LOS ANGELES-– Caroline D’Amore, owner and executive chef of Los Angeles-based family restaurant, D’Amore’s Pizza, launches Pizza Girl: a line of USDA certified-organic, locally-sourced and ethically-bottled Marinara, Puttanesca, and Vodka sauces. Pizza Girl, Caroline’s childhood nickname which has become her persona to this day, seeks to bring the freshest, healthiest, and most delicious pasta sauces to households nationwide for friends and families to enjoy together.
Pizza Girl is excited to announce all three sauces are now available at all the Bristol Farms locations. “I grew up shopping at Bristol Farms, so it’s a dream come true to be on the shelves,” said Caroline D’Amore, Founder of Pizza Girl. D’Amore will be on-site at the Bristol Farms in West Hollywood on July 11th and July 13th, giving out samples and sharing her story and recipes. Pizza Girl can also be purchased online at www.pizzagirl.com, as well as at all D’Amore’s Pizza locations, in 24 oz. glass jars for $9.99 each.
Pizza Girl is already the buzziest, flavor and health-forward sauce in Hollywood following a fabulous launch party at Elyx House hosted by Paris Jackson. Guests, including Ashlee Simpson, Evan and Chudney Ross, and Emile Hirsch dined under the stars family style on dishes curated by Caroline featuring all three organic pasta sauces, including Baked Ziti, Spaghetti Squash Casserole, Veggie Penne with Pizza Girl Vodka Sauce, and more. These recipes can be found at Pizzagirl.com for your own dinner party enjoyment.
“Coming from the D’Amore’s Pizza Family, it was always a dream of ours to have an at home product line for everyone across the country to enjoy,” said D’Amore. “Essentially, the pizza business is in my DNA, and I am proud to carry on the tradition through my own interpretation, keeping my great grandmother’s recipes alive, following in my dad’s entrepreneurial footsteps, and adding my own modern touch.”
The family-derived recipes originated with D’Amore’s great grandmother, “Big Mumma,” in Italy, and have been perfected over time in California using only local, USDA certified organic ingredients sourced with integrity. Pizza Girl Marinara Sauce is fresh and flavorful, using onion, garlic, olive oil, diced tomato, sea salt, dried basil and dried oregano. Pizza Girl Vodka Sauce is the perfect blend of creamy texture and Italian herbs, with fresh cream, olive oil, garlic, onion, diced tomatoes, vodka flavor, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, parmesan Romano cheese blend, and dried basil. Pizza Girl Puttanesca Sauce is perfect when you are craving something rich and savory, with Kalamata olives, capers, onion, garlic, olive oil, diced tomato, red pepper flakes, black pepper, sea salt, and dried basil.
Seeking to deliver natural, delicious, and healthy pasta sauces to consumers nationwide, Pizza Girl has taken the extra step to protect our environment. “After seeing the amount of plastic used in this industry, from packaging to the use of plastic jars, we see it as our responsibility to be as environmentally conscious as possible,” said D’Amore. Pizza Girl’s sauces are bottled in glass jars, and they have gone the extra mile by designing their own in house shipping boxes that make using bubble wrap and plastic obsolete. “Pizza Girl is for families to enjoy together,” D’Amore adds. “We need to ensure our planet is healthy so that future generations can continue to enjoy the earth’s natural bounty.”
With Pizza Girl, D’Amore continues to grow her family’s legacy, having already opened her own successful D’Amore’s Pizza restaurant location in West Hollywood with her husband, musician Bobby Alt; proving that with hard-work, passion, and a whole lot of love, anything can happen. “I want to show my daughter women can do anything they set their mind to with dedication and a true vision”. Pizza Girl has been a family dream for years and with Caroline D’Amore at the helm as CEO the company is moving at an extremely fast and carefully planned pace. Caroline’s vision for Pizza Girl will continue to grow with new product rollouts expected in the near future.
Being a socially-conscious company with integrity is the backbone of Pizza Girl, which is why Pizza Girl will be donating a portion of proceeds from every jar sold to Smile Train.
