Leavening and ripening: flour and times make the difference
Exist strong flours, richer in gluten, with which you have elastic dough, soft and resistant, and others weaker, which form a lower glutinic mesh (and therefore result in a drier and brittle pizza, less fluffy). For pizza, strong ones are usually preferred, so in fact you can get a better development of the dough with a greater honeycomb (i.e. those holes that form in the dough and make it light). To recognize if a flour is strong, take a look at the packaging: you will find here the coefficient W. Choose a product that has a W greater than 250 (such as manitoba for example, which can be used alone or mixed in a dough at 00). For maturation and leavening it will take 12 to 24 hours.
First and second leavening
Once the dough is ready, place it in a bowl greased with a little oil and cover it with a tea towel or cling film so as to preserve the humidity. We can do one double leavening: one, in fact, in a container and a second directly in the pan. If you use a strong flour, after 12/20 hours, you can spread the dough in the pan, then cover it with tea towels and let it rise for another two hours before baking. It is important that the final temperature both of 25 or 26 ° C.
