“The dough is the most important part of the pizza” Hasse always says. “If you want the extraordinary good experience, then you need to invest som time and love into how you make the dough. It is not a 5 minute exercise, but the reward is worth the time”. When you have the background as a baker, and the equipment like a professional, then it is easier to make the perfect dough. Hasse admits that, and he even say that he also sometimes go to the local pizzaria and buy some dough , when he is in a hurry.
