Akos and Erika are husband and wife; they are the owners and only operators of A's Pizza.

Over fifteen years of pizza-making experience, combined with the use of one of the world's finest pizza flours from Naples, Italy, creates an extremely light pizza crust. A's Pizza Truck is the only pizza business that uses only hand-kneaded dough (made entirely from scratch by Akos himself). He also uses a very high temperature stone oven and only fresh ingredients. He does not use a rolling pin or a pizza screen, making sure that his pizza crust is airy and fluffy.
Every Friday (unless advertised otherwise) at NewRoads Mazda Dealership from 11:30am
A sourdough starter is a culture of yeasts and bacteria. It is created when a mixture of flour and water slowly starts to ferment naturally, thanks to the wild yeast that is everywhere around us. As a result, we get a pungent, gloppy brew that will act as a natural substitution for the store-bought baker’s yeast in our pizza or bread dough. It is also referred to as “mother yeast”.
The bacteria culture in sourdough starter is connected to great and natural things in life: cheese, beer, bread. These are all fermented naturally by the same bacteria cultures as you make your sourdough bread with.
The bacteria culture in sourdough starter provides a much thorough flour fermentation comparing to the work of regular baker's yeast. The result of this lengthier fermentation is that sourdough bread has a lower glycemic index that helps maintaining blood sugar level, which is crucial when someone is dealing with diabetes. A growing number of studies show that those who eat sourdough bread has lower blood sugar and insulin levels than those who eat breads fermented with baker's yeast.
OUR DEHYDRATED SOURDOUGH STARTER CAN BE ORDERED FROM OUR ETSY STORE. BOTH REGULAR AND GLUTEN FREE VERSIONS ARE AVAILABLE!

REACTIVATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR OUR DEHYDRATED SOURDOUGH STARTER:
It is basically the world’s oldest form of dough fermentation. Sourdough is a type of bread/pizza crust that is naturally leavened by an agent called sourdough starter instead of using commercial baking yeast. In traditional sourdough recipes, you’ll find four ingredients: sourdough starter, water, salt and flour. It’s about as natural as you get when it comes to bread. The lactic acid content of the sourdough starter gives sourdough bread its distinctive flavour.
We have a special of the week pizza, we run that pizza for a week (check our photos). We post our special of the week on our social media sites. From the moment the menu (special of the week) is up, whole pizza orders start coming in. By Monday night/Tuesday morning we are 95% full. That is why it is very important to send your orders as soon as possible.
We have 1 pizza truck day for the public: Friday.
We ONLY make whole pizzas by orders. It is very rare when we can serve walk-ins at our dinner services.
We are a food truck, we do NOT deliver, pick up only.
You can always customize your order with toppings you see on our menu. You can also order half & half pizzas.
Friday dinner is always at the NewRoads Mazda Dealership Newmarket, ON.
You can place your order by social media message or comment,
PLEASE do not send your order by email. Your order might get lost. Most of our orders are coming through our social media accounts. If you don't use social media, then you can TEXT YOUR ORDER TO 647-622-9062, however we prefer social media messages because we might not see your text messages in time.
We are introducing the first gluten free, sourdough pizza in the area, that offers all the health benefits of a naturally leaven dough and a fantastic flavour that is not normally associated with gluten free products.
We have created our very own and unique, fully homemade (not frozen!!!) gluten free crust with only a few ingredients, without added eggs or dairy, and NO SUGAR.
We've been working very hard for months to create the perfect gluten free version of our signature Italian pizza crust, so people with gluten sensitivity can enjoy A's Pizza as well.
Let us show you that a gluten free pizza can have a very pleasant texture and flavour so you don't have to settle with cardboard crusts anymore.
DISCLAIMER: WE ARE NOT A CERTIFIED GLUTEN FREE KITCHEN, THEREFORE OUR GLUTEN FREE PIZZAS ARE NOT FOR CELIAC INDIVIDUALS! GLUTEN CONTAMINATION MAY OCCUR!
What is Sourdough?
Sourdough is an old form of bread leavening. It relies on a mix of wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria that are naturally present in flour, rather than baker's yeast, to leaven the dough.
Sourdough's basic nutrition profile resembles that of other breads, but it has a few special properties that make it more nutritious.It contains higher levels of folate and antioxidants than other breads. Also, its lower phytate levels allow your body to absorb the nutrients it contains more easily.
Sourdough bread has its prebiotic- and probiotic-like properties may help improve digestion, its fermentation produces changes in the bread that may allow for better blood sugar control and improved insulin sensitivity.
How can you order A's gluten free pizza (PICK UP ONLY)?
The gluten free pizzas will be 12” in size and sold as whole pizzas and for preorders only! All orders have to be placed by WEDNESDAY night for pickup on Friday. Making the gluten free crusts is a much lengthier process, so the Wednesday night deadline ensures that all orders will be made fresh from scratch every week. You will see our gluten free menu when you scroll down.
There are 2 buying options for the gluten free pizzas:
1. We partially bake your gluten free pizza. In this case you have to finish baking your pizza in your oven at home, but this is the way to minimize the chance of any gluten contamination.
2. You can order your gluten free pizza fully baked. In this case we bake your pizza in the truck’s oven, however your pizza will be subjected to the gluten pieces in the oven, carrying a higher chance for gluten contamination.
Please state which option you'd want when you place your order.
Regardless of choosing PARTIALLY BAKED or FULLY BAKED pizzas, there won’t be any price difference.

