It’s a brand new world: If you’re craving an artisan pizza, you don’t need to go to an Italian pizzeria anymore. Thanks to Dodo Pizza, now you can have superior pizza delivered right to your door. We attach this sticker to every box as a token of our determination to deliver delicious, hot pizza no matter what the Universe decides to throw at us.
It won’t take long. First, learn our key principles, defined by our core values. Then we’ll tell you about our dough, ingredients, and recipes. At the end, you’ll find out how technology helps us make fast deliveries.
You can’t make a damn good pizza if you aren’t guided by the right principles. Check out our values.
Now when you know the main principles, it’s time to get more down-to-earth. Even a pizza genius can’t make a good pizza with bad ingredients.
Let’s learn how to make the perfect dough—the basis of the perfect pizza.
OK, we’ve got some dough. Now we have to top it with something tasty.
It’s obvious that at Dodo, mozzarella should be a whole-milk, never-frozen product. Besides that, pay attention to the expiration date. Since no preservatives should be involved, the shelf life of the cheese has to be no longer than one month. We don’t want our mozzarella to lose its aroma, so we stay away from cheese that’s already been grated. We don’t let ourselves be lazy, so we grate it the same day we put it onto our pizza.
The best way to find the best meat is to buy it from the right people! So we look for family-owned award-winning companies where old-world recipes are followed with passion and persistence. They can provide us with great meats containing no nitrates, nitrites, BHA, and BHT food preservatives.
Let’s make it simple: vegetables should be fresh all year, no matter what. Is that even possible? You’d be surprised. We work with a supplier that can make deliveries from different states across the US. During the low season, we’ll have to get vegetables from distant farms and pay more, but it’s worth it. Canned food is banned in our kitchen. Even pineapples should be fresh.
Forget about ready-made pizza sauce that is re-manufactured from bulk tomato concentrate and water. Lengthy heating leaves behind little fresh flavor and forms “over-cooked” flavor compounds. We can do a better job if we find sauce that is packed from tomatoes only no more than 24 hours after they are picked. We add some spices to make our sauce unique: red and black pepper, thyme, garlic, nutmeg, and fresh (not dried!) basil.
It’s no secret that IT is changing the world. Keeping this in mind, we’ve developed our own information system—Dodo IS. It facilitates the processes in the kitchen and provides the data we need to run the business more efficiently. For example, check our real-time sales figures at our first store in the US (located in Oxford, MS).
