Pizza Doughs are already fully proofed. Follow instructions below to thaw properly.

Room Temperature: Remove dough from package. Place on very lightly floured counter or sheet pan. Cover but do not allow the cover to touch the dough (an inverted Tupperware or bowl works well) or use a properly fitted sheet pan cover . Allow to thaw at room temperature about 3 hours .

Refrigerator/Overnight: Remove dough from package. Place on very lightly floured sheet pan. Cover but do not allow the cover to touch the dough (an inverted Tupperware or bowl works well) or use a properly fitted sheet pan cover. If no sheet pan cover, it’s best to wrap the entire setup in plastic wrap to avoid drying out the dough. Allow to thaw in the fridge 12 hours, but it may stay in fridge up to 2 days. When ready to use, remove from fridge, allow covered dough to come to room temperature 1-2 hours.

  1. We attended the Dinner in Florence class and it was awesome! We have been trying the recipes and did well with the crepes. However, when making the cantucci it seems like ours came out very flat and doughy. We’re we supposed to wait for he baking powder to work it’s magic before baking? Also, when can we come buy more Romano and Ricotta cheese? Yours were excellent!

    1. Hey Dave,
      So glad you enjoyed the class! The cantucci are fairly simple to make and the formula I gave you in class is exactly correct. You can bake them directly after forming or rest them in the fridge. Did you use a scale to weigh all the ingredients, including the eggs? Did you over mix the dough? Was your butter too soft? Was your oven at the correct temperature (do you have a thermometer in your oven)? Did you bake the loaf until it was completely set? If so, did you slice the cantucci after they cooled and bake them again? With a little more information I can help you troubleshoot.

      The school store is open during class and events only so, you would have to be in attendance to purchase products such as our Pecorino Romano D.O.P and Whole Milk Ricotta Impastata.
      For more trouble shooting of recipes, you can contact me directly by clicking on CONTACT US. Hope to see you in class again soon.
