The soy flour is very suitable for the preparation of pizzas, buns, bread, confectionery, biscuits and cakes.

In pizzeria are many of my colleagues pizza dough that add to each a small percentage of soy flour.

The percentage varies from a 10% until you get to a 15-20% added to wheat flour.

When we add the soy flour at our dough, we must take account of 2 very important factors:

The soybean has a high content of protein, so beware the leavening, needs a long rising in a refrigerator that depending on the percentage of added soy, It can reach up to 48-60 hours of leavening, see for example the type pizza “Romanian Pinsa”. Another factor to which we must pay close attention to is that the soybean meal during cooking darkens much more compared to other cereal flours.

The addition of soy flour to the dough for pizza is perfect for those who are already used to working with long rising in the fridge, but absolutely not recommended for all those who prepare the pizza on Sunday in only a few hours at the delicate stage of leavening. A mixture with addition of soya flour that is highly protein will never reach maturation in two hours.

  1. Being intolerant to wheat and rice which other flour can mix the soy to make pizza dough? The corn might be fine? Soy flour can also be used alone to make the dough?
