8 hour dough?
« on: December 20, 2011, 01:02:09 PM »
I see lots of techniques here for emergency dough, they seem to be for a few hours at room temp. What if I have 8 or 10 hours, and want to use a Lehman NY style pizza dough. Is it best to leave out at room temp, of stash in the fridge?

Any advice is appreciated..

When I make dough in the morning I ball up, place the ball in an oiled container and stick it in the fridge. Pull it out a couple of hours before needed to warm up. Works for me.

I generally give it 1 hour on the counter in bulk, ball it, then fridge it until I use it (6-168 hours later).

Makes sense, just didn't know if leaving it at room temp for 8 hr was recommended.

I have done that with regular doughs and almost always do so with Caputo doughs (leave it out for 8 hours).

When I have done the 8 hr dough I have let it stay out. WHat I have found that works for me is to do a bulk rise, punch it down and let it do another bulk rise. Then, I ball and proceed. It seems to work.
