A Canvas Original…
In 1996, the Ultra Thin Pizza Shells Company was formed to showcase this great tasting product and created the demand in foodservice for a high-quality, consistent, and original culinary canvas. The Ultra Thin Pizza Shell eliminated the hassles of scratch preparations, costly equipment, additional kitchen space, labor, and training, which have even more relevance to foodservice operations today.
Each par-baked shell bakes to a crispy bottom, holds exceptionally well and can be prepared in all types of cooking equipment. Ultra Thin Pizza Shells are available in different sizes ranging from 7” to 16” and are manufactured in their state-of-the-art facility located in Garden City Park, New York. We serve all foodservice operators including national chains and the single location family restaurant.
In everything we create, quality is the main ingredient; therefore, we maintain a Food & Drug Administration’s HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) compliant facility.
NSF-Cook & Thurber Compliant…
As part of our ongoing commitment to Food Quality, Food Safety and Plant Integrity, we are audited annually by NSF-Cook & Thurber. NSF-Cook & Thurber is the leading provider of comprehensive food safety services for the food, beverage, animal feed, and packaging industries.
Corporate and Social Responsibility
Ultra Thin Pizza Shells & Flatbreads recognizes its responsibility to operate in a sustainable manner that ensures the long term viability of the natural resources utilized for the production of our products and the protection of the environment within which we operate. To that end, we have implemented our sustainability program in our operations. To ensure we maximize our full potential, we have contracted with companies to cart away, re-use, and recycle our dough scraps and cardboard. We continuously search for ways to reduce our footprint in electricity and waste.
Ultra Thin strives for a balance between economic and environmental sustainability. All species and habitats play an important role in maintaining healthy ecosystems. Ultra Thin supports projects that contribute to the protection of biodiversity which we recognize as an essential component of responsible environmental and natural resource management. We combine shipping of products through re-distribution, eliminating about 90% of our LTL traffic. We believe that conservation and protection is fundamental to both quality of life and economic well-being, both now and in the future. We look to create products that are natural, and contain no hazards to man or nature.
