  • Pizza is something we’re proud of, and something that sparks passion and joy in those enjoying it. It’s a food that bridges the generational gap, and pleases children and adults. It can be made in many different ways, using many different methods and recipes. Once you sink your bite into that perfect piece of pizza, you will quickly know that it’s a match made in heaven. That’s why we love our newest manufacturer that is joining the Pro-Pacific family: Marra Forni.

  • What is pizzaiolo pizza?

    Pizza done the pizzaiolo way is often referred to as Neapolitan-style pizza. Neapolitan style pizza has a very thin crust, but the edges puff up considerably, and provides for a light and delicious crust that has more air bubbles and pockets compared to other styles. Neapolitan style pizza is popular in the western part of the United States, with large chains like California Pizza Kitchen expanding the reach and showcasing this style of pizza. This style of pizza also typically allows more creativity with toppings, aside from the regular pepperoni. Margherita style or BBQ chicken pizza is just the beginning in a pizzaiolo style pizza.
