This Vital Ingredient Can Make Your Pizza Dough Rise To The Occasion
Anyone who decides to turn their hand to baking their own pizza obviously wants to achieve the best results possible.
As the popularity of making your own pizzas has grown, so has the number of gadgets and gizmos marketed at an ever-burgeoning market. However, whatever those manufacturers may try to tell you, the harsh reality is that whatever you put into your pizza will directly correlate to the taste, quality and texture of the finished pizza.
By choosing high-quality ingredients, you significantly increase the likelihood of a delicious pizza, and it is no secret that the flour you choose is the single most crucial ingredient.
What Are The Preferred Characteristics of A Good Quality Pizza Flour?
The key to choosing any flour for any purpose lies in your ability to be able to read and understand the characteristics of the flour.
The Strength of The Flour
The strength of the flour you choose is even more critical to the quality of the pizza than the degree of flour refinement. The strength is denoted by the protein value of the flour. Importantly, this is not just the percentage of protein but also the quality of that protein - better quality grains have better quality proteins. Those proteins form the structure of the dough, essentially dictating how long it will rise for without deflating, which is critical to know for any pizza. At Nelstrops we use the very highest quality grains and therefore proteins, which in turn make the very best quality pizzas.
