Ingredients

  • 1 kg flour 00
  • 600 ml water
  • 3 gr dried yeast
  • 15 gr salt

Instructions

  • To prepare the dough for the pizza, start pouring the flour in a large mixer bowl.
  • In a small bowl add luke-warm water and then add the yeast, mixing gently until the yeast is dissolved.
  • Turn the mixer on with the hook mounted on medium-to-low speed and start pouring the water little by little, making sure you wait for the previous dose to be absorbed by the flour.
  • Keep kneading until the dough gets smooth and homogeneous. When it gets to that point, keep kneading for about 15/20 minutes.
  • Add the salt and keep the mixer running until the salt is fully combined with the dough.
  • When the salt is fully absorbed, remove the dough from the mixer and knead with your hands until you get a large ball.
  • Place it in a large bowl, cover with foil or a clean humid cloth, then let it rise in the oven with the light on.
  • Wait until the mixture has at least doubled in volume (after 1.5 h). Ideally, you should let it triple in size (at least 3 hours).
  • Once the dough has risen, transfer it on a work surface.
  • Divide it into 4 equal parts and shape them as balls using your hands. Once done, cover them with a clean cloth and let them stand for 30 minutes at room temperature, before using them to make your pizzas.
