Those who do not like too dirty hands, may use a planetary mixer, purchased at any electrical shop. Is less suitable for the bread machine though with small hydration doughs and not pushed too (60%) can be used.

When you knead, you have to follow a few simple rules.

  1. We start from the water, dissolving into the yeast Beer.
  2. Add the sifted flour; Sift the flour prevents the formation of clots but above all gives a good oxygenation of the
  3. Salt should be added just before the closing of the dough.
  4. It stops when kneading the dough forms a compact mass and shine, if you're mixing with a mixer, detaches completely from the bowl.
  5. If you use any fat, these are inserted only when the dough is already closed, slow, making them well absorb.
  6. Close a mixture is more or less simple depending on the flour used and the amount of water used; more flour is a strong, the easier it is to enter the amount of water more. The round Neapolitan-style pizza using flour of medium strength with hydration rather low, around 60%.
  7. In any case it is important not knead excessively because in this way is likely to unduly heat the dough or even ruin; In fact, beyond a certain threshold, the gluten will break down and the mixture is no longer usable.
  8. If you are having difficulty in closing the dough, rather than continue to knead it is better to stop the mixer to 5 the 10 minutes, flip the dough and continue to knead; the operation can be repeated several times if necessary.

To calculate the ingredients, we start with the number of pizzas we want to accomplish and weight; if we want to do 4 pats from 250 grams for each 4 people we need 1kg of dough, then we will need to 1000 / 1,60 = 625 grams of flour, the rest is calculated in proportion:

    1. Flour of medium strength (W240) 625 grams
    2. Water (60% flour) 375 grams
    3. Sale (2,5% flour) 15 grams
    4. Yeast (0,2% flour) 1,2 grams
