Why go with the common-place regular pizza (a.k.a cardboard pizza) option when you can go with a much tastier gourmet pizza? What exactly is the difference between a gourmet pizza and a regular pizza?

Use of Ingredients

The typical selections for regular pizzas are cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and supreme. Most pizza chains will let you combine or add toppings, but at an additional cost. If you are someone who likes a busy pizza then your option is supreme, or nothing. A Gourmet pizza do not adhere to topping limitations. Rather, gourmet pizzas represent creativity and uniqueness…something ordinary pizzas do not.

The Dough

“We take a hands-on approach to our dough. We use only freshly baked dough. Every day.”

Hand-stretched dough – made freshly in our kitchen using quality ingredients kneaded in pure olive oil with no added preservatives – makes every bite tantalisingly tasty. That’s our secret to the imperfectly textured crust which is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. On the other hand, chain pizza stores use a ready made dough which is made in the factory.

Sauces & Toppings

Gourmet pizza includes a wider variety of toppings & sauces and a more intricate preparation process. Pizza Sauce, Marinara, Bolognese, Alfredo & even Vegan cheese are made fresh almost daily. 

The Baking

Gourmet pizza is baked at a very high 400c temperature using deck stone oven which requires experienced bakers.
Meanwhile chain pizza store uses conveyor oven which is best for high-volume production and do not require experienced staff.
Very high temperature is paramount for a well baked pizza. Gourmet pizza which is well baked can be identified using their burn spots and air bubbles. This usually indicates that the crust is removed from the oven just before the burning point, a crucial knowledge for any baker. Chain pizza stores on the contrary are set up in a way where anyone is able to make a pizza using a pre-set environment.
