Semolina Pizza Dough Recipe

Our Durum Wheat Semolina for Pizza rich in proteins, with high hydration capacity is ideal for long leavening. During the leavening, a tightly meshed gluten network forms, which allow the dough to increase in volume, remaining compact, homogeneous and easy to work with. The result is a crunchy pizza, with a large honeycomb, easy to digest and with the unmistakable fragrance of wheat.
