So, you need a nice big work surface and a smooth work surface, so that you can pull all of this pizza dough together really well. As you can see it's starting to come together very nicely. And in just a little bit we're going to start the kneading process, so I think I'm going to start that now. You can see that there is still some flour on the counter, but that will get worked in as we continue to work the dough. Now, the pizza dough is pretty soft, it’s very wet, very moist in the center, and now we're going to start kneading. So, there are several ways to knead. One way to knead the dough is you take a portion of the dough that's farthest away from you, and you fold it over the front portion and then you push away with the heel of your hand. So, I'm pulling the dough towards me and pushing away. Now I'm going to gather up some of this flour and continue. I have this extra dish of flour here, in case this dough picks up all of this flour and needs a little bit more while I am kneading it. It will vary from day-to-day how much flour you might need; some days if it's more humid you might need a little extra flour. So, you're going to continue kneading this for about ten minutes and you can feel the dough change. What you want to do is knead it until you have a nice smooth dough where you’ve developed the gluten. So were kneading the pizza dough and we've been kneading the dough for about ten minutes. It has come together into a nice, very elastic, very soft, dough, that as you can see when I make an imprint into the dough, it comes back completely, and that's what you want. That shows that the gluten has developed in your dough, so that the bread, or in this case the pizza, will rise. So, you want to make just—I mean it will come naturally into a ball shape, which is what you want. Then you just want to put the dough to rise in a bowl like this, cover it with a little plastic or a tea towel and you can leave it out to rise, it will take about two to three hours or you can refrigerate it and let it go overnight and use the dough the next day.
