Slow Rise Pizza Dough

Makes 2 large thick crust pizzas or 4 thin crust Prep Time 48 hours   Cook Time 5 minutes   Rated:


This recipe appears in my newest book, Tenina’s America, which you can order now! I was inspired initially by my reading about slow rise doughs and then when I met the amazing team at Bistro Bella Vista, they were doing it already and on a commercial scale. Truly, if you haven’t eaten a great pizza, this dough is the first building block you need towards heaven! It is better for you (just ask Luka) and although you have to think about it a little in advance, it is certainly easier on your system to digest the slow risen cooked dough.

SO channel your pizza queen/king, and plan ahead! You can always freeze the bases before cooking!
