A new era in pizza dough

Post on

New-Pizza-Dough-(1)

After three months and 12 iterations of the same recipe, we have updated our pizza dough! The new dough is now being made and served in all locations.

“We had a very simple desire to offer an even better pizza,” explains Chef Nate Weir. “We wanted to serve pizza that could compete with any out there. And not just pizza from other fast casuals, but pizza from higher end pizzerias. All the right pieces were already in place: delicious recipes, high quality ingredients, made-in-house dough, excellent prep systems and talented team members who hand-stretch the dough. The only thing missing was a really top shelf dough that would take our pizzas to the next level in taste and visual appeal.”

In just over three months, Chef Nate developed a new dough that sticks with our simple ingredients rule. It is made from scratch using flour, water, sea salt, yeast, extra virgin olive oil and a dash of agave.  The dough uses an overnight preferment, which adds more flavor and strength to the finished dough.

“Visually, the dough gets beautiful color and char during cooking,” continues Chef Nate. “It has a much more pronounced cornicione, which is the puffy outer rim of a pizza. I liken it to a cross between a neapolitan and New York style dough: crispy and chewy when you first bite in, totally foldable, but very light and airy at the same time. The flavor is distinct and delicious, a little bready with a hint of sourdough, with an almost sweet, wheaty punch – and extra nutrition – from stone-ground whole wheat flour.”

The new pizza dough is now in all Modmarket locations.

Commitment to Community

We are growing fast, and with each grand opening we incorporate a fundraising component during our soft opening week. No pressure to donate. No hard sell at the door. Just some basic information about our nonprofit partner, and the rest is left up to our guests.

We are always blown away by the generosity we see. In Flower Mound, Texas we raised funds for The Kitchen Community, a nonprofit organization that plants learning gardens in schools across the country. More than $3,500 was donated to help create outdoor learning environments and experiential play spaces for children. Exceptional!

As we continue to expand, we are looking forward to more community involvement, more community support and more dollars raised for great causes. We thank our generous guests who donated in the past and look forward to meeting and greeting those who will donate in the future.

Here’s to community! 

How Sweet It Isn’t

Sugar in the Raw

 

If someone told me an artificial food would make me healthier and keep me thinner, my first reaction would be to laugh. It is artificial. What health benefits can it possibly have?

What if I told you they were referring to aspartame, saccharin and other artificial sweeteners? Thousands of Americans consume these types of artificial “foods” in mass quantities believing they help lower blood sugar—or at least keep it static—and keep weight off. So how bad can they really be?

Well,a recent study found artificial sweeteners might actually have the opposite effect on the body as what has been believed for years.

“Saccharin and other artificial sweeteners may raise blood sugar levels—a condition the sugar substitutes aim to help prevent—by altering digestive bacteria,”states Dan Vergano for National Geographic.

The Nat Geo article goes on to explain that researchers “found links between artificial sweetener use, symptoms of obesity and elevated blood sugar, and the kinds of altered gut bacteria” found in mice they researched earlier. Yikes!

Additional investigation must be conducted to further prove these findings. But why wait to find out what we already know? If it is artificial, stay the heck away!!

 

A love letter to Flower Mound

Post on

Dear Flower Mound,

When people questioned why we were opening in Flower Mound, we always responded that it reminded us of all the communities we serve in Colorado – young, vibrant and passionate about great food.  Our first few days open have confirmed that this is indeed the case!

You welcomed us with open arms, open hearts and hungry tummies. Your enthusiasm during trial dining week created lines out the door and down the block, and you helped us raise nearly $4,000 for our nonprofit partner The Kitchen Community. Then the doors officially opened for business, and you came…in droves! 

I am actually sitting in the back of our Flower Mound store on this rainy Friday afternoon writing this letter to you and watching your residents quickly fill the restaurant table by table. I am ecstatic about this turnout and love seeing familiar faces – we are already converting some of you to regulars! (I am also typing faster and faster in order to vacate my table so a hungry guest can sit down!)

We are so very thankful to you for embracing us as you have. We cannot think of a better place to have opened outside our home state. It is a great feeling to call Flower Mound and Texas our new home away from home.

 So thankful to be serving you delicious, healthy food,

 Beth and the Modmarket crew

Modmarket is a Colorado-based farm fresh eatery opening its first out-of-state location in Flower Mound, Texas. Established by two friends who believe fast food can be good food, Modmarket serves healthy, delicious and affordable food in beautiful environments. From salads, soups and sandwiches to pizzas, homestyle plates and breakfast, all entrees are made from scratch using fresh, quality ingredients that can be traced back to farms. Modmarket was named by Thrillist in 2014 as one of 12 small chain eateries poised to be the next “Chipotle.”

Modmarket to Open Four Eateries in Dallas Area

Post on

Let’s make it official! Eating healthy in Dallas is about to get easier thanks to Modmarket and our plans to open four restaurants in Dallas over the next nine months.

 

The first restaurant opens in Flower Mound (3651 Justin Road) in early September, followed by Plano (8400 Preston Road) in October, Preston Hollow (7949 Walnut Hill Lane in the Preston Hollow Village Complex) in January 2015 and Southlake (corner of Southlake Blvd. and Carrol Ave.) in early 2015.

 

Anthony Pigliacampo says expanding into Dallas is a natural progression for the company.  “The Dallas market is ripe for restaurants catering to folks who crave fresh, natural and wholesome ingredients. Our philosophy reigns true in Denver, Dallas or wherever you live: When you put good things in your body, you feel better. It’s that simple.”

 

“Our goal is to serve affordable, clean food that people feel good about purchasing and makes them feel great,” adds Pigliacampo. “Our farm-to-everyone mindset means every meal is made from fresh, thoughtfully sourced ingredients and only costs around $10.”
