How to Make the Poolish Pizza Dough Recipe?
You can make a fabulous poolish pizza using a poolish starter. Now, getting the dough right is always going to be challenging. In Italy, people are training their guts off to get the dough right. While traveling in Italy, we had a chat with a pizza master. He said a true level 10 Neapolitan pizza is not easy. It takes time, precision, and plenty of effort in getting the dough right.
Now, we can’t guarantee you will get level 10 but we think we reached level 7 at most. Of course, making the poolish is the first essential part of this recipe. Poolish is mainly pizza dough fermentation which will increase the crust and enhance flavors.
Thanks to the poolish, you will get soft pizza pie. Not to mention, the fragrant and aromatic pizza will give you an Italian taste. You have to place the poolish tightly covered in a pot and bring it out only before making your dough.
Now, when you make the poolish, it will have an almost soupy texture. And the hydration content inside the pizza dough fermentation will deliver a chewy and crumbly pizza.
Making the dough is going to be a little hard. If you don’t have a good hand at kneading the dough, you can’t get a perfect dough. Anyway, it’s worth the try at least. Just follow our simple instructions and collect the following ingredients first.
How to Prepare the Vito Iacopelli Poolish?
In order to prepare the poolish pizza, you have to spend a day or two. First, you have to collect a large container that can be sealed tight. For our poolish, we need 200 gm water, 5 gm active yeast, 5 gm honey, and 200 gm 00 flour. However, you can use AP flour for the pizza dough.
First, combine all the ingredients except flour into the container. Then, add in the flour and mix them until there are no dry spots. Let the container sit for 15 minutes without covering it. After 15 minutes, you have to cover the container. Finally, refrigerate the container for 12-14 hours. However, make sure you don’t keep it longer in the fridge.
When the poolish is ready, you can gather all the ingredients to make the dough.
