What makes it Naked?

Naked means natural. Our pizza is simply an honest diversity of all-natural, whole food ingredients that taste better and are better for you. Enjoy it, share it, but for the love of mozzarella, tell us EXACTLY what you think—by emailing info@nakedpizza.biz or posting for all to see on Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare or Yelp.

Ten grains in the crust? Really?

Our crust is made from an Ancestral Blend® of 10 grains plus prebiotic agave fiber and probiotics (healthful bacteria like the ones found in yogurt for balance and digestive health) bound by water and made by hand. The grains we use include oats, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, teff, spelt, tapioca, and two kinds of wheat. This diversity of grains, fiber and probiotics are the main reason for that satisfying feeling after eating Naked Pizza, contributing a slow, sustained release of energy without the crash from eating other single grain, highly processed pizzas.

What’s a probiotic?

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria cultures that live in your digestive system that help optimize nutrition and promote balance and digestive health. You may have heard about probiotics in yogurt. Ours are the same, except able to naturally survive the baking process. That’s an added benefit because unlike most of the probiotics in yogurt, ours survive stomach acid to reach the lower digestive system, which is precisely where they need to be.

What’s prebiotic agave fiber? Will I wake up with a bengal tiger in my bed the next morning?

A prebiotic is essentially fiber, food for the health-giving bacteria (probiotics) in your gut. Ours is one of highest quality fibers available, extracted from the ancient blue agave plant, adding a slight touch of sweet without any sugar crash. “Fun Fact: Yes, the blue agave that produces our fiber is the same plant used to make tequila, but through an entirely different process of cooking and fermentation—like the difference between raisins and Merlot”.

What’s the story on the natural, whole food ingredients?

Better taste, better for you. Our tomato sauce is all-natural—nicely spiced and herbed, with no added sugar or citric acid. Our cheese is 100% natural. Our vegetables are all-natural, no additives. Our meats are pork, chicken and beef—free of growth hormones and antibiotics. Full of love.

Wait, did you just say that other pizzas are a “big donut slathered with tomato sauce?”

Yep. Most of other guys’ highly processed pies feature a crust made from a single grain, stripped of its nutrition to make a white flour. To your body, these highly processed carbs are the same as a 32-ounce Big Gulp Dr. Pepper, resulting in a flood of insulin to your system which makes for all kinds of nasty business. Conversely, our pizza (your pizza too) is more slowly digested, so less insulin dump, more optimizing of nutrition, a satisfying feeling without the crash and icky feeling you get post other guys’ ‘za. Plus it burns more calories because it digests slowly. Other pizzas also typically add sugar to the dough and sauce, extend the cheese by cutting it with oil, and use butter and/or hydrogenated oils. Umm, not good.

So is Naked a diet pizza?

No. While we have fewer calories by comparison, our pizzas are made to be part of your active lifestyle. Real, delicious food that’s also good for you. We don’t add sugar, high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oil because it tastes better without that junk masking the whole food ingredients. All of our nutritional information is listed on our website. See our Naked Nutrition Guide.

What’s with all the social media?

LOL. It’s an honest, immediate, transparent way to communicate. Social media is about authentic dialogue—between you and us and you and your friends. Full frontal, no secrets. For too long, fast food companies have talked about “secret” ingredients that we’ve come to find out are making people less healthy. We think that’s crummy so we use social media to help change it. Sometimes we get a little hot, other times political, frequently a touch sarcastic just to keep it light. The deal is that you’ll know we’re real people with an opinion and we expect the same of you. Give it to us straight, we’ll do the same—promise, friendo.

So you’re on a mission?

Don’t laugh—we intend to launch the world’s largest grassroots health movement. We’ll do that by making a delicious, affordable, all-natural pizza and delivering it to your home hot in about 25 minutes. Every time. Still round, still comes in a square box. But also, Naked Pizza is an honest place on the landscape in a 50 billion dollar pizza industry. We’re simply pointing out that all that money spent on pizza and invested in building stores, hiring people, sourcing ingredients, etc., along with the millions of farmers and suppliers and regulators and Oprahs involved along the way— can be mobilized in a better way. To help instead of harm. Really, why not?
