First rising..
1 Attachment(s)
I have 20 or more friends coming over for a PizzaFest late tomorrow arvo so I made the dough today to be well prepared.
Ive made dough before but this first rising took me by surprise to say the least....:D
I had the bucket only half full of dough expecting it to rise to the top only...:rolleyes: then the glad wrap came out, and out as it just kept on rising.

Re: First rising..
Cool! How did you manage that? Mine usually goes oven the edge and oozes all over the kitchen or fridge...

Re: First rising..
I have no idea why it happened, I used the usual recipe of 500grams of flour, 2 teaspoons of dry yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 cups of water.

It just kept rising and rising, I half expected it to burst and fill the kitchen with sticky goo....:p

Re: First rising..
Looks like you got your tea spoons mixed up with your tablespoons! (absolutely no offence intended)!. I have had a similar response when I put in a little more yeast than should have.
The sugar will also increase the yeast activity so maybe cut that back a little especially for savoury bases rather than for sweets.
All the best you your pizzathon.

I used the same spoon for all measurements, I pretty sure I counted right.....:D
