Why a part-baked pizza base is a great choice when cooking in a domestic oven

We all love a good restaurant quality pizza, but what is the best way to make your own version at home in your domestic oven?


Our part-baked pizza bases have several benefits that make them perfect for homemade pizza fanatics!


Firstly, we know that making your own dough (or even trying our Sourdough dough balls) is one option for having great pizza at home. However, domestic ovens don’t get as hot as a pizza oven which often results in fresh dough not being cooked particularly well. The benefit of part-baked bases is that they have been pre-cooked in a pizza oven and therefore have the taste and texture already baked into them. They simply require reheating!


Another reason to pick part-baked bases over dough balls is an obvious but very important one… convenience. They can be sauced and topped within a few minutes, meaning you could have yourself a fully baked, restaurant quality pizza in less than 10 minutes, from frozen or chilled. Now if that doesn't put pizza as a top contender for mid week, easy meals, then we don’t know what does!


One thing we love about part-baked bases is that they are a blank canvas to express yourself with. You can be creative with your toppings and try new things, without the hassle of using a dough ball. Ever wanted to try something a bit different on your pizza but worried about spending all that time making it and getting it wrong? Part baked bases can give you the confidence you need to get the Nutella out at 9pm for a late night snack and make that dessert pizza you’ve been eyeing up… 


What often comes to mind when we think about homemade food is the mess. We’ve all been there. You commit yourself to making a delicious pizza from scratch and before you know it there is flour on every surface of the kitchen, the kids, your forehead and even the dog. The great thing about part-baked bases is that they don’t make a mess of your kitchen and don’t need flouring! Need we say more? The only thing better than a delicious homemade pizza is one that comes with a clean kitchen. 


You know those days where you feel like you haven’t had a second to yourself? Gone are the days where your only option is to pop past a drive through or grab a sub-par ready meal on the way home just so you can eat something. You deserve better than that! And part-baked bases are your new hero on days like this. They can be kept in the freezer for months and make an easy ‘lifesaver’ meal. So save yourself from the dreaded stodgy microwave lasagne and stock up on bases for a rainy day. 


Finally, the cherry on top of all of these reasons to go for a part-baked base, is that they are fermented for 48 hours which develops great flavour and makes them easy to digest. That’s what gives them that “restaurant quality” edge!


So, next time you’re thinking about how to create an easy, tasty pizza at home, try our part-baked bases. We promise you won’t regret it.
