Acrobatic Dough Recipe and Procedure

Calculate the number of pounds or ounces of dough you need to make, keeping in mind, it’s best used within a twenty-four hour period. We use two 8 oz. dough balls pressed together to make one acrobatic dough.

Flour 100.00%
Water (75% Ice Cold, 25% 75°) 52.68%
Oil 1.37%
Salt 3.91%
Sugar 0.39%
Red Star Dry Active Yeast 0.20%

  • Place water and salt in mixing bowl.
  • Stir and let salt dissolve for five minutes.
  • Add flour, and mix for five minutes.
  • Add oil last, and mix an additional fifteen minutes.
  • Scale, ball, and place dough balls in lightly oiled pans, and cover with plastic.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • This dough will be dry and harder than regular pizza dough, but proves very durable for acrobatic purposes.
