The main reasons behind the continuous growth of pizza delivery are the increased population density, the use of smartphones and tablets, lower costs, and of course convenience. But there is a difference between pizza and pizza, we all know that. Is there anything more disappointing than looking forward to steaming hot pizza, opening the box and it’s cold and soggy? Well, yes. But this is still high on the list of disappointments. In this post, we cover what dough makes a pizza ideal for home delivery.
What to keep in mind when choosing pizza dough for home delivery
A good pizza starts with the base. If you are researching what dough would be the best option for home delivery, you can clearly see a pattern. Normally, a thicker dough is recommended for home delivery. It keeps the heat, it’s easy to fold and it’s delicious. You can still opt for a thinner, Italian style crust, but they normally lose the heat faster and have a tendency of getting a bit soggier if your tomato sauce and cheese aren’t up to par. But that doesn’t mean that the Italian style pizza doesn’t work for home delivery! Just keep the transportation distance in mind, and it might be worth investing in delivery boxes that retain the heat well to make sure that your customers are happy and satisfied with their steaming hot pizza.
