KNEAD THE DOUGH: WITH THE DOUGH HOOK IN THE MIXER KNEAD THE DOUGH FOR 2 TO 3 MINUTES ON MEDIUM-LOW SPEED. AS YOU KNEAD ADD FLOUR OR WATER AS NEEDED TO PRODUCE A BALL OF DOUGH THAT IS SMOOTH, SUPPLE, AND FAIRLY TACKY BUT NOT STICKY. CHILL THE DOUGH: FORM THE DOUGH INTO A TIGHT BALL. IT SHOULD HAVE A SMOOTH SKIN TO IT. LIGHTLY OIL A BOWL THAT’S TWICE THE SIZE OF THE DOUGH. ROLL THE DOUGH IN THE BOWL TO COAT IT WITH THE OIL, COVER THE TOP OF THE BOWL TIGHTLY WITH PLASTIC WRAP, AND REFRIGERATE FOR AT LEAST 8 HOURS AND UP TO 3 DAYS. IT WILL RISE SLOWLY IN THE REFRIGERATOR BUT WILL STOP GROWING ONCE COMPLETELY CHILLED. FORM THE DOUGH: REMOVE THE DOUGH FROM THE REFRIGERATOR AND CUT INTO INDIVIDUAL SERVINGS (4 EQUAL PARTS).
