No more overstretching the dough. Custom made measuring circles.
A couple years ago, Portion PadL customers who made Neapolitan and New York style pizzas contacted Portion PadL inventor, Greg Getzinger, asking for help. They were tired of being harassed by their local health department for using ink on their wood pizza peels. The health department couldn’t determine if the ink on the wood was toxic or non-toxic. The Health Department would confiscate their inked pizza peels.
They asked Greg if the same kind of centering circles that were on the surface of the Portion PadL could be placed on the surface of wood pizza peels for accurately sizing their pizzas. Greg developed a relationship with one of the top pizza peel manufacturers in the United States to make the perfect pizza peel for consistently stretching dough to the desired size.
The perfect name for portioning stretched dough on a pizza peel, The Portion PeeL
After passing out some of Greg’s Portion PeeL to some of his Portion PadL customers, thier expectations were met and their feedback all very positive. Not only did the laser etched measuring circles resolve the health department’s ink issues, the measuring circles helped his customer’s with evenly stretching the dough to the desired size and thickness which consistently baked a better-quality crust. By eliminating overstretching the dough, Greg’s Portion PeeL customers also noticed that they were reducing their food cost. They were using less pizza sauce, cheese and topping when pizzas their pizzas were stretched to the correct size. The reduced food cost increased their profits.
Why buy a cheap pizza peel that increases food cost and reduces profits? Invest a couple dollars more on the Portion PeeL to increase profits by hundreds to thousand dollars a year.
Made in the USA
One of the fundamental philosophies with the Portion PadL products is that all the products are made 100% in the USA. Even if that means delaying the introduction of innovative products. The Portion PeeL is made from domestic Basswood and crafted by a commercial wood pizza peel manufacturer, who is well known for making quality pizza peels for the commercial pizza industry.
Improve efficiency, quality and consistency
A common practice when making the traditional Neapolitan and New York style thin crust pizza is to stretch the dough on the surface of a wood pizza peel and make the pizza on the surface of the wood pizza peel. Typically, pizza peels are rectangular in shape, which does not help for accurately making a round pizza. Often users of wood pizza peels are faced with a dilemma. Buy a smaller pizza peel size, which cost a little less, but requires stretching the dough all the way to the end of the three beveled edges. Or pay a little more for the next bigger size to reap the benefit of using the flat surface and avoid the three sides of bevel edges.
The biggest problem with both scenarios is figuring out how to accurately size the dough. This dilemma has forced pizza peel users to use a magic marker or ink pen to draw their own measuring circles onto the surface of the wood pizza peel. Potentially, a serious health violation with local health departments. A serious liability issue for the pizza business if a toxic ink is accidentally used.
Compliance Requirement with FDA Menu Label Guidelines
Portion PeeL Assures Portioning Size Requirement
In May of 2018, the FDA Menu Labeling guidelines will require chains of twenty or more to display on their menus the calories for their regular menu pizza items. The pizza’s calories will need to be advertised for the whole pizza or by the slice.
Stretched dough on a wood pizza peel without measuring circles has the potential to be consistently over stretched to the advertised sized on the menu boar Inaccurately sized pizzas may bring unwanted attention to the consumer, consumer protection groups, competitors or federal regulators, placing the potential risk of negative publicity, legal issues or non-compliance fines for the business owner.
