Breif Description of Home-made food business

Following parameters are considered while writing this post


This article discusses homemade Food Products (Pizza & cakes). Its pizza procedure involves dough preparation, topping ingredient preparation, topping application, and baking. Mixing the batter, filling the molds, baking, cooling, and eventually stripping, decorating, and packing cakes are all part of the process. We will consider the entire process flow as manual, it requires expert personnel to use specialized mixing and baking equipment.

If you are a chef or know how to cook, the above section is for you. The next and most important part is sales. You will need an interactive website to take orders online. A beautiful catalog for cakes and pizza should be available on the website.


As we are considering the home-made food business so location will be your home and you can deliver whereever you want. however if ideal location will be residential areas where delivery will be easy and human resources available


The company suggests making pizza and cakes (pound, dryfruit, plain, fruit, and cream cakes) and marketing them through media exposure and website development. Chicken Tikka, Chicken Fajita, Chicken Tandoori, B.B.Q pizza, grilled chicken, vegetable feast, Hawaiian, Italiano pizza, and other pizza varieties are offered. Whereas the cakes department would make pound cake, cheese cake, various dry fruit cakes, simple & fruits cakes, and fresh cream cakes in various flavors, among other items.

Target Market

The products’ target market is local, i.e. people residing in Quetta, Karachi, Lahore, KPK, and Islamabad, who may order their product by phone or online through its website and have it delivered to their location.

Estimated Manpower

As this is big venue for indivisual we need to hire a team for that purpose. i am considering total of 12 personals for this Business

Basic Production Process Flow

we will discuss basic process flow of major items here. recipes will not be shared. so let’s start


  1. Making the dough
    Making the dough is the first step in the procedure. A high-quality pizza dough is essential for producing a light and delicious pizza. A bread maker can help you save time while producing a handmade crust. Consider adding a few herbs, such as basil or rosemary, and garlic to the dough to boost the flavor.
  2. Making the Crust
    Pre-baking the pizza crust is a major step that many people overlook when cooking pizza. Baking your crust for six minutes or so before adding toppings in a preheated oven to 425F prevents the dreaded “doughy crust” that is often the downfall of an otherwise excellent homemade pizza.
  3. Prepare the Sauce and Topping Ingredients
    Sauces are an important component of pizza making, and they can also be created at home rather than purchasing costly prepackaged sauces. However, the decision is made by the you. The sauce is then drizzled over the pizza top. We can sprinkle cheese at this point if the recipe calls for it.
    The topping components are then filled in on top of the sauce and distributed uniformly for uniform texture and flavor.
  4. Preparing the pizza for baking
    The pizza is baked for about 15 minutes at 450°F (230°C), or until the cheese is bubbling. The pan or stone is removed from the oven with the peel. Pizza should be sit for 5 minutes before cutting into slices


There are hundreds of Cake recipe; some are bread-like, some are rich and ornate, and many are centuries old. Most commercial cakes are created with a batter that contains wheat flour, oil, eggs, sugar, milk powder, water, flavorings, preservatives like sulphur dioxide, and rising agents like sodium carbonate. The components are mixed together using either the sugar batter or the flour batter procedures. The butter and sugar are mixed together in the sugar batter method, followed by the liquid and then the flour. The fat is combined with the flour before being progressively mixed with the eggs and sugar in the flour batter method. The “all-in-one” method, which combines all components except the fruit at the same time, is becoming more popular.

  1. Mixing the Batter
    A commercial mixer is used to combine the batter. After combining all of the ingredients, the mixer continues to beat the batter for another 10 minutes to trap air and allow the cake to rise appropriately. The air, in conjunction with the added raising agent, causes the cake to expand during the baking process. After mixing is finished, the batter is poured into a form and baked.
  2. Mould Filling
    A little layer of oil is sprayed on the baking mold to prevent the batter from sticking to it during the baking process. The mold is then filled with batter based on its shape, weight, and level.
  3. Baking
    When the molds are full, they are placed in an automated oven. The oven’s temperature and humidity are carefully controlled to achieve the greatest results for the cake type, ensuring that it cooks evenly and thoroughly. The crust is sprayed with water to prevent the cake’s surface from splitting during the initial rising process.
  4. Cooling Down
    The cake must be properly and carefully cooled down after baking to avoid collapse. As the cake cools, moisture is released into the air, which is collected by powerful suction blowers in the kitchen, preventing condensation from forming.
  5. Stripping, decoration, and packaging
    When the cake is entirely cool, it is removed from the mold and packaged so that it may be transported. Condensation will form and damage the product if the cake is not entirely cooled before packaging. Commercial cakes are often covered in plastic, with the addition of a cardboard tray. Cream cakes are decorated with flavored cream and other ingredients after being removed from their molds and packed in boxes or kept open and stored in the refrigerator to rest before shipment.

Consideration of Operational Capacities

The project’s yearly installed production capacity is 118,109 cakes and pizza, with a capacity of 67,200 pizzas and 50,909 cakes. Chicken Tikka, Chicken Fajita, Chicken Tandoori, B.B.Q pizza, grilled chicken, vegetable feast, Hawaiian, and Italiano pizza are among the pizza options. Whereas the cakes area would make pound cake, cheese cake, various dry fruit cakes, simple & fruits cakes, and fresh cream cakes in various flavors, among other things. Project capacity utilization is projected to be 70% in the first year and increases at a rate of 5% per year, with a limit of 95%.
