A lot of people tell us how wonderful and tasty our pizza crusts is. They ask why it tastes so good – well, here’s the secret and, it really is no secret at all.
Fresh flour and whole grains
Our grains are milled fresh each day right here using our “Stone Burr Mill”. This ensures all the nutrients are retained in the flour and results in a fresher tasting crust which is better for you. We always use GMO-free chemical-free, high protein flours and grains and make our dough fresh every day by hand.
Our great tasting dough develops from a slow, patient proofing process. Like craft beers and fine wines, time is needed so the fresh yeast can ferment and interact with the grains and honey to impart character to the dough.
Unlike pizza joints that get their dough delivered frozen from a remote commissary, ours is made fresh and hand rolled and tossed right here in our milling/dough room every day – out in the open for everyone to see.
