  • Let the dough rest for 5 minutes and then stir for another minute. The dough should be soft and slightly sticky. Add more flour or water a little bit at a time to achieve this consistancy.
  • Add 1 Tbsp olive oil to a smooth work surface. (i.e. granite) to create an oil circle about 12 inches across.
  • Stretch and fold the dough as shown in the video. Cover with a bowl and let it rest for 5 minutes. (Peter Rheinharts technique)

  • Repeat the stretch and folds 3 more times at 5-minute intervals. Add more oil to the work surface if the dough starts to stick. The dough becomes firmer and less sticky with each stretch and fold.

  • After the final stretch and fold put the dough into a gallon ziplock bag sprayed with a nonstick coating and place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Or you can put the dough back in the bowl and let it rise until double in size, about 1 hour. Then use the dough for your favorite pizza recipe, sausage bread, stromboli, or calzones. Also delicious for garlic knots and garlic breadsticks.
