1. Put the flour, salt, and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to
combine. Pour the water over the dry ingredients. Using your
hands or a bowl scraper, work the ingredients to form a dough.
Knead a few more times, and then cover and let sit at room
temperature for at least 16 or up to 24 hours.
2. Fold the dough over a few times, then use in your favorite panpizza style.
NOTE: This recipe can be made in a food processor or stand
mixer; see tips on page 7.
*If using instant yeast, prepare as written. If using active dry
yeast, it must be proofed in warm (105°F-110°F) water first.
Sprinkle the yeast into the warm water and once it gets foamy,
it is ready to use. All other dry ingredients can be mixed as
written above.
