Chef’s Tips

The quantities to prepare the dough here indicated could slightly vary according to type of flour you will use.
So keep some extra flour and water aside, in order to add them to the dough when necessary to gain the right consistency, which is a smooth and elastic dough, easy to clean off the hands and the working table.
