Caputo Criscito represents a variety of dried yeast flour, providing a convenient method for crafting pizza dough and breads with a delightful sourdough flavor. Resembling a 'dormant' sourdough mother, this dried yeast flour imparts the taste and airy texture characteristic of sourdough, eliminating the necessity for a starter.
To activate this dried yeast flour, blend it with your regular flour and introduce a separate portion of fresh yeast. Caputo recommends incorporating 20-50g of Criscito dried yeast for every kilogram of standard flour. This blend results in a wonderfully elastic dough with an appealing open texture.
