Pizza is an extremely popular dish in Canada, with roughly 14% of dinnertime meals alone consisting of the Italian pie. Among the millions of people who enjoy pizza, there is a certain knowledge that restaurant slices have a unique, superior taste compared to what can be created at home. The reason behind these succulent differences lies in how pizzas are prepared and the different types of ingredients are used.
One of the most noticeable differences between homemade and restaurant pizza is the crust. Restaurant crusts are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and add a delicious fluffiness to the meal. Homemade crusts are usually thicker or chewier or even excessively crunchy by comparison. The reason for this difference lies within both the dough used and the way it is prepared. Restaurant dough is given more time to ferment and rise—sometimes overnight—which releases more of the flavour and creates a texture and taste that simple hour-rise dough can’t reproduce. Restaurant dough is also better hydrated, furthering the flavour.
Although every restaurant has their preferred type of dough, MVR Cash & Carry offers Mimi frozen pizza dough and Pinsa Romana pizza dough balls for businesses that need quick access to professional-quality dough. We also offer big and small dough roller dockers from Winco so you can spread out your dough evenly and effortlessly.
A great deal of refinement goes into the sauce recipes that restaurants use. Everything has been studied and calculated to produce a sauce that perfectly complements the other ingredients and adds the right amount of flavour. This sort of consideration is rarely seen in homemade pizza and sometimes substitutions are made—like using spaghetti sauce instead.
Not all restaurant pizzas require tailor-made formulations, though. A quality brand can suit your needs and those of your customers as it can naturally complement your other ingredients. Give something like Full Red’s fully prepared pizza sauce a try, which is available on our shelves, and see for yourself.
The secret to restaurant pizza toppings is that there is no secret. Restaurants simply use quality ingredients in reasonable amounts so the palate isn’t overwhelmed. Home pizzas suffer because people don’t always get ideal ingredients or arrange them properly, leading to clumpy slices or pizza that sags under its own weight.
Restaurants can make use of quality-brand ingredients like Daniels roasted red pepper strips and black sliced olives, Valli sun-dried tomatoes, Maoli pizza-cut pineapple slices, Rea pepperoni, Unico flat anchovy fillets, and AAA feta cheese pail.
