Baker’s Quality Pizza Crusts® Par-Baked Crusts are docked and ready to sauce and top. Like the fresh sheeted crusts, they are yeast leavened and just as flavorful. This is a distinctive thin, crispy style crust when cooked that is fully proofed for full flavor and allows for easy handling and immediate service.
Keep frozen, but thaw at least one hour prior to use. Thaw the crusts in a plastic bag so they don’t dry out. In a case of crusts, there is waxed paper between every 10 crusts so that a portion of a case can easily be removed for thawing. Once thawed, store the crusts at 34° - 40° and use from the refrigerator. There is no need for proofing and par-bakes can be held under refrigeration for 4-5 days. To prevent breakage, avoid dropping the case of crusts on the floor or shelf.
When ready to prepare a pizza, remove one crust from the pack, place it on a screen or pizza peel and make the pizza. This crust comes pre-docked but, to avoid excessive bubbling while baking, the crust may be docked again with a dough docking roller prior to preparing the pizza. The crust will bake best in either a slate deck oven or a conveyor oven, both set at a temperature between 450° and 550°. Temperatures are guidelines and will vary depending on the performance of each oven. Your pizza is fully cooked when the toppings are done and the crust is a golden brown on the bottom.
Frozen – 90 days
Refrigerated – 5 days (Do not refreeze)
