Neapolitan Style Dough Procedure

Place water into mixer bowl along with the salt and mix with dough hook for 2 minutes on low speed or until dissolved. Add Flour and yeast then mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Check bowl characteristics**.

Continue mixing for 8 minutes on low speed.

Remove dough from bowl and allow to rest for 15 - 30 minutes (keep dough covered to prevent drying).

Divide and round dough into desired portions.

Place dough balls into tote or on sheet pans lightly coated with vegetable oil or flour. Cover and refrigerate.

Remove dough from refrigerator and allow dough to warm to room temperature for approximately 60-90 minutes or until 60ºF minimum.

** Bowl Characteristics: At about 2 minutes the dough should be releasing from the sides of the bowl but still be sticking to the bottom. If it is too wet and sticking to the bottom add a little more flour. If the dough is too dry and clinging only to the hook add more water.
