Pizza is a universal language of deliciousness, but not all pizzas are created equal. One term you may have come across is “par-baked,” especially if you’re a fan of RePizza’s artisanal offerings. 

But what exactly does par-baked mean, and why is it a game-changer in the world of pizza? Let’s delve into the art of partial baking and discover why it’s a technique worth knowing.

What is Par-Baked Pizza?

Par-baked, short for “partially baked,” refers to a pizza base that has been pre-baked to a certain extent but not fully cooked. This allows for a quicker and more convenient final cooking process, without compromising on quality or flavour.

The Benefits of Par-Baking


One of the most significant advantages of par-baked pizza is convenience. Because the base is already partially cooked, it takes less time to complete the baking process. 

This is particularly beneficial for busy hospitality venues that need to serve high-quality pizza quickly.


Par-baking ensures a consistent product every time. The initial baking sets the structure of the crust, allowing for a uniform texture and flavour in the final product.


Par-baked bases offer incredible versatility. They can be stored for extended periods and are ready to be customised with your choice of toppings whenever the pizza craving strikes.
