What’s the Process of Certifying Pizza as Being Kosher?
Cheese is the first ingredient looked at in your kosher pizza. There is a special requirement when it comes to kosher pizza cheese which requires a rabbi supervising it from setting to packaging. Just assuming the cheeses ingredients in a kosher pizza are kosher isn’t good enough. Therefore, only cheese that is made under consistent watch of a rabbi is allowed.
Although spices and sauce are not under the same supervision requirement, they still have to be approved as being kosher. A lot tomato pastes and sauces are made in plants that are also handling non-kosher cheese and meats, therefore, pizza sauce ingredients have to be examined carefully for kosher status. Spices as well have to be verified that they meet kosher specifications to ensure they are free from infestation and are made in a safe environment.
While there are many all-kosher pizza plants, some are not, therefore, there needs to be elaborate systems in place for production that guarantee kosher status of equipment and ingredients. Pizza plants that are all-kosher often run without the need for a full-time rabbi supervising. Kosher cheese which is made under rabbi supervision needs to be signed and sealed by the rabbi right at the cheese plant.
When it comes to food-service establishments, full-time rabbinic supervision is often a requirement even if the establishment is all-kosher. Many of these food-service settings are Jewish owned, and are subjected to special requirements in which a portion of each dough batch (referred to as challah) be divided as a tithe before use. This procedure is normally handled by the on-site rabbi. Also, any fresh additives in kosher pizza operations have to go through careful inspection before use since some types of produce can be extremely prone to infestation. The rabbi that is on-site has to be trained to inspect and target all of these types of ingredients. Some of the kosher-sensitive fresh produce include: lettuce, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli and various leafy spices.
