Will I be serving stuffed pizza, thin crust pizza , deep dish pizza or a different style of pizza and what type of pizza pan will this require?
Would I prefer to cook my pizzas on a pizza stone rather than a pizza pan?
Will I be serving pizza every day or only as part of a rotating menu and do I need extra pizza pans on hand for production?

Pizza Pans and Screens: Choose pizza pans made from materials like aluminum or stainless steel for durability and efficient heat transfer. Deep-dish pans are ideal for thicker crusts, while perforated pans promote crispier crusts.
Pizza screens are great for achieving a crispy crust and even baking. Look for screens made from aluminum or other heat-conductive materials.
Dough Preparation: Select dough mixers with appropriate capacity to handle your production volume. Planetary mixers are commonly used for pizza dough due to their versatility and durability.
Consider dough sheeters or rollers for quick and consistent dough shaping. These machines can save time and effort compared to hand-stretching.
Toppings and Ingredient Storage: Invest in high-quality ingredient storage containers that are air-tight and keep your toppings fresh. Look for containers made of food-grade materials like polycarbonate or polypropylene.
Consider portioning tools like ingredient bins with built-in portion control scoops to ensure consistent topping measurements and reduce waste.
Serving and Display: If you offer pizza by the slice, consider pizza merchandisers or display cases to showcase your product and keep it at the desired temperature.
Utensils like pizza peels, spatulas, and serving trays should be durable and heat-resistant for safe and efficient serving.
Cleaning and Maintenance: Prioritize supplies that are easy to clean and maintain. Look for dishwasher-safe items and materials that resist staining and corrosion.
Consider the availability of replacement parts and accessories for your chosen equipment to ensure long-term usability and minimize downtime.
