Wood Stone Dough

Is it possible to create artisan-quality dough that can accommodate the rigors of a fast moving kitchen? Absolutely. Based on our Wood Stone West Coast Dough recipe, this dough was crafted in our Bellingham test kitchen as a “24-hour dough,” one that rises slowly in the refrigerator overnight and is ready to bake the next day. The addition of aged dough to this recipe imparts artesan flavors, while the high protein content of All-Trumps flour gives it a crisp, melt-in-your-mouth texture. We use this versatile dough for everything from pizzas to crackers to Focaccia. YIELD 27 lbs.