Q.: What are the benefits of a parbaked pizza?
A.: The original concept of the parbaked pizza is that you can enjoy a freshly baked A’s pizza on a day when we are not open for business, or the circumstances just doesn't allow you to come to the truck for a ready-to-eat one, or you travel farther with the pizza and you are looking for an even fresher alternative than reheating the fully baked pizza (traveling to cottage, visiting a friend, etc.). We give you the parbaked pizza cold, so you can finish it in your oven with only 10-15 minutes baking. Basically you only have to melt the cheese on it, and by this time the toppings get cooked to the perfect level. If you want to enjoy our parbaked pizza on another day, it can be kept in your fridge for another 2-3 days before finishing it off in your oven. If you decide to enjoy the pizza later than 2-3 days, you can freeze it, then you can bake it from frozen state.
Q.: “Do they come out as well as when you guys make them?”
A.: Our partially baked pizza is the second best thing. Obviously it won’t be exactly the same as the freshly baked pizza coming out of the truck’s oven, but it will be very close. The key is that we do the heavy lifting for you and bake the crust in our oven 90% done. That’s the crucial part you can’t replicate in your household oven. That’s why we do it for you.
Q.: How to place an order for parbaked pizza?
A.: Ordering deadline for parbaked pizzas is Thursday 7pm (for Friday pick up). You can place your order the same way as you do when you order any fully baked pizza: Facebook message/comment, Instagram message/comment, text or 647-622-9062. The following information are required in the order message:
We make our parbaked pizzas from scratch before we start to make the fully baked pizzas, so you always get FRESH parbaked pizzas from us. Parbaked pizzas take more time to make and we can't take unlimited parbaked orders. When we reach our maximum capacity, we can't take more orders.
Q.: Do we have to schedule a pick up time for parbaked pizzas?
A.: No, you just have to come to the truck
Q.: What are the baking instructions for parbaked pizzas?
A.: 1. Preheat your oven to the highest temperature possible.
2. Slide the pizza onto a baking tray.
3. Bake it for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is nicely melted (depending on the oven’s performance)
4. For a crispier top you can switch your oven to broil for 1-2 minutes (keep your eyes on it!!
We use the same, signature pizza dough that you are used to when you enjoy A's Pizza's famous fully baked pizzas, but we bake the crust up to 90% ready (hence the name partially baked pizza, or parbaked in short). We use the same, very high temperature oven to bake the crust of your pizza to ensure a light and airy texture, even though the final stage of the baking process is done in your home oven in only 15-20 minutes. You can choose any pizza from our weekly menu as partially baked.
