That doesn't necessarily mean it's used that same day, nor should it be IMO.

Technicially that is true Anthony. But wouldn't they be implying that the dough is made and cooked same day ? Just sounds to me like emergency pizza dough recipes used.

They could be using a rotation system, fresh that day goes in the cooler and they pull from the 2nd or 3rd day stack etc.......

Statements like that aren't intended for people like us who actually think about what it might mean. It's for the sheeple who don't think and don't know any better. Wow - they make fresh dough - it must be good.

I think you and Anthony are both right: it should be made every day but not used the day it's made, and most places do make it every day and use it shortly after making it.

I guess the alternative to " fresh dough made daily"  would be " we use old dough refrigerated for 5 days in our fridges" wouldn't go over very well.  ;D

Most of us here would accept the later in a flash, many not here would run for the hills and look for that "fresh is good" establishment.

Carl,

There are also places that use frozen dough balls or dough balls delivered from a commissary that are supposedly "fresh, never frozen", which some people have a hard time believing, so touting your pizzas as using dough that is made fresh daily is a good marketing tool.

If you tell the average Joe that your dough is 2-5 days old they will run from your shop but tell them it is made every couple hours and they will line up to get it.  Walter

How about "Our dough is aged for no less than 12 years in oak barrels."  Those pizzas would fetch hundreds of dollars each!

Most certainly, clever marketing it is. We all know better. Even me.  ;D

Well when you think about it, pizza is actually a "fungus sponge" topped with "rotten milk clumps."

So pizza is sort of a "marketing gimmick" to begin with.

Not sure rotten milk is an accurate description of mozzarella.

I was joking. Just saying that the more people understand what they are eating, the less appetizing it tends to be.

I like my dough 2 days old, my steak 30 days old, pork products 5 years old, and my tomatoes out of cans. Sounds horrible, the average person would think.
