At Letizza Bakery, we get a lot of questions about our pizza bases. Below, we’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions to help you better understand our products.
What is the difference between your pizza dough and other pizza doughs?
Our pizza dough is made with a unique blend of flour, water, yeast, and salt. This combination gives our pizza dough a light, airy texture that is perfect for holding toppings. Other pizza doughs often use a variety of different ingredients, which can result in a heavier, denser crust.
Why are your pizza bases the best pizza bases?
There are several reasons why our pizza bases are the best on the market. First, our dough is made with high-quality ingredients that are carefully selected to create the perfect crust. Second, our pizza bases are pre-baked to ensure that they are crispy and delicious. Lastly, we offer a variety of different sizes and shapes to choose from, so you can find the perfect base for your pizza.
I’m having trouble rolling out your pizza dough. What should I do?
If you’re having trouble rolling out our pizza dough, we recommend adding a bit more flour to your work surface. Once you’ve added more flour, continue to roll out the dough until it is thin and even. If you find that the dough is still sticking to your rolling pin or countertop, add more flour until the dough is easy to work with.
