As seen on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” in 2020! Chef Carl “The Cuban” Ruiz was a dear friend and mentor to Red Wagon Pizza’s founder, Peter Campbell, and was the inspiration behind the flavor profile of this beloved pizza, which was created shortly after the two chefs met in 2016 on the set of “Guy’s Grocery Games.” In 2018, Carl and Peter sat together in Red Wagon Pizza and enjoyed the pizza Carl inspired, which is topped with shaved ham, Cuban pulled pork, dill pickles, mayo, and mustard. Sadly, the following year, Carl passed away suddenly. Now everyone can delight in the inspired flavors of Carl the Cuban and honor his legacy.
Red Wagon Pizza was founded by the husband and wife duo of Peter and Jacquie Campbell, who spent years perfecting their pizza recipe. They start with a crust made with locally grown and milled flour made with organic heritage wheat, which is stretched thin and topped with only the highest-quality toppings. They’re par-baked, frozen, and ready to be finished to crisp perfection in your oven.
