At home or at the restaurant, for lunch, office parties, or even for breakfast, ordered in person or online, the interest in pizza choices never fades. On
the contrary, new, exciting taste offerings, product claims and ingredient combinations are welcomed opportunities to experiment.
The global pizza market size reached USD 141.1 billion in 2022 and Research And Markets expects it will reach USD 192.4 billion by 2028. Healthier product options such as vegan, low-calorie and gluten-free pizzas are drawing consumers in. The Western European market has grown by 8.6% between 2022 and 20231, the largest growth rate worldwide. Next, APAC was also forecast to grow by 8.3% last year, while the pizza industry in Eastern Europe showed similar growth during this period, ranking third (7.6%).
Preparing pizza implies making and forming dough bases, onto which sauce and toppings are added. With each stage, there are opportunities to diversify the final product. For industrial production, pizza lines are made to welcome any variations required. Accurate processes are a must for these flexible lines.
