Salah Bouremmane's Pizza

This recipe is from Shipton Mill's "Discover Italian Baking" Day.

Note: The method used in the class uses added yeast to speed the fermentation process for the purposes of teaching. A traditional pizza dough uses only biga for fermentation which gives a better flavour to the bread, hence the fermentation process will be slower when you do the recipe at home unless you choose to add yeast. The timings given here are for a biga only recipe. If you are using yeast, reduce the timings for each of the proves below by 10min and load your pizza into the oven as soon as you have added the toppings.
