  • pizza dough

    I am slightly confused here a little help please .
    I am about to try the forno bravo pizza dough recipe for the 1st time .It looks great as I have been trying to get my dough right for some time.

    After the dough been left to autolyse the next step " add the salt and yeast and mix the dough for a further 5 mins "
    The recipe states 325g to water to the 500g flour .The active dry yeast requires 150 ml water to activate .
    At the point where I am adding salt and yeast is this activated yeast in the 150ml of water or is it dried unactivated yeast mixed in with the salt and dough ?

    I have only made it four times so far but I used an active dry yeast which I activated with warm water following the directions on the packet of yeast. I am new at this but my dough seemed to turn out pretty well.

      I also only use ADY these days but have experimented with "fresh yeast" which requires dissolving in warm water first. I used the complete 325 ml for this purpose and brought it up to room temp first to get it activated...

        Use instant yeast. That way you don't have to activate it and you can mix it in dry. (NOTE: if you don't activate regular dried yeast it will be very slow to get going. The instant dried yeast has a higher content of live yeast cells).

        Good Luck!
