frozen, refrigerated or used fresh for take ‘n’ bake, these versatile crusts are easy to handle and offer a long shelf life.
    • Final bake in any oven. Nearly any type of professional or residential oven is the perfect one for finishing off these crusts. No special equipment or preparation training required!
    • Improved margins. Customers value quality and are willing to pay more for premium preparations. Plus, using these deluxe pre-made crusts keep food costs fixed for accurate budget forecasting.
    • Competitive differentiation. The unique smokiness, crisp-tender texture and lightly charred finish of Authentic Wood Fired Crusts give your brand a clear distinction from comparable foodservice operations that are without wood fired pizza on their menus.

    The convenience, appeal and business-building potential of Alive & Kickin’ Authentic Wood Fired Crusts make them a must-have for your entertainment venue, c-store, deli, frozen retail or take-n-bake operation. Contact your distributor to request them today.
