The Secret of Freshness The Best Temperature to Store Flours and Yeast in the Magic of Pizza.

Dear friends of good food and pizza, today we explore a fundamental aspect to guarantee the quality of our doughs: the storage temperature of the flours and yeast. Get ready to discover the secret that makes our pizza always fresh and delicious!

Let's start with the preparation of the dough, the art that gives life to an extraordinary pizza. Flour is the main ingredient, and its freshness is fundamental. Storing flour in the right way is like guarding a treasure that will give life to light and fragrant dough.

To get the most out of flour, it is essential to keep it protected from humidity and temperature variations. A cool, dry place is ideal. We avoid dispensing the flour directly from the package at the time of preparation, thus allowing any moisture to penetrate. Use airtight containers to keep the flour protected and ready to create perfect dough.

An equally crucial aspect is the conservation of the yeast, the soul that gives life to the dough. The freshness of yeast is the key to an optimally leavened pizza. Store the yeast in the refrigerator, maintaining a constant temperature between 2°C and 8°C. Remember to seal the yeast well to avoid contamination and loss of effectiveness.

Speaking of temperatures, Let's get to the heart of the matter: what is the ideal temperature for storing flour and yeast in the pizzeria? For the flours, a cool temperature around 15°C is recommended. Make sure the storage location is well ventilated to avoid heat buildup.

The yeast, on the other hand, finds its best home in the refrigerator, but be careful not to freeze it. A temperature between 2°C and 8°C keeps the yeast in a state of restful sleep, ready to wake up and do its magical work during the preparation of the dough.

In addition to conservation, we also consider the temperature when preparing the dough. A temperature-controlled environment facilitates the leavening process, allowing the yeast to act uniformly. The magic of pizza starts right here, when fresh and correctly stored ingredients blend together to create soft and fragrant dough.

When it comes to cooking, Oven temperature is another crucial aspect. A perfect pizza requires cooking at high temperatures. Pizzeria ovens are designed to reach temperatures ranging between 300°C and 400°C. This ensures quick and even cooking, creating that thin, crispy crust we all love.

Speaking of pizza, we cannot forget the importance of maintaining consistency in temperatures. From the stove to the preparation of the dough, from storage to cooking, each phase requires attention to temperature to guarantee the final result that will satisfy the most demanding palates.
