Leavening and maturation of the pizza, the differences

Leavening and maturation of the pizza, the differences. The leavening is intended as an increase in the volume of the dough given by yeast which fermenting produces carbon dioxide trapped in the gluten structure, fermentative action, unlike the maturation that corresponds to a set of processes not due to the dough, but that concerns the more complex structures, fatty starches and proteins which are broken down into simpler elements.

Leavening and maturation of the pizza, the differences.

A good pizza chef knows perfectly well that the ripening and leavening times are completely different, it's up to him to bake the pizza at the right time. There are flour on the market that can also reach 72 hours of maturation, while we know that the leavening times are much shorter.

Leavening and maturation of the pizza, the differences.

To match the right maturation and leavening time, simply slow down the leavening process by keeping the dough at a temperature of 2/4 degrees, it depends on the strength of the flour used. In doing so, the maturation process will continue, while the leavening will stop.

Leavening and maturation of the pizza, the differences.

After the right hours for the maturation process, you can bring the dough back to room temperature and then start the leavening. As soon as ready, you can bake the pizza. Unfortunately, the maturation process is very important therefore indispensable, helps to obtain color and aromas typical of freshly baked bread, promotes leavening and makes the pizza more digestible.

Focaccia With Dough At Chestnuts

Focaccia With Dough At Chestnuts

Focaccia With Dough At Chestnuts. Test new flour is one of my favorite hobbies. I found on the shelves of a supermarket chestnut flour. very low protein value, about 6 grams (value 100 grams of product). I wonder if preparing a dough with this chestnut flour is unable to obtain a cake that retains the taste of chestnuts?

Back in our laboratories of our School pizzaioli, we prepared a mixture of flour w 280 containing the 20% chestnut flour.

We have prepared a good mix incorporating a lot of air in it. We made up of loaves 270 grams and after having carefully rolled them we have placed in special plastic containers, taking care to cover them well with the proper cover.

We left it to rest for a maturity of 24 hours.

The next day as soon as the balls have reached a perfect leavening'll start with the drafting. To get a perfect cake, We will open the disks of dough manually.

Once the disks of dough spread out with our special dough with chestnut flour, we will flavor the cake with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and the inevitable rosemary needles that give our buns a unique and incomparable.

The strength of the flour in a Mixture

The strength of the flour in a Mixture

The strength of the flour in a Mixture. Let's continue our discussion regarding overall strength of the flour. In simple terms, It represented the strength of the flour with a W, It is an index that allows us to understand how resistant the gluten mesh in a simple dough with flour and water.

The strength of the flour W is the energy required to break the shirt gluten dough, it is the force used to inflate a disc of dough with air until failure.

The greater the strength of the flour (The) and the greater will be the resistance of our dough to long rising and the greater will be the absorption of liquids.

If I decide to prepare a mix of flour, how do I calculate the force (The) my mix?

Simple: if you mix equal amounts of flour, increased, the resulting W will be the average of the strengths of the two flours.

Example: A mix of w200 + w400 in the same amount will give a force: (200+400)/2 =300

If we wish to vary the percentages to obtain more precisely the desired strength, will surely help the underlying spreadsheet.

The strength of the flour in a Mixture

Lately I am known very pleased that more and more manufacturers of flour to make available more information about the product, both on the same bag of flour, both online.

There is another method for calculating the W, is that of multiply by 20 protein value indicated on the bag of flour. It 'a very rough method, but at least it gives us an idea about the type of meal you purchase;.

All these things and many more, They are part of the practical program that we carry out during the professional courses at our school pizza. Subscribe to one of our workshops.

The Rice Flour in Pizzeria

The Rice Flour in Pizzeria. The rice flour is produced by grinding the fruits of “Oryza sativa” belonging to the family Poaceae. E’ a derivative by grinding the fruits of this very important plant for human consumption. these seeds, when they are used for the production of flour undergo a variety of processes which are summarized in this way:

Funding through the harvest, cleaning any residue, the husking or hulling which consists in the elimination of the embryo from its husk and kernels, and finally the bleaching of the grains. I will stop here for now, but if the final product was introduced on the market in its integral form, the processing cycle would be further elongated.

The Rice Flour in Pizzeria

Rice flour, as the wheat flour can be marketed in different forms:

white rice bran

Integral rice bran

white rice flour

Rice meal Integrale

E’ You can find on the market also the rice starch. Despite the appearance it is very similar to the rice flour,They are not absolutely the same product. E’ very true that the rice flour has a high starch composition containing very little protein, fibers and lipids, but the rice starch is obtained by an additional powder manufacturing process which makes it strongly increase its thickening ability and its solubility eliminating all the residual nutritional parts which do not constitute carbohydrates.

If this may help here is a table of nutritional values ​​of rice flour 100 grams of product:

In our culture “western” the rice flour has a very limited use in the kitchen compared to wheat flour and is only thanks to its content absolutely free of gluten (a protein that causes a strong food intolerance rising sharply in recent times) “gluten-free” hence its reputation. In “East” It happens just the opposite, the rice flour is one of the most used products from the diet of these people and is present in many their recipes, I'd like to name but a few that are known and appreciated even by Westerners: the famous rice noodles and delicious sweet mochi.

The rice flour is perfect for the preparation of pasta dishes, some cakes which rise chemically (bicarbonate), in the production of some types of biscuits and for use in the production of bread unleavened. Delicious when used to coat certain types of fried and finally is often used in our kitchens as a thickener for puddings, soups and sauces.

The main features of the rice flour are the total absence of gluten, a higher content of starch compared to protein and fat, increased energy intake, low content of alimentary fibers, lower content of mineral salts except for phosphorus.

The Rice Flour in Pizzeria

Pizzeria in the rice flour is virtually absent. I tried dozens of times to prepare a mixture exclusively with rice flour, even during our professional pizza maker courses we treat the rice flour, but certainly not exclusively for doughs made with this product. does not rise. The final product is not a pizza, even remotely similar. Instead the addition of a small percentage of rice flour in the dough is of utility(2-3% max) to increase the strength of the flour. A good example is the now famous “Romanian Pinsa“, the mixture for the mixture of this pizza contains a small percentage of rice flour.

To our friends who have celiac disease always recommend….a nice steak with french fries, but never something that gives the illusion of a pizza that will not be very good to eat.
