Pizza and baked goods world trends: what awaits us in 2021

2020 has sometimes upset our daily habits.

People definitely changed the way they shop, cook and eat. Consumers couldn’t go to restaurants, pizzerias and places to eat so they turned massively to delivery options.

This paradigm shift must be taken into account by hospitality industry professionals.

 

Pizza: the most favourite takeaway dish

According to The Fork, the leading online restaurant booking platform, pizza is undoubtedly the most popular takeaway dish.

This has forced restaurant operators to change gear to respond to the growing demand for takeaway dishes, encouraging them to alter their production techniques and to use more suitable commercial appliances.

 

Commercial ovens for takeaway cooking: the 2021’s must-have

The new needs have highlighted the distinctive characteristics of the Alfa Forni commercial product range. The “new normal” in the Ho.re.ca business demands speed, mobility and simplicity.

Alfa stepped up to the plate by offering smaller commercial ovens ready for installation on vehicles and powerful enough to deal with takeaway orders.

An acceleration in keeping with the trends expected for this year.

 

Bakery 2.0: quality and professionalism for a new pizzeria concept

In addition to suitable tools to address the new business environment, the cooking techniques need an upgrade too.

The best pizza chefs are now looking for ways to ensure the same quality in dishes that are not eaten on the spot but that must survive the journey from the restaurant to your doorstep.

In fact, they are two sides of the same coin: the continuous experimentation of pizza chefs by profession and those who provide the right equipment to face the challenges of the coming years!

 

Homemade pizza: a domestic passion

An increasingly popular solution is the preparation of meal kits from high-end restaurants and pizzerias with all the ingredients selected and weighted to be finished in the home oven.

The most popular delivery food is gaining momentum within the home as well, thanks to the lockdown that has led to the rediscovery of the joy of cooking, a passion that will continue into 2021.
