Strictly ‘knead’ to know ‘bases’ for Four Star Pizza ‘Doughologists’
When it comes to pizza, most of us are fairly flexible about the toppings we choose but what we place our cheese, salami, pepperoni or onions on is hallowed ground and can tip the balance of a ‘good’ pizza versus a ‘magnificent’ pizza.
This is where the artistry of the pizza base maker comes into play or, Doughologist, as they are known at Four Star Pizza, explained Brian Clarke from Four Star Pizza.
“The art of making the perfect pizza dough isn’t as easy as you might think to get right. At Four Star Pizza we make our own pizza bases fresh, in store every single day. It is a mark of dedication to quality that sets us apart from everyone else in the market”, commented Brian.
He continued: “To become a fully-fledged Four Star Pizza Doughologist takes five months of intensive training, kneading and mixing. Only then can our dedicated Doughologists deliver the exacting quality pizza bases that our customers have come to enjoy for many years in Northern Ireland.”
For most, the pizza base, whether it’s thin, regular or thick, is crucial to the overall enjoyment of the pizza.
“The quality of the pizza dough plays a major role in how tasty the pizza is no matter how thick or thin you like it, especially the following day, which is when a lot us like to devour the remnants from the night before. In fact, some of our customers say the taste of day old pizza is almost as good as a freshly made one!”, continued Brian.
Four Star Pizza’s freshly made pizza dough contains locally sourced ingredients but the exact recipe is on a ‘knead’ to know ‘bases’.
“We source all of our ingredients, where possible, locally, including flour from Neill’s Flour which is a major component of our dough. Our secret recipe and the skill that our Doughologist uses to bind these ingredients together in a deliciously harmonious way helps to create the perfect pizza base, every single time”, concluded Brian.
The first Four Star Pizza store in Northern Ireland was opened in 1999 on Belfast’s Beersbridge Road and last month, the opening of a new store in Bangor brought the total here to 12, with other locations including Carrickfergus, Newry, Drumahoe, Derry, Armagh, Portstewart and Newtownabbey.
