COnverting  one  pizza lover  at  a  time.

all natural × hand Crafted with Love

 

A better pizza crust... PERIOD.

 

TOP SHELL LLC / The Pizza Gourmet
We have taken our award winning pizza crusts and offered them to the public! Our dough is delicious, mostly because we only use four ingredients - water, salt, yeast, and unbleached / unbromated flour. All Natural and no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Just the way it should be.

We marinate our dough balls in an olive oil / canola oil blend. After each dough ball is hand-spread to it's desired shape and size, we WOOD GRILL them over 100% Canadian maple lump hard wood at temperatures of 1600-1800 degrees.  Each pizza crust is crafted by human being hands and cooked with care over our custom-made WOOD barbecue grills. 

Be a Chef without all the hard work!!

These pizza crusts take the hard work out of making a grilled pizza.  All you need is an oven or grill, some ingredients, and in 8-12 minutes you can have a gourmet, wood grilled pizza for your family and friends without the hassle (and we let you take all the credit).

Our pizza crusts are available for retail as well as wholesale, so they are not hard to find. Whether you want them for your home or for your business, we've got you covered! Check out our Find a Store page to view our retail locations. Or click on our Order page to get crusts shipped right to your home! If you are interested in buying Wood Grilled Pizza Crusts on a bigger scale (restaurant / other business), feel free to contact us directly or simply check out our 'Distributors' page. If a distributor in your area doesn't carry our crusts, we will do all we can to change that.

A fresh and simple sauce.

 

We are proud to announce a brand new item. Our Premium Tomato Sauce! This sauce has been a part of our pizzeria since day one, so sharing it with the public is long overdue.

We craft our Premium Tomato Sauce using fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes (not from concentrate). The fresh flavor of the tomatoes themselves is so rich that we were reluctant to add anything to the batch. So we kept it simple, adding the perfect amount of garlic and olive oil.

Our sauce is "all purpose". It pairs perfectly with pizza, pasta, meatballs, lasagna, chicken parmigiana & more!


Check out our little pizzeria that started it all. We still own and operate it today out of Providence, Rhode Island!

Also check out our corperate catering company. The menu is largely focused around our Wood Grilled Pizza Crusts!

Because our crusts are fully WOOD GRILLED, all you need to do is (1) Preheat Oven (2) Add Toppings, (3) Cook for 8-12 minutes (or to desired crisp) on 425 degrees -- DIRECTLY ON THE OVEN RACK. It's as easy as that!
