Why is Pizza Round?

As I sit here staring at a very cool-looking surfboard hanging on the wall next to some elegant black and white photos, I can't help but wonder why this delicious Santa Cruz pizza is round. I know it isn't the main concern. Most are enthralled by the Garlic Herb Extra...

Cheddar Cheese

Cheddar cheese isn't the type of cheese one usually thinks about when you think about pizza. Instead, most people immediately think about mozzarella. That gooey, stringy, creamy, and fresh white cheese is typically used on pizza. So why are we writing a blog on...

Can Pizza Be Healthy?

It's that time of year.  New Year's Resolutions, diets, weight loss goals, bucket lists, etc., are clogging up all of our social feeds.  You can't avoid it.  There is something about the new year that screams, "it's time to remake myself." How many times have you...

How is Cheese Made?

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that cheese is a critical ingredient at Ultimate California Pizza.  There are eight different types of cheese on our menu and it finds its way onto 88% of our menu items. Sometimes you will even find more than one type of cheese on an...

BBQ? On Pizza?

I spend a large amount of time on the internet. It is what I do. I monitor multiple Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google accounts. It is an amazing career centered on helping people find their way to our food. It truly doesn’t get any better than this. I am a very...

Nutritious, cognitively beneficial, environmentally friendly, and just downright delicious. Bacon has become a staple in the American diet to the tune of FIVE BILLION DOLLARS! Seems like everywhere you look, bacon has become a sought-after option. It has been popular...

Tomato

Pineapple. Yes, it Belongs!

“Sit down. We need to talk.” “You are so weird.” “Your test results are in.” For many, sentences like these cause an extreme level of anxiety. There is, however, one phrase that seems to induce such a high level of apprehension that societies have been ruined by the...

Top Toppings

I accidentally stumbled across an article from USA Today that was put out in September 2020 about the Top 10 commonly ordered pizza toppings people request and it got me thinking, “are our customers ordering the same things? The USA Today article echoed several...

Mushrooms!

Mushrooms on a pizza? Absolutely. While they are a more controversial topping than pepperoni or sausage, they are certainly not nearly as hated as pineapple or anchovies. Still, the type of mushroom you use can make all the difference in the overall taste of the...

Let’s Talk Salads

Spring has sprung and just as we said in last month's blog it's time for FRESH!  While we talked about how we use fresh toppings like mushrooms, green and red peppers, onions, and spinach. We talked last month about how we make our crusts fresh in-house. Last month we...
