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...

So Many Flavors to Choose From!

At Ultimate California Pizza we pride ourselves on serving the perfect pizza that picky people love! But we also put a large amount of our focus on big, bold flavor combinations. While the ingredients and cheeses that go on top of your pizza are a big part of that...

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...

CALI Classics

At Ultimate California Pizza we have some pretty wild pizza creations. We like it that way. We like to be different. We like to create offerings that most people wouldn't think of, but are extremely pleasing to the palate. Pizzas like The River Dale, a pizza that...

Bacon

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

Often overlooked and frequently underappreciated, the tomato is an integral part of a pizza. You can’t have pizza without sauce! Never fear! We are here this month to give the tomato some overdue recognition! Join us as we talk about tomatoes, the best tomatoes to...

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...

FRESH!

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...

A Celebration of Pizza

At Ultimate California Pizza, we view pizza a little differently. It is more than just a meal. Pizza is a way to bring folks together. Pizza is a conversation starter. Pizza can change the atmosphere of a meeting. Pizza tastes good and makes you feel good. Pizza is a...

Gift-Worthy Pizza

With Christmas right around the corner, it has us thinking and seeing gifts and decorations everywhere. Decorations on street lamp poles, houses, stores, and everywhere else we go this time of year. For that matter, we started seeing decorations for sale in September...

Perfect Pizza Picky People Love

If you are anything like me, there are little mouths at your house that are extremely challenging to satisfy. Not necessarily because they are hungry ALL THE TIME, but because what they may love today they will hate tomorrow or even five minutes from now. At Ultimate...

Where Did Pizza Come From?

Pizza came from Italy, right? The answer is yes, mostly. Everyone believes the Italians created, developed, and maybe even perfected what we call pizza. But it isn't that simple. Pizza pulls from many Mediterranean influences and sometimes even gets credited as a...
