Default Pizza Balls in South Africa

Hi guys,

What is difference between rising and proofing?
If I make pizza balls ahead of time, do I proof for an hour then refridgerate, or can one proof after the balls come out the refrigerator.
Assuming one proofs before going in to fridge, what - if anything- must happen to balls once they come out of fridge and before they are shaped into pizzas??
Thks TT

There are a lot of different ways of doing this. I do a bulk rise (4 or 8 balls worth) at warm room temperature until bulk doubles, then divide into balls, into containers, and into the fridge directly for 2-4 days. That's just what I do, there are lots of different methods.

Just leave them out long enough to go from cold to cool, two hours in the winter, 45 minutes in the summer. I use a silicone spatula to push down any bubbles, pull it out onto a floured board, and shape it without any additional kneeding. You want to handle the dough gently at this point or it's going to become very "rubber bandy"
