Jack Bertram founded Stuft Pizza in 1976 by opening a small take-out restaurant in Cerritos, California. How do we explain this success? Simply: our product. More than 33 years ago, Jack began experim...enting with pizza dough, attempting to come up with a recipe for Stuft Pizza that would satisfy his discerning palette. To bake our crust, we use ovens similar to those found in the world’s finest bakeries: rotating, Ferris-wheel type ovens which guarantee an even bake throughout the body of the pizza. Our sauce is an undisclosed recipe: a strong blend of zesty herbs and spices. The finest, low-fat cheeses, handpicked vegetables and highest quality meats complete the “pie” that is Stuft Pizza.
Today, Junior Freitas and Jose Raposo carry on the tradition of maintaining the Stuft Pizza reputation. With over 50 years of experience between the two owners, they have built a reputation of quality, trust, and family like atmosphere. But don’t take it from us, try it yourself and see!
