Like many small businesses, Sassafras started out of the home. Back in 1977, the company was born with the introduction of a Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza Kit. This kit was the first one for pizza marketed directly to the consumer. Before that time, if one made pizza at home, they had to use a cake pan! This humble product sowed the seeds for what would become a company dedicated to the development of innovative, well-designed products for the home, with an emphasis on kids.
Currently Sassafras has the best selection of kids baking products on the market. This category began with the Kids Pizza Making Kit. Now, Sassafras offers a wide range of baking kits as well as softgoods, tool kits and a silicone baking kit. All of their food products are gourmet-quality and U.S. made with an emphasis on great taste and ease of preparation. They believe strongly that there is a resurgence in home cooking and kids are leading the way!
