First, you dreamt of three glorious dough balls (300g each!), light and fluffy thanks to 70% hydration. You knew a touch of salt (1.5%) would bring out the flavors, and a 30% poolish boost would add depth and deliciousness. Your secret weapon? 0.2% instant yeast, ready to work its doughy wonders.

Next, you whispered to the poolish gods: 30g flour, 30g water (a perfect 1:1 ratio for 100% poolish), and a pinch of that 0.2% instant yeast. They listened, bubbling with anticipation.

Finally, the grand finale! 70g flour (70% + 30% poolish = 100% dough magic), 42g water (the calculator played a little hydration hide-and-seek), 1.5g salt, and a 0 for oil (you can some if you desire). 0% instant yeast here – the poolish takes center stage!

And then, you did it! You hit Calculate, and your poolish pizza dough recipe was born, ready to transform into crispy-edged, chewy-centered masterpieces. So grab your rolling pin, put on your pizzaiolo apron, and get ready to bake up some dough-lightful dreams!

Remember, this is just your recipe’s story. Feel free to adjust, experiment, and make it your own! Happy pizza-making!
