Pizza Dough Fermentation Definition

Fermentation is the process by which yeast metabolizes or consumes simple sugars to produce carbon dioxide and alcohol.

Fermentation occurs as the yeast in dough becomes active; this is what causes the rising of the dough, or proving.

Fermentation improves the texture and flavor of the dough.
