ItalCrust vs First Generation Par Baked Frozen Pizza Crusts
Because par baked crusts were never meant to be a "culinary choice", the competition was over price which continued to result in poor substitutes being developed.
ItalCrust is the real thing.
Proofed for twenty four hours, hand-stretched right on
the line and then perfectly baked in our oak wood fired oven, we create a true pizza crust from the finest quality ingredients. The secret is not in how we
make ItalCrust imitate a pizza crust, but in how we take an authentic pizza
crust and par bake it so that it can be frozen and topped later on. ItalCrust will elevate your pizza ingredients into a mind blowing pizza that tastes as good as it smells and looks.
Imitation and Par Baked Pizza Crusts and Naan Breads
Naan breads, while great tasting, will burn before the toppings can be properly cooked and often contain dairy and/or eggs. Many crusts will have a reasonable flavor but will not have the texture of a true pizza crust. And even the best pizza crusts out there, whether scratch made or par baked, lack the quality of ingredients or flavor profile that we achieve by proofing and cooking in an oak fired oven.
