Shaping

Shaping Pizza Dough Balls is a skill that significantly influences the outcome of the final pizza. After dividing the well-fermented dough into individual portions, the dough ball shaping stage involves creating round balls to establish surface tension.

To create a dough ball, place dough portion between your hands and fold in the edges by pressing them into the center of the dough. With the seam side facing away from you, rotate the ball ninety degrees. Repeat this process about 25-35 times.
