Alfresco Frozen Pizza Dough
From Alfresco: “We use only the best, hand-picked ingredients, perfected recipes, detailed processes and customized, handcrafted Italian pasta machines to make our pasta. We hold our products, people and facilities to the highest standards for safety, consistency, performance and taste.”
Alfresco Pasta uses only unbleached, naturally aged flour in our recipes. The unbleached flour has a rougher texture, and a darker color. The natural aging helps develop the gluten and produce a better pizza crust.
1. Thaw dough slowly in refrigerator before use. This process is called ”cold fermentation”, and we recommend 3-5 days at 38-42 degrees F for the perfect crust, although 24 -48 hours will work fine. This gives the yeast time to react with the sugars and produce very good gluten structure as well as a delicious flavor. Keep in mind fermentation that goes beyond 5 days is not ideal, as your dough will begin losing its ability to rise properly.
2. Remove dough from refrigerator and proof at room temperature or in a proof box until dough rises. Dough can be proofed in the morning for lunch service, and early afternoon for dinner service.
3. Roll Dough to order, score with a dough docker if needed and bake immediately.
4. We recommend rolling the crust thin, but a medium to thick crust will yield good results as well. 5. Adjust your oven temp accordingly until you achieve a crispy outer crust, with a pillow-like, chewy interior.
