    Hello Mrs Hariprasad, This is probably the best recipe for pizza i have come across. Thanks a ton for sharing ... Regards Sudeep

    It is called as resting the dough which makes it more pliable to use. Keeping more than 2 hrs makes the dough hard to stretch out. I have never kept for more than 2 hrs...u can try at ur risk.


    Why do we need to put the dough in to the refrigerator? What if I keep the dough in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours? Please reply for the comment.
