pepperoni, Italian Sausage topping, bacon topping, Canadian Bacon and
beef and chicken toppings. "
Hormel's pizza program has changed in three significant ways in
recent years, Pick said.
The acquisition of Fontanini in 2017 gave Hormel one of the top
brands in premium pizza toppings, with a reputation for quality and
flavor that Pick calls second to none.
Two, Hormel has added a variety of new pepperoni with elevated
flavor profiles - both in lay flat and cup-and-char varieties.
And finally, the company has continued to innovate its pizza toppings
portfolio to ensure it has a pizza topping to meet any consumer or
retailer needs or preferences.
" From our classic Hormel pizza toppings to our premium Fontanini
Italian Meats, as well as the natural line of Applegate pizza toppings
and our latest Happy Little Plants plant-based pizza toppings, we have
the broad and on-trend portfolio of products to meet the needs of any
retailer or consumer, " Pick said.

Better cheese, please
Green Bay, Wis.-based BelGioioso Cheese, Inc. has also seen an increase
in prepared foods sales and, as a result, the company believes the
demand for pizza sold in the grocery/deli area has increased as well,
said Sean Moran, vice president of sales and marketing.
More flavor from high quality ingredients is a trend that continues to
be effective for deli/prepared departments' pizza offerings, Moran said.
" We continue to promote our full line of award-winning artisan
cheeses which perform perfectly on pizzas, " he said. " We recently
introduced a low moisture mozzarella blend that we believe pizza
operators will love. "
The new Secret Pizza Blend, as the product is known, is a
combination of mozzarella with a hint of parmesan - what Moran
characterizes as a " go-to flavor combination " used by many of today's
best pizzamakers. It's available pre-shredded in 5-pound foodservice
bags and in 10 oz. retail cups.
BelGioioso's full lineup of cheeses for pizza includes Fresh Mozzarella
and a creamy Platinum Label Low Moisture Mozzarella in custom
blends of whole milk and part skim or with Provolone and Parmesan.
On the more adventurous artisan side, BelGioioso offers CrescenzaStracchino®, CreamyGorg®, Fontina, Ricotta con Latte®, Burrata
and Stracciatella, which Moran said all add distinct flavors to
handcrafted pizzas.
" We truly have the broadest assortment of Italian style cheeses in the
industry, " he said. " The product roster has not really changed so much.
What has changed is the demand for pizza cheeses has accelerated. "

x Easier to use and clean: The larger front and top doors make it easier
to load ingredients, clean, and service while providing operators
better interior visibility to monitor ingredient levels. The system is
now easier to break down at the end of the day and more parts are
dishwasher safe.
x Improved user interface: The user interface has been optimized for
usability with easy-to-use menus and utilities so anyone can operate
the system with minimal training. The system also offers improved
monitoring and user feedback to let operators know if attention
is needed.
x Better food safety and cleanliness: The new refrigeration and
enclosed design ensure all surfaces are maintained at food-safe
temperatures. The improved hopper design allows for drainage of
extra liquid for better handling of wet and brined ingredients.
x Improved food handling: Picnic redesigned the food handling
system to provide better topping accuracy and to better maintain
cleanliness throughout the day.
" We are seeing an increase in enthusiasm for our system and early
indications are that the improvements we've made resonate with our
customers, " said Clayton Wood, Picnic's CEO. " With our success and
these improvements, an increasing number of kitchen operators are
contacting us with interest in our system. "
The Picnic system uses a modular assembly line with high-capacity
sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and granular ingredient dispensers. Picnic
software solutions include an intuitive touchscreen interface for
ordering pizza. The system is easy to install, requires limited build-out,
and has a small footprint that fits easily in most locations, according to
the company.
It allows kitchen operators to use their own recipe with precision
and consistency while reducing food waste by eliminating overtopping
and spillage. The system can make hundreds of pizzas per hour in any
shape from 8 to 18 inches with full per pizza customization.

Automated pizza-making system gets upgrades
Seattle-based food production technology leader Picnic has made
upgrades to the automated pizza assembly system it introduced in 2019.
The new improvements to the system include:
x New design: The new design maintains the commercial-grade
ruggedness of the previous system but is now more aesthetically
pleasing so it can be placed in front-of-house. The new design
improves upon existing hardware by enhancing ease-of-assembly
and reliability.
