Well I tried this method again, and it worked great. I mixed for 1 minute at speed 6 or 7, let it rest for 10 minutes, and did another minute at 6 or 7. Let it rest 10 minutes, balled, done. Very quick, very easy. Dough was very soft & malleable after that last rest, and the ball was very smooth, no tears.
Dough stretched well & had good strength. Good pizza!
