Five years ago, pizza dough balls were a small portion of Custom Foods’ business. Today, it makes up about 30%.
Mixing in flour
Bulk flour is pneumatically conveyed to the mixer; specialty flours for custom formulas are added by hand.
Maintaining dough levels
An inductive sensor reads dough levels in the hopper to keep production in motion.
The pizza line’s freezer can run 15,000 lbs of dough per hour.
Dough's path to rounders
Pizza dough pieces travel in two directions from the divider toward four conical rounders.
Automation streamlined efficiency for Custom Foods and increased capacity for its pizza dough production.
The team at Custom Foods
