  6. After 72 hours, remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for 1-2 hours before using.

  7. Divide the dough into equal portions and shape into balls.

  8. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes before rolling out and adding toppings.

  • Preheat your oven for at least 30 minutes before baking.
  • Add toppings sparingly to avoid a soggy crust.
  • Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing.
