Dough up but make sure you add the sponge half way through the development to avoid the sponge part over developing.

Stand in bulk covered to avoid skinning for 1 hour and then scale into 60 to 80 gram units mould into a rough round and give 15 mins intermediate proof.

Then mould into your final shape prove for 40 mins covered to avoid skinning and bake at 2300c for 12 mins.
