Sauces, Soups, and Pasta With The Crown Steam Group’s Kettles and Braising Pans
Food prep in a pizzeria can be something that seems tedious. Having enough product can make a difference in making a profit for the day or losing money. But is making a profit worth using canned and prepared foods to get orders out the door? High-quality sauces your pizzeria serves doesn’t have to be skipped because you think that it’s easier to use pre-made products. Serving menu items made from real food that isn’t processed is easier than you think. With Crown braising pans and kettles, it’s as easy as pie.
Preparing pizza sauce from scratch is a healthier option than serving it out of a jar or can. Not only are there more nutrients in homemade sauce, but using fresh tomatoes and basil will give the sauce a brighter flavor profile, setting yours apart from the competition. Using locally grown products will be even more nutritious since produce continues to lose nutrients once it’s picked. And packaged products tend to have more sodium and sugars to help with the preservation process. So making your own means you can control exactly what is included.
Help The Environment
Making your own sauce not only is a healthier option for your customers but also for the Earth. The transportation of food is a big business and on average, food travels 1,500 miles from where it starts to the final table. That’s a big carbon footprint to be putting down to ship jars and cans of sauce. And by using local produce to make the pizza sauce, your business can help make an environmental difference while supporting small businesses like your own.
Adding Extra Profit
If you’re looking to add extra profits to your business, dishes such as pasta and soups are great additional choices to add to your menu. Inexpensive and easy to prepare, both pasta and soup are American favorites. The National Pasta Association found that 86% of survey respondents said they ate pasta at least once a week. And Italian Wedding Soup, one of the most popular soups in the country, can even use leftover meatballs, pasta, cheese, and greens, helping to eliminate food waste as well.
Crown braisers and kettles can help your pizzeria make homemade sauces, soups and pasta quicker and better. With a 316 liner, there’s no pitting on the inside from the acid of tomatoes. There’s no worrying about pots on the stove overflowing or burning from lack of stirring. And these multi-purpose units allow you to have less equipment, saving on space.
