How to Toss The Dough

One of the things we hear a lot is that our customers have tried making pizza at home but, have trouble getting the dough to come out round and consistent. The first thing you need it good pizza dough, if you have a mixer, you can use make your dough at home. If you want to buy dough, go to your favorite pizzeria and humbly ask to buy some of their delicious dough, that is what we used to do back in college.

Have no fear, stretching pizza dough just takes practice, you probably won’t get it right on the first try, don’t give up! We worked with one of our friend Andy and helped him make his own pizza, check out the video from 2019.

Stretching the pizza dough is all about confidence, if you’ve ever seen a child as they learn to stand up and walk, you’ll learn that it takes many tries to get it right. Once you learn the skills of making pizza, you’ll be a hit at your next pizza party!

Pizza Visitor from Brooklyn

Today we had the honor of serving fresh wood fired pizza for a large Italian family. Mario Taorima flew in from Brooklyn, New York just for the party and said “Thanks Pacific Pizza, this was the best wood fired pizza…outside of Brooklyn of course”.

Mario testing out our wood fired oven


Our guests requested a pizza marinara with red sauce, anchovies and capers with some onions added. We’d never made pizzas with anchovies but, who were we to argue with this large Italian family who had come together to celebrate on a warm Sunday in beautiful San Diego. The pizza marinara was a big hit and the family loved the way they cooked in the wood fired oven.

We love working with our customers to create the special experience they want and we often learn something new and get to meet some amazing people. Thanks to Thomas and his whole family for inviting us to join them for their family party.
