Cross Stacking 

Cross stacking is the perpendicular placement of dough boxes, one on top of the other at 90-degree angles.

This placement allows the air to circulate the dough balls while cooling.

Dough balls should generally be cross-stacked for at least two hours if they weigh 16 ounces or less.

Anything above 22 ounces should be cross-stacked for three hours, while dough balls from 17 to 22 ounces should be cross-stacked for two and a half hours.

The dough balls must be cross-stacked for the required time; then, they must be adequately sealed to avoid drying.
