International Pizza Expo 2019: An Exclusive Sneak Peek for Pizza Pros

February 20 2019 by Luke Siedow

Pizza Expo World Pizza GamesWhere will you be March 4-7, 2019? If you’re remotely involved with the pizza industry, you’ll likely be at the world’s largest pizza industry trade show — the 35th annual International Pizza Expo. The Las Vegas Convention Center will be home to the event, where more than 500 exhibitors and 7,000-plus attendees will share the latest in pizza ingredients, technology, equipment, marketing and more.

Alive & Kickin’ has been an exhibitor at the Pizza Expo for over two decades, and our Booth 2755 will once again feature tempting dough and crust innovations — not to mention a custom 16” Basswood pizza peel giveaway courtesy of The Baker’s Board!

What’s Happening at Alive & Kickin’ Booth 2755?

Our brand new Chicago Pastry Crust is sure to capture your imagination — and taste buds — with its rich flavor and unique, pizzeria-quality texture. But that’s not all! Stop by Booth 2755 for a taste of some perennial A&K favorites, including:

  • High Heat Oven Dough Balls formulated to withstand scorching temperatures while maintaining a crisp bottom, fluffy inside, and just the right amount of char.
  • Authentic Wood-Fired Pizza Crusts fired in a lava stone deck oven for a genuine artisanal pizza experience.
  • New York Style Par-Baked Crust featuring the lightly crisp bottom, large rolled edge and just the right chew of a great, traditional pizza slice.
  • Extra Crispy Thin Crust — flaky, delicate, and irresistibly crunchy.
  • Ultra-Premium Alfredo and Ready To Use Pizza Sauces made from authentic Italian recipes that call for the highest-quality ingredients — so good, they challenge any scratch-made sauces.

Insights from the Pizza Industry’s Leading Experts

The Pizza Today® School of Pizza Management has a full slate of workshops scheduled throughout Pizza Expo, taught by industry pros in the know about a wide variety of topics. You’ll want to check these out:

  • All Things Dough: Learn From The Dough Doctor — Tom “Dough Doctor” Lehmann discusses many of the challenges brought to his attention during the past year and also takes audience questions
  • Tinkering With Your Crust — A panel of dough masters explores many of the crust choices and options facing pizza makers
  • Flour Blends — Discover one of the hottest trends in pizza crusts and why you may want to develop a custom recipe around it

There’s so much to see and do at Pizza Expo, we hope it’s already on your calendar and that Alive & Kickin’ Booth 2755 is at the top of your itinerary. We have a lot going on in 2019 and will likely be at a show near you!
