Where 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:
- Beer-infused Dough Balls featuring a unique, subtle flavor that is more nuanced than doughs that include only water and oil.
- 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.
