Benefit of making dough rise twice?
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:06:00 PM »
Noob here,

saw a youtube video where the person recommended pushing the dough down again after the initial rise and then leaving it to rise a second time.

Granted, that was a video for a NY style pie (if I'm not mistaken).

1- What do the experts here say about this?

2- Would you recommend this for a Sicilian pizza?

Thanks in advance.

This forum is cool.

Do you believe everything you see on youtube videos? Enough said.
Pizza is not bread.

9slicePie,

If what you are referring to is only a Sicilian dough, yes I have left a balled dough in a pan, then pressed the dough out in the pan and then left it rise (proof) before baking.  The dough also can be put spread in a pan after mixing and relaxing and given a second proof.

Always working and looking for new information!

norma, I'm talking about making a dough ball, letting it rise, then pushing it down again, and then letting it rise for a second time before even putting in the pan.

1. I doubt if it is more than a very small minority here with even a small modicum of experience does that.
2. No
