The Power of Puff Pastry Dough!

Puff pastry is found in many types of operations, from grocery stores and bakeries to high-end caterers, hotels and fine dining restaurants.

Puff pastry dough is a blank canvas for chefs to incorporate different ingredients. It adds a light flaky crust that helps to create a more upscale presentation. Puff pastry is found in both savory and sweet applications and is versatile through the dayparts and menu parts.

Puff pastry is made by layering a specially formulated dough and fat or oil in a process known as lamination. The melting fat creates steam when the product is baked which causes the product to rise and creates flaky layers.
