Allow Dough to Rise

Giora Shimoni
Cover the dough in the bowl with a towel, and let rise for 10 minutes. Knead the dough in the bowl for a few minutes. Then cover the dough in the bowl again and let rise for 10 more minutes.

With hands lightly greased in oil, remove the dough from the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for an hour.

With hands lightly greased in oil, punch down the dough. Punching down releases trapped gasses and enables ideal rising of the shaped loaves. Knead and punch for a few more minutes.
