Let’s Make Basic Overnight Pizza Dough
1
Flip your dough onto a generously floured countertop. Generously flour the top too.
2
Use your fingers to indent around the edge to create a “crust,” rotating the dough as you go.
3
Gently pick the dough up by the crust. Rotate it through your hands, letting gravity pull it down.
4
Place the dough on the back of one hand. Use the back of your other hand to lift & rotate the dough.
5
Keep rotating and stretching on the backs of your hands.
6
If the dough gets too fragile to hold up you can stretch the edges gently with your fingers.
7
Transfer onto a well floured pizza peel and gently stretch back into a circle shape.
8
Add your cheese and toppings.
9
Give it a shake to make sure it doesn’t stick to the peel.
10
Bake on a pre-heated baking steel at 500F for 4-5 mins. Enjoy!
