Tips & Tricks: Pre-Toast Flour for Pro Pizza



At that trendy pizzeria where you order your favorite wood-fired pies, the beardy cooks likely dust their work areas with raw flour and then use it to keep dough from sticking to any surfaces.

“Gluten” is a word that gets tossed around a lot these days, but most people don’t know much about it. Aran Goyoaga is not most people.
