Dough balls, crusts, and sauces
to meet your needs

The passionate pizza people at Alive & Kickin’ are absolutely obsessed with quality — because we know that it’s the quality of your pies that determines the success of your operation. We offer a variety of crusts (and sauces!), and we’re even happy to customize a crust or dough ball to your specifications, allowing you to have all the benefits of pre-made with the signature potential of a crust made exclusively for you.

Beyond our laser-focus on delicious taste and texture, there are other important reasons to partner with Alive & Kickin’:

  • Consistency. We’re pretty controlling when it comes to quality. You can count on us to deliver the same flavor, texture and performance in every case, every order, every day.
  • Convenience. Do you know how much time and effort you’ll save by taking advantage of pre-made crusts and dough balls? (We don’t either...but it’s a lot. And you can find out for yourself using our handy calculator).
  • Cost-effectiveness. Add up the costs of equipment, ingredients, time and labor (not to mention waste) and you’ll see that pre-made dough products are no more expensive than making your own dough.

Authentic Wood-Fired Crusts

All it takes is a final bake — in any oven!

This is it — the real deal...genuine wood fired pizza crusts, made using traditional artisanal methods. Not “wood-fire flavored” or “wood-fired style” but pizza crusts that we wood fire in our lava stone deck oven. All you have to do is add toppings and final bake it in any oven! Our Authentic Wood Fired Crusts are that “something special” you’ve been looking for to make your offerings stand out from the competition!

How They're Made

We start with premium quality ingredients — no additives, preservatives or conditioners. A long fermentation ensures that the dough has a robust flavor and aroma. Then we fire up our lava stone deck oven with real wood, lending a subtle hint of smoke flavor unique to this type of crust. Direct heat creates natural bubbling and outstanding texture and structure. No shortcuts, and no compromises on authenticity.

  • Wide variety of weights and rim styles
  • Dozens of proven recipes in-house, with custom recipes possible
  • Freezer-to-oven convenience — no proofing or resting necessary
