Como Dough ... your destination for delicious fresh baked goods and wood fired pizzas.
Who we are
Local baker, Mark Risch, has been baking for years at restaurants around Columbia and already has a successful bread and baked goods business, Como Dough. He's been selling his goodies at Farmers' Markets and local businesses. His cinnamon buns have quite a following in these parts. It's been his dream for years to put a wood fired pizza oven on a trailer and go mobile. Nothing cooks pizza like a good fire. Mark's been tweaking his pizza dough recipe to perfection. It's delicious!! His goal is to bring the art of wood fired cooking to Columbia ... to offer artisanal pizzas and a variety of other menu items cooked fresh in the wood fired oven.
How we do it
Our oven is a Forno Bravo and it does a great job. It runs at about 900° and cooks a pizza in roughly two minutes. Our oven is mounted in our pizza trailer and we expect to mount a second later this year. Excited? You bet!!!
We'll be using local, fresh and organic (as much as possible) ingredients. We're trying to support local businesses and agriculture as much as we can. So far we know that we'll be using:
- Goatsbeard Farm cheeses,
- Patchwork Family Farms ham,
- Walk-About Acres pork,
- Global Foods feta cheese and
- local suppliers of fresh fruits and vegetables, just to name a few.
By making the pizza oven mobile, Mark is bringing the pizza to you making the possibilities almost endless ... private parties, festivals, catered events or the streets of Columbia.
