Inside the Factory

Series 4 Episode 6: Pizza

Gregg Wallace is in Italy, at an enormous pizza factory where they produce 400,000 frozen pizzas each day. He mixes up a 450 kilo batch of dough for the bases, enough for 180,000 pizzas. He watches as each one is stretched to exactly 26 centimetres in diameter, then pricked with 522 holes, each 4 mm deep, before they're topped with tomato and disappear into the wood fired oven.
