Winter just seems to keep coming for a big chunk of the country. It’s exhausting. While we have been spared the snow and extreme cold along the southeast coast, we sure are tired of the rain. But there is a silver lining right around the corner. Spring will be here before you know it and that means FRESH. Spring brings a feeling of renewal. It means new life and new opportunity. Spring can feel like a new beginning. But spring also means an opportunity to get more fresh ingredients to enjoy. At Ultimate California Pizza, we pride ourselves on using fresh ingredients to build every pizza that leaves our kitchen.
We are very fortunate to be able to make our own Italian White and Whole Wheat pizza dough in-house. Unlike many chain restaurants that stock frozen crusts and thaw them when needed, Ultimate California Pizza makes our dough fresh in the house. If you listen closely when you are sitting in the dining room, you can sometimes hear the mixer churning the dough. We then, portion out the dough and let it rise until it is ready to be rolled out and decorated for you.
But that is just the start! Of course, the crust is critical since it is the base of the pizza, but you cannot overlook toppings. The toppings are the easiest part to see. The sauce and the crust get to hide behind the toppings. The toppings are the shining star of pizza. They stand out, they catch your eye and the toppings are the real reason you get excited about eating pizza!
For that reason, we feel we must use the freshest ingredients we can gather. When we decorate your pizza, it is essential to consider the visual appeal, because let’s be honest, no one wants to eat ugly food, but it is way more important that your food tastes amazing! With so many fresh options for you to choose between! Some of your options are artichoke hearts, dates, green peppers, red peppers, yellow onions, tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms, spinach, minced garlic, chopped basil, sweet golden pineapple, and shredded coconut.
The possibilities are limitless, but we understand if the number of ingredients can make coming up with your own combinations can be quite daunting. Have no fear, we have some of our own Gnarly Creations ready for you! These unique combinations come featured on our Homemade Italian White crust. Our most popular offering is “The Big Kahuna”. This mouthwatering offering features fresh mushrooms, green peppers, yellow onions, black olives, and tomatoes all combined with pepperoni, smoked ham, ground beef, Italian sausage, and mild pork sausage. This pizza will blow your mind!
Maybe you wanted to choose our Homemade Whole Wheat crust instead? Check out our Wicked Wheat Pizzas! The “Santa Cruz” will please any palate willing to try something new! We start with a perfect Homemade Whole Wheat crust topped with extra virgin olive oil and then dressed with mozzarella and feta cheeses, fresh spinach, black olives, tomatoes, red onions, and artichoke hearts. A hearty pizza for anyone looking to avoid the heavier meats.
Still too complicated? Don’t fret, take a look at our Cali Classics instead. This section features simpler options for a less complex pizza. Think “Pepperoni & Sausage”…..but if you want fresh veggies, we suggest the “Pepperoni & Mushroom”!
The fact is, you can find fresh ingredients in every section of our menu. So don’t let that winter weather get you down. Fresh is almost here. Spring is right around the corner, but fresh pizza with fresh ingredients can be made for you right now. Ultimate California Pizza is just a call or a click away!
