Some say there can never be too many pizza places in a city. Indeed, we are a nation that sure does have a love affair with this versatile and popular food. But if you are going through the motions of opening a pizza joint, including buying your commercial hood from us, there are several factors you need to consider. Here are our thoughts of what makes a great pizza.
One of the things you need to take into consideration is the toppings your will be offering for your pizzas. Look, we all know you need to have plenty of pepperoni and black olives available, these are, after all, the more popular pizza toppings. But there is a certain percentage of the population that desires more unique pizza toppings, you know, items you cannot get when ordering from Dominoes or other chains. For example, artichoke hearts are a fan favorite for pizza snobs, as is squash, zucchini and broccoli. For those who favor seafood flavors, seared tuna is awesome on pizza. Other meats you should consider having available for your pizza includes pancetta, capicola and soppresata. Simply delicious.
Pizza with tomato sauce is delicious, but sometimes you need to leave the can of tomato sauce on the shelf and offer something completely different. For example, honey goat cheese with caramelized onions would hit the spot right about now, as would a nice arugula pomegranate pizza. Take this tissue, your mouth is starting to water. It’s nearly Halloween, no better time to have available a pumpkin pie pizza. And for the kids, you really should offer a scrumptious mac and cheese pizza.
Look, opening a pizza joint is as fun as it is challenging. But better success will depend on how you stand out from the crowd. After all, your won’t be the only pizza place in town.
