Pan’Artisan Launches New Range of Wood Fired Pizza Bases
Pan’Artisan has added three more Italian wood fired pizza bases to its range in response to the ever-increasing interest by consumers in authentic, premium pizza. The new pizza bases join the Company’s already successful portfolio of dough balls, speciality breads and pizza bases that it has become renowned for.
Two new Napoli wood fired bases are available pre-sauced for the ultimate in convenience and consistency for the operator; there is a 29cm round with tomato sauce, created from the finest Italian tomatoes with oregano, black pepper and high quality Italian olive oil, and a 29cm round bianca with a white sauce that imparts a delicate, creamy cheese flavour. These wood fired bases offer a genuine Neapolitan product, made to an original, regional recipe, with a high liquid to flour ratio that results in an extremely light, bubbly base with a crisp bite.
Another new addition is the Italian Rustic Wood Fired base, which has been stretched to achieve a long, irregular, oval shape – a great choice for a sharing pizza. This rustic style base is offered as a 32cm x 22cm oval and comes topped with a delicious tomato sauce.
According to a 2016 report, * ‘Italian and pizza remain the most numerous and popular of all casual dining cuisines; their combined offer accounting for 45% of all branded restaurants. However, 80% of pizza [and 56% of Italian] offerings originate from pre-2008’ so caterers need to keep refreshing their offer if they are to keep consumer interest in this popular meal type. These hand-stretched, wood fired pizza bases are versatile enough to pair with a wide variety of toppings, will suit any meal occasion and enable the operator to offer a point of difference and a wider choice on menu, while addressing the trend in gourmet pizza with regional provenance.
