Designed to let dough cool, rest and rise in a sanitary environment after it has been kneaded, pizza dough boxes are a common item in many pizza parlors, bakeries, and sandwich shops. Dough proofing pans enable bread or pizza crusts to rise higher and with more consistency. Made from either durable plastics like polycarbonate or polypropylene or sturdy aluminum. Available in different sizes for storing one or more portions of dough. Pans and boxes can be round, square, or rectangular. Pizza dough containers can be stacked when used with lids, for efficient use of space and a steady supply of fresh dough.
