Too often, par-baked crusts are considered functional but not necessarily flavorful. The “cardboard crust” reputation keeps restaurant and c-store owners, purchasing managers, and customers from exploring the possibilities of par-bakes.
Alive & Kickin’ Par-Baked Crusts are game-changers. Our recipe and process innovations have greatly enhanced par-baked crust quality, but that’s just the beginning. The wide selection of flavor profiles, sizes, and shapes provide flexibility in product offerings that are sure to satisfy customers.
“Par-baked crust” refers to a dough that has already gone through the baking process once, giving the crust the same essential properties as baked bread.
Par-baked crusts are the ultimate in convenience:
From a crisp, flaky ultra-thin to a rich, yeasty Sicilian-style dough, our par-baked crusts offer the full range of styles, textures, and tastes:
