For National Pizza Day Feb. 9, Coast Packing Recommends Lard for That Crust – and Has Recipes to Celebrate the Occasion
Ready to Prep: Pizza Dough with Lard and Tarte Flambée Pizza
VERNON, Calif. (February 8, 2023) – In a tasty followup to National Pizza Week, January 14-20, Coast Packing Company, the largest supplier of animal fat shortenings in the Western U.S., is serving up recipes fit for National Pizza Day, this Thursday, February 9.
In the kitchen — and in the oven – are Coast’s Pizza Dough with Lard recipe and Tarte Flambée Pizza, both courtesy of Coast Corporate Chef Greg Hozinsky.
“We love pizza in so many ways, and the variations truly are limitless,” Hozinsky said. “Our dough recipe works with virtually any topping, sauce and/or cheese, and it’s amazing any way you slice it. I’m partial to Tarte Flambée Pizza, an especially rich way to mark #NationalPizzaDay.”
For first-time, every time quality from pizza crust, Chef Greg recommends that home cooks use lard. “You’ll end up with a consistent dough that is well hydrated and contains both the textural benefits of adding a little fat and irresistible bacon-forward flavors,” he said.
And if you’re still hungry, there’s always National Pizza Month… though you’ll need to wait until October to indulge.
