Creating World-Famous, Genuine California Pizzas....
We begin with our celebrated crust. In 1959, Straw Hat created the very first California crust pizza. Unlike other regional pizza types, California crust is special, it’s a layered, flaky crust. It’s airy and crispy on the bottom, yet bubbling on top. It has a cracker-like crunch, and is never soggy or limp.
Next, each pizza pie is brushed with Straw Hat’s own secret recipe sauce, made from California ripened fresh-packed tomatoes. It’s a sweet and robust blend of tomatoes, herbs and spices which bursts with California flavor. And it can only be enjoyed at Straw Hat.Then we generously top every pizza with six kinds of Real California Cheese, because six cheeses are six times better than one! Our time-tested combination of naturally aged cheeses was originated by Straw Hat to give each and every pizza the perfect balance of flavor and texture—and delight the most fanatical cheese lovers.
What’s more, only the freshest and finest toppings are allowed on our premises and on our pizzas. Top quality meats and seafood, farm-fresh veggies and select seasonings. We never scrimp when it comes to quality and flavor, and nothing phony-baloney ever goes on a Straw Hat pizza.
And finally, we bake each pizza to our exacting specifications. Our ovens are specially designed and calibrated to achieve pizza perfection; the faultless California Pizza. The crust must be golden brown, flaky and airy, firm on the bottom yet yielding on top. The cheeses must be slightly browned and bubbling, enveloping layers of fresh toppings, cooked just to the precise point.
Straw Hat Facts
