In response to new research revealing that consumers list pizza as their top meal choice when eating out for dinner and within the top three for lunch[1], Lantmännen Unibake UK has expanded its Schulstad Bakery Solutions brand’s portfolio to include new pizza Dough Pucks.

The Schulstad Bakery Solutions new Dough Pucks line-up offers Italian style pizza bases, which not only give outlets assurance in the quality of the products, but also the confidence to develop a pizza menu to be proud of.

True to brand, the Schulstad Bakery Solutions Dough Pucks are supplied frozen for maximum convenience and minimum waste, the newest additions to the portfolio can help to simplify the pizza making experience for operators both in terms of preparation, and baking, whilst guaranteeing a finished dish that consumers will love.

Available in four sizes – 185g, 270g, 340g and 510g – the versatile Schulstad Bakery Solutions Dough Pucks are ideal for creating anything from 10” thin crust artisan pizzas up to a yard style sharing pizza, enabling venues to cater to an increasing variety of consumer preferences and dining occasions.

Paulina Gorska, Marketing Manager at Lantmännen Unibake UK, comments: “With 91% of consumers listing Italian as their favoured cuisine[2], there is an expectation that Italian inspired dishes appear on menus alongside traditional British cuisine. Offering versatility in abundance, pizza is an obvious choice as it gives consumers more control over their dish by allowing them to customise it to suit their own personal taste.

“As operators increasingly look to simultaneously find ways to rationalise their menu while ensuring they continue to offer customer favourites and increase revenue, Pizza offers a great way to experiment with a takeaway and or delivery service.

“As the industry continues to try and get back on its feet, there is a large element of adaptation that is still required, especially with local lockdowns and national curfews an ever imminent threat. Our recent research shows that consumers are continuing to look for ways to support local businesses, but want to do so while remaining safe and abiding by government guidelines[3]. Offering a takeaway or delivery service is a great way to allow them to do this, whilst still experiencing the great food and service they associate with a particular outlet.

“Available in wholesalers nationwide, our Dough Pucks can help remove some of the kitchen complexities, aiding efficiency and helping to speed up service at a crucial time for the industry. Additionally, the Dough Pucks offer a low build cost vs. selling price, providing operators with an opportunity to maximise profits without compromising on quality.

“Moreover, the quality bases can be customised to any house style. The portfolio allows each outlet to have its own individual pizza identity, confident in the knowledge that the pizza base will deliver a consistently delicious, high quality experience each and every time.”
