Tips about ingredients:
The ideal temperature is between 6°C and 12°C.
In addition to providing flavor, crispness and aroma, salt has properties fundamental for the structure of the dough. It helps the formation of gluten with shorter meshes and makes the dough more firm and less elastic. It also improves preservation of the dough and slows its leavening.
In general, the recommended amounts vary between 1.2% and 2.5% on the finished product depending on the type of processing.
The type of oil used in the dough must be chosen based on the quality and sensory characteristics you want to achieve.
For example, extra virgin olive oil gives an olive flavor and aroma and a more crumbly crust.
Cold-pressed sunflower oil (a very common and good alternative of olive oil for pizza), gives a more delicate aroma and flavor and a crisper crust.
