What is a Pizza Slab? Everything You Need to know

Are you tired of the same old round pizza crusts and craving a new way to enjoy your favourite food? Letizza Bakery’s pizza slabs could be just what you’re looking for! In this article, we’ll explore everything you need to know about pizza slabs, from the tastiest recipes to make at home to why a Letizza Bakery pizza slab is the best on the market. So, get ready to drool over some delicious pizza creations and discover a twist on this beloved comfort meal. 

What is Considered a Pizza Slab?

A pizza slab is a rectangular-shaped pizza crust that is thicker and denser than traditional round pizza crusts. It’s baked on a sheet pan, which gives it a crispy and chewy texture, and it’s perfect for serving a crowd since it can be cut into slices or squares. Pizza slabs can be topped with any of the same pizza toppings as a traditional round pizza, from mozzarella to pepperoni and everything in between. 

Are Pizza Slabs Healthy? Or Healthier than Normal Pizzas?

The pizza slabs available from Letizza Bakery can certainly be a part of a healthy diet when enjoyed in moderation and with balanced toppings. While they may not necessarily be healthier than normal pizzas, there are ways to increase their nutritional value, such as using lean protein toppings and plenty of vegetables. What’s great about pizza slabs is that they can be cut into smaller portions, making it easier to enjoy a satisfying slice without overindulging. 

Where Can I Get Good Pizza Slabs to Make at Home?

Call us biased, but we think it’s safe to say that Letizza Bakery is your go-to destination for top-notch pizza slabs to make at home. You can find our pizza slab bases at our online store or various independent supermarkets, greengrocers and delis across Australia.

How Big Are Pizza Slabs?

So, how big is a pizza slab? Well, our pizza slabs are available in two different sizes: a half slab and a large slab. The half slab is 13″ x 8″, and the large slab is 18″ x 11″. 

How Many Slices & People Can a Pizza Slab Feed?

If you’re wondering how many slices are in a slab pizza, you should know that this depends on how big each slice is. Having said that, our half-slabs can usually be cut into about 8-10 slices, while our large slabs can be cut into 10-12 slices. As for how many people our pizza slabs can feed, it depends on how hungry the people are and how many slices each person will eat. As a rough estimate, assuming each person will eat 2-3 slices, our half slabs can feed 3-5 people, while our large slabs can feed 5-7. 

Are Letizza Bases Easy to Make?

Like all of our products, there’s no doubt that Letizza’s pizza slab bases are indeed easy to make, whether you’re a budding pizza chef or a newbie cook. If you’ve stored it in the freezer, the first step will be to take your slab of frozen pizza out and let it thaw for a few hours at room temperature. From there, you’ll need to preheat your oven to the temperature recommended on the packaging of the pizza slabs and get your desired toppings ready. After defrosting the slab, place it on a baking sheet, spread tomato paste on top of it, and add your toppings. The final step is to place the pizza in the oven and bake it for approximately 7-10 minutes or until the crust becomes crispy and the cheese has melted.

What are the Best Pizza Slabs to Make?

The beauty of pizza slabs is that they can be enjoyed with any of the same toppings you know and love from a round pizza. Some of our favourite recipes include: 

Traditional Margherita Pizza Slab

Making a traditional Margherita pizza slab is as easy as topping your slab with tomato sauce, sliced fresh mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil leaves. From there, all you’ll need to do is bake it in a preheated oven before slicing it up and serving it hot. 

Meat Lovers Pizza Slab

To make a meat lovers pizza slab, start by preparing your slab base and topping it with tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, and cooked meats of your choice, such as pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and ham. Bake in a preheated oven and you guessed it, slice and serve hot for a hearty pizza.

Nutella Dessert Pizza Slab

Along with, of course, Nutella, your dessert slab pizza can also feature ingredients like sliced banana, strawberries, shopped hazelnuts and desiccated coconut. Once you’ve added your toppings, bake it in a preheated oven and serve hot with powdered sugar on top.
