I despise the second proofing of bread dough – you know, after you’ve let it rise in bowl, and have shaped it into a loaf, buns, or rounds for pizza? I hate it because it needs to be covered, but it’s so hard to cover it with plastic wrap and keep it from sticking to the dough. I used to spray the plastic wrap, but that, too is a pain.
A couple of weeks ago I made a big batch of pizza dough and realized I could just cover the dough balls with plastic containers or bowls to keep the air from getting to them while they were doing the second rise. Easy peasy!
Hello, there, little Pizza Dough Ball.
Granted, my counter looks little weird with a bunch of upside down containers on it, but my family doesn’t judge if I make them bread.
