Pizza dough with durum wheat flour


This pizza dough with the addition of durum wheat flour is a long rising pizza. Compared to the classic pizza dough with bread flour or all-purpose flour, using durum wheat flour in the dough makes it easier to digest. The slow rising let you prepare the dough the day before in the evening and then bake crispy and delicious pizza during the next day.
