Dough Management 101 

Are you tired of constantly using under-proofed or blown dough? Having perfectly proofed dough is the first step to making great pizzas every time. Think about what is graded first on a cut test, the Rim! Take these steps to ensure you have perfectly proofed dough at all times!


1) Print out the dough proofing projection (Back office- Management-Inventory- Dough Inventory) This breaks it down by patties/trays you will need per hour. I would recommend adding a 10% buffer since we are getting busier every day. Print out a page of each size of dough and post it where it is communicated to everyone.

2) Proof dough away from the production area, find an area in your store with a controlled temperature. If you are unable due to space, proof as far away from the oven as possible. Cross stack your dough to ensure the whole stack proofs properly. (4 dough trays, 1 empty tray, rotate and repeat up to 25)

3) Store dough at least 3” away from the wall in your walk-in to allow proper air circulation to ensure even proofing. Store the furthest away from the walk-in door.

4) Order correctly on EFO, take the time to confirm amounts before placing. Not ordering enough will fall you into the danger zone of ending up with only green dough. If you are ordering too much, you run the risk of dough expiring. (Double check inventory to make sure it’s accurate before placing EFO order.)

5) Avoid using dough straight from the walk-in, yes this includes small dough. Use the dough proofing projection report to know how much small dough to proof and when.

 A reminder we are to NEVER use green or expired dough. Printing out the dough proofing projection can give you a heads up if you are at risk of running into using green dough. If you catch it early, this gives you time to start making phone calls to surrounding stores and your District Manager. If you are running into issues with dough management, please reach out to your support staff for some further guidance.

Let’s sell more great pizzas and have more fun!!
