The secret to the Best Pizza Dough
A small simple step will change the way you make pizza dough!
- COLD WATER! Yes you heard right! Here’s why cold water makes the best dough ever.
Just a disclaimer this does NOT apply to the yeast mixture. It is crucial to have warm water when activating the yeast. That is the only way the yeast will activate.
Here’s why cold water will make a difference in your dough! Cold water dough will make the texture very soft and pliable dough. When you are mixing all the ingredients to the dough, and you notice that the consistency is dry, it needs more water! Adding cold water will fix the solution resulting in an extremely tender dough.
- KNEADING! This process is so important when preparing the dough. Work those hands and start kneading the dough. After the ingredients have been mixed, the proteins are in a random pattern and mixed in together. When the dough is kneaded, the proteins pull together in a way where lines of gluten build a structure for the dough to rise. So work those hands for 10 minutes to have the most perfect dough ever!
