flavor & texture.

Pre-made dough balls can make a remarkably positive impact on your business: you’ll save time, ensure consistency, reduce waste and, often, make more profitable pies. We offer a variety of dough ball types, each ideal for different applications — you can even get custom dough balls, based on an old family recipe or a specific flavor profile. Best of all? We’re pretty passionate about ensuring exceptional flavor and texture, so every crust helps enhance the quality of what you do!

Dough Ball Varieties

The sky is the limit with dough balls — the dough maestros at A&K can draw from an extensive catalog of existing recipes or create something brand new. Which you choose will depend on your operation and menu; if you’re not sure, our pizza experts will be more than happy to help you select the best!

We can create a specific pizza dough recipe, in any size of dough ball you want. The advantages of doing this are many: minimizes labor; eliminates the need to buy commercial mixers; eliminates the handling of heavy flour bags; eliminates inconsistencies; gives you a product that’s proprietary — no one else has the recipe.

Our most common (and popular!) dough ball; this one is great for hand-tossing a New York style or sheeted for a crispy thin crust. It’s our most versatile dough, cooks up crispy on the outside with a slightly chewy texture, and browns up nicely. Some other HG styles we commonly make include:

  • Wood Fired HG Dough Balls withstand high temperatures and wood fired ovens
  • HG with a light sourdough flavor
  • HG Dough Balls with Whole Wheat provide a health conscious option
  • Low Moisture HG Dough Balls have a lower moisture content that works great with sheeters

HR Dough Balls offer great value and a more bread-like flavor with a softer, less chewy texture than our HG dough. They’re also great for thicker pizzas and breadsticks. We offer these additional types:

  • HR Dough Balls with Extra Yeast are similar to HR dough balls, but with a bit more “pop” and quicker browning
  • HR Dough Balls for Pan Pizza are similar to HR dough balls, but designed for pan-style and deep-dish pizzas
  • Focaccia Dough Balls are versatile dough balls made with classic focaccia seasonings. Makes great table bread served with olive oil or balsamic vinegar. Works well for gourmet pizzas, or try it with garlic chicken and a white sauce
  • Take ‘N’ Bake Dough Balls are specially made for take-and-bake pizzerias. This product is made to bake well in home ovens. The dough has a great proofed shelf life and works well for pre-made pizzas. The dough hand-tosses well, cooks up crispy and chewy and bakes all the way through
  • Classic Neapolitan Dough Balls are made from imported Italian flour (00) and work great with high-heat oven applications of 600° F and up
  • Beer-Infused Dough Balls feature a unique, subtle flavor, more nuanced than doughs that include only water and oil. A great way to add signature flair to your menu
