Why pizza is the perfect offering for lockdown 3.0

The pandemic and three lockdowns (so far) have brought huge challenges – especially for the hospitality industry.

It has been an ever-changing landscape and catering venues have had to quickly react to the unprecedented changes and adapt their services to suit this new way of living.

Increase in takeaway orders

Pubs and restaurants, which thrive upon social settings, have had to convert their premises to a delivery only setting, while takeaways have had to adapt their menu offerings in order to fight off new competition.

And to cut down on costs and food waste, some eateries have chosen to limit their menu, listing only the most popular of items and showcasing the food which they know will be well-received by the general public.

Everyone loves pizza 

There’s one dish that has continued to gain popularity throughout the pandemic and that’s pizza, as Domino’s, Papa John’s and Pizza Hut have all reported an increase in demand worldwide.

Everyone loves pizza and there’s a reason that there are so many pizza restaurants, takeaways and supermarket shelves stocked full with the cheesy delights.

Not only is it a favoured dish for the majority, but it can also make for a profitable business venture.

Simple to set up 

The reason pizza is such a popular menu choice for so many catering businesses is because of the simple kit setup needed to create high-quality pizzas.

Appliance wise, there’s not a lot of equipment needed, just a high-quality fridge and freezer (which most venues already accommodate), dough mixer/prover, roller and pizza oven and you’re good to go!

Other inexpensive preparation supplies include pizza cutters, cutting boards, serving utensils, plates and thermal delivery bags. All of which can be found on the Cater-Bake catalogue.
