ItalCrust Preparation Guidelines

  •  Store ItalCrust frozen (defrosted crusts can be kept refrigerated for 2-3 days in the original bag).
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees (oven temps above 425 are all possible with some modified procedures).
  • Thaw crust first (about 10 min at room temp, or 4 hours in a refrigerator).
  • Top the crust as desired.  (We recommend using less sauce and cheese at first).
  • Bake directly on the rack ( do not use a  pan or screen except in very hot ovens over 550 degrees).
  • Rotate when one edge is browned to desired cook level.
  • Finish until all edges are brown.

ItalCrust is made from fresh pizza dough, so it may take a few tries to get it right, especially when changing from dough or an industrial par-baked pizza crust.   Feel free to email us with questions at

ItaCrust cooks in all oven types including conventional, convection, combi, conveyor/impinger, deck oven and even wood fired ovens.

Any oven that can bake pizza can bake an ItalCrust pizza.
