Pizza dough; no knead?

Pizza dough; no knead?

This is directed to Floydm:I read your piece entitled 'A Pizza Primer.' I notice you refer to stirring the dough, resting and stirring again. Is that another way of referring to kneading the dough or do you really mean to stir it as with a large spoon. It seems I would want to use the dough hook on a standing mixer but now I'm confused.DavidPS - I'm new to this post and not sure I'm going to find my way back in to see your answer. Please be kind enough to send it to as well.Thank you

Hi Throwdini.

Welcome to the site.

I think stirring/mixing/kneading, any of them will do. Basically you are letting time do the work, not your hands or mixer, so as long as your ingredients are well mixed and a little bit of work has been done to start freeing the gluten, you should be good.

Good luck.
