The Importance of the Dough: The dough is the heart of every pizza. This is where the magic comes from, which goes through fermentation, elasticity and flavour. Choosing the right dough is crucial to get the pizza of your dreams. But how to make the right choice? Don't worry, we are here to guide you through the process.

  1. Know the Types of Flour: Choosing the flour is the first step. The flour “0” it is ideal for a light and crunchy pizza, while a whole-wheat flour will add depth of flavor and texture. Choose the one that best suits the desired end result.
  2. Hydration game: Water is the magical element that makes the dough elastic and leavened. Hydration refers to the ratio of the amount of water to flour. The higher the hydration, more alveoli will have the dough. Experiment to find the right balance between texture and manageability.
  3. Leavening time: Patience is the key here. A long leavening time develops the flavors of the dough and makes the pizza more digestible. If you are in a hurry, you can opt for a shorter leavening, but you will miss some nuances.
  4. The Art of Ingredients: Don't forget to consider the rest of the ingredients when making your choice. A delicate dough may require a light seasoning, while a more robust dough can handle abundant toppings.
