How to Knead Dough

Step 1

  • Sprinkle the work surface with flour to ensure the dough doesn’t stick to the surface.

Step 2

  • Press down on the dough with your fingertips about a quarter of the way up.

Step 3

  • Then, in a smooth motion use the heel of your hand to press the dough down and away from you.

Step 4

  • Cup your hand and scrape the dough back on top of itself and turn it 90 degrees clockwise.

Step 5

  • Continue this action for approximately 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and springy.

How to tell if your dough is ready

  • There should be no lumps left in the dough, it should have a smooth finish.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and using a floured finger press into the side of the dough.
  • If the dough springs back it is ready.
  • Alternatively, you can do the window pane test. This method involves taking the dough and holding it up to a light, if you can see the light through the membrane of the dough, it is ready.
