Our pizza crusts, doughs, and sauces bring only the highest quality to the art of making pizza. The variety of products, the ability to customize and our strict quality standards are all reasons customers have utmost confidence in Alive & Kickin’.

Why choose a pre-fabricated pizza crust or dough?

  • Consistency. Batch after batch, our quality control guarantees you receive the finest product, all the while giving you the consistency customers expect.
  • Convenience. You save the time and expense of mixing and forming your own dough. Dough balls and pre-made crusts are easy to store and easy to use. They make great pizza without all the hassles of mixing dough and are convenient to use regardless of who’s handling it.
  • Cost-effectiveness. When you factor in the costs of equipment, ingredients, time and labor (not to mention waste), you’ll soon find that pre-made dough products are no more expensive than making your own raw dough. Plus, there’s no mess to clean up!

Product Characteristics

  • Quality ingredients. All our products are created with top-quality ingredients to ensure the best performance, every time.
  • Quality control. Consistent size and weight from a dough ball or pre-made crust diminishes the need for cutting or measuring, reduces waste, and helps control food costs.
  • Quality customization. We provide house recipes and custom products to fit even the most unique needs.

Authentic Wood Fired Crusts

This is it — the real deal: Genuine wood fired pizza crust, made using traditional artisanal methods. Not “wood-fire flavored” or “wood-fired style” — pizza crusts wood fired in a lava stone deck oven.

Our new Authentic Wood Fired Crusts give you the opportunity to offer something special and unique — something to help transform your menu and give you a competitive advantage. These crusts are ideal for any operation that wants to offer an ultra-premium pizza outside the ordinary.


How They’re Made

We start with premium quality ingredients and insist on no additives, preservatives or conditioners. A long fermentation ensures that the dough has a robust flavor and aroma.

Our lava stone deck oven is fired 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, no compromises on authenticity.

When you want the quality that only true artisanal wood-fired pizza dough delivers, accept nothing less than Authentic Wood Fired Crust, exclusively from Alive & Kickin’ Pizza Crust.

Custom Crusts

With Alive & Kickin’ products, you can create something so special customers will return again and again. Whether it’s something customized for a particular flavor profile or a certain texture, we can make it happen.


The way we approach custom projects is “the sky’s the limit.” Our custom crusts can be made for any application or setting and to meet special recipe or nutritional requirements for any kind of business. Customers have come to us wanting to replicate an old family recipe, to create something no one else offers, or with the goal of offering a pizza that will inspire customer loyalty. Please note that minimum quantities do apply to custom products.
