We are busy with cheese all week, but when we have the weekend off, we like nothing more than making pizza. That’s why I like to share the authentic recipe for pizza dough that we got from a professional pizza baker from Italy

Don’t forget to order flour that you can roll out your pizza in so it doesn’t stick to the counter. We recommend Caputo semola .

What is the difference between Caputo pizzeria and chef?

Let’s assume that you bake a delicious pizza with both types. The choice for pizzeria or chef is often one of personal preference. Professional Italian pizzerias bake with both. It just depends on which pizza baker you meet. We do have an explanation that makes your choice easier.

Caputo Pizzeria:

This is a type of flour with a slightly less strong gluten structure than red. This is ideal for dough that rises for a shorter time (up to 24 hours). Because the gluten structure is weaker, the yeast can ferment faster. 24 hours is the minimum rising time we recommend for a real Neapolitan pizza. We can therefore say that pizzeria is better suited for dough that rises unrefrigerated .

The elastic gluten structure and soft starch help to perfectly hydrate the dough. It is light, fine and rises perfectly. This is the ideal flour for a real Neapolitan pizza. This dough is suitable for baking at high temperatures in a short time.

Caputo chef (formerly cuoco):

Ideal for dough that rises longer (+- 48 hours). The longer your dough rises, the more complex the taste becomes. If you leave dough to rise for longer than 24 hours, we recommend storing it in a cold environment (refrigerated, or colder if room temperature). We can therefore say that Caputo chef is better for dough that rises chilled . This ensures that the dough rises less quickly and therefore does not ferment too far. If your dough is flat, has superficial air bubbles and smells like alcohol, it’s fermented too far. The gluten structure of Caputo chef is stronger than that of Caputo pizzeria, the W value is 300 and that of blue is 260.
