Our Facilities

Rustica’s pizza manufacturing establishment has been designed to render flexible production processes that maximize our efficiency in producing new products that meet market demands. Our state-of-the-art facility is unlike any other in North America. We have designed a custom line that begins with the dough and ends with the packaging of our pizzas and focaccias.

Our unparalleled methods of manufacturing the pizza dough is achieved by our unique process of letting the dough rest naturally. It mimics expert pizzaiolos in the kneading and rising processes in all crust productions. We use key ingredients such as unbleached flour, real yeast and olive oil that allow the dough to develop slowly before it is shaped.  The resting time for the dough allows for the development of the optimal cell structure to render quality products that are preferred by our customers.

We measure our products against the highest industry standards to ensure that every aspect of a product exceeds our customers’ highest expectations.
