Gluten-free dough, planetary mixers, hot sauces, POS systems, mascots and more


World Champion Gluten-Free Dough

Wild Flour Bakery creates frozen, living, gluten-free dough with the same bake-up, taste, texture and flexibility of an artisan wheat dough. Jeff Smokevitch used Wild Flour’s traditional dough to win the World Pizza Triathlon in Parma last year. It’s the only gluten-free dough that loves high-heat ovens—temperatures from 800° to 1,000°F are no problem! 720-370-3360,


The Italian Hot Sauce

Naples Drizzle has introduced “The Italian Hot Sauce.” Naples’ products are made with 100% extra-virgin olive oil and premium red & chipotle peppers.  And they’re not just infused oils—there’s real chili inside! Boost revenue by selling .8 oz. (24mL) bottles (enough for a 12” to 14” pizza) and save money by reducing expenses on crushed red pepper and hot sauce. 949-340-3787,


Marketing Through Mascots 

Ideal for grand openings, parades, festivals, sporting events and more, Waver mascots from Rasta Imposta greet customers with a big smile and open arms—just like you do. Everyone will remember your giant pizza mascot handing out coupons at the Friday night football game or the Little League game on Saturday. Add your logo to “personalize” your pizza! 856-939-9599,
