Add the olive oil and salt. Mix until the dough is smooth.

Step 5:

Let the dough rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. After this time, mix again to tighten the gluten.

  • I’ve made most of the doughs on this website in my Signature Roccbox (the black one). It’s my fave, for sure. Even made amazing calzones. I loved all the pizzas I ate on the streets of Rome.
