Important Dough Guidelines

  1. Keep in the fridge for up to 50 days.
    ** Speed up proofing by placing the vacuum-sealed dough in a bowl of hot water. Let it sit for 20 minutes or until the center reaches room temperature. **

  2. Round the dough with flour to prevent sticking, brush with olive oil, put in a bowl, and cover.

  3. Let the dough rise for at least 3.5 hours before using.

  4. Preheat your oven to 475°F or higher, if possible.

    Rounding pizza dough is a crucial step in the pizza-making process.
