Online ordering. Clean ingredients. Unique toppings. New styles. While pizza is still a favorite comfort food around the world, consumer desires are shifting. That doesn’t mean they’re not buying—the U.S. pizza market alone pulls in over $44 billion a year. But staying competitive means differentiating your product. Enhance your pizza crust expertise and elevate your craft by exploring new ingredient trends and expanding your menu options to fire up your sales. Attending IBIE is as close to getting your PhD in the science of baking as you can get in just a short amount of time.
